Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Examining the lighting, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
Let's look at a couple of fun lighting things going on in this project.…First, let's look at this shot with the robot.…We have this side of him that we are looking at--or side of it, I should say--and…then, it kind of, the camera kind of pans around his face a little bit, and then…we see the other side.…Now, I really wanted this shot of the villain to be very intimidating.…I wanted a very limited color palette. I wanted it to feel very mechanical and dangerous.…I wanted the edges to be hard. And, it to be, kind of, very intimidating, and…ruthless, and mechanical, almost like it's just without mercy.…

So, that kind of gives it this little bit of cyan tint. So,…on the surface, it kind of looks, like, just black, and white, and red. But it's…actually a little bit more diabolical than that, because I pulled a little bit of…
