*LATEST UPDATE*

Finals














Turnaround Video:

360 Turn around

4-26

Sitting at 9999 tris





4-18 HIGH POLY:







Hello everyone!

Lukavi has turned me to the 3DT side this year, and I bring robots!

I'm going to be doing a war machine, with the intention of creating a controller who has infected the machine, which I'll be exploring some ideas on presenting that through either some of the negative space or through material breakup throughout the mesh. I am joining a little late so I've kind of jumped on this and am figuring out some of the design and style guide as I go, which is coming along decently I think.

I whipped up a blockout and silhouettes late last week of my guy and started making/exploring some of the high this weekend:

[Blockout/silhouettes]



Leg start!

[High wire/messing with some presentation ideas]





[Color/material breakup exploration, not final]



Update 4-08

Hey thanks guys! Here's an update before bed.. can't stay up 'till the AM again tonight so just an update to show more of what direction the legs are heading into, tweaked a few things to the lower legs. Hip area and wings are coming, jumping around a little to explore those connection areas.

So you work at Bungie I take it? Awesome.

Being the poor college student that I am, I feel so privileged to be competing alongside all these professionals.

I think you should tone down on the spikes, esp. on the thighs. They don't match the feet, which look great by the way. I'd keep it more simple, less noisy. are those going to be wings in the back?

X convict looks great! awsome details. But Its almost getting a bit messy with all the detail only my humble opinion though :P will the controller in the cockpit be a organic creature?

Looks really great, the only thing Im bugged about is the legs seams a bit to wide apart.
The modelling looks super and I really like the stuff going on on his back, looks really wild.
GReat work.
