This article is about the noodle bar called ‘WHITE DRAGON’.

Here is a production sketch of noodle bar.

The production sketch of noodle bar ‘WHITE DRAGON’

I have created CG of noodle bar not based on that sketch but real noodle bar in the movie.

Initially, I have planned to create the white dragon neon object, but finally I have created white dragon neon by mapping dragon image on a square object.
I have mapped three types of images for “color”, “glow” and “transparency” on a square object.

The scene created this time is an important part leading to the scene where Deckard appears for the first time in the movie ‘Blade Runner’.

RIdleyvill scene where Deckard appears for the first time in the movie

 

In the movie, the camera moves from the top of the noodle bar to the show window of the JVC shop, and Deckard appears in front of the show window of the JVC shop.
Newly created scene is going to lead to previous ridleyville scene.
