Art Spotlight: Go on Vacation!


This gorgeous low poly scene was created in Blender. Gregory gives us a look behind the scenes.

My name is Gregory and I am a PhD from Russia. I teach biology at the university, so computer graphics is my hobby. My first computer was a Vector-06C, which worked on the magnetic tape. When I was a child, I used to draw on this computer, mostly pictures of small dinosaurs.

In school I became interested in 3D. I was attracted by the opportunity to look beyond the picture to see the back side of it, just pick up and rotate the model. Also, always attracted by photorealism in 3d (this project is obviously not the case :)).

When I discovered Sketchfab, it was something new for me. I wanted to make some kind of model or miniature and upload it there. I want to watch, rotate the model right in the browser. I especially like how it looks on your smartphone, all these little parts begin to move, rotate right under my fingers :). Some natural curiosity makes you to do things like that.

“Go on vacation!” is a small personal project, the sketch. This is my first work in this gallery and I am delighted and pleasantly surprised that many people liked it so much.
