[#44] - Sketching, World logic and Yannick Gombart.
March 27, 2019
This week was a pretty nice one once I got better after the weekend (and monday), I might have been a little bit too stressed last week now that I think back to it. So this week I'm trying to take things a bit slower, and really give my mind some rest.
Other than that it was a really nice week with a lot of my time spent on sketching some ideas and doing some more research in general. So I'm ready do turn some of these ideas into 3D this weekend! :D Let's move onto some of the sketches!
So this week I looked back at my project and I realised that I didn't really have a good idea for the wall sections that I want and the look they should have. Keeping the geometrical patters that I have define before and really trying to make it look like a sleek laboratory that is self-sufficient and able to survive with minimal human intervention and preserve natural plant life even if humans don't survive them self.
Also what I am trying to do with these sketches is defining all the different elements that would make sense in a laboratory, so we have water purifying stations, Humidity consoles and all the other things that plant life would need. I really like taking my time with these sketches because it's so different than all the other stuff I do, so you might see a couple of additional ones next week!
This week we talk about this amazing sculpt Yannick Gombart, which is a great showcase for really making an asset really unique and a labour of love. Environment art isn't always about the big thing, but it's also about all the smaller details on assets in the environment telling a story as well.
He does an absolutely amazing job conveying the flow of the wood and adjusting the flow of the wood to the actual shape of the statues. This really inspired me to push the quality of individual assets, which I still struggle with at times, so thanks for inspiring me to do better!
All right people! That's going to do it for me for this week, I'll catch you in the next one!If you like these posts or if the tips are useful consider supporting me on Patreon and join all these other lovely people in getting access to the full Tips and Tricks compilation on: https://patreon.com/Beyondextent
