Default Screwman

Hello folks,

I've been lost for inspiration recently (hence no posts) but I did manage to drag this little man out of my mind and onto the screen this afternoon.

Making him has given me a couple of ideas for another model, perhaps you will see it come to fruition in the WIP forum later.

Anyway here you go, enjoy,

Mat.

He is really nice!

Just put on a bump map and it's perfect!

the screw head doesnt have a slot for the flat screw driver, its outlined but you need to hollow it out so a screw driver could actually go into the screw head

Ha ha - nice work mat - sorry to hear that you are out of inspiration though. It can be tough sometimes to keep at it.

Whatever happened to your dancing robot? - some robotic dance moves would be ideal for the latest challenge.

Cheers for your thoughts,

Yeah the dancing robot, I was thinking about that the other day arran but I couldn't even motivate myself to open the file!! I'll get round to it at some point!

The texture was just thrown on, a 5 minute job, so I can fully understand why you don't like it Gamestarf. I don't think I'm going to do any more to it though as the model has served it's purpose, to inspire me. Having said that I have raised the bump map a touch for you arneoog and there are now slots in the screws as suggested by Turbo Dan, the original ones were just a bump map (me being lazy I suppose).

I think the reason the textures seem to jump at people is because the wood appears near photo-real (or heading that way) and the screws look like they were vector rendered (or at least cartoon rendered.

Could be right there Xander-O,

I just did a quick FG render on under a white sphere so the screws had nothing to reflect apart from the sphere making them look a little odd. Cheers for the feedback,

take it easy,

Mat.
