Sun King Arena
In Xavian’s hometown, Magic City, there is a 3-day warrior festival named the Magic City Jamboree. The festival is one of their Kingdom’s oldest events known for a glamorous parade and a raucous “Battle of the Warriors” featuring warriors from all over the Kingdom competing inside the famous Sun King Arena. Other events include a kickoff Cook-Out, Pre-Game entertainment, and shopping venues outside the stadium.
Recently renovated, the famous Sun King Arena features the most cutting-edge multi-size and multi-seating animal sections. It has dedicated areas to seat the larger animals like Elephants and Giraffes, even down to the smaller animals like Meerkats and Lemurs. No slouched to being eco-friendly, the architects designed an abundance of solar panels and windmills to make the Arena solar and wind-powered. Lastly, the Arena is built around the city’s famous and iconic Baobab trees. Spectators can look out from the seats to see the marvelous view of the legendary trees. Also, the Arena houses numerous vegetation inside and around the structure. While the player is fighting their opponents, they can even see an up-close view of the vegetation.
Below are pictures of showing the development process of the artwork from WIP sketches to the final version from our Conceptual Artist, Simon.
Visitors to the Sun King Arena will walk through the famous Magic City Arch toward the stadium area. Inscribed on the walls of the Arch is an old fable, To become one with the Sun; one’s core must burn with passion and, one’s heart must be carefree from negative. Only then shall you receive my blessing. The Arch has a height of 13 meters, taller than two fully grown Giraffes and, as wide as 50 meters. The walls will surround and enclose the stadium area.
After completing of the conceptual artwork, I hired our 3D Artist Viking to turn it into a 3D Asset. The screenshots you will see below shows the process from initial design to completion of the Sun King Arena in Blender and Unity 3D.
