Iván Batalla takes us behind the scenes of his 'Mario Galaxy' scene in this Sketchfab Art Spotlight.
Hi! My name is Iván Batalla, I’m a young 3D Artist from northern Spain. I’m a beginner who discovered Blender around a year ago, and since then I have been modeling almost every day, learning new things with each project and, of course, by following YouTube tutorials. Let’s take a look at my latest model, the Gateway Galaxy from Nintendo’s game “Super Mario Galaxy”.
The idea came to my mind with one of the latest topics of the WeeklyCGChallenge, which was “Tiny Worlds”. At first I wasn’t going to participate, but suddenly, a few days before the deadline, Mario Galaxy came to my mind, and immediately the whole project took form. After looking for some references (mostly from YouTube playthroughs and the game itself), I opened Blender and started it! To keep my inspiration and the overall mood of the game, I played the OST on the background while working. That’s something I always do, as I work better with music.
