I’ve started adding a few details to the scene, in order to make the environment more lively. I had to model a few new meshes and make some textures. My friend did the sewers like decals. I still want to add some text on the banners and make some new curtains (Noren) for more variety.

Japanese Modular House: A small preview of what I’m doing right now. Modelling in Maya LT, texturing in Substance Painter. It looks really improved with respect to the previous version.
