DAY 8

LIGHTING

I love working on lighting but it does have its frustrations. Currently I am deciding if I want to make the map at night or early morning, dawn. I have included 4 different screenshots at the end testing which lighting example I like the best.

Here I am still working at night scene. Fog is very thick and fog color is dull and grey.

Unreal 3 Lighting

I changed the color of the environment lighting to be more purple and blues. I like this better then previous version.

Below are four examples of possible lighting I may go with. Still haven't decided on the one I will choose.
