Hello there. This is my latest project. Main challenge was to get that distinctive underwater macro look. Working on shading and lighting was especially fun. Feedback and critique are welcome.

Main shader and post breakdowns:


  1. So cool to see this. I remember your Gargantua and "cherry tree" scene and you just confirm here that you are a true wizzard. I'd definitely love a complete tutorial for this scene too.

  2. BlackRainbow on

    Thanks for the warm feedback. Nice to know you like it so much! My next few personal projects will definitely be on underwater themes, too much fun doing them. And i think it's about time for me to start doing tutorials, everyone just keeps asking for them. Although i definitely dont think this project is that flawless as you think it is. Bit of self critique here: All my personal projects lack story. Just presentations of the objects i've worked on, nothing behind. And that's a main thing i want to change in my next project.
