Candor Castle is a real time 3D environment built inside of Unreal Engine 5. This is my thesis and final school project as a student at CADA in Denmark before I graduate. The goal with this piece was to get better at building large scale environments. And to learn some new workflows along the way.

Throughout the project I learned more about terrain creation, modular workflows, how to light an environment and foliage creation - which was some of the key areas that I wanted to focus on.
Below are some screenshots I took along the way

For the terrain, I took my blockout from Maya and imported it into World Creator as a guide, so that I knew where to sculpt the mountains in the background.

These images represents me experimenting with the lighting. It was a challenge to get it to look just right.  The first image is the default lighting, and the last one is the final

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like the project I made.
