Lighting

The lighting setup was pretty simple. I used one infinite light (Sun) no shadows, two infinite area lights to push up some details and two omni lights (soft shadows 85%) to fill. I also used a skylight with HDRI and an environment object with 10% strength (R: 208 G: 218 B: 221). The image was rendered using Cinema 4D's Advanced Render, with GI (standard settings), AO and multi-pass rendering. I finally imported all the passes into Corel Photo- Paint for further refinement. Here I was able to calibrate the light and provide the mood that I was looking for. It is much easier to control the entire composition using separate passes (Fig.06).

Final Comments

I had a good time and learned a lot throughout the making of this image. I would like to thank 3DTotal for the opportunity and also thanks to all the readers!
