"Modular" rock kit, basically 2 texture atlases. One for the generic rocks and one for the standing stones.

Fun had with Speedtree, I used a slightly dodgy "photo scan" technique for the leaves. Pine and Oak.

The lillypad textures were a freebee texture from textures.com.

Seeing as this was meant to be an environment for a game I wanted to have the fish actually swim about. A simple motion path and looping animation was good enough for me.

A simple animation loop for the boat to give the scene a bit of life.

My submission to the King Arthur Artstation Challenge: This one was fun, learnt a bunch, wanted to focus on my organics (foliage, rocks, etc.) Also had the oppertunity to do a bunch of fairly complex shader work plus a little bit of animation in UE4.

Thanks to Kate Molodtsova: https://www.artstation.com/contests/the-legend-of-king-arthur/challenges/65/submissions/44831?sorting=latest for her awesome concept. I got the idea into my head to do a more Celtic themed Arthurian Legend, luckily there was a mythical creature in Celtic mythology called a Kelpie. Kelpies were water spirits that would drown their victims, so I decided to use the Kelpie as the base for the "Lady of the Lake". The idea being that she would drown the unworthy seeking to posses Excalibur.

Anyway, hope you guys like it and thanks to the community for all the feedback.
