Having a blast working in Unreal. Re-acquainting myself with the editor after using Unity for so long.

Showing off some stylized Substance materials I made so far! And a look of it in game!







Working on something new!

Work In Progress / 21 July 2020

What have I been up to? Well, I've been working on a personal project that has a story, spooks, and is a small horror game! I'm doing it in a style that I really like (lofi pixel graphics). Special shout out to "The Haunted PS1" game dev community that I am a part of! And I'm having alot of fun doing the game design. But since I am an environment artist, I wanted to challenge my art skills too. The pixel post processing can be used on handpainted or pbr assets. So I'll have 2 versions. One that is the lofi-style (the one I'll ship with), and then I'll have a non-pixel, high-fi version of the space for myself. 


Here's a test I did:

This model & texture that I made.

Same model & texture under the post process. I quite like the effect!


Now to polish model & texture the environment.


I was going to take it the handpainted route, but then decided to expand my skills and learn the current state of (stylized) PBR! And where do I start? With wood, ofcourse.


I downloaded the trial version of the latest version of Substance Designer (since my owned copy is......years old), and created one texture of many that I'll need. I'm actually double dipping and using the textures for this space too. haha. This is the scene where the main part of my game will take place.


That's all for now!

Well!! Still working on my bust!

Work In Progress / 17 December 2018

I made the decision to do Christmas shopping & hang out with friends this weekend. XD So I'm still working on my Zandalari Bust past the deadline. This is as far as I got and I plan to finish it before Friday. SO WITH THAT SAID, heres my WIP.


Working from dark to light, and I focused mostly on her chest this weekend.


  

Progress on Zandalari Troll Bust!

Work In Progress / 14 December 2018
Still have alot of adjustments to make, but wanted to get a base color pass on her today.

Things to tackle:

  • smaller necklace coin thing
  • coin grapes put in front of chest
  • hair cylinder need to be less rigid (add edge in the middle to bow it inwards)
  • necklace bits looks too compact compared to concept but in WoW, its actually more like that
  • thicker tusks
  • maybe bra thing swoops lower (towards lower back)
  • .....rig her into a pose. (insert image of spirit leaving my body at the sound of the word "rig")

Handpainted Character Bust Entry

Work In Progress / 19 November 2018

Painted up concepts for the 3D character bust I will be making for Yekaterina's Mini Sketchfab Challenge on Twitter! An original character - Zandalari Female Troll wearing a part of the heritage armor.


Already started modeling last night, so next post will be the finished model. :D
