Galaxy Plaza is the center plaza created for a hyper-realistic city, for a concept cartoon that was set for a pilot, but, unfortunately, never got the green light. I created concepts, modelled, textured AND lit the city with detailed work concentrated on the plaza, since it would be central to the scenes. Rendering powers were definately tested with the magnitude of the files. It was also the reason I spent close to 500 man-hours on the city. I could barely utilize the cameras in the scene and had to stick to specified views just so I could shave off time.
Two words: Laborious. Intense.
