Here a little recap of almost all the 3D assets done til now for the Japanese Modular House project. Continue reading “Modular Japanese House Content”
I’m still working to build a machiya street with stores, restaurants and privates houses , inspired from pictures of Kyoto and Ise. Here you can see some progress I did in the last weeks. I hope you like it. Since my previous screenshots, I’ve been working on the lights, especially on the material used in UE4.

Another little preview of the Japanese Modular House. Added a few props, like the zabuton (座布団 – ざぶとん typical Japanese cushions used as chairs), the byoubu (屏風 – びょうぶ- folding screens), some sake bottles, barrels, lamps and curtains (called noren 暖簾 – のれん in Japanese).

Another preview of the Japanese Modular House, this time trying to build a noddle (udon in Japanese) shop.
It starts to look good. There are a few assets I still want to add for a more realistic look. Continue reading “Japanese Noddle Shop (うどんや) Work In Progress”

Today progress in screenshots. It’s starting to look good. I’ve spent a couple of days finding some good materials for the stairs (I have 4 different type of wood, the one in the picture is walnut) and remaking the UVs for a better result.

A little preview on the progress made with the Japanese Modular House project. Adding some drawing to the fusuma made it immediately looking more Japanese. Actually, I did a lot of other work for the project during the last few weeks, especially on the “machiya” (町家), the typical town house. Continue reading “Fusuma Japanese Modular House Progress”
An update on the Japanese House project. Almost all pieces are done, but still need a little polish and a good presentation. We also made a snap system to attach pieces automatically without worrying about the grid and the alignment. See video below. Continue reading “Japanese House Progress”
An update on the Japanese modular house. I’ve finally modeled the “hongawara” roof (本瓦葺) a.k.a the very typical Japanese roof composed of concave tiles “hiragawara” 平瓦 and semi-cylindrical convex tiles “marugawara” 丸瓦.

A little progress on the Japanese modular house. I’ve started to do some modelling for the roofs and worked on the walls in a way they look more realistic. I’ve also separated the interior from the exterior. For the roofs (and in general for Japanese architecture) this article is, imho, very useful.
