Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

try this and maybe you get closer to the look you want: use lower hemisphere color (inside skylight settings) and sample it from the ground albedo which in this case is snow. it gives bounce light effect to your scene.

Maybe its time to get into lighting. this guy has very good tutorials to get you starting (https://www.youtube.com/user/51Daedalus/videos) . there might be more than one solution to your problem. so would be good to understand the basics of lighting. you can also check this scene by koola which is free to download and maybe you can reverse engineer from that.


here is the video of the scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-FpKzD9_uM
