That's better

Just a re-lighting of the beauty shot scene from yesterday

There's really not too much to say about this one. It's almost the same scene as yesterday's beauty shot, but something was really bugging me about the lighting. The color of the key (key/kicker actually) was wrong and something about it seemed to flatten the scene unacceptably.

I ditched the key/kicker with peach gel for a higher altitude key with a snoot and blue gel and added eye lights with snoots for both characters. If this setup doesn't work when I actually start animating, I'll have to change the color of the wall, which I prefer not to.

Continuing to stare at it, I think I can live with this lighting, it makes the scene a little moodier and the room seem a little dingier, but that's a feature not a bug.
