Hyborian Regions by JV-Andrew
Hyborian Regions
There are several "Conan the Barbarian" related projects happening this year, ranging from the Conan 2d20 adventure game by Modiphius to Funcom's Conan Exiles survival game, not to mention the rumours of Arnie's Conan movie still going ahead.

This is a version of Hyboria I based on a composite of several maps other people have done over the years (including an original sketch by Howard himself)  that offers what I think is the most consistent layout of the fantasy continent of everybody's favourite Cimmerian.

As far as the civilization co-relations are concerned, they are general approximations as they are fantasy civilizations inspired by the historical ones.  Some have multiple descriptions that may be contradictory, so where this has happened, I've used historic civilizations that work for the 2d20 RPG because it's people that will be playing that game that commissioned it (Modiphius will be producing their own map of Hyboria, but release date not known and no guarantee it covers entire continent).

There are a couple of points that maybe should be different - I think Howard's original books refer to Western Sea instead of ocean...  Also, Kush is traditionally placed SW of Stygia, to the left of Darfar, but i never actually put it in.

Upgrade price if you have Substance painter 1 is $99 (for Indie license). ***edit*** Upgrade price now reduced to $75 ***
Substance Live customers do not get automatic upgrade without paying extra (but still a very good deal if you can't buy outright).

Things I forgot to mention in video...
Smudge and clone tools will be very useful - something I was wishing was available in SPainter 1.
Material channels and output settings have been improved e.g. emissive and AO channels included by default now rather than having to add them manually.



But generally speaking, it pretty much kicks the ass of any other 3D texture program, and with the improvements planned for this year, the gap will keep getting bigger.

You see that in today's email from DAZ?  You wonder if it's something you can use?  WTF is it for anyway???

Well, Morph3D is DAZ's store for selling game-ready versions of Genesis 2 assets... which is actually VERY handy for game developers (characters with four LOD's available will remove a lot of the pain of getting Genesis optimized inside Unity game engine).  Also, purchasing from the Morph3D Store or the Unity Asset Store both grant you license to use those purchases in your game(s) without having to worry about what you can or cannot use with a game license from the DAZ store.

It's not aimed at Poser users as such (although I'm sure they can try the free versions and invest in the full package if they like how it works for them), but is aimed squarely at game developers (especially indie developers who often find photogenic characters are often out of their price range), so it would be more appropriate to compare with Mixamo Fuse or some other game character system that can handle mecanim animations (such as U.M.A.) rather than other character systems intended for artists.

Desolate Green Planet by JV-Andrew
Desolate Green Planet
Environmental concept painted in Photoshop CC.  I tried to make it look like an oil painting with a canvas overlay after main painting was done.

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
Born and raised in Scotland. Moved to London in 1995 when I was still a session musician, and have remained there since.

I used to do a bit of art in my school days, was pretty good with pastels. Started dabbling with digital art around 2006, and have (hopefully) been improving since then.

Looking to revive my musical side while keeping up with the digital art side.
