3D Class Week 16: Creating An Environment Part 04 (Vegetation)

We finished up our environment build this week with added vegetation. I made an evergreen tree, some grass, and a foxglove flower.

All of my textures in Photoshop. (I didn't end up using the leaf for the final piece.

Grass and flowers.

I also added a mountain that I built in World Builder and brought it into Substance to texture.

2D Class Week 16: 3D Update

This week for 2D I expanded on my gravestone models, bringing them into Zbrush and Substance painter for a simple texture.

2D Class Week 14: 3D Update

This week I focused on updating the 3D models further to match the Tim Burton style.

I used a wrap deformer to adjust the mausoleum to give it a more Burton-like shape.

I also created an urn with a column to lead up to the Lion's mausoleum.

Updated models in UE4.

2D Class Week 13: 3D Model Update

This week I focused on fixing my 3D models for the Lion's environment. Our team also decided on adding more assets to the graveyeard as a place to introduce the Lion to the player.

I updated the fence so it would be thicker, and made another one that was broken.

I fixed the graves to have a more Burton-y shape, thickened the lamp post, and created
columns for the entrance to the graveyard and to add to the fence.

I also created a mausoleum for the Lion's parents. This is where the player will meet the lion.

3D Class Week 13: Creating An Environment Part 01

This week we created tile textures. We were assigned to create two, so I chose a cobblestone and a patterned tile.

First step was to create a plane in Maya that could be brought into Zbrush.
