    I SAW THE SKY - A Short CG Film

    I SAW THE SKY is a short animated film that I've working for a couple of months now, its about a world where the is sky blacked out and the sun never shines.. the main character (Lisa) is a young girl who dies after being imprisoned by strange human like creatures that destroyed the cities of the earth and imprisoned all humanity, she is then resurrected after a couple of decades... and the rest you will find out. Pics of some of work iv been doing the city scape is fig 10 in the story board.

    Its pretty empty right now so I'm gonna add some stuff in it (girl stuff) but need some ideas over that.

    I don't really know anything about interior lighting, so if anyone has here advice over this please help, right now I'm using 3 MR Omni lights... the seemed to light the character best. I tried vray lights at first but that didnt go too well.

    Here's what iv got so far, I'm trying to give the room a bit of character... Lightings the big problem here,.. the animation is dark but I'm arguing with myself about whether to light up room or give a dark feeling... the main character isn't exactly a very happy person so dark room would fit her personality better... if I go for dark what I'll need some good colors for the lights, ive look at some refs but this is where I mainly want some help so plz

    I really prefer the darkly lit room. I like the way the light comes from the back of the character and bounces off the wall. Think about where the light fixtures would be in the room (or outside). Put yourself in the shoes of your character and think about what lights would she actually turn on. Of course, like in movies, you can (have to) cheat your lights to make your characters pop out.
    I think you're going to have to do a rough storyboard from your scene so you can place your cameras properly with the lighting... You could always use these to start some layout as the current drawn storyboard doesn't have any lighting or composition information.

    Good luck!

    Hi Martin,

    This project looks huge. I don't suppose you've thought about collaborating with others over at CGTalk?
    I saw your thread there, and I just thought it be good to have collaboration partners that specialise in animation and cloth, or which ever you feel needs attention.

    You're well rounded, but the learning curve, I think can be eased with some collab partners near by.

    All the best on this one, mate.
    Cheers from Aussie.

    Your character's face is definitely falling into the uncanny valley. It just looks really odd. You might try making it more cartoony to prevent that.
