Default mtmckinley-March/April (MOD)

Well, I'm in the mood to actually make something, so I'm going to see if I can throw something together in my spare time. Here's an old idea that's been rattling around in the brain:

http://www.mtmckinley.net/work/Steam...unk_robot1.jpg

Still have some sketching to go. The idea is it's a steam-golem. Big furnace in its gut with flames coming out the top. Going to have some steam exhause ports and little guages and wires and such. His arms end in large devices that use mysterious crystals as a means of focusing heat into a type of projectile energy beam.

Hopefully I can find the time for this. I'm liking the idea!

looks like a cool idea man ...

but... can you even get anything out of a comp(seeing as you made the comp) or is this just a test of yourself?

nice idea of having the steam vents around the head and the leg gears will look cool if you animated them
