Much to my disappointment, I have never managed to get on the leaderboard to input my 3 letters. However, I love the look and feel of the old machines, so decided to create my own rendering of a machine from scratch as a fun personal project.
I’ve been pretty lucky in my life and my career so decided to take inspiration from that and create a table called “Lady Luck” with a gambling theme. I also love to visit casinos when I’m out of town for a night out, so it seemed rather fitting to continue that theme on the table itself
I spent a lot of time going to and from Photoshop to Cinema 4D as I build the core components and the art to go on the table itself, along with all the materials to add the detail needed. I had some great fun with caustics, reflections and the glows on the table alongside introducing some exaggerated depth of field so the focus was on the centerpiece of the table.
Next time around I think i’ll remodel things a bit differently and create the whole table and animate it, which would take a while but I feel would be a great challenge!
