Realistic (kinda) low poly (sorta) canyon road (definitely)!

I created this as a testcase for a job interview. After submission and a very optimistic initial reception, I didn’t get the job. I guess they found someone cheaper. Heyo! At least, I hope that was the case, perhaps someone else did come along and deliver a better result. My result is pretty good for the time given but obviously not perfect.
The scene was created in 3dsMax with lighting and rendering using Mental Ray, Zbrush for the rocks and Photoshop for the textures and final composite. The textures we’re all made by myself as well. I spent a grand total of 5 days to complete the scene.

Below is the reference photograph I was asked to replicate as well as a wireframe overlay.

Greetings, dear visitor!

I'm Jeroen, a 3d modeler and videogame artist from the Netherlands. I enjoy playing games but I looove to help create them. I'm pretty good at texturing, illustrating, concepting, working with game-engines, particle systems, physics simulations, rigging, skinning, animating and lots more but I'm most in my element when 3d modeling!

I'm available for freelance work too!
