New Blockout


Something about the previous blockout wasn't working.  I decided to make it a transitioning scene from a forest into the edge of an Ishtar Collections city from Destiny's Venus area.  I also want to tackle vistas/skyboxes the way Bungie does them.  I'm happier with this layout so I'll keep choppin away at this for the week.  CGMA Class starts next week, so this project will come to a halt for a while.

A sad day. Really sad.

The Las Vegas shooting happened today.  It's really put me in a drained state.  It's tough seeing two political sides slam it and its creating more toxicity.  It's exhausting to see people call others who are speak out against the violence and the 17 guns the man stockpiled snowflakes, repugs, and just flat out hate for all groups of people other than themselves.  All while Puerto Rico is torn apart, Florida is recovering, North Korea, and Houston is still remaining a sewer.  I haven't felt like this growing up, because tragedies didn't impact me and my sports/grades.  Now as an adult looking at this, it hurts a lot more. 

I've moved onto a concepting and blockout of a new idea:

That great feedback!

He gave me lots of amazing feedback and guidance on this pass.  Check out more of his work here: https://www.artstation.com/chrisnvasquez

-Stronger Normal Maps for Water
-Changed grass hue
-Sub Surface Scattering on all foliage assets
-New Doghouse
-Added unique blade grass to help with blending between dirt and grass
-Rotate trees that depicted UV seams
-Placed Spotlights and Pointlight in dark areas to illuminate more.
-Decals
-Cutting back on shots



I'm Probably leaning towards the 2nd shot with the multiple light-shafts.  I need to better convey the space in the bottom shots but I think with a bit more playing tonight I'll be on the right path
