Playing off the hot orange smoggy glow and the cool blues of the forerunner hall was a lot of fun!

The materials team did a great job making the superheated metal material

Another area I was happy to do lighting work on for Halo Infinite was in the "Laser Tunnel" at the Excavation Site leading into the next Forerunner Dungeon.

There are actually two different lighting scenarios here. The cave has a more natural blue lighting before the laser activates, and after the laser activates the tunnels fill with smoggy warmth.
I also did the cubemap reflection work in this area as well as optimization work in the exteriors of Excavation Site.

Additional art in the area done by other artists including the awesome Environment Content Team, additional lighting support, surfaces, and more!
