Strange Foliage Diorama

This is a diorama I created while studying at University. I wanted to improve my foliage creation skills while creating some strange/alien-ish looking plants. This was a lot of fun to work on and I plan to take it further and create a whole environment with lots more plants in the future.

The foliage was created in ZBrush and textured in Substance. The tree texture was created in Substance also. I could have sculpted the whole tree as one unique model but I decided this project would be a good opportunity to get to grips with SpeedTree and practice the Speedtree to UE4 workflow. Rendered in UE4.

This piece of work was picked as the front cover for the Degree Show guide book.
