Hi guys glad to be representing you for dominance war. Long time follower.

Here is one of my first ideas for a scout.
did a quick sketch in zbrush.
I'll get back to you when my form is nailed down more.

Interesting shape going so far. For a scout, he looks like he is a little heavy and not too quiet, but maybe your not going for that kind of scout

ok heres a little update.

-decided to move the legs to the top of the body
-the plate on the bottom is where the robot will partially land
-I'll have to show you guys a jump path of how the machine will move... cause its kinda complicated
-All of the lower pieces will fold into the "thigh" part of the leg.
-keep in mind that the dark gray parts on the body will be partially delete, to make the robot look more fragile and light.
-arms will still be used but they will fold out of the lower half of the body.

-open for any new ideas or crits
do you guys think the head fits with the rest of the body?? had a little trouble with it.

Your rapid transition from "dirty lump of Z-jelly" to "intricate, futuristic machine" is stunning. It'd be great to see you keep up this pace, but don't get burned out too early! ^__^

Ooh, updates just look better and better. I'd try not to get too bogged down with colour right now (the red and blue don't really go well together), just concentrate on getting everything to look good with one flat shader.

I almost feel like this guy needs two small "front" legs in front him, making him a quadruped. Looking very cool regardless though.

yeah, good idea. The center plate on the bottom acts as a third leg. It is where the robot partially lands when jumping. As it is primarily a jumping robot.

Interesting idea and well modeled. Perhaps you could choose a different color-scheme? Everything else looks great...

Edit: ^^ this was ment to be posted just after the last picture... Seems as if I'm too slow.

I would increase his foot size, right now he's looking a little top heavy and precarious. I think, especially since he's a jumping robot with only two legs, a wider base will make him look more stable and just give him a stronger look. Other than that you've got a sweet looking robot. Can't wait to see it's progress

alright ditching the last attempt at legs. Felt they didn't fit with the rest of the body. Heres the start of the new ones. Starting to get a little on the heavy side though.

I can't imagine how the new legs/feet work... perhaps you can help me with a little illustration?

good good. I was wondering if people might have trouble identifing that. The biggest thing is making sure people can understand that its a jumping robot by looking at it.
