Create a Timeless Holiday Scene With These Festive Favorites

Brad Thorne 3D Modeling, Featured Models

Building a holiday scene, like the season itself, can be chaotic. Whether it’s a snow-covered town or a festive storefront, you need a whole load of assets to recreate the most decorative time of year. Or perhaps you just want some objects to populate an arctic environment. When it came time to highlight our favorite holiday-themed assets from the library, we also picked some that would work for any wintery project.

Take a look!

Winter Passage 3D Model | raffyraffy

Snow-covered landscapes are a fixture of the holiday season. According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, locations across the US from Crater Lake, Oregon to Aspen, Colorado are almost 100% guaranteed a white Christmas every year.

Maybe you don’t want to capture the festive season’s extreme weather at all and just need a realistic setting for your snowbound action sequence, this model has the perfect layout. The only limit to this large mountainous environment is your imagination.
