👋 Hellow and Welcome! It is my pleasure to present my latest asset: an impressive Arcade Salon featuring some of the most iconic arcade machines from the 80s, which I personally enjoyed playing during my childhood. The retro and stylized design of the scene makes it perfect for anyone seeking an authentic and nostalgic experience.
For the idea, I worked with Midjourney (an AI that turns text into images) and tried different prompts until I found the one that best matched what I was thinking. I wanted it to be an interior so that I could practice with practical lights.
The modeling is optimized so that the files are not too heavy and it is lightweight to work with. The textures are of good quality and also not too heavy. The shaders are balanced to work well with physically correct lights.
What you can do with it.
Mainly, you can expand your skills by working with practical lights. There are several practical light points throughout the scene, so you can place them wherever you like and give the scene your personal style.
If you are starting out in the world of lighting or even if you are a professional and want to know the processes I followed with the lighting of the scene, I recommend that you take a look at the Light Edition version. There you can find some quick and direct videos on how to create the light rig for the screens, neon lights, and other lights in the scene. Moreover, if you want customize your own machine, you can download the Substance Edition version. I have created a video with the worflow to place your favorite arcade machine images in the substance painter layers.
