Hey Guys!

It's been a while since my last post but now I'm back wantin' to show u my finished Smalbot. I've posted a WIP version 3 or 4 months ago so some of u might remember...or not ;)
I was inspired by a painting of Wiro for this little guy. I think he's finished and it's time to give him some "background"...so stay tuned :D

BTW: I'm very interested in what u guys think about my Smalbot.

Thanx
The hands took most of the modeling time. I had never expected that hands would be so hard to model. I started x-times and the results always su** ;) But in the end...
I'm not sure if I'm going to animate him. My plans are to make some funny stils but maybe...

That's a tight model, I like it alot! I must have seen your last post or the Wiro painting because he looks familiar, Great stuff! The hands do kick ass!

let him sit on his own remote control or better let him climb on the remote controls antenna and then look like christoph columbus who found the new world :)
holding himself on the antenna top with just one hand and one foot with the other hand placed on top of his eyebrows :D

heeey nice droid. How'd you make him? Have you got any wire fremes? This is exactly the kind of thing I've been thinking about making recently, so I'd love to learn more.

@Spike

I used the SubD Method (LowPoly+Meshsmooth) for the Body and other metalic parts. The rest of the Parts is made by editing Max standard primitives.

btw: Trust me...it's quite difficult to model non organic parts with a method normaly prefered for organic medeling ;)

Protecta, it would be better if you tell in the forum where did you get the inspiration for this model.
Your model is HIGHLY "inspired" by a drawing of Arild Wiro (www.secondreality.ch). You can see the drawing here:

Some time ago, I wanted to model this robot, and I asked the author for it. So....
