[3D] Porco Rosso – CG Talk Hardcore Modelling Challenge 33

I’m back into the 3D world after almost a 1 year hiatus, joining once again one of CG Talk’s Harcore Modelling Challenges.

The theme for this edition was “Masters of Anime”.

The challenge consisted in modelling a character, vehicle, weapon or diorama based on the work of one of the following anime directors:


  • Tezuka Osamu
  • Shinichiro Watanabe
  • Hayao Miyazaki
  • Masamune Shirow
  • Tatsuo Yoshida
  • Katsuhiro Otomo

I choose Porco Rosso’s flying boat from Hayao Miyazaki’s film of the same name. Later I decided to complete the challenge by modelling an entire diorama.

This is my first important Blender project, it was a great learning experience, I had attempted to use Blender before with no success, until now.

The final scene shows the reconstructed flying boat inside Piccolo S.P.A. workshop:
