This piece was my final project for my senior year in advanced seminar! I have been wanting to make a more cyberpunk-themed piece so pushing this apartment towards that genre has been a lot of fun. I loved exploring the lighting effects and blueprinting with neon-tubing as well as the challenges of night-time lighting. I spent roughly 150 hours on this project starting in mid-January. It was a bit of a rough start and a hard push to the finish but I am very happy with the progress I have made! This piece was modeled in Maya and textured in Substance Painter before being implemented into Unreal.
This piece was inspired by the original concept art created by the talented pixel-artist Waneella: https://waneella.tumblr.com/post/157839477262

I want to thank Joshua Terry for his guidance on this piece as well as my peers and alumni from my school for giving me very constructive critique to push me towards an excellent piece!
