I am very interested in texturing and lighting.To achieve this misterious darkish gallery space with old sort of William Morris-Victorian lily patterned wall papers and decor, I enlighten it with darkish red lights and did light linking.
The viewers are lightened and lighltlinked separately. Characters are enlightened form the front with sharp bright light, which helps distinct their features better.
...and in shadow when showd from the back.
Room consists of 2D flat elements, everyone is textured separately and then layered in the 3D space.
