Course Info

In this course, we will go through the process of creating an amazing Victorian style game environment! We will start off by modeling the ornate pieces inside 3ds Max and then take them in Zbrush to enhance them. We will then model our modular pieces such as the pillars, the doors, the roof, the floor, etc. for reusing them in Unreal Game Engine. We will use Substance Designer to create a variety of tileable textures such as wood, plaster, gold, and fabric. We will explore different types of techniques such as high poly to low poly modeling and weight normal to low poly modeling to create our props in our scene. We will also utilize Marvelous Designer to create realistic cloth and drapery that will further solidify our environment. We will jump into Substance Painter to texture our props and once everything is looking good, we will setup our models and materials in the game engine. We will dive in creating lights and post fx that will set the mood for the overall Victorian Era game environment.

    • UPDATED Review
      This is an awesome collection of videos explaining in details the whole process of building an interior environment for AAA games. It goes through the all spectrum of software one must familiarize with to become a successful environment artist. A very good step by step class
      I highly suggest it.

      Note: there was an issue with one of the zips files, which was fixed promptly: they now all work.
