View Full Version : Anti-Tank Droid
02-17-2006, 05:55 AM
Concept created by Hideyoshi Ruwwa.
Started this project to learn texturing and all the good stuff i've been avoiding....
and another render is on the way...
Crits and comments welcome.

and the render.

Was able to fit a bit more time into the model....
Model sits at roughly 45,000 polys
Scene sits at roughly 135,000 polys
All i have left to do is the legs and then onto textures.

And the droid is finally finished.....

the reason no-one has commented, is probably due to the fact you have not shown any UV's, texturing or in progress modelling shots?
Forget the render.
UV map it
post WIP of those stages..
THEN render it nicely ;)
To be brutally frank, I don't think the concept you picked is that conducive to creating a great final image.. (all imho)
I think it shows that you can use the lathe tool though :D
Better to design your own mate. (again- imho ;) )
HOWEVER; if you are 100% set on going for an 'in-situ' render of this other guy's concept, then do a tank/diorama concept yourself incorporating the droid, and compose a shot to show the droid in action attacking said tank?

i like it :O
design is great, and looks good as well :)
gonna make a tank and a scene for it as well?

As i said i was gonna texture it once all the modeling is done. As it is done now i will begin texturing sometime next week.
Texturing is not my strong suit in 3d. Modeling is by far the easiest for me.
And i haven't used lathe on this model at all. All manually done within LW.
The reason why i haven't posted any progress shots is because i'm not too familiar with cgtalks images attachment size. It's too small (I know it's so the servers dont get congested)
And as for the scene that is to come later once everything is sorted out.
Modeling is a hobby, i dont have it as a job so i dont have time to whip out scene after scene.
@Chris - thanks mate, yup i plan to do something of the sort.
And some closeup wireshots...Some parts are not perfect as the renders will never get close it.

Your initial post didnt make that clear...
So are you aiming to put together a full scenario for it?
(attacking a tank for instance?)
that would be rather cool ;)

i hope i can achieve what i have in my mind...and that is the Droid attacking a tank (Or a few of them attacking couple of tanks) Still thinking about how to do it all...but that's all to come sooner or later...
And here is the last Clay render with all the poses as is on the concept image
