³He is an IP of my own, concentrated mostly on the life of a space janitor in a spaceport in orbit at an Helium-3 mining colony.
Here’s how i’m currently working on it, and the full gallery
Started work on a storyboard, first draft.
When i’m content with a still, it is taken to a higher level of detail to explore different sections of the IP as i go. Examples:
Modeling setpieces.Making them into prefabs in Unreal Engine.Assembling the prefabs into a usable environment. I’ll be drawing over these to decide what i need to change/add.
Using these screenshots i’m doing paintovers:
And from feedback off that i’ll detail some more things in Sketchup.
Next to that i’ve also begun work on the space stations and spaceships. very much in the conceptual phase but i’ll post detailed versions later.
Example of AO render being used as underlay for pen drawing to quickly visualise a concept:
Previous image was not rendered yet, but here is an example on how i would treat such a prop.Older concept of a spacestation.
More work soon!
