Morning is always so fresh with refreshing smell of mist, and glittering dewdrops on grass and – giant toy train! 🙂  Really nice to do this piece – it evokes nostalgia of looking forward to each morning in our childhood, with lots of magic and things to explore!

Here’s the breakdown of the lighting, shading, texturing and compositing (node graph here, and more details here).


Maya and Arnold for lighting, rendering, shading, texturing; Photoshop and Mudbox for painting textures; Nuke for integration and comp.
