Blog [#49] - May Mentorships & Motivational Tips

Evening people!

This week was a nice one and stressy one, being able to take more ownership of stuff at work while at the same time needing to split it up between teams was a real challenge, but a nice one! And it's only temporary anyways, s next week everything will be going to normal. But on the other hand, I got some really gratifying stuff to do in return. And then to make this week even better I'm writing this one from home (Wednesday) because we got a bank holiday! So real good week so far :D

Mentorships

Also, having the day off gave me some extra time doing some preparation for the Mentorships that I will be starting this week, prepping some templates and discussing time slots and previous projects so that we know what to focus on and what the goals for the projects will be going forward :D

I can't wait to see what they will come up with!

Last weekend was really nice for some shape exploration with my current scene and redoing the entrance area of the environment. Because last week the space felt to claustrophobic and I wanted to get rid of the modular square feel of the individual pieces.

Looking forward getting some more hero and decoration pieces in, but I also don't want to make it feel like a super industrial space where most of these environments end up in.

For this week's inspiration I was going through some of the stuff that people did for the NVIDIA Metropia challenge that finsihed a while ago, and stumbled across this one by Alexandr Melentiev. And again, we have gone over this time and time again, but I'm always amazed by these big projects that showcase nice worlds! 

And because I am currently working on something similar when it comes to inspiration myself this was really interests me for the different shapes and the combination of green and whites to create a nice contrast.

So thanks for inspiring me Alexandr Melentiev, and a job well done on creating this beast of an environment within such a small timeframe!


Allright people!
That's going to do it for me for this week, I'll catch you in the next one!

If you want to see something added to this blog, or if you were inspired by a piece of art this week, please share it down in the comments, would love to see what drives you to create your art!
