This is a concept I'm working on for my portfolio. The problem is, I'm a bit stumped about how to handle some of the details. For example;
-What should I do for the background? Leave it white, or make a lightly patterned backround?
-Should I just resort to realistic lighting? I was going to just leave it painted somewhat realistically, but I gave some areas of the body a set light source for shadows to fall from for a more photorealistic look. Which direction should I go in. I do intend on making the gold piping more realistic though.
-I'm not really looking to change the design of the bike, it's just I'm not really sure what mood I want the image to be in. Should it be dramatic, or more flatly colored?
What do you guys think?
(Sorry about posting in this section, I think this should go in the WIP section. If someone could move it, that would be great.)
