[WIP] Luxury Tower UE4

Helllo! Welcome to my first Thread on Polycout Where i'll be posting updates of my process on a personal project. Suggestions and feedback is super appreciated!

 Unlike past projects, where I choose a piece of concept art and execute it to the best of my ability. I'm approaching this Scene in a much more 'free-form' way. casting a large net of influences from mirror's edge to Arch viz and loads of other spaces that some how evoke a mood i'm trying to describe.

I set out with a set of Describing words: Futuristic, Elegant, Sophisticated, And Cinematic to help me focus on what i'm trying to make. I knew I wanted a High quality render with a couple options for camera placement.   

Block out:

I decided to focus on a spiral stair case as the focal point, and that I wanted to play with a variety of materials, I'm using the wood from the UE4 blueprint demo as a placeholder.

I Spend quite a bit of time blocking out and iterating and just trying things out to see what work and what doesn't. I decide early on that I want to make it a Night scene in a Skyscraper Tower. 

here I'm Starting to settle on a camera angle I like But i'm still trying to find a story and design principles that fit the space well.

I iterated on the staircase and experimented on having these gold decorative arches. and what the space might be like if it was larger.

Playing with a Tillable material I made in Designer to see how this pattern works in the scene.

At this point I havn't had a whole lot of extra free time to devote to the project, and I'm having a hard time developing a story and a cohesive look for the scene. I hope Sharing some of my project with you all will help me work through some of this art block. All feedback welcome!

    Nice start, keep going! The central pillar thing will be hard to capture in reflections properly, especially with all the reflective materials around. You might consider cheating on performance a bit with it though and shoving a few too many reflection captures around it.
