At this point we have just some basic environmental lighting in our scene.…Let's go ahead and take a look at what we have.…We basically just have a sky with clouds and that's casting kind of a blue tint…over the whole scene.…What we really need to start off with is the primary light source in this scene.…Now this environmental light source is kind of more of an ambient light, but we…really need a direct light source.…In this case it's going to be the sun streaming through this window.…
