Ferrre Poorkazem created Jerry Seinfeld's kitchen in Blender. In this Art Spotlight she tells us how she did it.
Hello! My name is Fereshte Poorkazem (Ferre is my nickname). I’m a game artist and freelancer currently living in Tehran, Iran. I started my career as a 2D artist in indie game companies in my country about 5 years ago and then later decided to make a game of my own.
As a child I always liked to paint the rooms of a house and fill them with furniture and it was like a game for me. A few months ago I saw an isometric 3D model of a room and this was the biggest inspiration for me to start to learn 3D modeling. I chose Blender because it’s free and also there are lots of beneficial add-ons available for it. After watching a few tutorials and getting to learn the software I decided to start a project for myself to see how much I have learnt from what I’ve seen in those tutorials. I was watching the Seinfeld series at the time and I always wanted to pause the video and look more carefully at all those details used in the decoration. That’s why I chose Jerry Seinfeld’s kitchen as my first project to start 3D modeling and it was a good choice because it’s made of simple forms and geometries and colorful textures that can be presented in a low poly model.
