I feel like a need a personal project to work on as I progress through the course, so I decided to try to recreate my living room. I started out with basic block models and hopefully as I get better I can come back and add more and more detail.
I tried adding a light so I could see how it renders, but this happens
I checked all the normals are facing out and I have moved the light source up and down at the closest corner to no avail. I am using the “sun” light source as I felt it was a good choice to light up the whole scene.
