Derk Elshof has shared a sizeable collection of materials made for Portal with RTX using Maya, Marvelous Designer, and Substance 3D.
Today, let's have a look at some incredible 3D materials created for Portal with RTX by Derk Elshof, a talented 3D Artist and Senior Material Artist at NVIDIA.
For those unaware, Portal with RTX is a remastered version of Valve's legendary 2007 Portal, announced nearly a year ago and released on December 8, 2022. Launched as a free DLC for all owners of the original game, the remaster boasted stunning graphical updates, DLSS-powered performance gains, ray tracing, and detailed 4K PBR versions of Portal's textures and materials.
Derk recently showcased some of these materials in a comprehensive ArtStation post, providing us with a more in-depth look at the remaster's impressive surfaces. According to the artist, various 3D software was used in the making of the 3D materials, including Substance 3D Painter/Designer, Maya, and Marvelous Designer.
"My main task was bringing back the nostalgic materials from the original game to 4K PBR, with the feedback and direction from Valve, Vern Andres-Quentin, Hunter Hazen, and with friend and colleague Stan Brown who I had the pleasure working with," commented the creator. "Big thanks to everyone involved in bringing this project to life!"
