Default March Challenge - GateKeeper - Noobie

Okay I don't have a lot of time and I have only the faintest idea about what to do but... I'm in!

I'm thinking automated Hovertank. Something sleek and not too complicated...

I'll try to put up a bit of preliminary modeling once I get the basic design laid out. I would put up some concept art but I know less about Drawing than I do about Maya!

Sounds like a good idea, , now we need some sketches, or the start of a model! Could be great if done right .

Default First Wireframe

Okay here it goes. I've finally decided on a tank drone. Basically an automated war machine.

This is the wireframe of the forward section. I need to add the sensor array's, maybe some light(s), maybe a fixed forward weapons array of some sort or a set of articulated hands I'm not sure, and the forward thruster.

comments and suggestions most welcome...

I have the basic shape in mind as well as a couple of doodles for the design. Mostly I've been listening to music (listening to music always helps jog my imagination) and adding/subtracting from the planned final look of the model as it grows.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'll try to get more up ASAP!

Default Nother wire

Hello all,

I don't have much of an update but I'll post it anyway. I've been so swamped with school that I havent had much time to devote to this competition Anyway I started the basic shape of the rear unit that the drone will be pulling along. The drone itself isn't finished but I think I'll add to it all once the basic shape is complete.

:mingun:

Somehow I have managed to corrupt my maya .mb file. Everything I've worked on has been trashed. I'm sorry guys but I think I'm going to sit this one out. I am withdrawing from the competition.

Good luck guys.

Aw come on

Don't you save in different files

On the other hand, doing a LOT of thing isn't fun.
