Hello, Here’s my light probes assignment. Pics 1 and 3 done on Procreate and 2 on Photoshop. @Dorian Iten, it was lots of fun and a nice opportunity to try out digitally on both - thanks. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Romain

Nice! đź‘Ź Really good colors, values, and terminator ellipses on all of these! A few notes: In image 1, on the head, the specular reflection is a bit too bright. In image 2, the light comes a bit more from the top. See the cast shadow of the nose on the cheek. In image 3, on the jacket, the form light value is a bit too bright. These are nitpicky notes. ;) Great work overall!

Sometimes the lightsource was easy to see ... other times it was just plain guessing. Cool exercise though. Would love to hear feedback from you guys :-)

The only one that I'm really not happy with is the shiny one from the ring location. I found it difficult to get the highlight to have enough contrast with the center light without ending up with dirty lights.

Ouf! That was a hard one. Even with tips on how to find the placement and direction of light sources, I had a lot of trouble visualizing them and figuring out how they would interact with surfaces. While searching for images, a lot of movie scenes turned out to have several different light sources, which was confusing and made me change my choices a few times. I think I ended up picking an image with very simple lighting, which helped, but even then, I'm not so sure about my answers.

I chose coralline for reference. and additionally chose Anthem. I feel interesting about the evil part of coralline uses relatively more light sources. Anyway I submit as I committed.

Well done! Watch out for "ice caps" as well :) Here you can also soften the terminator more to show the soft quality of the light in the scene. I adjusted the light direction slightly, based on the specular reflection in the eyes and nose. (See feedback recording for Module 5.)
