The Challenge

Horizon Labs has a number of varied representations in Marvel comics over the years. The key starting point in creating the images of the complex and the shots of the laboratory complex’s interior and exterior was to study all the available reference material. This clarified consistent and important elements to focus on to then bring whole vision of the complex together.

 

The Solution

Through the set of computer-generated images, the Marvel story of Horizon Labs is now reborn with all the drama it truly deserves. All the key aspects in the original comics are now considered and brought together rationally into the various scenes. The complex and inset views were modelled in 3D using software Cinema 4D. The final rendered files were retouched in Photoshop to add further depth and atmosphere.
