Cloud Nine is a 3D modeled fictional city that floats in the clouds, where its inhabitants get around via hot air balloon and spend their days dreaming.
The buildings were inspired by European style architecture, with many windows, tall towers, and quaint roofs. To add quirkiness into the world, I made the color palette unconventional with various pastel colors and hues. In addition, I wanted to bring life to these buildings by adding names derived from types of clouds, like Cumulus Cafe or Hotel Stratus.
All the 3D modeling of the buildings and signs were made in Autodesk Maya. They were then brought into MAXON Cinema 4D where lighting, animation, and rendering took place.
