Making of… “It dies at DAWN!!”

Post-mortem: if it was dawn then the shafts of sun would have been much lower in the sky and so the light from the windows should have washed across the table, but that would have been too complicated lighting-wise. I still could have added more dappled patches of light on the table. I forgot to put a long glint of light on the table-edge nearest the window. I should also have added a slight shadow on the underside of the table, under the lip. I could have used the scissors (in the original model pack) and have had them standing stabbed violently into the table, raising up splinters of bright wood. The rat could have been replaced with a more appealing character, perhaps the cute Greenie monster from the 3DXchange Pro pack — although I’m not sure he scales down that far.
