Steve McArdle shows how to essentially “paint with light” with a look at his techniques for light painting With Lightwave 3D. Steve describes “Light Painting” as using lights as individual elements to establish shapes and form, rather than using them as an illumination model for the scene. Lights will be the only things that will describe the shape and form of the renders.
