Some close-ups
Style references from concept art and the actual series
The strong light source seen in the image was guiding the whole lighting process towards a coherent goal, but the composition made it really tough to get all the important features to render as desired. The image ended up being divided in three depth layers with their own lighting setup and story to tell. Each has between 7 and 15 different lights, including or excluding specific elements.
