Lightbulb 0202742 - Dominance wars II

This is my first concept drawing for my Dominance Wars II piece, it is very much a work in progress and is drawn for the purpose of demonstrating the general idea for the model and will be subject to change with a lot of small details changed. The name of my creation is Apocalypse Angel or AA-Version 2.6 (AA-V2.6). The anatomy is made out of wire like muscle groups, hence the colour choice (not designed to look like camoflage). It uses many different types of armament the main 3 weapons in its arsenal are a Sniper gunarm for quick assasinations of enemy threats from far up high in the sky, a missile lauching gunarm for larger targets and a head mounted machinegun for rapid fire, both gunarms also have mini machine guns and powerfists at the end of them. So AA-V2.6 could litteraly pick up an enemy by the head and then shoot straight through it. As a nice little extra touch AA-V2.6 also has chemical weapon/radiation emmitors on its back for mass homocide of all that breathes.

First 3d W.I.P. images

This is how the high res version of my mesh is getting on. I have chosen the process of making a high res mesh first for normal mapping onto the low res mesh, which i will then create by just removing unimportant lines used for creating a quad only mesh (which i find useful for transfering between software packages) after i unwrap the high res. In order to retain the same mapping coardinates for both meshes. The vertices overlap in the middle of the leg but i will fix this later maybe after i rig it. I am not sure yet how i will join the leg just below the knee to the more mechanical looking top of the robotic chicken leg, so if anyone has any ideas about how to make the organic-robotic connection look good please let me know. At the moment the only design i can think off is overlapping the robotics on top of the organic. I would like to weave the two together some how. Later on i will take this model into Zbrush and make the wires look more like muscle strands.

it's looking awesome but I would keep the 20% flesh rule in mind before continuing on, unless I misread something.

Flesh

Having talked to Big Toe about that he gave me the go ahead as there will be no actual flesh just coloured wires that are designed in the shape of flesh. I will render an image soon using procedurals to demonstrate how the colouring will give it a wire like look, also i will render out a wireframe.

Colour scheme (in process)

Here is a visualisation for how i imagine the colour scheme will look. At the moment it is without a meshsmooth made with procedurals.

Wireframe

This is the wireframe renders for the back and front of the model. The areas that i am working on still have a few tris but i aim to change that.
