BeneathTheClouds is hopefully going to be a story driven/adventure platform game, where nature and two worlds get toghether for an epic adventure :D
In this part goes the moment from when you cleared an area that was infected by "the darks" and freed a fragment (a seed of light). Which in this case happens to be the key to the DarkPine woods, your next quest.
-I did this piece knowing I wanted to use is as a mockup, just didn't know how to tell the story.
So I started imagining things while painting on top of a render I took while moving around the scene previously made.
First idea was the whoosh of energy when the key appears. And from there I had all most of my questions already asked. I needed a 3D key to spin around, I wanted to give power to the whoosh, so I added the tree leaves on the ground and so on.
At many moments I lost my path and got lost on Youtube tutorials for the particle emitters, for example! and many more xD
I really enjoyed this and Blender is a magnificent tool to create surely anything you can imagine, just gotta find that tick that the youtube teacher has clicked and you don't xD
