Environment art blog #38 - New Project! Overscoping and Maarten Hermans.

Evening people!

Hope you are all doing well out there!
I had a busy week at work again! (which is nice, I love it :D) but outside of work I had a nice and chill week, figuring out some more personal work stuff, modelling in blender and thinking about the next thing to start on!

I'm also doing a little writing when I am on my commute to work and the tutorial is growing at a steady pace, although I do have some issues with Notion lately where the offline mode doesn't really work all that great if you close the app at one point, so I need to remember to open the app and load the page beforehand, which is a bit shitty because I always forget! :D

Also slowly refining what/how I will be doing my feedback/mentorships a bit more, but still much to refine on that.

Let's dive into the personal work!


Mister Handy

Did some more modelling in Blender and just getting used to the feel of Blender itself with this Fallout Fanart, I don't think I am going to go all the way through to UV'ing, texturing and all that stuff because my main goal with this was to get to know Blender.

That being said, I might optimise it and unwrap it at some point and then just hand it away like an untextured freebie so people can have fun texturing it them self.

Next project!

So, blank slate again.
I was planning on doing a medieval next, I already did a load of research on the topic anyways!

Now the thing that is holding me back is what the purpose in the end will be, will I be focusing on a smaller more unique environment, or will I do another Modular environment that can be bigger and will allow me to put it up to the Unreal Engine Marketplace.
I still lean towards the second one, but then the question becomes, how do I set my environment apart from all the others already on there!

So yeeah, definitely some stuff too think about, because I do want to focus on something smaller and super polished as well, hmmmmn.
More on this soon! :D

Nostalgic feels ahead! This really brought me back to those old Coca-cola adverts, which I really liked, they did a good job of making you feel warm and fuzzy inside and I feel that Maarten has completely nailed the feeling but then added his own spin on it giving it that alternate timeline feeling!

Thanks for inspiring me Maarten, you did an awesome job conveying the feelings that they carried with them.


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!
