Howl's Moving Castle

This is a 3D recreation of Howl's Castle from the Studio Ghibli film Howl's Moving Castle, attempting to be as faithful as possible to the original concept art.

I worked with Kaitlin Yu on the exterior castle, while Heather Yun and Justin Leong created the interior of the castle, featured in the video. We collaborated on the entire model together, I focused on the bottom half of the castle while Kaitlin focused on the top. To keep textures consistent between the halves I created a pool of rust and wood textures for both of us to pull from. I also created a script for automatic texture connection from Substance Painter to make the texturing process as smooth as possible.

Overall this was a very satisfying project to bring one of my childhood favorite movies to life, and I learned a lot about modeling from concept art!
