This course will look at the fundamentals of rendering in Arnold. We'll go through the different light types available, cameras, shaders, Arnold's render settings and finally how to split an image into render passes (AOV's), before we then reassemble it i

Robot modelling :) (I'm back)

I had a rest from maya user added image but now that I'm back. I'm making a robot user added image this time. I sketched him yesterday but hes familiar so I dont want to say hes my design, I thought about him and sketched what i remembered from when i saw him. I saw him on a site but anyways. I'm modelling him user added image If anyone ever met this guy on the net I would like to know who designed him so I give credit user added image Heres the head modelled

Looks a bit like the little robot from the film of hitchhikers guide to the galaxy? He does look very familiar but i'm not positive from where.

Good start anyway! And welcome back user added image

i can't help but feel that with as squat as your character is, either his arms are too long or his legs aren't long enough... cause if he puts his arms down he's gonna have gorilla-syndrome (arms dragging on the floor, or close to it, anyway) or maybe his head is too big. i dunno, but there's something off proportionally.


i do like the simplicity of the model, though. looks good, and feels like it belongs like that - it's not forced.


Accept no substitutions.

I actually like his short torso - I think it works really well with the big head - sort of like a baby robot, if you know what I mean. Not so sure about the upper arms - for me, the shape used doesn't really fit with the rest of the shapes that you have used.

He sort of reminds me of blue from the foundation books and as others have mentioned, marvin from the hitchhikers guide...
