Here you can find a very nice and well executed lighting exercise with Gumosa. Shu shows here a quick breakdown of his process as well as the final result.
Get to know Shu and take a look at her portfolio. She’s busy getting better!
Doing lighting always makes me feel a sense of like coming home – a kind of happiness! Night lighting – is especially alluring to me, very atmospheric. It’s a nice challenge to do this stylized piece, and I really like the Gumosa character (from boutique23), and posing him relaxed and deep in thoughts, smiling to himself. Pretty forlorn! 😉
Maya and Arnold for lighting, shading and rendering; Nuke for compositing; Premier for editing. See:shulow.wordpress.com/2015/07/26/lighting-for-animation-interior/
My name is Shu Low. I’m a graduate of Vancouver Film School in 3D Animation and VFX. I enjoy lighting, shading, texturing, compositing, doodling and oil painting, and I love animation especially for children. I love to paint with light, imbuing beauty, magic and life to imaginary worlds and storytelling. My passion is in movies and I look forward to be a good Lighting Artist working on movies with engaging stories and great visuals.
