This Stunning 3D Castle Environment Was Inspired by a Real-Life Location

The author utilized Blender and Unreal Engine 5 to set up the digital scene.

Take a look a this serene and tranquil 3D castle yard environment, created by Frank Radecki, a Senior Lighting Artist and Level Artist, as a personal project. Inspired by the architecture and vibes of Vajdahunyad Vára, a real-life 19th-century castle located in Budapest, Hungary, this real-time scene was set up using Blender in combination with some models and materials from the Megascans library. As for rendering and lighting, the author utilized Unreal Engine 5 and its Lumen tool.

Here's a cool WIP GIF showcasing the environment during its different stages of production:
