Maya lighting tutorials

The other day I stumbled across these lighting tutorials which I thought I would share with you. They were published a few years ago and provide a brief introduction to the theories of lighting as well as how to practically implement them into Maya.

The tutorials are broken down into six separate sections that cover different types of lighting such as moonlight, candlelight and underwater light. I really recommend reading them even if your choice of weapon isn’t Maya or Mental Ray.

Below are some examples.
