The one on the left looks better. It looks more classy. It looks as though it would belong in an art gallery or museum. The one on the right belongs to more of an industrial type setting.

lol, philosophy majors were so funny in college. to have a degree in thinking you would think they would think how the fuck they would get a job thinking. but to think about it  i spent 6.5 years in college still no job in what i did; think about that!

I remember when pussy was just awesome by itself. It was the best thing ever. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, BAM! They started landscaping it.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man religion and he'll sit there, praying for fish, until he and his family starve to death.

Make lamps everywhere in the map, some with diff color, and don't forget to turn some of them off, lights-variation is always teh best lightning.

use all of them in which case it requires that kind of lighting, depending on the tone and mood you want to set. for scary lighting, lights from the bottom is good for some cases. So use them all wisely and correct. dont stick to ONE lighting scheme.
