Bioshock LondonAs a second year BA in Game Art team we had 12 weeks to create a Bioshock - London themed environment. The goal was to make it look like a new DLC for the games using UE4. There were 9 of us in total and we all took part in creating the environment at Escape Studios, Pearson College.
I was creative lead and was responsible for overseeing the look and style of our environment. Below you can see the more specific assets I contributed to the scene. You can see the environment in depth at our group submission. https://www.therookies.co/entries/1718
Team members and their main role were:
Hannah Clark - Lead/Environment Artist
Viktor Pecsi - Producer/Environment Artist
Willow Sorour - Lighting/Prop Artist
Kyran Roe - Character/Environment Artist
Giulia Sfogliarini - Writer/Environment Artist
Jakub Ziaja - Tech/Prop Artist
Palagamsan Sivapathasundaram - Tech/VFX Artist
Joel Mulenga - VFX/Audio Artist
Tyrone Harper - Environment/Prop Artist
I created the base cafe for this area using Maya and Substance Painter. I also created the cash register, sandwich display case, cups, saucers and arranged them in Unreal.
I was also responsible for all foliage in the scene. In total there are 5 different ferns for variation, a Hydrangea and a Clematis that was added to a spline created by our technical artist so that it could be wrapped around items in the environment.
For a 3 week specialism I designed an imposing British themed drinking fountain based on the Marylebone lions in London. Using zbrush, maya and substance painter. For the group project I re-topologised it to be more efficient and re-textured in substance painter.
Finally I took part in creation of some materials and other smaller assets. More significantly the main floor tile in our main hall, where I created a broken version we could vertex paint. These tiles were created in substance designer and based on the floor tiles found in Surbiton Station.
