Hey everyone, this is the high-poly model of the first (and most complex) asset of a small scale interior scene that I will be working on for about another week.

The process I followed for this was very similar to what I did for my assault rifle: start with a blocky side-view sketch, mock it up in 3D, refine the design with a Photoshop paintover, and then crank on the final detailed model. Although I started out on this intending to make more of a generic futuristic sci-fi column, as I worked on it I noticed it was leaning in the direction of art deco architecture so I decided to just go with the flow and embrace the art deco style.

I think what I'm most proud of on this one is the variety and balance in the complexity of the surfaces, where some of the shapes are very detailed and high-frequency while others are more simple and severe.

More to come, let me know what you think!

It resembles a bit the Shin-Ra Tower of FFVII but also it gives me the look of the claustrofoibc ambinets of Bioshock.. Really a good job man =)

Yeah I think that those were my two biggest influences here, good eye. :) Thanks NinjASD!

I finish to play Bioshock two weeks ago =P.
Those 2 games are too damn good, and your work resembles both of them. I like it SO MUCH

Really fine, archetypic, elegant design, for utopias as good as for dystropias, for spaceships as good as for ancient colonies, as a gun as good as for a temple. Or a factroy or a power plant.

Really good and very well done! :D

Hehe, it would fit in a lot of different settings wouldn't it? Good eye, reusing designs and shapes in unusual ways is one of the best shortcuts to making detailed artwork. :) Thanks Marsuwai!

The vents are, I assume, for the expulsion of Pillar Gas.
