Blog [#47] - Base set expansion and Using Instances.

Evening people!

It was a slow week this time, after a nice weekend relaxing and guiding my parents and my brother around Berlin together with my girlfriend I have been having issues with getting back into the right flow again! It's so weird that such a thing can throw of your schedule (also, the nice weather isn't really helping!)

How was your week? Did you get creative or productive?

Updating Thumbnails

A thing that I did spend a little time on are updating the thumbnails for the future blogs, I got some really good feedback from people at work!
This led me to revise the focus of the thumbnails and images that get shared onto social media to be more focused on the actual content of the blog and removing the artist in this section, because this is a weekly recurring thing and is going to remain in this blog anyways, so it's something that people expect when you have seen a couple of these before, but it isn't something that pulls in new people.


Base set expansion

The small chunk of time that I spend working was spend on doing a little bit more modelling for the base set that I already had, expanding and thinking about what was missing, such as elevators, doors to staircases, entrance desks, decontamination rooms, etc...

All of those things will really help the setting and make it feel more like an actual laboratory.
I'm so looking forward to this extra long weekend where I can get some proper modelling in again! It's gonna be good!

This week I got inspired by these beautiful environments that Justin Owens did for Last Year.
The thing I love about these is the simplicity of the scene itself, but then once you start looking deeper, there is a nice attention to detail in the materials and the lighting. I'm not a real fan of the bathroom scenes but the hallway scenes are really nice!

Thanks for inspiring me Justin!

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!
