Purple Square Bullet What you will & won't learn in this video:
This is a recording of how I did the lighting in my deviation Water Magic - I sped everything up by the same amount (650%) which makes the first steps look very quick. These steps are basically the same ones I've already shown you in my Advanced Lighting - Video Tutorial (which is basically part 1 to this one, logigally I mean) as well as in even more detail in The Lighting Tutorial Part 1 and Part 2. What I like about the same speed is that you get a little more feeling for how much time I spend on one thing vs. another. If you want to learn something about how I do lighting step-by-step, you might want to follow Easter Step by Step Part 1 & Easter Step by Step Part 2. Please note that the rain effect is not completely documented here, I will make a separate tutorial on that :aww:
