Lighting Ur at Night

June 5, 2007

Grigor and the team have been working hard at adjusting textures to work with the lighting. The night shots are challenging because of the subtlety involved in night lighting. Certain textures do not react well under all lighting conditions, so there is some back and forth testing involved.

Here are some lighting sketches by Grigor.

Pichech is one of my favorite characters. She and Haran have one of the funniest scenes in the show when she comes to the idol shop to buy an idol from smooth talking Haran. Pichech is a wealthy, and vain, citizen of Ur, but becomes one of Avram’s few conversions from idolatry when he is 13. Pascal Colpron created an amazing design, and Sarah Zamic, has done a marvelous job of giving her a voice.
