Hey again, Zed Heads! Since you guys liked my zombie head tutorial, I decided to do another one for you. This time, we’ll look at building a quick environment using photos and some digital tomfoolery.
For the game we’re making, cranking out environments at a fast pace is a must. While I’d love to hand paint and craft each image, this technique takes much longer and adds very little to the finished product. That’s where photos come in — they give me the basics of a real place, and let me fill in the rest of the details that the team needs to build out the world. These pieces are still fun to create, and it’s sometimes surprising how much goes into a simple photo manipulated landscape.
Let me show you!
