Welcome to Environment Art Mastery’s Imagination Station!

There’s no limit to what our imagination can conceive, but inspiring our creative thinking and approach is where it all begins. When projects end up feeling like a chore, you’re more likely to give up... I know, because I’ve been there before. While creating the Spanish Town, there were moments when I felt utterly defeated. You can read more about my experience here to understand how projects like this don’t just test our skills, but our character too.

This is all part of the process. My 3D art environment design tutorial teaches you strategies to overcome the most common causes of project abandonment. Usually, a lack of vision, poor foundation in knowledge, and complexity are among the most common reasons.

If you want to invest in your future, then I’m ready to take the next step with you. With the right resources and attitude, you can achieve anything!

📚 Learn how to:

  • Unlock your innate creativity and ideation ability to come up with original ideas that resonate with you
  • Build a solid level foundation that is easy to finalize with beautiful art assets
  • Be able to tackle the entire environment art process: From generating ideas to putting the last finishing touches and optimization
  • Develop a personal, adaptable workflow to create all kinds of 3D environments
  • Use programs like Adobe Substance 3D, Photoshop, ZBrush, and xNormal to paint beautiful stylized textures
  • Optimize your workflows and work more efficiently and creatively than ever

*Results Guaranteed

The content of my course is based on several successful mentorship programs that I’ve held, helping up-and-coming 3D artists achieve excellent results in a short amount of time – but they have to be prepared to keep chipping away at it! These are also the same methods I’ve used to create everything from personal projects to iconic 3D environments that are internationally recognized.

* Environment Art Mastery arms you with all the tools and techniques you need to succeed as a top 3D environment artist in the highly competitive gaming industry. All you need is a burning desire, dedication, and hard work to make the best of the knowledge provided!

🔊 Testimonials

"Tapping into a wealth of experience and a passion for real-time environments, Thiago has assembled a treasure trove of resources to help anyone improve their skills in the craft! Whether just starting or industry vet, there will be something for everyone.  I find the magic is in how he simplifies the process of authoring virtual worlds so you can focus on your epic ideas rather than technical troubleshooting and bug fixing."
Travis Castillo - Principal Environment Artist at Tencent

"After decades of honing the arts of videogame level design, 3d environment art and engaging in its community, Thiago brings us years of (tribal) knowledge distilled down to a single video course. With ever changing workflows, world building for the latest technology of game engines, this is what I dreamt of having when I was starting my career, so you can accomplish more by focusing on the right fundamental information to kickstart your own journey in world building!"
Helder Pinto - Lead Environment Artist at Blizzard

"Hands down the best tutorial for stylized environment art. In this course, Thiago explains the core concepts of environment art workflows to kickstart your career. You will you learn detailed techniques for every step and get an easy to follow breakdown of the decision making process for creating stunning environments. At the end, you`ll have the skills needed to recreate the Spanish town or to build your own, unique worlds."
Simon Fuchs - Artist at Valve

"I feel like I could write pages and pages of how much the Spanish Town series has helped me. Even with 15 years of experience I just struggled finishing environments in my portfolio. The biggest takeaways for me have been the concept of blocking out in engine rather than 3D software, spending time beforehand with setting the project up and giving myself more time in the early stages whilst drastically shortening my sessions to only 2 hours. There is so much more but these are the big ones for me so far. I have been a lead artist for quite some time at my current studio, I really miss the days where I would have a senior/lead who I would just sit beside and watch whilst they explain their workflows and their way of thinking. I'd say that's become even more rare with remote work. This series really feels like having someone sat next to me whilst going through this. I really needed this. Initially I was taken aback by the price of the tutorial, being used to around $10-$30 etc but that 20min vid you did really did a good job of explaining what this is. It isn't a tutorial, it's more a cheaper alternative to a mentorship program but in many ways so much better as it's all recorded, documented and it's also updating and being added to. I wouldn't hesitate again. It really has sparked something in me, something I really needed."
Adam Capone - Environment Art Lead at Ubisoft Halifax

"I have just finished your Environment Art Mastery course and I was blown away by the amount of care and wisdom that you put into the course. I feel as though I have gained a much better understanding of environment art, unreal, and the industry. I only wish that I had found it sooner and saved my money instead of going to school. Thank you for all of your help."
Liam Lefebvre - Environment Artist

💲✂️ How about sales?
