More skyscrapers

I used the same method to create the other skyscrapers.

Showing some of the building elements in the scene


Smaller elements

Here you can see some other small Lego-type elements like roads and objects floating in the water.

On the X-shaped feature in this scene, you can see some small extruded polygons. I made these with a plug-in called Greeble. This is an awesome old-school plug-in and it's so much fun to use.

Trees and people

When I finished building up the towers and roads, I scattered some generic trees from one of the Evermotion collections, and a few low poly people around the buildings. As it turns out they are barely visible and are only seen if you zoom in.

The final modeled scene


Render setup

These are the render settings I used for this image ? it's pretty basic as you can see. After a 4-hour render, I had the base for the post-processing.
