I ended up publishing two videos to Youtube - one showing my full forest, and another focusing soleley on the particle effects. Here they are if you would like to take a look:
I feel as though I should feel a sense of relief and freedom, but in all honesty I just feel quite sad to see this chapter come to an end.
I'm extremely proud of the work that I've done and submitted, and this whole MA experience has been an absolute pleasure. The UCLan Games Course feels like more of a family than just a university course, and it's an honour to have been able to be a part of it for so long. It's rare to find a place with so much creativity, passion but also with the amount of care people have for one another. It's a truly special place, and if you ever get the chance to study there I'd say do it in a heart beat.
I feel that I've grown as an artist and as a person, I've learned so many techniques which I can now take forward with me and use in future. I also now feel that I can actually open UE4 without panicking, so that's a good sign at least. ;)
It feels like the right time to leave this blog be now - I want to be able to come back to it and reflect on my journey. Sure, my journey will continue, but I feel as though this chapter should be left as is.
Thank you so much for sticking with me throughout my MA, I've had a wonderful time and I hope that you have enjoyed reading along with me. <3
