Hi! My name is Brit Pease, a visual development artist from Irmo, USA. I love creating different types of environments that can exist anywhere and at any time.
Before CGVerse, I attended an art school. That school focused more on character design. As an environment artist, I didn’t feel prepared for the field. I chose CGVerse because the topics covered are in environment design. It was nice to be able to learn from professional artists who are doing the same thing I want to do.
I wanted to do a project around a dock and ships. This was a challenging project to create a busy, but not too crowded piece.
When I first started, the biggest problems I faced were a lot of things to think about and remember, such as lighting, coloring, setting a scene, perspective, and more.
If you are looking to improve and become confident in your work, this mentorship would work for you. This CGVerse mentorship helped me focus on starting big, and learning how to place details to create a cohesive artwork.
During the mentorship, we did texturing, lighting, layout, and produced assets in 3D. In 2D, we did photo bashing and improved the lighting. My mentor helped explain every step of the process. He made it easier for me to understand the process of decision-making. He explained the concept behind why the lighting or the building was in a certain way, instead of just saying that is how it is. My mentor ensured the progress of my artwork by pushing it forward and making it look more believable.
It was a different approach to what I was used to. The mentorship was fun, engaging, and full of knowledge. I learned a lot of useful tools.
