Piranesi prison - voxel tribute

Piranesi was an Italian artist from 17th century, mostly known for his drawings about imaginary prisons. Those dark places full of terror are fascinating, and I wanted to give it a try with a voxel tribute. The workflow was quite simple here, because Piranesi gave so many details in his work that I just had to follow the artist’s view and re-compose the whole scene with the same sense of depth and volumes.

Texturing the scene

The funniest part was to paint directly onto the voxels. For this step, I had to settle a color mood, and do a few tries. I finally decided to use some grey stones and some strong lights coming from inside the cells, to add some contrast to the scene.
