Between job applications, an online course I'm taking, and of course bird watching (now narrowing in on my local Kookaburras exact behaviour... updates soon) I managed to sneak in a bit more work on my lighting (scene creation?) challenge piece.
I was able to litter the forest floor with more "stuff". I like it, but I'm going to need more. Have to fidget with some smaller stuff (dead leaves and branches) to capture the true feeling of a forest.
I also added a thin fog to the forest to help decamouflage my Gorgosaurus (man I can't get over how good that cameo is... unfortunately it is too good in this case :P). Hat tip to Matt and David for pointing me in the mist/fog direction. It'll need some adjustment and tweaking, but I think for a first pass this looks not too bad!
I dare say beyond the forest litter needed, I might have something ready for a proper lighting experiment now. What do you all think?
