Pripyat Ferris Wheel

Loosely based upon the derelict fun fair in the town of Pripyat, which was abandoned as a result of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. The modeling was all pretty straight forward, so I concentrated most of my effort on painting detailed textures as I wanted to create a real sense of age and decay. The sky was created using Vue and then imported into Maya as an hdri, providing the scenes ambient lighting. A V-Ray Sun was also used for subtle directional lighting.
