Screenshot art

Recommended Posts

So, I was working on another screenshot where the subject is a 109 having it's guns harmonized by the armourers on the ground with the cowlings off. I needed a 3/4 view of the MG-17 nose guns but couldn't find a satisfactory image. This is the raw inspiration image.



I thought that it couldn't be too hard to do a 3D model of the guns, that way I could rotate it to whatever angle I needed and take a screenshot to use in Photoshop... yeah, how hard could it be...  🙄

I downloaded Blender and started checking Youtube tutorials... but Blender just changed from 2.7 to 2.8 and lots of the tools and shortcuts have been changed so any of the earlier tutorials were confusing... I'm slowly getting a handle on it though and really enjoying the process. Here's what I have after a couple of weeks of head scratching:


Still have a long way to go though.

Anyone here have Blender experience?

Not that blender 😀,

I tried to look up the registration number. Failed. Data is lost.

I found this nice row below, but it stops after BL+IP, no IQ. Next one is a IY Seibel. I would assume that the IQ is aG2 with the WNr. 14230.
