Steampunk city

General / 25 January 2018

i want to share this project with you. it's something i want to do for a very long time... and now might be the right time to do it. 

the idea is to make a steampunk city with very obviously divided areas. rich people living in nice sunny higher parts and poor workers in the dark industrial lower parts of the city 

here is an old sketch: 

and here is pretty quick 3d test... just one unfinished building instanced around... I'm hoping i could make just a few variations, some pipes, gears etc. and it would still feel pretty complex :)

with a little bit of smoke and few minor details like street lamps...

and a simple volume light pass looks quite cool :)
