Default Game environment portfolio work for new book

Im currently in talks to nail down a new book deal and this one is going to be about environment art for games. Its going to have a full-color gallery in it and I have to get artwork from folks interested in contributing. If any of you have any environment art (which includes props, buildings, levels, etc etc) from your portfolio that is also safe to show publicly AND youd like to see your work in print, please let me know!

Hey Mike,
Thanks for this opportunity.
I got this scene I did about a year back. I made the house in Maya and the background in Vue with some Photoshop touches.
Don't know if it's good enough.

thanks.

Hey Mike, are film/broadcast environments out of the question?

Thanks for the interest everyone!

Rockymills_01, that looks cool! I'll keep it in the submissions group until the final choices are made.

Rage, no, they aren't out of the question.

Well, I did this simple spot for my comp/broadcast reel a while back, and i have all the Maya 2009 scene files ready to go if it's worthy

It was a simple 3d projection/set extension for a station ident interior.

Attached is a still (unretouched) of the whole scene,as well as a QT breakdown of the spot as it appears in my reel.

If it's not what you were looking for, then no problem, it's the only one I made from scratch that I can give away freely

hey mike - here's my security room project - not sure if it's what you're after - and the lighting could still do with a bit of work. let me know - if not, no worries.

thanks
