It’s been ages since I have been hands-on doing some art or animation.
For warm-up on art side, I have started 3D recreation of a painting by Venetian painter – Canaletto.
The painting is Alnwick Castle.
Next step is 2nd iteration – Modeling touches & final textures on blocks, terrain sculpting (also some work on textures/blending), populating terrain with clutter(veg, rocks), River material (idea is to get the murky water with flow as in painting), Rocks everywhere, Wonky trees, Sky & very important – Lighting.
Also last chance to try to prepare textures for the painterly look rather than current realistic one.
