Speed Model Project: Blaster Master Tank

This is a speed modeling video I created of me building and rendering the tank from Blaster Master, the old NES game. The full project took about 6.5 hours to complete, over the course of about a week.

Here’s a Sketchfab link, in case you want to see it in 3D:

And you can see this image at the end of the video, but here’s what the final render looked like:


As noted in the video, the design is based on an illustration by Arne Niklas Jansson. I was introduced to his work by a friend some time ago, and I find it fascinating, and a good source for inspiration. You should check out his website.

This render also used an HDR lightmap from HDRLabs.
