[ENVIRONMENT] Abandoned Swamp House

I am working on an environment for my portfolio. My main concept/reference is this concept from Andree Wallin. I’ve been working on it on and off for a few months. Here are some of my WIP images. The textures and models are all doing in Zbrush / Photoshop / NDO. I try to use as little photo-sourcing as possible.

Great stuff.

I can feel the magic .

So how’d you fix the grass shading under the porch?

Looking awesome :slight_smile:

Looks really cool! Especially the vegetation assets :slight_smile:

Thanks so much all!

I ended up going fully dynamic. There is a known bug with Indirect Lighting Cache and foliage so getting the foliage to match baked lighting didn’t look right. I am not getting bounced lighting but the foliage shading looks decent now.

Knocked out some hero plants this week… For the bush I ended up making a tiling strip to be able to make longer branches… Next week lilly pads and cattails.

Got the trunks of the trees done… On to branches and leaves…

Update of all the current assets in place… One more tree then on to props.

3 things.

You need a skycube with a real texture and not just a blend odd color
The camera has to be up alittle bit more
Tress have to be bigger

Im happy to see the progress on the assets though. They are very nice and clean :3

Are you also going to be adding the fog from the original scene in the background?
