I'm thinking of going for a neo 'steampunk' style, with the mono cycle propelled by steam and whatnot.

Here's a super quick doodle of the general concept.

Started some exploratory modeling. Might go with this, might try something else.

Wow that is an incredibly huge monowheel. Think you'll be needing smaller threads than that :)

Been a little busy at work, but tried to block out some additional stuff.

Did some additional modeling. Also adjusted overall scale to something alot larger. Going for real huge behemoths.

probably 'road race' like. Can't see these guys going around in circles and loop de loops :D

Updated modeling. Added double the pistons and camshaft. ALso added secondary booster jets, though primary locomotion is provided by steam. Redid some other stuff. Hope to start on the cab here real soon. Then on to texturing and rigging.

Sweet man. That railing really helps bring in a sense of scale, something that I think was missing before. Looking forward to your progress :)

I got bored with modeling, so decided to start some rigging. Its pretty rough, but I've never rigged anything of any consequence.

Rendered out a turntable animation the other day and noticed that my camera path didn't have enough segments giving it this unintended 'jumpy' effect. Though it looked kinda cool and made it look real old. So I threw the frames into digital fusion, slapped on some goofy effects and this is what came out. :D

Still after some texture work. Haven't done much with the environment, other then a simple ground object and textures. Still need ground scrub and need to work out creating the animated displacement map for the treads.

wouldn't wanna be run over by that thing.

...And is it me or does the wheel just keep getting bigger and bigger each render?

Good Stuff Fuh!

Here's a test shot for a shot I'm incorporating. It will be a rack focus type shot.

Great to see it in an environment.. It kind of reminds of podracing, but with other vehicles oviosly :) how the hell do you spell "oviosly"? :D

Well I basically had it finished last week, but decided to spend the extra time putting in a couple extra shots. Rendering the last stuff on work computers as we speak. Compositing and re-editing this weekend. Hope to post finished video sunday.
