This is the 2nd scene from my modeling project 'TravelBug.' The backdrop is Moraine Lake located in Alberta, Canada.
My decision to recreate it made this scene challenging and artistically confusing. Being the most photographed lake in the world, it's easily identifiable which meant I had to try and get it as close to the real thing as much as possible. Maintaining a stylized and cartoonish look yet using a real photograph for reference was quite difficult. I also wanted to showcase winter as a season for obvious reasons 🍁.
Modeling, Texturing, Lighting, Art Direction by me.
