G.I.JOE 25th Anniversary Storm Shadow Model


Here is a model I am currently working on, Cobra Storm Shadow. I was inspired by the new 25th Anniversary G.I.JOE action figures that were released this year. I loved the cartoon back in the 80's and of course the action figures. This is my tribute to the great G.I.JOE series and toys. It is a work in progress. I am done with the base model and currently working on on UV mapping. I plan on taking it into mudbox for the detailing and of course texture.

Hahaha! PERFECT! You'll never need finger articulation! No need to paint weights! How fun! Now THIS is a project you'd never be allowed to do at school!

Are you modeling fron an actual figurine, or from a picture? Does he have holes in under his feet? =)

Stormshadow is the coolest, but yet, he'll never be cooler than SnakeEyes.

Hehehe. Thanks Leo. He actually does have holes under his feet. I modeled this using picture refrence as well as the action figure. I agree with you on Snake Eyes. He is planned for my next model. They are the yin and yang. Can't have one without the other.

Yeah, Snake Eyes is cooler. But storm shadow is a badass too. Awesome work Jaime. Give them both skeletons when you're done and battle away!

Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Yin and Yang. Truer words have never been written until this blog entry. Thank you Jaime. You have touched my heart.
