I'm done with animation for the time being and now I'm moving onto lighting and rendering. Each one has their own chapter but they're both very interrelated. On the top left is the wagon I textured awhile ago and how it looks in my workspace. On the right is the same wagon rendered using built in sun light.
Rendering takes a bit of time so what's cool is I can highlight smaller parts and just render those to check changes I make. Here, I toned down the brightness and removed the reflection on the wood panels.
Here's the final render after I adjusted the sunlight to be more towards twilight.
