What is a 3D environment?
A 3D environment is a computer-controlled digital setting created with the illusion of depth. It can be both an outdoor and indoor location, from which you can get visually specific sensations. This can be a special atmosphere with realistic objects – vehicles if it’s a street, or furniture if it’s a room, or vice versa – non-realistic when it comes to sci-fi.
Today you can easily get amazing surroundings with a maximum sense of reality. With the advent of 3D computer graphics, they became more sophisticated, improved the visual effects of games and many other projects. It is a video game that provides 3D artists and designers the opportunity to imagine and present vast worlds. Creative ideas aim to expand the player’s gaming experience and reach an audience with a truly exciting universe.
What are the elements of a good 3D environment? A well-designed background, well-modeled 3D props naturally located in the scenery – from architectural elements such as pyramids or arenas to chairs and plants. Textures, colors and lighting also play a major role in 3D environments.
Indeed, a large amount of detail corresponding to the artistic direction is necessary to create an absolutely breathtaking environment. As a result, a 3D environment is a compelling interior/exterior scene with particular storytelling and game production techniques.
What is 3D environment design?
3D environment design is the process of creating buildings, landscapes, mountains, and other assets related to the environment in three-dimensional space – height, width, and depth.
A 3D environment artist starts designing from drawing plans, sections or constructed perspectives to sketch various areas in games. After that, an orthographic projection is crafted – the representation of physical construction in 3D art. Once it’s ready, a 3D environment artist begins with digital modeling developing the Cartesian grid and projects on each axis – X, Y, Z – that form architectural or natural elements in 3D space. When digital modeling is completed, it’s important to frame the composition because it establishes the view that helps game players observe the scene. The peripheral vision and a perspective view are the key features of framing in three-dimensional art. The peripheral vision interprets the spatial scene, while the perspective view indicates the ground horizon in-game composition.
3D environment design revolutionized the way of playing games creating them in 3D graphics that provide a realistic look, increase the fidelity of objects, and enhance immersion in the gameplay.
Who is a 3D environment artist?
A 3D environment artist (also known as a 3D environment designer or modeler) specializes in creating various backgrounds and scenery for various projects. First of all, these specialists are engaged in the development of video games. Today it is an industry that costs a million dollars, where thousands of professionals perform rigorous work. For this reason, it is important for a 3D environment builder to be passionate about games and art in general.
Typically, 3D artists start with concepts created in the initial stages to turn them into a true 3D work of art. They can use references or simply their imagination and creativity. 3D environment artists should carefully consider all the requirements of the gameplay provided by level designers. If they create a too detailed 3D environment, this can lead to a delay in the game. So, consideration of all technical aspects and game engine peculiarities can prevent most issues in the creative process.
What are the stages of 3D environment design?
3D environment design has 5 main stages of development that determines how each detail should be located or placed in gameplay. Let’s describe the process of crafting 3D environment step by step:
- Blocking out. During this phase, a 3D environment artist defines scenes and creates layouts for games. The key task of blocking out is to select the essential ideas for storyboards that will be used in gameplay.
- Texturing. It’s the process of adding more details to objects like colors, shades, depth, etc in 3D space. In general, textures are the surface quality that look naturally in a three-dimensional model.
- Sculpting. It’s a technique that sculpts 3D objects similar to digitized clay. Sculpting is a multi-layer process in which 3D environment artists add several layers to polish objects and make them realistic.
- Low-poly and high-poly modeling. A polygon mesh designed in 3D computer graphics with a small number of polygons is called low-poly modeling. High-poly modeling has a high count of complicated meshes in art projects.
- UV unwrapping. It’s the process of designing UV maps – the flat representations of 3D surfaces. When polygon meshes are created, they are unwrapped into UV maps. Once it’s done, a 3D environment artist can add more textures to the artwork.
At each stage, different tools are used – Substance Designer / Painter, DAZ Studio, etc.
How to hire 3D environment design artists?
To find a professional and experienced 3D environment artist isn’t so easy as it seems to be at first sight. It’s a time-consuming task for HR managers and business owners because they need to set job requirements, contact art agencies, check skills and portfolios. The choice of a suitable working model is the additional factor that influences a hiring process – be it in-house employment, outsourcing, or outstaffing – you should think over them and select carefully. As you’ve noticed, this list can be endless.
So, how can you find a 3D environment design artist for your company? In general, it depends on your project scope and what results you want to get at the end – a top-notch product, high revenues, market leadership, etc. The other thing that you should bear in mind is the number of 3D environment artists with whom you establish working relationships. In this case, it’s important to figure out how much money you have in your budget and how many professionals must join your company.
Once you’ve decided all these mentioned-above things, choose outsourcing as a working model for your project – it’ll reduce your financial expenses and provide high expertise in 3D backgrounds and sceneries.
Why outsource 3D environment design services?
Outsourcing is a good option for you when you strive to get high revenues and have skilled and professional artists on board. The key reasons why you should outsource 3D environment design services are cost reduction, professional expertise, and reliable project delivery.
So, let’s draw you an example why outsourcing is a suitable model for you. Imagine that you work on a large game project, and you need to craft thrilling backgrounds. 3D environment professionals will be at hand as they sketch, design, and plan panoramas, landscapes, fields, and many other objects in three-dimensional space. The advantages of outsourcing 3D services are lower financial expenses, higher profits, and more professional expertise in 3D environment design. By choosing this working model, your company will receive benefits like competitive game products and fast delivery time.
The other advantage of outsourcing 3D environment design services is the company’s reputation that you can check through reading reviews on specialized websites. Kevuru Games has expertise in 3D art, and our team of artists is experienced in crafting any natural, panoramic, architectural, and many other objects.
