The Last Standoff - Environment Piece

So this project is something I developed as part of one of my final MA projects, although I am pleased with the result I in no way considered it a finished portfolio piece. After a few months, I have decided to come back to this project and develop it through to a polished piece I can proudly include as part of my portfolio.

The inspiration for this is ‘Standoff!’ by Lucas Esche -

Currently, I am having some trouble deciding what exactly I need to improve on and would love a fresh set of eyes to take a look!
Personally, I think I need to improve the snow, especially the bits sitting on the roof as well as the fire particle effects. I don’t have too much knowledge on particle effects so if anyone would be able to send me some helpful tips or link that would be much appreciated!

I have a lot of recorded bits of development since the beginning of this project so if anyone would be interested in a breakdown of anything, let me know.

Here’s a video to show it all off
(Quick FYI, the snow particle effects were taken from the UE4 ‘Particle Effects’ project, with some slight alterations)

Let me know what you think!

Thanks for the feedback! I 100% agree with you on the snow, it really needs some improvement, and i’ll look into sharpening up the wood. Here’s what the wood looks like underneath the snow :slight_smile:
