Hi all, I just wanted to share with you a fun little side project. There were 3 main goals I wanted to achieve when working on this: learn to sculpt in Blender, learn to texture in Substance Painter and test the cinematic rendering capabilities of UE4.
I’ve always loved the design of Jim Henson’s creature shop version of the ninja turtles from the 1990 movie. Donatello is especially hilarious and I thought this would be a good time to recreate him. Below is a gif of a dancing Donatello along with some images and “behind the scenes” type stuff that I thought someone might find interesting. I didn’t really pay attention to triangle count because I knew there would only be one character to render. The bg is just a screen cap from the film. There is still a lot more I would like to refine, but I think I’ve spent enough time on this little distraction… back to gamedev’ing. Enjoy
For some reason, I get an error when I try to upload the gif, so here is a link instead:
