Glass & Chess Scenery

Got inspired by one my brother's rendered image, I decided to render a scenery with the chess piece I created previously with a simple glass cup.


Compositional & Light Preview

I realized that the lighting is extremely important for this experiment, as the image above looks... you know. Very Fake. Therefore, I decided to adjust the lighting to make the environment darker.


Light Pre-Adjustment

Now, it looks bit better. However the environment seems too dark.

Final Rendering

After experimenting with few more lighting tests, I decided that this is good enough. One thing I realized from this tutorial is that scenery is really, really hard.
