Lecture task from university: Create a non-cartoony 3D environment matte based on the movie script from the german movie "Jim Button" from 2018. It described the "Kummerland," a volcano environment that leads to a dragon city inside the biggest volcano. The overall style should relate to Ridley Scott sci-fi movies.
My WorkI did almost everything on my own. I used one rock asset and one rock texture from Quixel and adjusted both to my needs. Everything else was done completely by myself. It was the first time I tried sculpting and my first time to create an environment all by myself. I worked on it for ~2 weeks in my free time and I am quite happy about the result.
Initially I planned to scatter rocks over the ground, but I didn't get to it. Also the smoke plate in the final composite is not moving, I might consider CG smoke next time.
Progression: Keyframe (Photoshop), Lambert Scene, Lighting Mood and final Comp.
I am always happy and thankful for comments and feedback on my work!
Thanks for reading :)
