Here we are in the final hours of the competition!
I had some amazing feedback from the judges, but given the time left in the competition, I made the decision to stick with the 3D geo I had, and to avoid relighting the plate, given how much more I wanted to do with it. The final result might not be the most classic example of Cyber Punk out there, but it stays true to the original inspiration!
Adding light and finalizing!
For this week I chose one of my thumbnails, inspired by a screenshot from from Cyberpunk 2077 s Night City. After creating a rough plate, I used the kitbash set that I retextured to layout the buildings, and then brought them into photoshop.
For this first week I gathered ref and inspiration, played around with some grayscale thumbnail collages, building basic compositions, and started re-texturing some assets I would like to use (i did not model them).
