Awesome looking model, drGrim. Executes on your concept very nicely; it's very true to it. It's a pretty clean model (you could certainly optimize it, but you're not worrying about that yet, so I won't complain), but very detailed. It's gonna look really cool once it's all textured and spec mapped. Can't wait!

chris_solo & washka - took your advice about the barrel and played around with it. i resized and lifted the barrel up a little and give him a bigger 'base' where it integrates with the body. added supports at the rear thats attached to his err.. buttcheeks. i think it works kinda well

Puckducker - extra joint.. yeah the legs do look like it's gonna be hard to move. the movement is gonna be awkward. i'll look into that. thanks for pointing that out man

VinsanityV20 & Ichiban - thanks guys for the comments. keeps me fired up to work on it till the end

i'm trying out mudbox since last week. thinking of adding more details using that but i dont think i can learn it quickly enough. the sculpt i did came out really sloppy LOL. i think i'm better off painting the texture and use crazybump for now


well here's an update of the new proportion and barrel ^_^v

Coming along very nicely. I would like to see a little more battle fatigue on him. Like more scratches and or rust. I see you have some on the back leg, but maybe a little more would help sell his bad ass appearance

If I could type the whistle sound that construction workers make when they're hasslin' hot girls, I would - that is one sic looking model already! The blue highlights are a great idea, and overall, even though the texture shown is simple, it is totally working since the model is so damn detailed. Awesome looking machine, just all around. Though SR 6274 has a point - I'd like to see the texture dirtied up a bit. This isn't "Dominance Showroom floor" we're competing in - this is a war; he should look like he's been in one lately He should have blood on his feet and hands from all the demons and people he's squashed At the very least, put some dirt on that texture and see what people think.

My only other criticism is simply that, whenver you put anything on a pedestal, it starts to look like a toy. I believe this thing is supposed to be massive, correct? Is there anyway you can maybe do a blacked out silhouette of a person or something, put that on an alpha map, and attach it to the base - y'know, for size reference? Well, either that or change the camera angle - a "looking up" shot always makes something look bigger, while a eye-level or worse ("looking down") always makes them look smaller.

Remember though, I love the model And yes, I realize these are still just WIP shots. Just trying to think of constructive things to say, since *drool* isn't really one of them

How about a combination of them. I really like the composition of the second one, but maybe the one in the background can be shooting like in the third pic.

Yeah, Sr_6274 is on the right track. The lighting form the third image is really nice, I think using the lighting/shooting idea from the third image, with the pose/layout of the second image [because it shows off the model a little better] would rock.

Nice work, textures came out pretty cool. I like the scale ref on the pedestal, makes him one massive beast of a bot.
