Our tutors picked SpaceWhale for us to create in UDK this semester. My role is to make the main character (the Space Whale) which includes design work, modelling, rigging, animation and texturing.
I am also in charge of making the background for the level. I will do this by firstly creating a space background. Then, I will make lots of layers of stars and nebula, and layer them in UDK. I will then make a few galaxies for the environment.
UPDATE: Here are screenshot from the game, as well as images of my work.
