I want to really show off Limbo with bright lights, glows, and neon signs to really enhance the Vegas feel. After looking at the Neon Boneyard in Vegas and popular Vegas bars and clubs I decided to make my environment out of the stylized and iconic lettering.
In illustrator I traced the lettering of these signs that have all kinds of fonts and styles. I was also informed that you can import these vectors from Illustrator straight into Maya to make a beveled model. Using this technique i built my environment out of the lettering, dice, chips and cards. I then used my model as a guide to create a quick painted sketch and different thumbnails for my colour palette.
