Quite some time ago I created the robot I've used as my avatar in Rhino (v1). Recently, after backing up some old hard drives I found all of my source meshes for this character and decided he needed an overhaul, so I'm rebuilding him from scratch using my old model as reference.

Here are a couple shots of him way back in 2002:

And here's the head I've finished, updates to follow. Modelled and rendered in max7.

Im just curious (for the old model) did you export to max to render the cartoon like picture?

Yeah I think this was before flamingo or penguin were available; either way I was already comfortable with max. Iirc, they were rendered with fR-0 and fT respectively. I exported all the parts to iges and rigged in max...r4 maybe?

edit: small update, just experimenting with some options for the spine and came up with this so far.

Looking very cool. It kind of reminds me of an Elite from the Halo games.

I can't wait to see where this goes :thumbsup:
