Hi guys n gals

here is a test render for a element 3d render.

I was aiming for a military entrance to a secret facility. I am looking forward for critism and ideas to make the best of it. :)

Was not expecting the sound design to be as loud as it was, lol.

Looking good.

Ways to improve:

• Could be a little brighter

• Bolt heads on elevator make it seem much smaller in scale

• It would be nice to see a person or two composited into the shot to get a sense of scale (I'm guessing this thing is supposed to be massive)

If you'd like some inspiration for visual development, you could watch this animation:

Sorry for your ears. I always forget how loud these motion pulse effects are.

You are right about the bolts. Mainly because i used capsule models and was aiming for some kind of marking on the platform.
But now i only see bolts too. :)

In the planned shot there will be something on it. Either a plane or some kind of big cargo container.

After compression it's even darker than i wanted it to be. But try to work on that.

Thanks for the feedback :)
