Current WIP

My heritage and background mean a lot to me. This is a Penang-inspired OW fanmap that is a futuristic representation of my culture, based off of this concept by Qi Xyuan Tan. I aim to make it a full scale, walkable environment in UE4; and use it as good learning experience for making tileable textures, trim sheets, and understanding scale within game engines.
