In this series I'm going to share some stuff that I'm doing "behind the scenes" when I'm creating artwork with tools such as Stager!
I started this scene with a simple model which I wanted to represent some sort of rock underwater.
Applying displacement tool to the model in Stager.
Since it was quite plain I used custom height, normal and base color maps to make it more interesting and detailed. With that done, I was able to turn this really simple object into a totally different piece.
I finalized the scene with a water surface (which you can download from here), using the basic water material from Stager and a simple spotlight lined from above the water. All in all this scene was quite simple to setup and I mainly focused on the rock element and lightning.
Final touches with water and spotlight.
Final scene rendered in Adobe Stager.
This was part of my 3-piece-series, and there were lots of elements taken from previous work! Check out the full series from my Behance!
