Introduction to Amsterdam Mist

So, in this, the first volume of the making of Amsterdam Mist, I'm going to talk about the structures. Structures being the bridge, the bridge beyond, the bridge we're standing on, and all the buildings that make up the two sides of this canal. Now, there's a lot of techniques and features that went into this. For instance, brick textures. There's multiple brick textures on the street and on each of the buildings I'm going to show you how each of these textures were created. And I'm going to show you how to modify what you've created in order to use it somewhere else, which makes it important.

It's not exactly what I'm doing, it's how I'm doing it. Because you might never have to make a street in Amsterdam, but it's the techniques that I'm going to teach you here on creating all these different steps might come in handy for something that you're faced with. So now let's see what went into Amsterdam mist. Let's see how much you can learn based on what I learned while I was creating it.

There are currently no FAQs about Bert Monroy: The Making of Amsterdam Mist, the Structures.
