Art director Julien Rivoire is completely self-taught and likes to spend his free time creating 3D models. Recently, he decided to take retro technology, such as the Tiger Electronics handheld games from the 80s / 90s, and add some modern day flair to them, or Netflix to be more specific. If this should ever catch on, we’d imagine Stranger Things, Black Mirror, and Orange is the New Black, all getting their own handheld games. Read more for additional pictures and information.
How did he create the portable Winamp music player above? First, it was modeled in Autodesk Fusion 360, based on screenshots of the original player, and then 2D sketches were created. Next, the sketches were extruded to create each part of the player – body, buttons, faders, etc. – before textures were added using Photoshop. Once the 3D model was completed, the images were rendered using Cinema 4D and Redshift.
