Gordo's Island in 3D!

Hey IITS Readers and Various Peoples,

I've been juggling various projects and trying to keep them afloat so I apologize for the lack of updates but I got a neat little treat for you today. My friend and ex-coworker, Alex Mathis, just recently sent me some screenshots of the model of Gordo's Island I contracted him to do for Project IITS. He said it's not done yet (artists, feh!) but it certainly is nice enough to show here. Enjoy!

P.S. The original concept is here.

  1. Looks like a great bonus level for a Super Mario Galaxy 3. LOL!
    But yeah, these look extremely presentable. If this is what he considers "not done" I'm really anxious to see the final product.

  2. Thanks, Malcolm.

    Alex is a super talented artist and I can't wait to see his "polished" version either. =)

  3. OMG!!!! This looks awesome! It totally reminds me of Sky's of Arcadia! Really beautiful and vivid~ Can't wait to see more!

  4. Hey Hamasuki!

    Good to see you on here! Glad you liked the island and hopefully we'll see a Skies of Arcadia sequel someday...

  5. That looks so amazing! I want to BE there! I love the colors and the stylization! Awesome!! <3

  6. Hello SarBear,

    I'm glad you liked the island. When I requested the original concept, I asked the artist to include all sorts of nooks and crannies that spark the imagination. In fact, I specifically said, "Design someplace you'd want to live...imagine yourself on the if it were your home," or something like that. Both Cecilia (the concept artist) and Alex (the 3D modeler) appear to have done their work really well. =)
