Amazing art. I'm curious how the rocks manage to be such a natural part of the terrain! It really looks like they have been there for ages.
Great job and very inspiring! Thanks for sharing.
Frankly I do not understand why we talk about the past of this CEO. As a player I do not care about what he did or not until his games are good. As an Environmental Artist instead I see a game with a shaky graphics. It is completely without personality, emotion and involvement. It can hardly be considered acceptable especially for the 2019 platforms (which I understand will be the target of this game). Well, this is probably an indie group, with no experience facing a first game in the real market. And that's fine. Do the best you can that even if you fail, you will learn and do better. From a technical point of view the method you are using is very old. It can work but not as you are doing it. I bet you're using Unity, it's easy to see that since I see assets from their asset store. Break your landscapes more, they are too monotonous and contact real 3D artists and level designers. One last thing, the last screenshot is worse than all the previous ones. The lights are wrong and everything screams disaster. Avoid similar disasters in the future.
The Sketchfab team has announced that their latest feature — the Sketchfab Model Inspector — is now live! The developers are sure that it is going to become an industry changing tool for every 3D artist. Here is why.
In addition to our existing ability to show the wireframe or change to matcap rendering on any model, the inspector now lets you break down EVERY material into its component parts – including base color, metallic, roughness, ambient occlusion, opacity, emission, specular and normal maps.
Better yet, you can also use the inspector to view normal direction and display a UV checker map. Artists – that’s a great way to proudly show off the quality of your model topology and UVs to clients, employers, and potential employers!
But there’s even more: who needs 3D when you can have 2D! Yes, we’re going old school here – you can also split the inspector into a 3D, 3D and 2D, or just 2D view to view every texture on a model. That’s a great way to show off the quality of your work and to learn from other artists. You can even view wireframe topology in the 2D view to show off your UV packing skills or admire the work of others.
