3D Steampunk Magic Thingy / Device

  • Category 3D, Concept art, Experimental

I don’t work with 3D daily, just Ui, so I made this back in April 2016, very very quick, just to practice integration between Illustrator vectors to Modo and how much it would speed up creation of ornamented parts, against modeling all directly on Modo. It was a good choice, I made a slightly complex ornament in about 20 mins on illustrator, and it was in Modo in just extra 5 mins. Really fast pipeline.

Inspired by sci-fi companion robots, steampunk, Victorian art, sci-fi modular gadgets and nasty evil fantasy magic!

It’s not a complex model, it’s very rushed and relies on ornaments and material more than modeling, 6 hours of work plus 20 hours of render, but I kinda like the result. The hardest part was choosing colors, my colorblindness seem to be getting worse towards green as I age, so color picker for the Win!!!! lol! Hope you guys like it!

It’s all 3D, the environment model is generated in World Machine, Zbrush for the plants and rocks in modo.
