Artist feature - Marcin Wodzynski

11

Dropping by BlenderArtists, I noticed some of the featured artwork and decided to check it out.  Here are three works by Marcin Wodzynski (Marcin.)  I also did an interview with him.  Thanks, Marcin!

BlenderNation: How long have you been using Blender?
Marcin: 4 years, (but this is not exactly what I remember.)

BN: What got you interested in Blender?
Marcin: I was looking for such a program which would have a minimum size, would work on weak hardware (I have a laptop), and at the same time be able to do simple 3d games. I found Blender. Over time, the graphics started to interest me more and I became even more interested in 3D animation and game art.

Abandoned Warszawa M20

BN: How long did it take you to make Old Fence, Abandoned Warszawa M20, and Diamonds?
Marcin: Abandoned Warszawa M20 - the high poly version was done in about a month. That is to say: modeling, unwrap and texture creation. A low poly took a week and went pretty quickly for modeling, unwrap, bake, and minor changes to the textures.

Old Fence

Old Fence

Old Fence - the work took about two and a half weeks. It was the most difficult to model and the grass was pretty realistic. Another post-production project was in the style of old photographs.  It was done in a realistic way to reproduce the passage of time and the style of the pictures in those days - in the year of 1919.

Diamonds

Diamonds

Diamonds was the fastest work I did.  I spent three days on it.  For the spillage of diamonds I used Blender GE engine.

  1. Impressive artworks! Wodzumarcin is truly one of the most talented Blender users in Poland! Nice to see that he has been noticed abroad!

    Good luck!

  2. I was checking this out when he posted the final up at blender artist. Excellent work, also thanks for doing the interview, I would love to see more interviews with artist and developers from our community. As a newbie to the world of 3D I find it very helpful to get information about how long some of these beautiful works of art took to create and how long they have been at this craft. Great work and cool interview.

  3. @Leemstradamus: Great! Thanks for the feedback. Yes, it would be neat to do more artist features. Have any artists in mind? :)
