So I am doing a bit of practise lately and throwing together quick one-hour shots of environments, mostly as practise. I have tons of ideas I know I will never build anyway, so I'm just quickly building things to see how it goes. Interesting workflow-experiment. Sofar I hve not used any kitbashing whatsoever, just built what I needed. Two of them were on my livestream so I'll post youtube links to those when they are up. This is the first three that I made:
.... I give up.
I'm looking forward to seeing the Livestream links posted up to YouTube so that I can see your workflow. These results are amazing for an hour without any kitbashing.
maeks mi cri everytiem
The livestream going up on youtube is awesome.
Get these in an engine.
I'm also surprised at the quality of the materials in Modo.
Cool stuff Snefer!
Second scene, round corridor, has alot of instancing, so there I invested time in detailing up some of the cloned areas so that the overall level of detail would rise very quickly, and then put minimal effort into the stuff that is not repeated. Pretty happy with the result, I should have put some more effort into defining some areas that are not clearly lacking, like the end door, and the round doorways.
First scene Im not happy with at all. Good example of where I lost focus a bit and spent the time on things I shouldnt have. But also a trickier scene to pull off without any design to reference, but then again, time well spent since I proved to myself that my initial idea didnt work out anyway, so only an hour lost there.

Looks great man! Really puts me in the spirit to give Modo another shot
I think you have a good understanding of your tools and a clear vision of your scene, which is the basic of doing such great work within this short time.

But I mean come on. These are over an hour. By like 12 and 13 minutes. FAIL.
Seriously keep doing these.
No, it's using a procedural shader.
ZacD: yes it would, I have used this approach before on several occasions, one of the reasons I want to learn how to do it faster, better, and to take it further myself, since im handicapped when it comes to concept art
Ironwall, i did that in the stream yesterday, extremely simple materials though
Hello Snefer. I'm a a fan. And these are great!
But isn't the process your using essentially kit bashing, using replicators, reusing shapes, etc, with the only difference being that your creating some fairly detailed stuff on the fly?
You've talked a little about getting the "most bang for the buck"... Any chance you might list out some things that you find really work well to that end? Or how you decide what to spend time on during these?
Lol Ikr. This would take me days .
Thanks for sharing the videos!
Tepcio: Well, I suck at vegetation so I dont know if that is something you would like to see!
Here is a new one from todays stream, took about 1h 15 minutes today because derp and I wanted to invest a little bit more time in it.
