View Full Version : Buzzy - Dominance

Backstory - Formerly the subject of unmentionable laboratory experiments, this ape has been fused with the advanced weapons technology being developed in the lab around him. Now he is a vicious, brutal killing machine with but one purpose - to unleash painful, sticky vengence on his tormentors.
nice work Buzzy sofar, ;) , btw how many tris it have sofar? I think it must be around 800 or more?! :dunno: if so, I suggest decrease alil more details for your lowpoly model, ofcours if it is your low poly model! otherwise don't mind man! :smug:
btw I like your idea :D hope to see more from you soon :)

Made him a little more badass...a little more gorilla-like
running about 1k so far for the head...maybe a tad heavy but I think I'll manage (I'm an animator by trade so I put alot of value in a solid, expressive face)
And I promise I'll have some concept soon (Before I add any tech stuff)

lookin' cool. robot ape will rip the puny humans apart.
I think you are supposed to be leaving your modeling progress, I am not sure though, but also wouldn't want to have you get DQ'd or something.

Ok, here's a very simple thumbnail sketch....no real legs yet but you get the idea.
And here's what I have of the hi-poly arm so far

This reminds me of "Code Red" from the Techno Spawn series: ( reference 1 (http://www.spawn.com/toys/spawn/series15/codered/images/series15_codered_photo_01_dp.jpg) ) ( reference 2 (http://www.spawn.com/toys/spawn/series15/codered/images/series15_codered_photo_02_dp.jpg) )
It looks like the basic direction your going so it may be a good reference point for you. The hand doesn’t seem designed well for bashing though. I would continue the chain linking all the way to the knuckles and have them be extra large. I would also make the fingers longer and thumb shorter if you’re going for ape proportions. I like how your arm turned out cool design on the fingers.

I've seen Cygor from the Spawn series, and he was kind of my initial inspiration for doing a cyber-ape. But I've never seen Code-Red before...so thanks for pointing that out.
I agree about the hands not having very ape-like proportions. I thought that as well...not sure if I want to change it or not.

Its been slow going the last week or two so this isn't a huge update. But the character is starting to come together.
