Forteresse Royale de Chinon - Medieval Kitchens

Full recreation of the Kitchens at Chinon- preparing for the fish course of a royal meal in 1450. At the time, people ate a huge variety of things, including porpoise and lamprey! Yum?
Created in-house for the HistoPad Amboise.

We worked with historians and medieval experts to create a historically accurate scene, incorporating the architectural elements of the fortress and its rich history.
Miscellaneous vegetables adapted from photoscans on Sketchfab. All other elements created by me.
Responsible for all aspects, including modeling, texturing, lighting, rendering, and compositing
