Whimsical Pine Tree Fairy
There are small forest fairies in the woods watching over us, keeping us safe. This was a small personal project I worked on besides working on my senior thesis. I hope it can convey a story!
Forest fairies watch over us from beyond the pines!
I had been working little by little on this small personal project throughout the final year of university. Although I was busy with my senior thesis, I felt the need to work on other things once in awhile. This project was my small forest oasis!
I focused on expressing a whimsical feeling. It started out as just the fairy as a turntable as a means for me to try out substance painter and marmoset toolbag.
Check out my preliminary concept sketch and progress work below!
I didn't have a grounded idea of what the final outcome would end up as until I worked my way through modeling
1 part fairy baby.
2 part bendy pine trees to add character!
The tree scene started out as an experimental xgen file, but I took it into a different trajectory by combining it with my fairy character.
Overall, I am satisfied with the final result. I added the forest background noises to help sell the ambiance.
I am the proudest of my own work when I can successfully convey a story.
Thank you for viewing!
