Another update on my personal project:
I have done the very rough layout of the area as well as the individual assets. I have measured them in size in relation to each other, as well as a character - despite at the moment, I am unsure whether I will create a character together with this environment
Together with the rough layout I can begin making individual concept art for most assets, as my goal is to make a very detailed environment, but be smart and re-use textures. The textures will be hand painted. I am currently unsure if I will create bakes for this environment.
Next, is planning out the textures and jumping into asset modelling - but before that time, I might publish a concept or two of the process :)
