Into the darkness

I promote this "light and shader experiment", for a digital artbook coming soon, inspired to the author Joe Dever (1956 - 2016), the creator of Lone Wolf.
I used Blender 3d with Cycles engine just for nostalgy but still work with new EEVEE engine.
Shaders with color ramp in order to obtain a comic style effect.
Added details and silhouette freestyle into the "difference" channel in order to capture ink color anyway.
Light is the key to produce very dramatic effects and perspective too, so i decided to catch the focus using real/fake perspective, real light and custom light direction for every element.
