Hi everyone! My entry for the Rookies awards 2022 is the final project I've done for my master's degree, a game environment made in Unreal Engine 5:

 Breath of the sky

I made everything by myself, with the exception of some VFX. I've put a lot of effort to create the tools that were necessary to make this environment like the virtual render texturing for the grass, modular assets, vertex painting shaders etc. Always keeping in mind creating a style that I was happy with. The concept of this scene is also my idea

I learned and enjoyed a lot during this process, I hope you enjoy it as well!
