A winning hero prop entry for a challenge organised by the XYZ 3D Art Discord community. Since the challenge's theme was 'Magic' I decided it would be a great opportunity to learn more about shaders in Unreal Engine.

The crystal glowing effect is a combination of a crystal shader applied to the main mesh, a sphere with an emissive fresnel shader (to emulate the glowy aura) and a point light.

For the crystal shader, I used a camera vector with a water noise to create the subsurface effect. I then blended that with the textures created in Substance Painter, to preserve the edges, damage normals and the carved symbol in the middle.

I created the prop from my own concept.
