Welcome to a rare Thursday edition of Team Stryker. Sorry for the delay as I was having some server issues that prevented me from updating the site. Hopefully you think Eagleheart playing the slot machines in Las Vegas is worth the wait! Doing the lighting for a casino is very tricky because there are usually dozens of light sources everywhere you look. You have the ceiling lights, the lights from restaurants, slot machines, bars, stages all going off at once. I try to just pick one or two light sources that would be affecting the characters the most and focus on them. In a casino, two people can be standing 5 feet away from each other and be lit completely different due to their surroundings.

Have a great Thursday and don’t forget to check back on Friday for the pencils of page 04 and to hear about my week with the PS4!
