Vertex Tutorial - Hard Surface nDo2

Lots of great tutorials on vertex, but I went with this one, as I felt it would helped me the most now. I created this quick sci fi wall with a door, the process was really quick and I can see myself using it to make some quick props or environments.

Update - Prop 1 - Hellghast Power Supply

So I picked two props to work on before Tuesday, I started with the one I believed to be the hardest one. First prop, from the game Killzone 3, I believe its a electrical converter or generator. I couldn't find much more reference material from the game or real life electrical power supplies that might resemble this.

Painting my scene with Substance Painter

So I spent the last week going over a couple (to say the lease) of tutorials to learn Substance Painter. I really like the program, it has a bit of a learning curve, but once I got how to use the basics, everything else just came naturally. I started painting the base and have a good material feel to it, its also great to have my own material that I can just go and paint any part of the structure I want to match.

Update - Light tweek and fixing Material on Landscape

So I watch a couple of tutorials this week, and went over more lighting documentation on Unreal. Have two lighting options I was playing around with, I am leaning towards Option 2 as I think it gives me a better scene. 

Documentation: Landscape cutom 

Option 1

Update - Rocks are in scene!

I finally have my rocks in the scene, I feel like it took too long and I was starting to lose confidence. I will probably end up moving them up a bit, I just quickly set them up tonight.
