Haunted House


It’s everyone favorite time or year! Halloween! Okay, it’s perhaps, one of my favorite times of year, it’s right up there with the other great holidays, but doesn’t get the love it deserves. So I thought I would do my part to help remedy that, but making some wonderful Halloween themed creations for you to enjoy!

Seems only natural to start with a classic, the good ole haunted house

Now the haunted house is only a small part of the full scene I’ve made. You can see that below!

I went for a different approach on this one. Normally I do surface shader passes with ambient occlusion passes on top for definition. However, I wanted shadows to be cast, and to be shown, so I decided to light it like any normal scene. However in doing so, I kind of loved how it looked without any textures.

What’s funny is that I found out I liked it like this after a few hours of texturing, which I don’t regret, the coloured shot is also rather awesome in it’s own right. but, the simplicity of the greyscale one cannot be overstated!

Here’s the coloured shot for comparison!
