This is my final project for the intermediate term at Think Tank Training Center online.

For the intermediate term at Think Tank Training Center the final assignment was to create (part of) a room, based on concept art (or in this case a picture). 

I wanted to make an old-school-style weightlifting gym and found one in Hackney, London, through Instagram. I contacted the people who run the club and they were so kind to take some pictures for me (Thank you Daphney!) I chose 1 picture which had the best combination of lighting, mood and props. The other ones had either no window, too many (non-weightlifting related) props or just didn't appeal to me as much. 

At first the number of props was a bit overwhelming but I ended up grouping them, which ended up being a good starting point for texture atlasing later on. I finished all the modeling before I went on to texturing everything.

After a first pass of texturing I did a first pass of lighting which took me a full day. After that I spent the time alternating between lighting and texturing, going more and more into detail. Having a photo as a reference really helped me nail the lighting which in total took me about a week. This is my first scene in Unreal so it took some getting used to.

I learned a whole lot during this time and I really enjoyed working on this project. It was fun getting to see the scene come to life and I'm really happy with the result.
