Hey guys! Long time no post in this thread
Just an update on what's going on in my life.. I got a job at Frontier Developments in Cambridge, UK, around 5 months ago now thanks to a guy who comes on here named 'Pomperi' (who is an absolutely amazing artist btw, I now sit next to him at work and he has taught me so much since I've been there!).
I have been working on 'Kinect Disneyland' for the past 5 months, which was a really fun project, the art style is pretty cool and let us mix realism with more stylized stuff. I'll be able to put up some of the stuff I worked on when the game is released.
Since we've finished on Disneyland, we've been doing a lot of modelling/texture practice in the office in our downtime, and I've purposely been trying to work on my 2D skills, as they are the area I feel I can improve on.
Here's a couple of pieces I've been working on. The first one was an attempt at photorealistic painting, and the second is a more stylized rock texture. Both were completely painted by hand, no photos were used except for reference on another screen. Going to be making normal maps/specs soon!
I'm hoping to post a lot more stuff up here soon, so keep your eyes peeled guys
