Steampunk Hydroponics

Steampunk Hydroponics

I created this for the CG Boost Challenge: "Steampunk Gear". I really love the Steampunk genre, so this was fun to create. In the Victorian age that the genre is based in there would be a lot of pollution, so I wanted to show a little plant is trying to survive in a dirty steampunk world. It looks like it has been forgotten or abandoned by whoever put so much care to set it up.


Spent about 4-5 days in total working on it over two weeks in-between other projects. Plant took about 1.5 days to get to a point I was happy with, everything else was modelled in bits and pieces in roughly a day, and then spent around 1.5 days texturing and adjusting lighting. My favourite thing was learning how to make the metal pipes procedurally in Houdini, controlled by just a single spline.
