ARTIST Hyeon Jin Park Soft­ware Maya, Zbrush, Sub­stance Painter, Quixel and Nuke

In­spired by the PS4 game, The Order: 1886, Hyeon Jin Park cre­ated this piece as part of an MFA the­sis. Tak­ing nearly a year to com­plete, Hyeon spent six months on the mod­el­ling, and the rest of the time on com­posit­ing.

This im­age is a re­sult of Hyeon’s love for the de­sign of the 1900s, and is an ho­mage to the writ­ing rooms of that era. He pushed the en­ve­lope with this im­age, specif­i­cally with match­ing shaders be­tween Sub­stance Painter and ren­der­ing with V-ray. Not many artists had tried this work­flow at the time of cre­at­ing the im­age, so he had to ex­per­i­ment to try and find what would work.

In fact, the process be­came as im­por­tant as the fi­nal re­sult. As Hyeon ex­plains: “My goal was to demon­strate my skills with V-ray in Maya and Un­real En­gine, in­te­grat­ing VFX with video-game work­flow. I mostly cre­ated low poly­gon mod­els with nor­mal maps; ex­cept for props close to cam­era. Now I am pre­par­ing the scene for ren­der­ing in Un­real En­gine.”­sta­­hand86
