Created the game mechanic for the mole. The mole pops up and you can smack it! When you’ve smacked the mole he will be very sad and return to its hole in the ground.
I’ve created this behavior with a class blueprint. Check out this tutorial if you want more information:

Today I’ve imported the mole model into ue4.
Also added a fresnel to make the model look more cartoony and let it pop out a bit more. I really like the material editor from ue4 it works nice and easy.
Next I’ll work on a Blueprint to script the behavior of the mole.

Created a basic mud material, which I’m going to use for the Mole pile. Above a preview of the material in the Unreal Engine.
I used a base texture from cgtextures.com. With it I’ve created a diffuse texture and a normal map.
