'No Country' lighting match practice

This one was fun, and came together pretty quickly. This time, I didnt get bogged down in modeling- everything is either imported, or super simply constructed. I also made sure to copy a live action film, to make sure it was possible to light the character and set at the same time.  I included a screenshot of the scene setup, cause I never see people do that

maya lighting study

I thought it would be a good idea to start doing lighting studies, using 'beautiful livingroom' pictures I'm pulling off google. Maybe soon ill get really crazy and start lighting from movie stills:D

lighting practice stuff

I've been trying to get a handle on linear lighting, and physically plausible materials. It's taken a surprising amount of work to get this far! That said, Im really psyched to turn out some actually nice-looking pics soon (with actual texture maps), using these techniques.
