This matte painting is my personal project, which I did in my spare time. It’s a real concert hall located right in front of my house in Azerbaijan, Baku. Here’s one of the reference images that I used -
So the story behind this, (not exactly portrayed here but in general) is that every single day of our lives we face annoying traffic jams, pollution, overcrowded cities with narrow streets, unreal land costs etc. So at some point, society decides to lift all significant ground structures in the air to get free space for living, driving and.. parking. Some of them will be transported to a new position outside the town area, some will stay and will be just lifted up. All smaller residential-type of buildings, will be destroyed and residents will be politely forced to settle in a newly build for this purpose massive easily-transportable Air-blocks. Far outside the main town of course. But, as usual, suddenly something went wrong.. It’s a real problem so I kind of, played around this.
The concert hall and four lifting units were modelled mostly in Maya and rendered in Max \ Vray. All modeling was done by just “eyeballing” the proportions of different elements on the photo ref.
