This project represents a slice of a futuristic version of Tokyo that focuses on a car as its central piece. The car is at the front of the scene and is lit by its surroundings billboards, streetlights and neon signs. The project's aim was to incorpse as many of my skills as I could so that I could improve in all areas

The centrepiece of the project was the car, which was then displayed in a diorama of a futuristic version of Tokyo. The car is based on the Porsche 944 and altered to fit the cyberpunk theme, this was important as I believed a standard modern vehicle would have looked out of place. Individual car images are rendered in Marmoset and all others were rendered using Unreal Engine 5 with Lumens lighting.

These are the Unwraps for the car which was split into 4 textures. Interior - Exterior - Wheels - Glass.

This is the environmental aspect of the project that is lit and rendered inside Unreal Engine to create an immersive atmosphere that feels like a Cyberpunk version of Tokyo, Japan. The crucial aspects of the diorama were the lighting and water on the ground as it created a huge difference to the bounce lighting.

Some Quixel Megascans assets were used to fill some areas of the scene such as inside the shop. Also a Meta human and Mixamo model/animation in the scene. Metahuman  - female model in shop and Mixamo - the dancing female hologram.
