HALF-LIFE 2 RTX - Materials

Excited to share my contribution to the Kleiner's Lab showcase / annoucement trailer from Orbifold Studios.
I was one of the NVIDIA Artists assigned to assist the project, helping the team recreate original assets to 4k PBR and provide mentoring in material creation. I created these assets as benchmark materials for the project to provide examples, and recorded a live demo of my workflow for the exposed brick and paint/plaster wall for the team.
Lighting in RTX Remix was a new experience for me, and balancing between realistic light sources, respect to the original, and artistic vision was a challenge, though the lighting for the suit was probably my favourite part!
I feel very lucky to be contributing to another classic title See more details here: http://www.hl2rtx.com/
