Really nice. Looking forward to this one. I myself was thinking about making a robot from Star Wars since I have been playing Battlefront a lot lately.

Dude

even the best shaders can look crap if they are not lit properly. Try one by yourself, dont rely on somebody elses one this time. Nice work so far though

Its too reflective for a Droideka, sorry dude, if ya gonna do Star Wars it needs to be correct, Im a huge fan of the saga, I collect all the stuff from the movies so...

Nice modelling though, keep going
