Touch Designer- Landscape Sketch
This is part of a series of improving my digital skills. The goal is to follow tutorials and post my progress here. I will use various tools including, but not limited to, Houdini, Touch Designer, Unreal Engine, Unity, Maya, Blender, After Effects, and even Photoshop character and environment concepts.
In this sketch, I explore Touch Designer pbr and noise network to create a simple landscape using height map displacement. This is based on Noto The Talking Ball tutorials.
