Hey, guys, been a while. So, I guess I'll just jump right in... I was bored today and thought I'd do some more modelling study. I decided to play around with HDR lighting in Maya, so here's what I came up with. Of course, this is a bad render with no planning, but it gives me an idea of what this model could look like in the real world once finished. Notice the difference from the prior test render? I plan on working more with this, so I'll drop some more images later. Any suggestions and info on realistic rendering would be helpful. You know, things to watch out for or things to pay attention to. Also, any tips on creating panoramic HDR images for rendering would help out tons! Thanks in advance guys!
