Lair of Forgotten Bears

This is the Environment for an upcoming series of animated storybooks entitled, "Lair of Forgotten Bears." This will also be used to create stills for an accompanying book series ( www.lairofforgottenbears.com ). The scene was constructed using mostly purchased assets (modeled in Maya). I brought these assets into Blender 2.8 where I rebuilt all the materials and changed the color palette to match the look and feel of the cartoon's characters. Different parts of assets were altered and combined to create many of the structures and landscape elements. The "Lair of Forgotten Bears" is a children's story book I will be turning into a new series of animated shorts over the next year. The recently released Blender 2.8 will be used to complete every step of the process — from modeling and materials, to rigging, lighting and animation. Thanks so much for the support and wish me luck! I have a lot of work ahead of me.
