Default Red Terror (Star Wars robot)

Well, here I am, back at it again after many many months of no modeling at all. I found a neat droid to model from the "Star Wars Essential Guide to Droids" book I have. Making conceptual drawings into 3D is probably what I like to do the most.

Time taken: 7 hours.
Modeled all in polygons.
Concept art by Bill Hughes and schematics by Troy Vigil.

and no..... I don't plan to texture it. At least not any time soon.

lol. Well, I don't know if I even can because I don't know what it's supposed to look like really. The conceptual drawing was only a pencil version and google doesn't have any pictures of it, so I'm out of luck. I suppose I could texture it how I think it might look, but meh..... the second I do that, someone will stick what it's really supposed to look like up somewhere. =P

Here's a question though: I'd like to take a picture of the conceptual drawing so you all can see the comparison from pencil to 3D, but I don't know if it's legal to do that because I had to pay for the book it's from. Does anyone know if I'm allowed to do this?

Thankyou Ankalagon. I will probably not texture it because I don't know what the texture is supposed to look like. I rarely animate in the first place, so if and when I do animate something, I would probably want to animate something that is textured, so this droid will probably just stay as it is right now.

I have been working with Maya for a year and 7 months so far I believe, so not that long really. I should have more stuff completed for my website, but I don't have enough time unfortunately. And me working in a studio? lol not quite... I'm only 18 years old. I hope to work for a studio one day though or some kind of company that creates video games or special effects or something.

thanks for the comments though. You are too kind.
