Hello everyone, I’m a long time Source Engine mapper, and I’ve recently taken the plunge to UDK and I can honestly say I love it so far. I have for a long time wished for my girlfriend and I to collaborate on a project, however she doesn’t take much interest in video games. As I am learning UDK, I wonder how someone like an oil painter can apply themselves.
I’m looking for suggestions on how I can utilize the skill my girlfriend has, and transfer it to another medium like UDK and do it in a way that inspires her to learn UDK and to make environments.
I thought maybe something easy to do would be to make a gallery environment, and to convert her oil paintings to materials and to have a cool environment to explore with wild architecture. I think this idea is cool, but I’m not sure it will inspire her to learn UDK.
If anyone has any experience introducing people to UDK with no prior background please do share. Any suggestions appreciated.
Here is a link to her new blog that shows nothing but her work, as you can see she is into both photorealism and abstract.
