So… Been a bit… not gonna lie I didn’t expect a lot of the past few weeks that as happened. Stonehearths production is coming to a close which is extremely surreal for me, I had my appendix taken out (That was fun), and I started modding and renders again… but that first one really hits me.
Well to celebrate the long awaited arrival of Clan Amberstone and the Geomancers arrival in the game, I decided to make a new style of image. Something I’ve seen around and it seemed perfect, doesnt take too long, can show everything within an idea, as well as show off every model I feel needs to be in it and its function within the game, while I can include some visual flare here and there kinda like the Goblin Temple Render I did a few years back (Damn,… its been that long.)
Here it is:
It’s smaller than my usual ones. I do have a full size available and will be doing a turntable video for my youtube channel! I loved the amberclan models since the were first shown, during the desktop tuesday I just fell in love with the golems as well. Now for the breakdown!
The Amberclan Rabbit is a basic body with the Geomancer job, I had considered adding a human Geomancer as well but I felt that the idea of compiling nature would be nice as there are no models in the render that are industrialized or not made by Amberclan. The Stump he is standing on is actually a modified Stump Hearth Model, removing the metal and filling it with the wood colors… a relatively simple modification.
I used a V Shape green stripe to make the grass patterns as well as a darker green square scaled to various sizes for the addition detailing. The blue backdrop is kinda like you’d find in a photography studio, a cloth type material flowing in a singluar direction for a shady gradient. I also added some bird feathers to the headband of the Amberstone… thought it was a good idea and I stand by it!
I’ll be doing more of these, Likely ones for each profession and a few home designs for templates in game. Now onto Mod news!
FEP Will likely be getting another expansion pass! Recently done a good amount of modelling for it. Here’s a peek at the lastest of the models made:
Really enjoyed making this. Was a challenge to get the globe functionality in there without breaking the style. I’m hoping to add a static animation to it so its on an angle instead of it being still. Will have to figure that out though!
On the topic of Stonehearths Development news:
I’d really like to thank everyone at the team… @Sdee and everyone else working on Stonehearth. I made a massive leap forward 5 years ago with my first skeleton render… I remember someone sharing it on stream and seeing Tom’s reaction to it and the great community response… I just had to keep going.
It’s because of this game, and the people around it that I found voxel art which I only got because someone was kind enough to give me a Qubicle Home Version key here on the discourse. A style of modelling I’m comfortable with and the confidence to make my own models and ideas and work towards them. I learned general 3D modeling in Blender because of my want to be better, I learned how to analyse and replicate art styles before this game even released.
This game as a whole has literally altered my life in way I never thought I could ever do, before this game I was just would of high school with no passions or ambitions to do anything but what life required of me… now I’m a future game developer and writer.
So again. I deeply thank and appreciate every drop of sweat, every long night, every second of very day the dev team has put into this magnificent game. Although they didnt have the chance to fulfill everything they set out to do, they have managed to effect someone enough to change their life. I wish the dev team the best in their future projects, and that they find every ounce of success that they’ve had passion for what they’ve been doing here. I hope you find a least little happiness knowing this game has made a difference in at least one persons life
Thanks for a great 6 year Radiant! Wish you all the best!
