Winter Waiting

A child stands patiently in front of the television waiting to find out if today is a SNOW DAY. (Note: I did not create the models used in my scene. They were acquired by purchase from Unreal Marketplace and CG Trader. I did modify, blend, & create many materials and textures. )

From Dusk til Dusker

I set out to use this as an opportunity to learn some new skills in lighting. I thought it might be interesting to tell a story in a single frame, motivated by the theme of Winter Stories, I based this loosely on my childhood experience but hoped that it might resonate with anyone that grew up where a nice snow fall might offer them a day of solace from school. 

This is my first scene rendered outside of a tutorial or course. Thanks for the challenge and opportunity!

I started with a crudely drawn sketch and then created a photo collage mockup.
