For this theme I went back even before the first UT trying to revive one of the best environments from the very first Unreal. I think it was the juxtaposition of running around with high tech weaponry in something resembling an Aztec temple, mixture of fantasy and sci-fi that made it so fitting for the title.
Lets imagine how it could look like after some time has passed, ruined, overgrown and forgotten, yet still bearing marks of Skaarj atrocities. And for added weirdness, how would deck 16 look realised in this theme?
First, some base colour and photos to get it going. Some original UClassic textures have been also borrowed.
Here I decided how the lighting will work. Teal glow illuminating the map from the bottom and warm light of torches. Opening in the ceiling would let some extra light in, making the walkways pop out more.
So I think thats it for the initial photo bashing, I will post an update when some proper paintover gets done.
