I begin to feel more comfortable with the models I created for my metal city so that I am now trying to play around with them more freely and render more complex scenes.
I made these illustrations to show different aspects of the interactions between humans and the automatized ship. Hibernated humans are suspended in fluid-filled containers while maintenance robots take care of them. Each individual is linked to other sleepers in order to form units connected to the main computer system.
The sleepers are clones of the same individuals
My new model is a huge multi-level compound seen here from different views from top to bottom. I then added different characters to experiment with different possible uses of the model.
My first idea was that this visually complex, industrial setting could be an appropriate background for a film noir climax. Then I moved to more action oriented ones.
