ok so work has begun and its looking not too shabby.
ive modelled a fair amount of random crap to occupy the free space in the study and lab but now the focus has turned to the enviornment itself. Mark and i have been working for the past couple of days on different textures and render passes in order to get the right look and i think we're prety close.
I'll be posting up some images of the random object to see if the style is prominant enough and also some developed render passes of the time machine and of a gramaphone.
please let me know what you think.
