Hey guys, this is my take on the lighting for the Reflections demo by UE4.

As a game student trying to become a lighting artist for games, I really focused only on how to tell a story through the mood of an environment and its lighting. My biggest inspiration for lighting (especially in this relight) was Koola and his HK project. Basically, it's a game about a cat discovering places. It was a lot of fun and a good learning experience trying to figure out how to tell a story through a curious cat and its surrounding, I had many and constant feedback from my teacher to keep pushing the quality of this project.

The lighting is baked with a very few dynamic lights.
