Influenced by the video, "How I Paint Dinosaurs by James Gurney" I made a rough mock-up in Modo to get an idea of how the lighting may look like for the Medusa. These are a first pass, all the objects are rough. I could have used more simple shapes but got caught up making them, heh heh.
I made these before the second class, so I will incorporate Craig's feedback in additional tests such as trying to get some shapes using light. :-) Cheers John H
