Software used: Cinema 4D, Redshift
This work helped gain an internship with Wardog Collective.
Using Cinema 4D and existing Kitbash 3D assets, this piece set out to engage my current following into similar futurescape work. Inspired by Blade Runner and it’s sequel, Blade Runner 2049, this piece used Redshift’s inbuilt environmental volumetric lighting to create the eerie, moody look of the near future.
The neon signs were created in Adobe Illustrator, using a series of basic parametric shapes to create simple scenes that add extra detailing whilst not obstructing the focus of the scene.
I undertook a strategic approach with the signage – What kind of things would be in the near future? Things like “CATGIRL HOSPITAL” aimed to be humorous – an easter egg of sorts – but still held some truth to it. Human experimentation and augumentation is becoming more of a reality every day. Hopefully we won’t see James Cordon as a cat any time soon, though!
The scene was then rendered on a single Nvidia 1050ti, and comped in After Effects, with some added lens flares, rising smoke, and colour correction.
