You can create breathtaking natural landscapes. DICE Vegetation artist Simon Barle knows all about this and did some impressive work in Unreal Engine 4. He can teach you how to create environments as good as the ones in the Uncharted and Battlefield series.

Take your level design to a whole new level and make environments as beautiful as the one created by Blizzard Entertainment developers Martin Holmberg and Thiago Klafke. It was one of the finalists of the Allegorythmic Throne Room challenge.

UE 4s’ rendering capabilities allow casual users and professionals alike to create amazing 3D portraits and realistically looking models. The video above shows a work of the Until Dawn lead character designer Baolong Zhang. He made a beautiful 3D model of Daenerys Targaryen from the award winning book series A Song of Ice and Fire and the popular HBO show Game of Thrones.
