Hello there!

It´s been a while since the last time I post here, but here I am again :D

I decided to start a new environment project with some main objectives to achieve in mind. And I am looking for some feedback/tips to learn/improve this work. 

(Original concept:https://www.artstation.com/artwork/KxArr)



So this concept it´s a challenge for me, it has a lot of details, lot of diferent depth and form and a very interesting atmosphere that I would like to plasm in the environment. I would like to achieve some level detail similar to film/CG alike.

For now I´ve been playing with the basic dimension of the town/street and the camera to achieve the lookalike of the concept.

Here you can see how its going :)



Sooo, I am going to list my main objectives in this project to have then in mind.

-Reach some CG film alike level detail.
-Start using ZBrush to get that level detail I want. 
-Texture with substance and lights?? (I am not very sure with this for now)
-Learn more about environments in general.

Next step:
-Start sculping some wooden boards and pilars in Z.

I am waiting to hear your feedback/tips to improve this concept!

Regards!!

    So finally I´ve had a little bit of free time to work again in this enviroment, I´ve been working in the wooden boards, this is how it looks so far. I would appreciate some feedback. :)




    Next step: Sculpt the pilars, poles and the stairs/down runway.

    So finally I´ve been able to move along with this.
    It´s been two busy and a little bit frustating weeks but I finnaly had a little bit of free time to work :)


    I focused on the pilars and some poles this time, here you can see the final models.




    Next step: Bar floor and close house walls. If I finnish them in time in will try sculpting some assest like the barrels and the singboard.

    Before going on with the floor and the walls I decided to resculpt the pilars and the poles of the runway, and now I am so much happier with the result. It took a lot less time than I expected, so I think I can increase my productivity henceforth. :)

    Here I am again!

    First of all, thank you some much @Ashervisalis !! :)

    For the last few days I´ve been working in the walls and the floor mostly, but I still need to finish the walls from the inside house/bar or at least start blocking where everything will go :P. I also started sculping the first props.




    Next step: Finish the bar (blocking and walls), depending on how much time that will take I could start sculping the balconies too.

    Hello there Artist!

    Thank you so much @DatsJustB !

    For the last 2-3 days I´ve working in the bar blockout and the balconies in my spare time, I still need to add basic blocking assets in the bar to get the feeling I want with it. I added one new camera angle which focuses on the bar. 

    Hope you like how it is going. :smiley:

    I would be glad to hear your feedback!






    Next step: Finish bar walls and floor, and fill the bar with basic asset shapes (or finnished assets depending on the time I will dedicate to this the next days)

    Hello back!

    Last few days it´s been pretty hard, lot of pressure involved, hey, but here I am again XD

    I didn´t feel pretty motivated these days and I didn´t follow the steps I wanted, instead of that I´ve been working in some assets and the Back Ground house more than in the bar.

    Here are some pictures!

    Lamp sculpt in ZBrush:



    Next step: I would like to finnish with the background house in the next days and complete the previous step I was going to do.


    *I do not why but I want to recommed you the next group, it help me to focus xD*

    Looks amazing so far mate. I really like it. I'm looking forward for the next results and keep it up! Don't slow down :) Are you doing some retopo on those woods or you just leave the "base mesh" before sculpting as a mesh for baking?

    Cheers!

    @AdrianZaplata thank you so much!!

    About the woods, they don´t have any type of normal, displacement of bump, it´s all mesh. For now I am not thinking about baking or doing some retopo on them, my main objective right now is too achieve some cgi like environment but without any mesh optimazation, I just want to focus on the final result, as this is a personal project and I will be the only one using this scene I think it is not necessary (for now) to do any kind of optimization. :)

    Good night to everyone!

    It hasn´t been a very productive week, I´ve been feeling a little down during this week and not very motivated. I think I am reaching line where the changes and new things I create and add doesn´t make a huge impact in the scene like it did before (or at least that the sensation I got), I modeled some assets during this week, hope you like it.

     
    Next step: Idk, lets see where what the future got for me xd (jokes aside, create more assets)

    Looking good! I think you really need to move the camera over to the right to fit the concept and composition better

    are you making this to be explorable in 3d? or just using UE for rendering

    @JesseL Thank you so much!

    I am to give a look to the camera, thank you for the feedback :)

    Right now I am using Maya with Arnolds´ AO for rendering, for now I am not thinking about importing it in UE (cause the scene has too much polys for real time rendering), and I am not pretty sure what you mean with being explorable in 3D, you mean like a 360º rendering? If that is what you mean that´s a pretty cool idea, I will think about that. :)

    I was thinking more a level in game/exploration. Although 360 is cool, just be very very careful before choosing as there is drastically more work in that
