Witness California and its stunning variety through the eyes of a professional Environment Artist! Reference the nature, the urban beauty and its desert foliage that's inspired entertainment like The Last of Us Part II, Marvel's Avengers, The Mandalorian, Star Wars, etc. It's no wonder that so many game studios call California home.
The included photos are perfect reference to get started on a California-inspired project, whether for composition reference, set dressing ideas, foliage ideas, textures, photobashing, etc. It's certainly inspiring to me living here day in, day out.
