Lucas Sabatka worked with his friend Nate Borman on a fantastic short video, even while he was in a difficult personal position. Lucas used Blender to create all the assets, while Nate worked with Source Engine for all the animations.
Hello there! My name is Lucas Sabatka (Discopears), I’m a recent high school graduate and self-taught artist from California with an interest in digital art and game development. My greatest passion is creating convincing and immersive environments, exploring what brings an area to life. I’m currently working with a close friend to launch a small studio where we’ll be working to develop games and explore the new frontier of virtual reality. Additionally, I’m looking to expand myself professionally as an artist.
The following video was a collaboration between myself and my friend Nate Borman (Nutrafin), an awesomely talented animator. I was responsible for all of the environment models and props seen throughout the video as well as a few simple vertex animations. Nate did all of the animation, rendering, and postproduction.
