For my second portfolio piece I wanted to make a stylized forest and test out making more shaders. With the inspiration from the beautiful movie Wolfwalkers I decided to make a painterly feeling magical pond scene. This scene took 4 weeks halftime 4h/day to complete.
The programs I used for making this was Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter and Unreal Engine to render the final product.
To add more life to the scene I made butterflies, fog and fireflies particle systems and made an animated water shader to add further motion to the scene.
I want to thank my classmates and teachers for giving me feedback along the way and making me able to bring my piece to this level!
