Here is a brief recreation of "Bag End" from Lord of the Rings that was done in 1 week as a mood match. I captured the mood and feel of the image from the film and recreated it through lighting techniques and modeling, and then I made 2 mood alterations. A flooded version of Bag End, and an example of Bag End after being hit by a sandstorm and rattled quite a bit. The three different scenes have quite a lot of contrast between them all. This was a project done in around 7-10 days to focus on lighting and mood building. I utilized houdini for the water and sand creation. Since the project was done in such a brief time-frame, I intend to go back and make adjustments.
Everything in the scene is made by myself except for the map illustrations.
