For the January challenge I decided to make an environment narrating the legend of how Maori slowed the sun. Here is the link to read the tale in full beauty.
Although I did give myself artistic liberty interpreting Maori culture, I’ve tried to make the environment communicate their rich heritage. Have a look around and you’ll see wakas - Maori canoes, as well as wharepuni - the communal houses. The iconography & reliefs you see are all based on historic Maori culture.
All models were made in Blender from scratch, I have hand painted textures inside of Blender or Photoshop with the exeption of the grass texture which was created using Substance Designer.
As this is my first time posting to Sketchfab, fingers crossed there will be people who like it!
