"Traditional animation stands can be (and often were/are) equipped with polarizing filters. Looking at the photo of the setup Strider posted, you would cover each light source with a polarizing filter (both oriented to polarize the light in the same…"

B. Hoffman replied to Rick Catizone's discussion monoclonius sculpt-in progress
