This project has been my favorite. I have big plans for it. Or rather… a big tree and town planned for it that isn’t pictured in the reference.
Here’s a few progress shots. I take them as a finish out the goals for the project that day. It helps me see where I’ve been and where I’m headed. They also help me make a list of improvement ideas.
Just a quick walk through of the workflow for the images below: I start with an idea/reference, then block out the major forms paying little to no attention to minor details, then add some basic materials and basic lighting, improve the lighting and then uv/model more detailed. Just started texturing today. I’ll be adding basic texture to get a feel for the scene, and then go back and add more detail to the textures/materials.
