Hi folks I’m Jesse, an Environment artist and lighting artist from Thailand. I started learning unreal engine in 2019. I work for an entertainment start-up firm in Bangkok as a real-time environment artist and then the unreal engine architect visualization contractor with POPULOUS in 2021.
In this scene, I have strong inspiration from the well-known movie name "TOP GUN" this movie inspired me when I was a child, then they have a new sequel in 2022. I love that movie so much. So I think I should do it in my way with Unreal Engine 5. So I start with retexturing the entire Aircraft carrier with in-engine re UV and combined with megascans high equally texture then blocking the scene with aircraft assets. After that, I start to do the animation and add some visual effects to make it juicier then add some more fill light in the scene to make it more interesting. I use the panorama camera lens because I'd like to make it a cinematic look there might be some more way but I'd want to try this.
Last thing if you have any suggestions or like to follow my artwork I will put my art station link below. thank you everyone I’m really fun on this challenge I hope you guys like this and see you on the next artwork.
