Catoon castle


#1

I like fortresses. I’ve been to several in Europe. For example, castles Karlstejn and Friedland in the Czech Republic. Grandiose buildings. Fortresses always attract my attention. I have read a book about the fortresses, author: Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc. He interestingly explains the construction of fortresses, the strategy of defense and capture in different eras. I want to try design a small fort. It will be located in an imaginary country. It be located on a mountain massif. It will grow out of mountain.
It’s an interesting job to practice for modeling simple objects, and paint them. I plan to use the programs: 3Ds max, Zbrush, Substance Painter. These are very interesting programs. I want to have practice in them.

At the top of the mountain, the princess lives in the castle tower. Someday someone will free her. If he wants to. =)

A warehouse.


A roof gutter system.


Barrels for rainwater
The model of the Viking was not made by me. It is downloaded from the Internet. I use it to feel the scale and proportion of the scene.


Barrels for rainwater, сart for transportation of barrels to a warehouse.

I’m going to build several buildings for Downtown and Royal Palace.


#15

For saving time and unify process to build a house, I create a build-set. It 'll consist of several variants of windows, doors, stone slabs, decor panels, rafters, logs. The draft of house was made to have a visual representation what kind of detail it might consist of.


#16

Every detail has its own mapping. But different maps. This will make work with textures easier.


#17

Finally, I collected the house from detales. It has mapping and ready for texturing

#19

This is a difficult job for me, because I’m an animator and not a modeler. But very interesting.=)


#20

Setup materials for the house in Substance Painter. It was necessary to remodel some parts of the house, that the textures were applied more correctly.
