Asset Design – Electric Train (Part 1)

I’m looking at creating the exterior of an electric train for use in the MTV.

To make sure the train coexist well with the environment, I chose some blueprints from The-Blueprints.com and narrowed down to the Seibu 4000 series as my reference as it is ‘clean’ in design and fits the mood of the MV.

Here are some development screenshots:

The model is likely to go up in resolution for the shots, if budget allows.

Environmental Design – Train Station (Part 1)

Here is my design of a possible train station for the MTV, work-in-progress. I looked through several countryside stations in Taiwan and Japan and found some inspiration.

I started modelling the environment in 3d for reference, then render matte passes, shadow pass and ambient occlusion pass for use in photoshop to paint the color on. This time, I tried the Japanese color palette!
