Ugh, I know I have been quiet recently – a mix of a lot of things happening in the real world (some good – watch this space!:D) and also feeling very disheartened every time I opened the castle scene. I also blame it on playing Dragonage: Inquisition. They really know their stuff. And makes me feel like I don’t know mine – but if I keep at it, one day I will get there!
A key “trick” seems to be filling the environment with lots of tasty little distractions – which covers up seams and directs the eye away to travel around, a busy world is a pretty world! So I am adding “busy” – first up, some smashed rocks. Quite happy with these although the alpha blend is playing up and trying to be shiny. (why, Cryengine, Why?) Then I made some cliffs and all of a sudden I didn’t hate the scene as much. Still needs sooo much work, but I don’t hate what I see at the moment.
