Art Spotlight: Steam Ops


3D Artist Rafał Szewczyk entered Sketchfab's Low Poly Game Level Challenge and won with his detailed Steam Ops model. Here's how he created it.

Everything around me inspires me. I like to transform every shape and solid that I see into something else more interesting. That’s how it all starts. Of course, there are many amazing artists whose works give the right direction to my mental transformations. I regularly visit their profiles on ArtStation and Sketchfab to feed on their creativity.

In my art, I try not to limit myself to a single style, but what I find the most fun are minimalistic, stylized low-poly models chiseled out from triangles, with complexity reminiscent of computer games from 20 years ago.
