The making of Streetfighter 2

Streetfighter 2 was one of the greatest fighting games of the arcade gaming era. In this video it explores how the game came about and the innovative techniques they used to create outstanding artwork.

I am currently designing a course showing you how to make your own fighting game similar to Streetfighter.

I will post more updates when it is near completion


Blender Cyberpunk in Unity HDRP

Professional game asset creation for Unity using Blender and Substance Painter

Cyberpunk is a vibrant, exciting and neon drenched game environment appearing in more and more video games.

In this series I am going to show you a professional production process for creating both low poly and high poly modular game assets for creating a cyberpunk city for use in the Unity High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP)

We will be modelling in Blender 2.82, where I will be showing you lots of cool techniques, shortcuts and best practices. We will be UV unwrapping the models to ensure we get high quality professional results.

We then jump over to Substance Painter 2019, one of the leading procedural texturing applications used in the game design industry today. I will be showing you how to create 4K multi layered materials that have that wow factor and the realism that is expected in today’s game industry. We will also be covering opacity layers and emission channels for the neon glows.

Finally we take our optimised low poly 3D models with High Definition texture maps into Unity and set up and render a realistic scene using the HDRP settings in Unity which have some of the most realistic and impressive lighting and rendering capabilities in any game engine at the moment.

By the end of this course you will be very confident with making and texturing your own game objects. You will have an impressive piece you can include in your game design portfolios.

So why not enrol today and I look forward to seeing you in my course.

Covered in the course:

  • Create professional 3D models in Blender
  • UV unwrapping in Blender
  • High definition texturing in Substance Painter
  • Using emissive textures in Substance Painter
  • Exporting HDRP textures for Unity
  • Modular layout of buildings in Unity
  • Create a full city scene in Unity
  • High Quality reflections in Unity
  • Setting up realistic lighting in Unity using the High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP)

Fantasy Art

Inspired by the old Conan comics, I decided to create this image.

I set up the characters in Daz Studio:

I rendered out the scene using Iray and a shader called Sketchy which gives some nice ink style outlines. Then I took it into Photoshop for some re-colouring and image post effects.

Not a bad image, took me a few hours to create.

Color comic character

A quick experiment with the female character for my comic. I wanted to see how she would look in full color and this is the result.

There are several passes of inks, shading and color layers.

This would be part of a full page spread, so, is one panel among many. The character is the brightest part of the image so as to direct the viewer’s eyes to her initially, before following her eye line down to the gun on the table.

The dialogue which would be added later would explain what she is contemplating. This would be an important plot twist, as such this is an important image in the story.

3D Drawing

This is Amanda, the female lead character in a comic I have planned, featuring the werewolf from an earlier post.

I have decided to go with a black and white style as I quite like the level of detail on the character.

The 3D model is from Daz studio. I used Unity to light and render the model. Then I used Photoshop to create the final drawing.

If you like the style, you can discover how it’s done in my Udemy course listed below: “Create comics without drawing”
