Hello everyone! Visited the Strängnäs tank museum (in Sweden) this summer and took a bunch of reference photos there.
Unfortunately these were taken by 3 different cameras and one of them was a shitty phone cam so sorry about
the res and blur on a few of them :( Hope you still like them though!

rar p1: (182mb)
rar p2: (182mb)
rar p3: (181.5mb)

ps. If your in Sweden I highly recommend visiting it. Great value for money if your into things like this ;)

Hai !


So last Saturday, I went walking downtown Montreal and stopped by a massive Church on Saint-Catherine Street. I've already been there once for an early music concert that was pretty rad but I decided to stick around to maybe take some shots of the Chapel. Went up to the main door, but found it closed so a guy came running up to me and asked me if I wanted to see inside the Church. I said yes and he brought me in a little back alley on the side of the Church where he opened a door that led behind the Chapel (the rest of the Church's building). To my excitement the place was incredibly old, the floor was cracking, the paint was coming of the wall and tons of work lights everywhere were installed. The guy made me meet with the priest and I explained to him that I was a game developer and that I was looking to take pictures for further reference. He was delighted and made me enter the Chapel (but the real fun was everything else to be honest). So I told him that I didn't want to touch anything sacred or mess around their stuff and he told me that everything was good. I asked where I could go and he granted me permission to look everywhere. I was freaking excited. So here's a few shots of the Church. Some pretty inspiring stuff in there. I even went to the roof and inside the basement (that was incredibly creepy).


So I thought I'd share that for environment reference. I also took quite a few little videos that I'll be uploading to Youtube later.


Everything is taken on an Iphone which... gives crap pictures. I do have a nice camera, but didn't think I would take reference pictures that day.












I couldn't help but grin at this. Could make a nice little "environment encounter" for a horror game Bioshock style.








Took this one because I thought it was a pretty awesome reference for using global illumination in games.




So this is a corridor that you'd access by walking up stairs that were completely in the dark with only the bright red exit sign at the top of the stairs to light it. In this corridor there was a clinic called "Just Solutions".




The whole building had crackled paint inside. The floor was noisy when walking on it. Everything was so freaking old.




From this pic everything else was taken in the basement of the Church. I had to stop exploring at some point because the whole thing felt like a maze. Sooo many little passages, corners, didn't want to get lost.














I just loved how everything was slightly off on this board.


In the little videos I have a segment where I walk up into the roof of the Church. Now that was something.
