I started with a flat disk with 10 corners, selected every second point and skaled down until i got the star shape. then i extruded the poly to give thickness. then i selected the front and back face and used the spikey tool to devide into triangles.

the tail was a flat box with several subdivisions. first i tapered the end to spread it out then i used the bend tool to bend it down. then i just selected every second point at the end and moved it back to get the desired shape.

all things done afterwards where only pushing points here and there to improve the shape. thats all.


hope this helps you a bit. feel free to use it as such or as a template for your own star. iīm happy if i could help out.

so long,

joy to the world īnīstuff.
:D
