A quick sketchup idea of the area you to begin at, a long simple winding path leading to the stairs that will lead you to house exterior. You can see assets i definitely want to include in this section. Trees, wooden plank path, lanterns, swamp water, swamp plants. Extras i might want to include might be a couple of wider checkpoints in between to break up the path and contain a few different assets.
I will try to paint over this to bring out the flat areas and give a better view of my intended outcome.
