Vignettes for the iPad game "Chinese Poker".
Models and animation in Modo, textures in Photoshop, setup and lighting in Unity.
The world functioned as the main menu.
A third casino site in Shanghai was abandoned, wich is why the asian side of the planet appears a little empty..
Las Vegas is probably the best known of the sites, and it was very easy to find good photoreference.
After compiling a shortlist of casinos I settled on those that stood out the most visually.
The casinos are clustered together in the middle of the desert, so I tried to get the buildings to appear as crammed together as possible.
The city of Monte Carlo is larger than the state of
Monaco, so I tried to make this site even
more crammed together than the Vegas site.
It was fun working to fit a F1 racetrack in there and getting the absurdly big yachts of the marina to appear absurdly big..
The game is very generous with achievements
I designed a series of "bling" items that could be won as the player progressed.
