Herbalist's Cabin

I spent a lot of time painting all the various foliage since they're such a key part of the scene.

I sketched out a few different designs and originally concepted this as daytime scene, but changed it to sunset because I thought it also helped tell the story better.

In the forests of Azeroth, away from bustle of the cities and heat of battle, lives a peaceful herbalist. They grow and cultivate various plants and herbs that are often used by alchemists, cooks, and druids. The sun sets as the day's work is done, and the herbalist retires for a cozy night in.

I am so excited to finally share this project that I've been working on for the past few months. I created this alongside the Blizzard WoW Student Art Contest 2019-2020. I can't officially participate because I'm not enrolled in a college, but did this as a practice exercise for myself following the same guidelines and deadline as the contest. I really enjoyed creating this scene and learned so much in the process. Huge thanks to friends for the advice and feedback on this project.

Everything was modeled in Maya, textured in Photoshop and 3DCoat, and complied and post proccessed in Unity.
