Big congrats to bara for being victorious for the last two EOW's in a row!
- Post your finals in this thread!
DEADLINE: May 1st 2012
Bit of info if anyone's bothered.. I built a basic sketchup model for this one to find a camera angle which showed the depth down the corridor while keeping a decent composition. The xrays and the circular bits along the wall to the right of the door were based on photo texture, everything else was hand painted. Slow but fun!
For the design the general idea was to combine elements from a submarine with a stereotypical "secret" lab, a la Resident Evil. Lots of rounded forms and humidity hopefully get the underwater feel across without resorting to a massive glass window with fish swimming past like a Bond villian's boudoir.
Ocean floor research lab:
The idea is that following a natural disaster, water levels rose above this city, which was then converted to an underwater facility.
What you see here is an underwater lab belonging to an aquatic species discovering a new energy source.
Ruins of a vast city were found underwater. A research facility was built to study the ruins of the mysterious city.

Top secret facility strictly focused on weapons research. Somewhere in Chinese Sea.
I created low resolution 3d model in 3d max and painted over. Total time - around 6h.
