I'm actually just watching all of the modeling techniqes from people like bryan, and guys like yourself, and trying to pic up pointers. Whenever i model something, it looks 1d because my lighting skills r a little weak.

hi justin

lighting is very simple.
had one point light to illuminate the whole bee and another to give highlights. the difference is coming due to the shaders i have applied to the different bodyparts of the bee. some parts have reflections and some dont
