Finally able to put this away for the time being. I can work on it forever, adding more and tweaking little things but I'm not going too. I'll revisit it later this year when I need to render a bit for my demo reel.
Here is the final render with a bit of post done to it.
Here are a few images as I went along. If you want to see WIP renders, check out my older blog posts.
I began by blocking out what I wanted and where I wanted it. The camera position was pretty much in place right from the get go. The scale of the room did change later on.
Modelling begins and things were moved around.
More modelling and details being pumped out.
Most of the bulk objects are modelled and detailed and the lights are then placed in.
It's a small classroom (12 kids max) but I think it works. Texturing starts. Custom name plates were textured for each spot.
Smaller details are modelled and textured as I go until it was finally finished.
