Nuria Madrid, a freelance designer from Barcelona, Spain visited Kyoto a few years back and fell in love with the city. Her project Kyoto represents her fascination about the city and the Japanese culture.

My project Kyoto is part of a workshop about Cinema4D I made because I liked a lot the teacher's work (Tavo) so I thought it could be a fun. The topic is Kyoto because I visited the city years ago and I loved it. I wanted to make some colourful city with some generic elements of Japanese culture like makis, toriis, bullet train and things like that. Overall I wanted to achieve a wow effect. I spent most of the time with the composition because the objects and materials are pretty simple.

I wanted to do some in a isometric perspective and full of details and objects. I found a lot of reference images in that point of view so I started to sketch the elements and the main geometric structure. For the colors, I made a color scheme that I liked it and decided to use only 3 or 4 simple materials.

Don't think you are not good enough to show your work. It's great to receive feedback from the creative community, it really helps to improve and challenge yourself.
