Unearthly Challenge: Lighting and lots more.
Added an orange variant of In Youngs petal plant and PFX. Changed sunlight direction drastically. Was losing a lot of normals and edges in the glaciers.
Added a first pass sky and a soft lens flare. No sun yet though. :) Added a rough in of the Freezer Ships creeping over the top of the ridge.
Robby is working on actually making those pretty. I just roughed it in. Continued with point lights and narrowed down our composition and shot layout to this one and another 1. 6 more days left.
Currently over budget on polys and under budget on textures. About mid this week I'll be taking the back mountains and turning them into a poly plane / card. Should cut out about 100k polys and we'll be in perfect budget territory.
More color and scene composition aid coming tomorrow for the foreground. 7:00 am til Midnight. Time for sleep.
