complex AO Study, A little bit hard to differentiate between ambient occlusion and form shadows. Any feedbacks will be greatly appreciated
Here is my take on this exercise. I am not quite sure about the area around the fin or about how far the occlusion shadow should spread but I will get the hang of it with some time :)
It took me a while to get to this exercise so I did a couple of extra views. I thought the airplane would be fun to do, but the top view became more of a rendering exercise because of its flat silhouette. Anyway - it was tempting to add half tone to the plane sketches to bring out some form, but I pulled back (even erased) in hopes of concentrating on AO.
After checking the solution for the monkey, I went back and had another go and tried to pinpoint where I felt like I was consistently making mistakes (not going dark enough, giving the AO too much of a direction, etc)
Continuing to attempt ambient occlusion- first by attempting the demo video and doing two of my own in graphite. Feedback always appreciated.
This is very hard, but I’m okay with the results. I'd hugely appreciate constructive feedback for the homework. Thanks :)
