Star Wars Art Director Goes Full Bob Ross

Star Wars Art Director Goes Full Bob Ross

Welcome to this episode of the KitBash3D Festival, where we witness the living legend, Art Director Nick Hiatt, pay tribute to the G.O.A.T., Bob Ross (full KB3D x Bob Ross series here!) through the joy of 3D painting. Nick takes our Wild West kit and creates a classic western shoot out in a virtual world. During this episode, he quickly finds the best shot with his 3D camera and shares some tips to achieve a dramatic composition. Nick also answers some questions from our live audience on Twitch and walks us through creating his western scene in Maya and Redshift. Don't miss his tribute to Bob Ross where he reminds us "if you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong".

Nick Hiatt has worked on many projects you may have heard of...such as, Destiny 2, Star Wars : The Force Awakens, Spider-Man : Into the Spider-Verse, just to name a few...


Nick Hiatt is an Art Director, Matte Painter, and concept artist in the film and video game industry. He is also the founder of The Terrain Domain, where he has been building a library of 3D photogrammetry terrain assets you can access at his website here
