The Awesome Mix Vol.1 from The Guardians of The Galaxy
Yes Yes Yes, a bit of fan art this time. I watched The Guardians of the Galaxy yet again a while back, inspiration struck and I had to make the famous C-Cassette from the movie.
My girlfriends' father had old tapes stored away so I was lucky to get a real-world reference for modeling. Of course, no of them were an exact match to the tape from the movie but the basic structure of the tapes are quite similar in all of them.
The tape is transparent, not black?!
Shit, originally I thought the tape is just black, easy peasy but then I looked at the reference photo from the movie and realized that it's actually transparent. Because it's transparent I had to model all the inside stuff too.
