Software used:
Photoshop, Maya, mental ray
After blocking out the image, I modeled the first half of the square, with all of the necessary elements and details, as well as the café interior. Many of these elements I used for the second half to finish the entire set.

It was hard to find the appropriate angle for the single final shot because the entire scene was made for the animated series and eventually most of the elements were going to be visible at some point in time. The director needed the freedom to move the camera anywhere he liked to, and to shoot from any angle he wanted. Finally I picked the most interesting angle that could tell a story, and from that point I developed the image further.

Fig.04 - 05 show clay renders of the left and right sides of the scene, along with some extra details. All of the models were made from polygons and many of them like roof tiles, windows or chimneys were instanced to fill a large expanse of space. The rotation of the roof tiles was randomized as well as the position, but far more discreetly. I even deleted a few of them randomly, as if they'd fallen off.
