I had the opportunity to work on several locations throughout Ghost of Tsushima. It's a team effort, so of course most of these areas are touched and worked on by various other artists and designers as well. It's been an incredible project and I'm really proud of the work our team has done!

I built out the space on top of the peak for the Heavenly Slash mission. I also made the white trees. Blake Mead did a lot of work around this area too.

I built out a couple of the duel locations in Toyotama, one along the shore of Akashima within a ring of driftwood, and the other in the fields of red spider lilies. The driftwood and red flower assets were made by TJ Halter.

I helped dress up a lot of the haiku locations, including the cliff waterfall location in Azamo. I worked on the rock and foliage dressing. Tyler Smith had also done a lot of work here. Much of the ivy I used was made by Douglas Davis.

I cleaned up and did a lot of the foliage set dressing around Castle Kaneda. I placed the trees around the area to get interesting silhouettes, and added ivy to some of the cliff faces. I worked with Mak Malovic who was mostly in charge of this area. He also built out the castle structures. Neil Pascarella did work on the bridges. And again, the ivy assets were made by Douglas Davis. The pine trees were made by Lisa Liao.
