Photobash exploration. This was the first thing I did after resource gathering. Just starting to bash some ideas together to get a sense of the locale.
Photobash exploration #2
Architectural exploration. Here I'm trying to develop the visual vocabulary of the culture combining a bat skull with some motifs borrowed from mesoamerican cultures.
I wanted an exciting location for this, and the potential for exploring the "dormant" aspect of this volcano was enticing, too.
Another angle with a more like reverence mountain akin to Mt. Fuji.
More visual language sketches. Kind of a bat worshiping civilization.
Flora + fauna ideas and how they might have reclaimed the ruins.
How vegetation could be implemented into the environment.
This was a more like map sketch of the location before I setup the scene, let me plot out structures first.
Base 3D composition I chose to showcase the elements of the civilization.
Color comps exploring other atmospheres
Test work for an unreleased project, designing a location on a tight timeline based on parameters.
