Substance designer tests

First try with Substance Designer trial.

With a very adaptive learning process and instant viewport feedback, SD is a program that definitely will be in our workflow in the future.
After many experiments and numerous node connections we manage to create a 4K customizable tileable stonewall texture with AO, 16bit Normal, detailed Displacement and Diffuse map.

GrowFX experiments

Experiments with GrowFX, custom geometry leafs and texturing. Tried something simple for first try.

More updates will follow, with better, precise texturing and  more variety at geometry leafs. GrowFX is a must-have plug-in  for vegetation variety and randomness.

Next stop Athens

I don’t know where to start, but if I want to be fast, I moved to Athens to start a new cooperation with a great visualisation studio Fat Tony rends.


Athens. I admit that this city wasn’t my favourite. But it’s all depend by the perspective. Undoubtedly you can find hidden gems here.

As for Fat Tony rends, I feel already as a part of the team, we are doing very interesting and creation-motivating projects but most of all, we are having a great time each other working with something we love. I wish I could show you something but we are not allowed to publish yet anything. So stay tuned, subscribe to Fat Tony rends facebook page and soon interesting stuff will be there!


Live creatively – Stay inspired!
