So, after a few months, I know, WAY too long for any project, for this size anyway... I can finally say I can move on... believe me, I could keep tweaking til the end of time, but I have to call it eventually.
Rendered 10 separate passes and with Photoshop I was able to composite them together.
- Diffuse no shadow
- Indirect lighting
- Mask (for reflective surfaces)
Stay tuned for more!...
