To be honest? What was Star Wars? George Lucas!!! It was cool back then in the 70 ties! Nothing ever before was like it..and it had character! 2 little shiny robots that behaved like humans! The n th sequal of something that was major in the past...! My advice? Start something new dont copy Star Wars...and give it some heart again! Put the industry to shame!!!😉 my 2 cents..
Well that's a lot of hats !
So why not finish the project but making it super generic? Strip all star wars terms out. Then when the game is finished, allow for modders to make a conversion mod that will reinsert the star wars material? That way he can finish it and we all can get what we want and no one has to give up on their dreams.
Sergei Panin (make sure to check out our exclusive interview with the artist about his cyberpunk scene), an Environment Artist at Mail Group, has shared his latest environment with a marvelous castle on a river. The scene looks like an open-world location with a beautiful landscape and tons of details to study. The design is said to be influenced by Game of Thrones and several French castles. The artist used UE4, ZBrush, Substance tools, Megascans and 3D-Coat to assemble the whole. The best is thing is that Sergei has also provided a nice breakdown to give some details on the production process.
I wanted to create something with landscape and create a more open-world location.
This is my design, but it strongly based on Riverrun from GoT and different French castles.
I have created different modular systems (bridge, towers), meshes, materials, shaders. Also, light and level art were done by me.
