Artist research

After my OGR and talk with Phil, I started taking a different look at my Martian King.

To start I wanted to do some research on a more military/large scaled lair.

For my inspiration and artist research I looked at a few different things. Looking at large areas, detail, items, machinery (?) and all the in between.

I started with Pakin Liptawat. A concept artist that does a variety of 3D, line art, textured and coloured pieces.

This next one. Jim Martin, has such a more detailed, photo realistic style

I also look at the game The Division for it's floor map hologram

Lastly I look at the making of Pacific Rim. This is for possible armor suits my Martians wear (Hero prop maybe?)

    Maybe you could think about using this form as structural motif throughout your 'war room'? It's pretty 'pointy' (weapon-like) plus it combines the circular shape common to many war rooms... For example - you could create this form in Maya as component - and then think about multiplying it, layering it up, using as interior architecture - and then drawing onto/into the models as another quick way of working up some interesting thumbs.
