Fortnite Forests

When Epic decided to make a new map for Fortnite, I was tasked with making the new foliage. I worked closely with Paul Mader, Antoine Guilbaud as well as several other tech artists in developing a new pipeline for making trees for our game. This was a huge learning process for me and it gave me a new appreciation for those of us focusing on foliage for games. The end result were trees with higher fidelity that were less expensive and had a lot more functionality that took advantage of our different time of days in the game. I honestly had a ton of fun making these and feel the team created a fun, warm and inviting island that is as much fun to explore as it is to play in. Rick Kohler was art lead and Pete Ellis was AD.
