Download it. Light it. Put it on your demo reel!

What’s the hardest part about getting your first job as a Lighting Artist?

Finding good 3D models to light! After all, how can you demonstrate your ability to light if you don’t have a model to light!?!?

And let me guess...you’ve tried downloading models from other sites only to find the UVs out of whack or the normals all screwy. Now you are stuck spending days cleaning up someone else’s model before even beginning the lighting process.

So frustrating!!
