I'm liking the robot too. I agree with M_Cederstrom tho, his design could use some more in the silhouette. Nice start tho, good luck.

Okay. so i merged the two, this beast has a nice big minigun/chaingun underneath, and a huge set of rocket launchers on its side.



Cheers for the crits again

It's looking good. just one thing is bothering me, the legs seem to be "fragile" and too skinny for the massive body and feet. imo the legs and joints should be more robust

Okay, cheers. Ill probably bulk it up some more, just trying to get the height of the thing to be really tall. So in fact you could probably fit three people in the space of one of those toes :P

you could use a reinforcement, like hydrolic pistons and hoses or something like that. you dont change the structure, but change the silhouette ( and will look more bulky)

bit of a cross between mechwarrior and the alien robot in Monsters VS Aliens...that new movie from Dreamworks I think it is.

Nice work, looking forward to see what you do with the texture.
