A few months after graduation I began a mentorship with Ryan Benno, an environment artist at Insomniac Games. Originally this project was meant to elevate my final modular environment project from college and make it truly portfolio ready. It became a total renovation and with good reason. From fixing overall scale and layout issues to learning about Ultimate Trim and World Aligned Materials - the difference between the projects is considerable.
This courtyard was a new addition to my original map and became a "vertical slice" for the project's revamp. A larger plaza still exists beyond the courtyard gate.
