Throwing my hat into the ring once again. 
 

After recently travelling to Japan I wanted to try to capture a location that I enjoyed whilst also diversifying the current environments within Counter Strike. The level will take its theme and insipiration from 'Fushimi Inari Shrine' in Kyoto.

Shrine is a 5v5 Competitive Bomb Defusal Map with its theme and inspiration taken from 'Fushimi Inari Shrine' in Kyoto. 

This is the initial release for timings and layout. I would appreciate any constructive feedback.

I absolutely love Kyoto, re-imagining such a beautiful place is a tall order :)

If i were to make a Kyoto inspired map I would be sure to make use of the diverse environments of the city, from the paved streets, to the river, to the mountains and bamboo forest. Even if they're jsut located in the peripherals of the map. Good luck!

This Torii gate was my first model without following a guide. A lot to learn but pretty excited to see I'm capable of these things.

New playtest hopefully for the 13th to test the smaller map and rework of sites.

There's a lot of unnecessary geometry on the cylindrical pillars that could be better spent smoothening out the curvature on top :)

Keep it up!

Took a quick break from the props and textures to go back to the map and flesh it out a bit more. Would like to thank those from mapcore and some close friends who gave me feedback.

Alpha 3 is now ready for test, layout and difference below.

Just wanted to say that the overview is kinda confusing, you might want to darken the non playable areas more.

Been awhile since I've posted anything, Im smashing out as much as I possibly can do each day with brush work and texturing. Though I'd like to prevent showing any sneak peaks till the end.


At this point in time I would like to extend an Invite out to any potential Environment Artists looking to increase their portfolio and obviously have a hand in the competition. The sheer quantity of custom assets that I require most definitely out-way my current speed and skill set when it comes to 3d modelling etc. Happy to go 50/50 in anything, just want to get the project completed at this point and have a final piece to show on a Portfolio.
