1 Set­ting the lights

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Acrylic Washes -

I use two floor lamps, each fit­ted with three day­light-bal­anced 75W bulbs. The light should be even on both sides and rake the sur­face at a shal­low an­gle, likely about 20-30 de­grees. An an­gle that’s too shal­low ex­ag­ger­ates tex­tures and one too steep will pro­duce more glare.

Too steep – will in­crease glare

Ideal set-up

Too shal­low – tex­ture can ap­pear harsh
