Over the wall

I promote this "light and shader experiment", for a digital artbook coming soon, inspired to the author Joe Dever (1956 - 2016), the creator of Freeway Warrior.
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.
I introduce the halftone pattern for middle tones to catch more details.
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.
