Swamp of the Departed

This cinematic environment is based on the swamps of Atchafalaya River Basin, as well as drawing some loose inspiration from Avatar and The Lord of the Rings. This project was a culmination of all my skills, ranging from environment work, matte painting, lighting, foliage, procedural materials in substance designer to full characters. I set out to create a fully immersive experience so I tried to ensure that every element to the scene felt natural, like they belonged in the same world.

The Swamp King character (based on Glauco Longhi’s concept) went through several changes, transitioning from a film workflow to games. To push the lighting and atmospherics a little further, I experimented with light functions to mimic crepuscular rays as well as various fog cards.
