Mars Structure Art Study

This is a study I did to get some time in with Substance Painter 2.5.

Rendered in Unreal 4

It is based on an old Red Faction Guerrilla Concept.

I hope to find some time to play around with Quixel soon.

Unity Demo01

This video is a WIP of a demo I’ve been throwing together in Unity to explore and better understand its capabilities and use of c# scripting and shaders.

This has been my first real foray into Unity “hands on” and I estimate I’ve spent between 60-80 hours over the course of about a month working on it so far, having started during the Winter holiday.

It has been a blast and time permitting I will get back to the missing aspects and polish soon.
