For this project I chose to create a scene of an autumn landscape. My goal was to create a scene showing the peacefulness and beauty of nature, and I completed this project for my Senior Studio II class in my last quarter at SCAD! For this project I sourced the textures from Quixel, adjusting them within Maya as well as in Photoshop. I also used Substance Painter for one small part, which was to create a mask for where the edge of the land meets the water to use in a layer shader to blend the edge with leaves.
