First assignment for 3D Virtual Environments II
Prompt: Create an interior human living space that is inspired by bioluminescence for lighting.
I began visual development by looking at vintage train dining cars, Art Nouveau interior spaces, and bioluminescent marine life. After concept art, I settled on an octopus theme and began modelling my assets in Autodesk Maya. My first submission didn’t seem right, so I asked my History of Crafts teacher for critique, as it was his course that had inspired my aesthetic choices. At his suggestion, I rearranged the props, changed the colour palette, and added chandeliers; this is the final result.
