A tribute to Nintendo for entertaining me up to present day. Started as a modelling excersise and ended up being a very informative venture into realistic 3d lighting techniques etc. This image was used in Anne Powers excellent book: Cinema4d: the artists project sourcebook.

Nintendo's Wii was a bit dissapointing for me and many oldschoolers but I do still admire their push for innovation, they pretty much single handedly designed 95% of todays game controllers. Even PS Move and XBox Kinnect are a direct result of the Wii's new motion controlls.

Go Nintendo!


i played all but n64, gameboy color, and the console on the nintendo. the nintendo, gamecube, and the gameboy advance i played. gamecube dont have other two still have with me :D

Is this a photo, but, who cares? Nintendo is awesome!

One of my favorite companies with some of the best games.
So far I own a Gameboy and this picture is enough motivation to get out and ge the rest of the best retro game systems known to mankind.

wow, I was about to comment on why this was in the 3D art category - I thought it was a photo.
then I read the description and took a closer look. the only thing I can see that tells me this is indeed a 3D modelling work is that gamecube controller. I'm no expert, so I don't expect to be right, but It just seems to me like its light source is slightly skewed from the rest of the consoles/controllers.

apart from that possibly baseless opinion, flawless and epic.


Great work! Kinda sad, that the glorious times of these consoles are over...
All were part of my childhood.
