Painted Textures for a New VR Project

Painted Textures for a New VR Project

I really love concept art, old science fiction book covers, and movie posters. It was fascinating to watch the making of The Empire Strikes Back where I learned that many of the back drops were paintings done on glass and lit from behind to create those grand and epic sets. I wanted to what it was like to be inside one of those strange and wonderful places, but still keeping the style of the artwork. My latest VR project will be to recreate some epic scenes for a Google Cardboard release. The above image is a screen shot from a test scene in Unity representing someĀ  mountain and country side imagery. All objects are 3D models with a hand painted texture applied. The lighting is in real-time, but will be baked for the final release.
