Default My Concept Robot

Hi all I'm trying to do my first concept robot I had drew this concept art in about three days and i will be working on the 3D model through the upcoming couple of months that because i'm working 8 hours per day as a 3D renderer so i will work about 3 hours per day on this project ........ it will be a really hard model i know

BTW Zeid is my name :bandit:

Will it be animated? I'm curious to see how you will handle the eyes seeing as how its metal but it looks like it has folds around the eyes.

Good luck, i suggest you do turnarounds, pose sheets etc. What is the end product of your labour? animation?

I feel the design could do with some work still, it seems over complicated while the sillhouete and forms could be progressed.

I don't plan to animate it because i'm not a proffesional animator to animate a complicated model like this ... i'm only trying to do a serious still image .

wholly crap that is dense hehe

why smooth it now?

you should block out your model before you go into details so then you can get all the proportions right

The concept art looks great and so far it is looking spot on.

Keep up the great work and looking forward to seeing updates.

the model looks good so far...

i think the top of the legs look a little weak to be able to support the body. The arms also look a little weak, like they are kind of dangling off the body.
