This was one of my final projects for my first semester at college, we were suppose to make a diorama so we could explore modeling, texturing and lighting.

Arcade Diorama

This project started as two separated projects, first I modeled the robot and afterwards I created the arcade environment. My first attempt to combine both wasn't successful because I felt like they didn't match. The robot didn't look like he was part of the scene since he wasn't interacting with anything and I was also unsatisfied with the machines modeling.  

About 2 months later, I decided to work on this project again. I wanted to fit the robot in the scene so I came up the bar, inserting the robot as the arcade barista. Initially, with the lighting I wanted to create a dark and mysterious atmosphere, I tried keeping it colorful with neon lights to mimic an arcade, but I was too afraid to lose the mysterious aspect so I didn't add many lights. When I remade it I went in the opposite direction, adding a lot of lights with different colors creating a mix in the scene and alluding to the bright environment that an arcade is. After all I think that with this addition I was able to replicate an arcade atmosphere way better.  

This were some of my references to create this piece.
