Felix Potin Shopfront
This is my interpretation of the Felix Potin Shopfront in Reims market square France in 1917. I could only find a handful of small photo references online so this started out as a difficult task from the get go. I planned out as much I could and drew up diagrams to guide me along the process, then got going.
The modeling process was fairly straight forward and the only real difficulty was knowing how to lay out the inside of the shop. Once I had the models ready I then brought the scene into Substance Painter. There were three unique texture sets to work on, (walls/ pavement/inner floor) (food/bottle set) as well as (signs/pipes/curtains/extras) the rest of it was tilable textures. I worked on these three sets back and forth giving each equal amounts of time.
Once ready then I imported the meshes as well as the textures into UE4 and set up a basic scene. The first screenshots shown below were rendered in UE4 and the second set were rendered in Marmoset Toolbag 3. I have included the reference images of the shopfront, these being the best images I could find.
Overall I am happy with the result and I really enjoyed putting this together. I feel that I created a grounded and realistic interpretation of the Felix Potin Shopfront in Reims market square.
