Woken up to the sound of gunshots outside your tent, you take a peek outside; it is night time and you can't see much. As you reach for the flashlight in your pocket, you hear another shot in what appears to be the tent right next to you, followed by a violent slam on the floor. In an instant, your whole life flashes before your eyes and you immediately regret the path you have chosen. It is time for your punishment.
The goal of The Admiral's Quarters is to explore how an "old school" design language can be integrated into a sci-fi setting. Inspired by prior work on past historically-influenced projects, the piece uses Spanish decorative elements and was created using a combination of Blender and Photoshop.

This metamorphosis process leaves the human deformed, so it's his own choice to continue life with a monstrous visage or ask for complete disintegration.
