That's really nice! That's pretty funny, I just got done rewatching the pilot episode like 10 minutes ago--such great show! I would be easier to see the details on a higher resolution rendering. If you could, show a wire in perspective too. If this is indeed for a video game--awesome!

a higher rez render

still a lot of cleaning up to do

this was going to be a high res model but then it became a low res one which is NOW going to be a high res model :)

Very nice clean model. I just watched a few of the "behind the scenes" from scifi.com/battlestar, and it looks like you modeled it perfectly. Obviously, with smoothing groups and perhaps even normal-mapped textures it will look fantastic. I did notice, however, that the Cylon's shoulder armor (pads?) looks a bit thicker in the show.. perhaps because the edges are a bit more rounded off. That's very minor detail, though, because the Cylons never really get too much lighting anyway, so it's difficult to tell what's what :-) I would really like to see this in-game!

That is really good, I've been watching the new series lately, It's nice to see a zylon in detail!

What kind of reference did you use?

I was going to say something about the extra segments on the arm sections but they look like they might be needed, also you said it wasn't optimzed yet.

I have just started a battlestar project

well this will be good for reference

good modelling btw i hope that we can see some shaded renders soon
