This is scene I've wanted to do for quite some time. It's based off a Samurai Jack Episode: Jack and The Three Archers. I've already done some production art for the scattered armors, weapons and rock formations. I'll post them when I gather them all together.
So I've gotten a couple of questions regarding the materials that I used for this project.
The materials are very, very standard as UDK goes. Screen cap below.
So to give a basic overview I have a diffuse with a reflection lerped into it and basic normal and spec with some control values for instances.
Most every object uses this set up with exception for the glass eyes, sky and other odds and ends.
As far as the ink on the object silhouettes I'm using the sobel edge detector posted on the UDN website. http://udn.epicgames.com/Three/DevelopmentKitGemsSobelEdgeDetection.html
Most of the look and feel is obtained through texturing and lighting.
If anyone else has any questions please ask in the comments!
So, I'm pretty happy with how this came out in the end. I ended up removing a few assets that I had made because the scene was starting to feel cluttered. The texturing style of Borderlands is one of my favorite styles to paint so I had a lot of fun doing this piece.
I did a simple day and night matinee system to go with it.
Nothing too complicated but I like the see how environments transition though different lighting.
Also a very special thanks to all my friends who helped me on this one with ideas and critiques. Especially
and Uber-props to Sean Couture for those sweet sweet graffiti he made for me.
I'll have more shots of this one in the completed projects section.
The Edge shader is destroying my poor antennae in the background.
I have a few more props to make here and there. I need to do a some foliage and some extra terrain materials/meshs as well.
I kinda don't like the awnings right now, but we'll see how I feel later.
So tiledshot basically kills my sobel edge detection since it's based off the screen resolution.
I have a bunch more textures to do but all the big ones are done. After all this is set up I would like to do a sky matinee for the scene and make a video of the lighting changes.
