View Full Version : SMC M#04 - AndrewQ - Solar Ice Blaster

For this contest I wanted to do a Ratchet and Clank style weapon: Totally ridiculous and really terrible physics that only work when you aren't looking too closely.
So the way this device works is the user collects light (palm up), the glove stores the power, and allows the user to "drill" through the ice, Hadoken style.
not sure if concept counts in the time limit, but I spent about 1 hr on drawings and 45 mins in maya so far.

oh yeah, anybody know a quick, clean way to punch holes in a poly face? For example, the holes the buttons would be sitting in on the control panel. The way I usually do it takes forever.

There's actually quite a few "clean" ways to go about this rather than going for the boolean. Here's two ways below, I haven't got time to do anymore this were knocked up quickly while I had a few mins free. I'm sure other Maya using members can help you especially who'll know your software as it's better that the method is specific to your software of choice as I only know how to do this within Cinema 4D :)
Method 01 - Starting with a disc
Method 02 - Starting with a plane
for maya i have found CG method nr1 is the best. then after that use an animation deformer to make it into the shape u need.
the design remind me of Ironman. weeee !!

Thanks for the tips! Definitely faster than how I was going to do it.

clay and beauty shots. I didn't get to resolver the wrist or how the button pad attaches to the throttle. I will comp all this stuff together tomorrow, but for now sleep.
haha that looks sweet, though i think it may be more convenient if the buttons were on the glove itself rather than a separate remote

looking good, too thin for a hand to fit in, especially @ the part of the console dashboard that's wrapped around the glove.
for some reason the handle on the glove makes me smile, almost look like an accelerator for a bike of something like that.

I sure wouldn't want to shake hands with that!

sarn: yeah the remote was going to be more of an inset panel, ran out of time.
rocneatsa: yeah agreed. I exaggerated the extrusion way too much.
begn: Yeah I was thinking you have to rev up the glove to build up energy
alfonzoaqui: me neither!
