Area Lights

A small sample of area light settings.

I added an area light with the default settings.

The scene layout was inspired by a concept art piece by Matt Rhodes. Reference link here: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/Yqob

The light placed in a different position:

I changed the decay rate to quadratic.

Ooops, it’s too dark to see now.

I increased the intensity to 10. It’s slightly brighter if I increase the gamma.

Here is a comparison between the first (1 intensity, no quadratic decay) and last image (150000 intensity, quadratic decay):
