Mad Scientists Lab – 3D Assets – Part 2

Continuing on with the laboratory assets I have found a great tutorial by Mike Hermes on youtube where he explains in depth how to model a spiral staircase in Maya. It is quite difficult to get the shape correct but after a few goes I finally got there. It may not be exactly how I had imagined it but I am hoping to improve upon it if times allows.

Spiral staircase



I modelled a simple container which I have now named ‘the growth hanger’ … cause thats how original I am. I found a great image on Pinterest and although I couldn’t find who the concept belonged to I thought it would do no harm modelling it. I thought it would be interesting to have a specimen jar with something growing in it for extra personality in the lab.. maybe it could hang beside the scientists desk where he watches it grow or morph into something non-earthly. The quick render can be found in the slideshow below along with other basic assets I have been modelling. The textures where added very quickly so I hope to add more textures using substance painter when I get a bit of free time.

I hope to add some liquid to the inside of the glass hanging container, once I have learned how. πŸ˜‰


Below I have included some quick renders of other objects I have been modelling for the scene.

Steampunk stove




Armillery Sphere



Orrery Solar System Model



Adios for now, might get some more simple models loaded into a third part. πŸ˜€
