People seem to like seeing my "walkthrough" on the Comfy Room project, so I thought I would do the same for another large project in the works. I am recreating the Crystal Gems' home in 3d (Steven Universe is one of my favourite shows!), and if all goes well, will do the exterior and then work my way up the beach (I really want to do the donut shop too!). I thought it might be fun to show my progress, as turning 2d designs into 3d can be both fulfilling and frustrating!
Getting some props detailed! Not sure yet whether I will be adding cartoon outlines or not yet, we shall see.
Blocking in basic shapes and colours in the bedroom and living area. Starting to set uvs on the colour atlas.
Rough block in using screenshots as reference. Quite a lot of the scale didn't translate into 3d very well, so some artistic license has been used
I spent a very long time trying to work out a rough floorplan of the house - no plans seem to exist so I used various screenshots as reference
