It's time for an early shot of the swamp environment coming to Empires of the Undergrowth with the fire ant update! Various mosses, lichens and slime moulds adorn this damp landscape.

This is the work of Dan Coates, our recently-hired environmental artist.

He's also provided some asset breakdowns showing the complex layers that go into a believable material / texture and game model. In the rock material, each layer on the right affects the final render, simulating way that our eyes and brains expect light works in the real world.
