This stunning project was made by Lorenzo Drago.
3D Environment Artist Lorenzo Drago has unveiled a new ultra-realistic project that can hardly be distinguished from reality. The artist has recreated Etchū-Daimon Station, a railway station in Imizu, Japan, in a digital format and made it look as photorealistic as possible using Camera Matching to get accurate proportions and Unreal Engine 5 and its lighting feature Lumen. According to the artist, Nanite was not used for this project, so models are created using the standard low-poly workflow. All the foliage comes from Megascans. To shoot the video, the artist used real-time VR tracking to emulate a handheld camera and flashlight.
"Aside from detail textures and alphas created from photographs, I created all textures from scratch in Substance 3D Painter and made custom materials in Unreal Engine for use with vertex painting or masks to break up the repetition," comments Lorenzo.
We have already contacted the artist to learn more about the workflow behind this outstanding project, stay tuned if you are interested. In the meantime, we highly encourage you to visit Lorenzo's ArtStation page to check out more amazing environments and props.
