Rohan Dalvi + Shangri-La themed procedural islands

FloatingIslandsShangriLa

Over the last month or two, I’ve been working through a fantastic set of Houdini tutorials by Rohan Dalvi:

Rohan Dalvi Tutorials

They reminded me quite a lot of the floating islands in FarCry 4 Shangri-La (which I was lucky enough to work on, which I briefly mentioned here), so for a bit of fun I went with a “Shangri-La” theme.

I changed up quite a few things along the way, but the result is not far removed from a palette swap on original tutorials.
So please, check out the tutorials if you want to know how it’s done, it’s a mostly procedural workflow 🙂

If you want to see some more of the concept for Shangri-La, you should check out Kay Huang’s portfolio here:

Here’s our art director Josh Cook chatting about how we ended up where we did, and the intention behind the art of Shangri-La:

Also, Jobye-Kyle Karmaker shared some insight into his level art process on the floating islands section of Shangri-La, and the reveal leading up to it:

Just a very small sample of the amazing art team we had on that project 🙂
