Default Jr.Who - W.I.P. - Assault Mech

Hey guys,

I just got back from my weekend vacation yesterday. This is my first W.I.P. that Iíve put up on this site. For a while, Iím just going to put up screen grabs, but when I get to texturing, Iíll be doing some good renders.

Iíve been working on it for about 2 hours.

Thanks, jsprogg. Iím trying to keep it as tidy as I can, without getting too far from what Kurtís doing (because if Iím having the same problems as him, I want to know how to fix that problem).

I forgot to say that 10-15 minutes of that time is watching the tutorial (because of the amazing fast-forward button in QT ).

I spent about 25 minutes on my own, and then 50 with the tut, so about an hour and 15 minutes total today.

I still have a little work to do with the mesh, and I have to add a lot more things (after the last part of the tut) to it.

Thanks. Iím actually going quite slow! Iíve been busy this week, so I couldnít do as much as I wanted to.

Thanks. Iím hoping that when Iím done modeling it, there will be a ton more detail to it. Thereís also texturingÖÖ

Anyway, IĎve been working on it really slow today (being a Sunday and football season just started :p ). Iím going to try to get it all finished up tomorrow, so I can post the HD render on my site.

Well, I got about 30 minutes done yesterday, and about 2 and a half hours done today. Most of what I did today was messing around with the mesh, going back, and forth, seeing which looks better. Iíve still got a little bit of work to do on it, and Iíll finish it all up tomorrow.

Thanks, marlonjohn!

The poly count is at 24674 faces right now. Yesterday when I did that edge work, I tried to get rid of as many as I could.

Today Iím going to try finishing it up by working on the mesh of the main guns, and Iím going to try to create 1 or 2 other weapons. I might do some other work on the mesh, but I donít know.

OK, I spent about 3 more hours on it today, cleaning up the mesh on the main gun, and creating 2 other weapons (the missile launcher on top and the gatling guns). Itís at 35206 faces now.

Now, I just have to set it up for a render, smooth everything out, and render it!
