Preparing a new Twitch stream

 

Hey together, it feels like ages that I posted something. I was pretty busy the last couple of weeks because of the relocation but now I have found some time and preparing a new Substance stream about Snow and some good tricks to fake the snowy effect without special detail maps.

It will take a bit till I have a final idea how to structure my next stream. Because the last one was really unstructured.

So see you soon at Twitch.

The new Stream:

Feel free to leave a comment and feetback.

Substance Live Sessions

I had a hard time the last few weeks because of the upcoming release of Sacred Legends and some unannounced project I am not allowed to talk about.

I start a new project. I want to stream how I work with the substance tools at least two times a month.

I wanted to write a blog entry for every stream but I turned out that I didn’t find the time to do so.
But now here is the collection of streams of the last 2 month I think.

I stream on Twitch and upload the videos later on YouTube.

Stylized texturing in Substance Designer

Hey there is some new update belongs to my personal education. Current I am playing a lot with substance designer. and this tool is damn powerful. Substance is really fast in creating realistic Textures and nearly everyone, mostly Concept and traditional Texture artists told me that substance is only for realistic game textures and not for hand painted looking games. … Ok Challenge accepted! 10 Hours Later! I got a result.. I still need to tweak the math and the blending logic but for 10 hours’ work.  I call it ok.. I had to builtup everything from scratch with my own Generators and colouring logic.

The initial idea for this substance was a bet with one of our Artists, Bastian Brem at Chimera Entertainment .

the bet was that I can create a stylized texture in his style in substance spending less time.
