3D playground


It was around 1995 when I got my 4-year old hands on a Nintendo NES with Super Mario Bros. I got hooked instantly and started playing a lot of different games. This sparked a deep fascination for visuals and design.

Fast-forwarding 20 years, I was still wondering how they made 3D games. One evening I decided to try out Cinema4D, and I’ve been playing with it ever since.
