The Tigers Shield (Sun Jian Fortnite Back Bling)
A continuation of my efforts in the latest Weekly Drill to produce some Back Bling for Fortnite! The Tigers Shield for fierce Sun Jian AKA Tiger of Jiangdong!
As promised here's more Romance of the Three Kingdoms inspired Fortnite Back Bling! This piece is called The Tigers Shield, in homage to another fierce warlord, Sun Jian AKA Tiger of Jiangdong. I used a feature I have never used before which was the cloth physics modifier and I am really happy with how it turned out! The texture for the tiger print was created by myself after watching some YouTube videos on how to create different types of tiger textures. Many of the videos created fairly realistic or too simple textures, so playing around with the nodes I was able to get what I believe to a Fortnite inspired stylised look. Sam Bowmans YouTube video (Procedural Nodes (part 38) - Procedural Tiger Stripes in Blender) provided the best tips for the tiger texture, so a thanks to him!
