Tribute to "Cowboy Bebop"

Why "Cowboy Bebop"?

I chose to make a tribute to this wonderful anime show created by Shinichiro Watanabe because it is such a beautiful and interesting story to watch. As a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, the show's setting and atmosphere appealed to me.

My main goal for this personal CG project was to recreate the original spaceship control panel unit from the show, while also adding my own design elements to enhance the visual look.

Initially, I was not satisfied with my first attempt at shading and lighting, which did not capture the atmosphere of the show (you can find the images in my "3D experiments" section). This time, my goal was to create a clean and slightly worn-out control panel unit with just the right amount of detail to show some damage.

Bonus: For those who have watched all the "Cowboy Bebop" episodes, you will recognize the smiley face on the computer screen and understand the significance of the dramatic red lighting.
