A GI Joe Toy Cobra Rattler Modeling for practice. One of the most important things for any artist is practice. Just like athletes in sports, artists need too keep practicing to evolve and develop skills. Here is a step by step journaling for the modeling of a GI-Joe Toy Airplane called Cobra Rattler.
I started this project back in 2017 with Blender 2.79. Had to put it aside for work with clients and have worked on it over the years little by little. The summer of 2019 I had plenty of time to learn Blender 2.8x and tackle this project again.
GI Joe Toy Airplane Model Progress
Here a collection of screen shots for the GI Joe Toy modeling progression. As I get the project evolved I will continue to update this journal with screenshots and videos of the process. Eventually I will 3D print this file for fun, or maybe to sell it?
Here are videos of the process of modeling the GI Joe Toy. As you can notice, the process started with Blender 2.78 and progressed to Blender 2.8 to the point of having to start from scratch at one point. Compatibility issues between 2.78 and 2.8 forced the restart of the project at a point where the reference blueprints did not make much sense and had to replace them.
