Lovely work ! You mentioned "When lighting the scene, I used Light Functions to create the illusion of light passing through clouds, thus lighting the environment unevenly" do you think you could show what is the setup to get such a precise result ?(meaning highlight the area you want?)

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.

Ubisoft Pledges $8 Million Towards Educational Initiative
13 November, 2015

Ubisoft Montreal is pledging $8 million towards the promotion for tech education in Quebec by use of a dozen different programs.


The company is strengthening its educational initiatives with the announcement they made  today of the creation of Codex, which is a group of programs for developing the next generation of techie Quebec students. Over $8 million is being invested into the program over the next 5 years and this includes 1,000+ hours mentoring done by Ubisoft’s employees annually.

The company has 17 partners and 12 different programs in Codex. When it comes to the younger students, this initiative will involve the support of organizations such as the Breakfast Club of Canada and Kids Code Jeunesse. For students in high school, there will be one-day internships or mentorships available through partners like Fusion Jeunesse and Academos. For those in University, a 10-week gamelab competition for student developers, offers bursaries for students who excel in their academics, and paid internships among other programs.

To realize out ambition, we are not simply setting up the next generation. We are preparing spirits open to a new world. We achieve this using methods based on entertainment, curiosity, and self-learning. Above all, we do this in an open and collective manner, in collaboration with organizations, students, and teachers at all levels of education.
~Yannis Mallat, CEO, Ubisoft Montreal
