Asylum Manicomio Di R
Asylum Manicomio Di R was an Italian mental asylum abandoned in 1978. When I found a photo collection of this place online I was drawn to it, this desolate and worn environment had inspired me to recreate and portray as much of it as possible.
This was one of the many operating rooms in the asylum. Due to many variations of these rooms, gathering consistent reference images was a tricky task. The biggest challenge with building the props was to find enough angles to visualise the overall look. The chair in particular was difficult as I had to make up the back and underside as I couldn’t find enough reference. Once I had built the main props I then built the rest of the room and got to work creating the textures using Substance Painter and Designer. Even though this scene is mostly finished there are some areas that I would like to improve upon. So I’ll make those area’s better and update this post when I can.
Below are some screenshots of my most recent work, I started by recreating a few key props in one of the medical rooms within the Asylum Manicomio Di R. Recently I have been putting a scene together, building the environment within the UE4 engine.
