Inspired by a photo by Chris Williams (Instagram _chriswilliams__), I created this using Maya, Maxwell Renderer, Photoshop and After Effects. I am a Video Editor/Animator, but a pretty okay 3D generalist.
I took my time creating the left wall (about 3 hours to make that part), hence the better quality, then rushed the rest because of my busy schedule.
Texturing and lighting aren't yet my greatest strengths, so I did what I could with limited time.
If time allowed, I would work on the flickering noise, properly add volumetric lighting in the windows and refine some texture maps. However, this was just a fun, personal project that I created in about 2 weeks total (less minus distractions). Thanks to the music by The Alchemist and Action Bronson that I listened to while creating this.
The Song: Maria Rita, "Mente Ao Meu Coração."
Photo: The photo in the window is of Chris Williams that I lifted from his social media page as this was intended for Chris initially. No copyright infringement intended. The revised version of this has a door in place of that photo, but this took about 5 days to render, so I am not re-rendering unless I must.
