Arena Lighting and Surfaces

Well, I finally finished it. Like the kitchen, I feel like there's lots of things I could fix if I spent another 20 hours on it, but I feel like it's just not worth the effort. Hopefully it gets the necessary information across anyway.

  5. Perhaps light bouncing off the floor? It'd create a little bold fill from below which is pretty common in arena sports like MMA and pro-wrestling. But you can keep it darker than the real world stuff, but still add little extra oomph like the Kitchen one.

    No matter what, I love it and check in here every day or two. Keep up the gorgeous work!

  12. Well, I think it looks really really awesome! I love the subtle colors and the lighting is really good as well. Do you use a Cintiq or just a tablet?

  14. Thanks everyone! I'm flattered by all the good feedback on this.

    Hans: Intuos 2 (yeah, I don't even have the cool little buttons on the side yet). I tried a Cintiq the other day though, and it was pretty cool. Not quite $2500 cool yet, though. Maybe better techology eventually?
