Here is a drone ive been working on for about a week, ive got all th insides done and i need a lil afvice on how to do the legs, and somethings to finish out the machinary...

Here is the concepts used:
This one I know is by http://www.khangle.net/ Khang Le

This one I think is done by the same person or by this guy (name unkown http://perso.wanadoo.fr/arth/home.htm

I also got inspiration many years ago : maybe 2 from david wilson and his Seth robot great peice found here (explore his site if you havent been their already!)http://www.3dluvr.com/davewilson/makingof/seth/MakingOfSeth.htm (http://www.3dluvr.com/davewilson/makingof/seth/MakingOfSeth.htm)

----------ANYWAYS-----------
Here is my stuff

The last two pictures illustrate the pistons that make the minigun move and eventually swivel (the minigun does not clear the exoskeleton in its rest position)
----------Questions -----------

Any ideas for add ons to the shell - i want to put a flame thrower on one side (the oppisite side of the ammo belt)

I need leg designs - I like stoky alien looking legs but with lots of machinary showing and pistons - plus with lots of mass I was thinking of someting kindof original but its hard to explain ill peice it out and post it later on tonight

ANYTHING THAT U FEEL JUST WRITE IT DOWN AND SEND IT IN; CRIT WILL ONLY MAKE THIS THING BETTER I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO TELL ME WHAT IS BAD/WRONG WITH THIS NOT JUST THAT IT LOOKS GOOD - THAT DOESNT HELP ANYONE

you should probably work on the body of the drone first, then worry about the weapons. weapons are nothing without something to use them.

This weapon looks so powerful and realistic. I was wondering what program you used to create it and how long it took you to create it. But i do agree with one of the other replies, you should start on the body of the character, cause weapons can always be changed or switched out of.

Just to clarify those drawings are not mine but of the above mentioned artists

[Sp3ctre] I figured that i would designs the weapons and the body kind of together......although most of the body is done now; i just need to add small details.

I will not add anymore exterior armor plating unless i can find a way for it not to cover up to much machineray and it must also be functionable (move along with some other peice). I thinbk exoskins are used as a cop out; as to not have to model the insides of a mech...plus it would cover up all the work ive already done

P.S what is the most convient way to get a screen grab of my max viewport as required to post in this forum??

Here is a picture of some detailes ive been adding, thease wires connect to a component of the flame thrower

and here is a link to a movie illustrating the way the minigun moves up and down and how the barrel spins [10mb] http://www.m24designs.com/pic/mino%20gun%20test.mov

Detailed stuffs u got. As for screen grab, just press the printscreen button on your keyboard, open an image editor & paste. Should be the easiest i suppose.
