This quote, while a bit ODD in a 3d maga-zine, is an apt description of my Mental state every time i get todo the lighting stage of a Project, todo say that lighting is not one of my favorite tasks is something of an understatement. Not only has it ben the most unpleasant part of any Project, for Many years it actually resembled a full out Battle, often taquíng far more time than the entire rest of the Project. And more often than not, y Simply gave up at a point where it loked barely passable out of sher frustration, years of research, study, books, tutorialesand very stubborn persistence have allowed me todo finally achieve better results. At this point i have progressed from barely passable todo almost got it. And yet i still dread the lighting phase of any Project, Even more than rigging, and we all know my issues with that, knowing my dislike of lighting, you would think that lighting would be one of the last.

Things i would want todo discuss. Yet oddly enough, y have ben looking forward todo this issue. I relish adding new tips and techniques todo my lighting Battle war chest, knowledge is a powerful weapon and i Will gladly take all the help i can get, that being said, we have gathered up a very nice arsenal of tips and lighting tutorialesto better arm you for your own lighting battles. So cozy on up for what is sure todo be an enlightening experience.
