So this was going to be my final submission for the Beyond Human challenge, but I made a huge error. I assumed the deadline was the same time of day as the last challenge, and unfortunately it wasn't. I definitely learned my lesson as I was about to upload my final submission only to find out the contest closed at 5:00 rather than 17:00. I'm bummed, but I shouldn't have assumed.
Anyways, this was a fun challenge and I learned quite a few things as well. I wish I would have had more time to spend on lighting as I was really torn between drastic lighting and making sure the character was well lit overall. Looking back I would have gone with a more drastic lighting look for the beauty shot and overall lighting for the various angles. I think I'm still progressing, which I'm happy about, but there is always room for improvement. Looking forward to the next challenge.
I also want to thank Daria Rashev for here character concept art. You can find her here https://www.artstation.com/nim.
