Underwater Research Facility

Entry for EoW #187. Built a basic sketchup model for this one to find a camera angle which showed the depth down the corridor while keeping a decent composition. The xrays and the circular bits along the wall to the right of the door were based on photo texture, everything else was hand painted. Slow but fun!

For the design the general idea was to combine elements from a submarine with a stereotypical "secret" lab, a la Resident Evil. Lots of rounded forms and humidity hopefully get the underwater feel across without resorting to a massive glass window with fish swimming past like a Bond villian's boudoir...
