Talking Iron Man - Low Poly - Dae

got rather bored at work so I figured I need to do something.

not done much at the moment, colours are just so I see see the different parts.
As I continue I will try keep all the main parts of armour as individual bits, as for detail who knows (will try keep it below 12K in polys) we will see how much free time I have during work.

I am not working from any one peice of reference, I kinda enjoy going at it with my minds eye

Looks good, think that if your counting the polys you could reduse the circular bits on the hips and still get the same results.

Talking update

did his arms today, still needs abit of tweaking but I am happy with the overall shape, also put some sections into the abs just to help pop em out also I put steps into the spinal bit. I added a few screws as positionals and added repulsers into his hands which still need working on.

All in all 5364 tris atm. you can see all the images HERE

Nice work!

I agree with Chirone though. the heads needs to be bigger. Plus it looks oddly extended out the back. But that could just be the angle.

Nice work!

looks really cool dae. what's the blue cone in his chest and arms - is that for the light?

one thing that look odd to me is the angle of the fingers - with three of them almost pointing in the same direction and the knuckles which look a little crunched.

other than that, i like the design - it's looking cool.

So I gots a question cause im clueless about maya lol but ummm are the cones coming from his palms and his chest transparent and light blue so as to give off sort of an ambience effect? it seemed like an interesting way to do lighting without lights or maybe im wrong lol

right now the model is sitting at ▒9K in tris
and yes the light will be a white with cyan tinted edges (kinda think white is a tad boring), but that will come at the texturing stage.

As for the glow/light beam I would say that they are more of an FX rather than lighting. I guess this method would be more suited to older game engines (don't take my word on that).
Also this way I can see it in my workspace rather than having to render it out all the time.
