This project was my final for Digital Design Aesthetics. I was tasked with designing and creating an environment using the Unreal Engine. Once the project was turned in, I took an extra week to refine the level and tweak areas that were discussed during critique. I was inspired by forts seen in games like Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Uncharted, and movies like Pirates of the Caribbean. However, I was limited to use only the assets provided by Epic in addition to other free, licensed material.
I took advantage of this project to learn as much as possible. I made my own ocean with the help from Epic's Ocean Plane Blueprint and I edited a few materials and particles. Critiques and comments are welcomed. Thanks for viewing!
