Work continues slowly (and when I get the time) on my passion project of recreating the town of Suran from the Elder-Scrolls universe. Looots to do yet, but I’ve recently passed a milestone of completing one of the most characteristic and recognisable elements- the siltstrider!
Here’s some 3D things I made recently:
Alien. Based on an old drawing of a potential kid’s book character. Sculpted in Zbrush, retopo in 3D Coat, rigged in Blender and rendered using my rudimentary PBR shader in Blender Cycles.
Lately I’ve passed a major milestone (for me anyway!) in that I’ve finally completed a project I’ve been working on now for months. It’s been a long but enjoyably challenging process. I started with no idea what I was doing and have gradually reached the point where I feel confident and enthusiastic about the whole process. I’ve been sculpting in Zbrush…
Until I ended up with this:
For those interested in this sort of thing- I’ve made a new sketchbook on Polycount.com to post my 3D artwork development. I’ve decided to invest more heavily in 3D from now on so hopefully I’ll have plenty to show there as time goes by.
The first thing on there is a rather ambitious project that I’ve been working on for the past month and a half. The plan is to recreate the fictional town of “Suran” from the game Morrowind in a more modern game engine (Unreal Engine 4)
What this means in real terms is learning a load of new techniques in 3D art then putting them to the test in recreating an entire detailed environment. There’s houses to build, trees to grow, cobbles to lay and a whole lot of placing, refining and adjusting after that. It’s all pretty ambitious for a noob like me but it should be a great way to improve I think. If you’re interested in that sort of thing you can follow along here:
I’ve been doing a lot of 3d. It’s an exciting new frontier in the world of visual art and I want to know how to do it! It started off as a way to improve my paintings by building my competency for making 3d reference models, but I’ve decided it’s too satisfying for just that.
I’m still an amateur frankly, but I’m pretty pleased with a few things I’ve managed to do so far so I’m showing them off here.
Faisal the wizard- from an older painting I did: Are we nearly there yet?
Just generic heads for practice
Sultan Silliman’s car from another old painting of mine:
Based on a desielpunk style mech I designed:
And finally some spaceships:
None of these I consider finished by the way- I just tend to be a bit of a scatterbrain and flit from one thing to the next. Anyway, that’s all for now.
