Art Spotlight: ARGOS - Starship


3D Artist Stéphane Chasseloup shares how he used Blender and Substance Painter to create a starship inspired by Alien: The Eighth Passenger.

Hi, my name is Stéphane Chasseloup, I was born in France but now I live in the Asturias region, located in the north of Spain. I started my career in the world of publishing and advertising, until I discovered the world of 3D software through American and Japanese Art magazines. I saw the potential that these new tools offered, and I began to create my own 3D models through Autodesk’s trial program. Now I am with Blender for modeling and Substance/Photoshop for texturing. These first models were inspired by objects that appeared in science fiction movies, like Stargate, Star Trek, Star Wars, and others.

Today I continue to make models for video games like Rebel Galaxy or EndSpace, and for advertisements like this one; my models can be seen in movies like Cosmic Sin and in my online stores.
