The Lost Boys Cave re-imagined in Adobe Dimension (paint over)

For this Dimension project, I set about reimagining the Lost Boys cave in Adobe Dimension. Eager not to create a straight-up replica of the Lost Boys lair I instead tried to approach it with fresh eyes. I researched hotels within the San Francisco area (1875-1906) and although it suggested that the lair was based on the Valencia Street Hotel, architectural styles within the movie made me think it was more likely the Old Palace Hotel (which survived the Earthquake only to burn down hours later). I used props from Googles 3d Warehouse as a base and created the archways, pillars, and rubble. With these props I then created a rough environment to give me an idea of how I wanted to use the space, it also helped act as a road map for setting up my scene in Adobe Dimension. The base for the main character was created in Fuse and posed in Maximo, his chair is a Dimension model purchased from Adobe Stock and modified.
