Recreating Bristol College Green with Maya 2017

Work in Progress

I am currently setting myself a project to get more familiar with Maya 2017. I had used Cinema 4D for my short film eko and really enjoyed the 3D modeling aspect. 
It's much more straight forward and less scary than I thought it would be. So here I am getting carried away with 3D modeling.

Set in Glastonbury Tor. A retrieval mission of an escaped military bio-weapon from a shady tech organisation who implanted her with organs from an alien lifeform. She drives off her pursuers using telekinetic powers before collapsing, alone and helpless in the carnage of her own outburst.
