Papa Gene's Control Room is based on many video games like Boarderlands 2, Batman: Arkham City and Fallout: New Vegas. I used there concept art to create my own characters room. Papa Gene is a guy who both looks to the future and embraces the past so when creating his Control Room I wanted to have models of old and new. This is evident in his poster "Don't FEAR the future & Don't FORGET the past".
I wanted to give the viewer the idea of layers of time. The room was designed so that there are cables, wires and piping from different time periods. There are old copper water pipes with turning valves, there are retro style consoles and switches. Running inbetween is a network of new wiring and cables. I was trying to keep a stylised look about the project. I didnt want to have a hyper realistic look which lent more for the exaggerated lighting in the night scene. With this project I wanted to try improve a few skills mainly modelling, sub-division modelling, composition and lighting with Vray.
