Some lighting tests, rendered using Maya Software. All the images has been modeled, lighted and rendered by me. The shading has been done using default materials, as I wanted to concentrate more on the effect (mood) of the lights.

 November 2005 - lighting studies for the MA final project

These stills represent my studies on lighting in different situations. It is my first personal project that Iím developing using Maya. It is a short film and the main character is a hydrant with its ordinary problems, such as traffic and pollution, weather changes and everything can be stressfull in a big city. I put two phases of the production: the lighting phase and a final rendering test using Maya Software.
