WIP - Mod & Personal Projects

After a long while of working on non-modelling/texturing related tasks (generalist duties and cloth sim for the win!), I am finally able to reveal a part of a project I have on the go.

(click images for full res)




These two swords are a small part of a mod "pack" I am creating to release for the Rome 2 mod community to use for their own mods. I am creating multiple packs, covering different cultures focusing on their weapons/gear/accessories that are missing from the vanilla game. This first pack will contain another half dozen variants of this sword type (cherusker/single edge sword) as well as a collection of La Tene period swords. Then I will be moving onto axes, knives and spears.

[The swords up above are using a 2k texture and the directX shader, with these gifs grabbed directly from viewport, as the shader works a like a dream. For the true in-game assets, the textures are reduced to 512]


Next update (coming soon) will include some of my other projects, including my latest zbrush sculpt (WIP) and concept art for my next character.

Internship work at Epiphany Games

Over the last 12 weeks I have been learning and interning at Epiphany Games in Sydney and working on asset creation for their RTS title Frozen Hearth

My main role was to help organise and check the already created assets to the aesthetic of the latest assets and update accordingly. I also got the opportunity to build some assets to be used in game. All assets modelled and textured by me, all copyright and ownership is that of Epiphany Games.
