I worked through that one too pbman, yay for the blue robot!!

Nice going Masteryoda. As pbman said it is nice that you've added your own details, it'll be nice to see him textured.

Take it easy,

Mat

No I didn't use any tutorials, I heard there is an alias book with a simple tutorial about this robot, i did this model from screen shots from the movie 'Blue'. and added some details.

The book that the tutorial is in is 'Learning Maya 7 Foundation' (retails around £50), I'm not sure if the tutorial's on the internet at all.

What other 3d packages have you used Masteryoda? The models you're producing are way more advanced than those made by someone who has never touched 3D before. It would be cool to see some more of your work.

take it easy,

Mat.

I use only maya 6.5 and render in maya, been using maya for 2 months but this is the second full model with no help from tutorials , for now i'm just modeling rather than texturing and animating, trying to master modeling thats why for now i only place clay renders. I'm using GI Joe to render them. To texture i got a Wacom tablet and use photoshop CS but know only basic skinning.

The robot looks very nice, I like the detail in the hands and the knee joints. I especially like the 2nd render.
How do you clay render with maya software? Is there any tutorial that teaches how to achieve this clean yet natural look? Cause I wanna learn

I rendered the robot with maya software, but used GI Joe for lighting, I downloaded the mel script from highend3d.com
rendered in production quality with importance to the shadows, default lights are turned off to use just the GI Joe lighting and the surface must be ALL Lambert1 and intensity is 3.5. Hope this helped.
