    Red face WIP: Need light-source help

    Admittedly this is very very rough. However, I just want to know if I got the light source put correctly on the wolf's body.

    Thanks for your time!

    I think maybe you could render the light on the wolf so that it shows a little more of the top of his head and back. The way the light is rendered on him now it's as if the light source were directly behind the wolf, however you've shown it to be a little higher up.

    -My work can be found at my local directory thread.

    I think you would place a soft blue glow along the wolf's silhouette. Puffy stuff like the tail would have the light shown through a more. The back would probably have strong hightlight compared to everything else.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Thank you for the reply. I've incorporated something along the lines of what you have suggested. Hope I didn't misinterpret

    HI MY LURV XD

    Nice lighting !

    Tho Im having an issue with the head

    Seeing as the perspective the body is in...the head seems too long, not in perspective, maybe move the nuzzle and eye back more, well the whole front face. the ears are in right perspective, jus not the head it seems. If the wolf does have a long head, then feel free to smack me up XD

    continue to make me proud 3333333333
