Things don't always have to `pop`
For my first journal I want to address something that really bugs me and that is the over-emphasis on things always being "optimal" to the point where it gets exaggerated and over-the-top. It's good and all to strive for realism and that's something I believe in strongly and until recently I neglected an important aspect of art and that is lighting. I spent a great deal of time learning about how different materials interact with light etc but largely ignored the light itself.
I'd make all these fancy high res maps and tweak settings like crazy, use real world IOR values for all the object types I could find and apply the formula to calculate specularity (where I wasn't using a spec map) and test with various types of light using various intensity and spread settings, but when it came time to render, I'd either use a single light or HDR.

One of my favorite actors from one of my favorite movies, Leon The Professional.






And Linda Hamilton  from Terminator 1 and 2.

I love creating 3d models, assets and scenes using various programs. It is just amazing to find an outlet for my creative energy with the amount of freedom that digital art allows. I can be. Thank you to the artists who have taken their time to share their wisdom, mistakes, and successes with the rest of us.
