The thing I love the most about Marmoset is how easy it is to get in and play with lights. I just started retopoing Sammy so these are just decimated zbrush sculpts but just using simple materials I can kind of get a sense of how I want his final colors to look. He needs one of those fake fishtank bubbling treasure chests to stand on. I also didnt realize that the gels dont need to be gray-scale which is how I usually applied them. I used a wave photo my dad took a while back and got this beautiful ocean refractive bounce light. After playing around with generic wood textures I realized I want his peg leg to have a bit of metal on it. I think blending wood into the metal will look really pretty, and it makes more sense that he would put his weight on a metal peg. Wood would eventually crack. I'm probably overthinkinbg this; he's a starfish with an eye patch after all :P
