Well, small/medium intuos pro is way cheaper that iPad Pro + pencil... just saying... And it works better with ZBrush...
It might ultimately be proof of concept now, but the point of showing a low-count bounce raytracing that still looks decent especially after denoising gives us a nice roadmap on the future. Maybe given time, we will move to this as the new standard or at least a probable alternate to baked lighting.
Fuck you I'm stuck in some bullshit game some dickhead thought would be exciting.
Tor Frick is back with an awesome UE4 project. The artist used Unreal and Quixel SUITE to build a stunning cinematic with a sci-fi cockpit. Tor was responsible for some of the impressive mechs and other designs from Fallout 4, Wolfenstein and other well-known games, and it’s always nice to see his personal art.
Here are some details on the project:
A small cinematic with my cockpit booting up. Started this a few years ago as a workflow experiment. Shelved it for a long long time but recently took the time to finish it up. Everything is made without a dedicated high/low poly, using another approach that I will detail more in a blog post.
Textured everything using Quixel SUITE. Ran into a bug in Unreal at the last minute, so had to capture everything real-time in-game, so at least it runs! Took the time to make this a bit of a study in cinematic lighting, camerawork, etc., using audio and so on. Texture resolution ended up being quite obscene, in some areas equivalent to a 32k texture per 50 cm for the texel density.
A little is known about the approach here, but Tor is going to share more details in a blog post, so stay tuned. Make sure to discuss the project in the comments below and tell us about your works.
