02 February 2003, 12:26 AM

02 February 2003, 12:39 AM
Wow. VERY nice. I usually try not to post the obvious but I couldn't help it :)

02 February 2003, 12:57 AM
Lovely!!! :bounce:

Great modelling and as fakie said; genius idea!

But dude... isnīt he missing a big, fat, oily, semimechanichal SCYTHE ?!?!:D

02 February 2003, 05:46 AM
Damn, makes the t-800 look like a metermaid. Great skills you got. Love the idea. Lets see where you take it.:thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 07:25 AM
Those legs and feet are awsome!

It could just be a DOOM III model :beer:

02 February 2003, 07:40 AM
Just awesome. :drool:

02 February 2003, 08:16 AM
Savage design there, when I read the title, i was picturing a more cartoony less devilish looking "cliche" reaper robot, but this blew me away. talk about fear of death. :surprised

i love the detail in the body panels!!!:buttrock: :buttrock:

02 February 2003, 03:07 PM
Damn! I'd really like to see a RW Resin model of this one....sitting at my workcenter!:D

Awesome work!

02 February 2003, 05:47 PM
Very very cool design and modelling! :buttrock: :buttrock: :buttrock:

Cheers! :beer:

i like it if it has a bigger hands. the robot looks weak right now just because of the fingers are thin.

i like it very much tho. i am just too picky on the hands.:p

02 February 2003, 08:39 PM
beautiful model! I love the design and idea behind it!

Although I do have one suggestion that I think might make it even better: Try making the arms and hands a lot bigger. Like, disproportionally large. Like he's ready to bash down the doors the heaven or something. I think he'd look a lot more menacing that way.

Just a suggestion, it's awsome the way it is :-D

02 February 2003, 08:57 PM
Thanks Guys, i've updated the thread with a new render properly lit ;) i'll look into enlarging the arms tonight :thumbsup:

I like it just the way it is. . .I see the point here. . .but I think it looks huge just because the head/skull is pretty small. Really cool design. Gonna animate it? ? ?

02 February 2003, 05:39 AM
I love that leg design! I would agree that bigger hands would make it look more menacing, although small hands make it look more sinister. Awesome!

02 February 2003, 09:35 AM
cheers lads, I'm rendering another image with larger hands at the moment and i'll post it up tonight. :wip:

02 February 2003, 05:27 PM
excellant job ! i love this style :p

02 February 2003, 05:58 PM
lovely job, but indeed, as said before, a scythe next to his side would be perfect :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 06:25 PM
definetly needs a scythe. are there feet? (i assume yes, but lets see them) otherwise awesome :thumbsup:

02 February 2003, 06:42 PM
Great work and nice subtle but effective surfacing. :beer:

02 February 2003, 06:44 PM

That Adrian Guy
02 February 2003, 07:25 PM
Absolutely beautiful.

My only crit is that the nasal cavity looks thrown together in a hurry, may want to work on the anatomy there.

02 February 2003, 07:38 PM
totally insane man!

02 February 2003, 08:04 PM
its this already rigged. do you plan on animating it. it would make some really interesting animations. what about textures to you plan on textureing.

02 February 2003, 08:11 PM
I value originality over anything. Much respect on your great idea!:beer:

02 February 2003, 08:19 PM
Very cool, innovative and orignial. Really cool work.

02 February 2003, 09:04 PM
Awesome job. Love the design! Lightwave's render engine never cease to amaze me.... ::sigh:: If only they could make a standalone version :buttrock:

I like the idea but what did he die of?

His skull looks a little too perfect, not scared or skratched or anything like that.

Maybe he died of biological warfare I don't know.

He reminds me of a Starcraft unit... but more dead.

Good job all the same.

02 February 2003, 09:07 PM
What you have is great so far, just congrats on a job well done. I'll wait untal after the update to post my crits, if they still apply.

02 February 2003, 09:40 PM
great job on the modeling. I cant wait to see the changes that you aremaking to the hands. Keep up the great work!!!:buttrock: :buttrock:

02 February 2003, 10:58 PM
Can we see a wire?

I love the model.

02 February 2003, 11:15 PM
Cool, I think the only changes that you should make is to light the lower half a little better, take off that chain that is hanging from its chest, and it might be cool if you put a nice blue or red glow in its eyes.


02 February 2003, 11:37 PM
Exellent work, seriously reminds me of the Chaos Marine Juggernauts and Terminators from Warhammer 40K. Maybe your inspiration?

03 March 2003, 12:44 AM
as i have said before: awesome! the new render is great :thumbsup: it would probably make a good WALLPAPER *wink wink* ;) pleeeaaase

03 March 2003, 02:12 AM

03 March 2003, 02:17 AM
great design

03 March 2003, 03:36 AM
Nice robot, but:

1. the skull somewhat looks out of place (maybe a nose hole could be smaller - i'm not an expert on anatomy). and it also looks like center vertexes wasn't welded after modellind (the skull has a vertical cut in the middle of the face).

2. the texture of legs - the legs look too identical - it has rust and scraches in the same places :hmm:

and totally rusted and stained scythe would look good :)

03 March 2003, 04:29 AM
Wow, so coool. :applause:
Please post this guy with different lighting setups, so that you can see the details of the legs :thumbsup:

Nice model

I have only seen one comment about the seam in the skull, to me, it is quite apparent and I think you must fix it, that just says cutting corners/ran out of time

Also, I think the model/textures could use more contrast, nothing seems to really stand out to me on the model, the face should stand out a lot more

You need to add way more detail on the skull and make it more anatomically correct, I think he needs to look more menacing personally

Hope these are helpful crits or atleast get you looking at some new possiblities for this model


03 March 2003, 06:34 AM
Very Cool! I love it. I too would love to see some kind of evil scyth.

Awesome stuff!

03 March 2003, 07:33 AM
really cool. Looking forward to those updates too.

03 March 2003, 08:34 AM
Great character!!! Really good !!! :bounce: :bounce:

03 March 2003, 10:33 AM
that really is quite fine... good job

03 March 2003, 07:14 PM
Wacky! Wonderful! Nothing more to add.

03 March 2003, 08:21 PM
Good stuff.


03 March 2003, 12:06 AM
Very impressed with the level of detail in this character, I really like the subtle way you handled the texturing. My only crit would be to spend some more time on the face, give it the same kinda love you did with the rest on the body. Very nice

Thanks all for the comments, I'll be updating the Reaper bot soon, especially with regards to the skull. I'll have an update here asap ;)

03 March 2003, 12:48 AM
Reaper robot,

That model is sickening and the textures really juice me up to the max. One quam though; the website. It's a little difficullt to navigate when the whole website is the cursor. I'd like to see your other WIPs. Lemme know if theres another way to browse your work. :surprised

Corn Dog
03 March 2003, 02:15 PM
Actually I didn't find your site hard to navigate, but I don't really like the box on the line cursor system. It is annoying having a virtical line threw what im reading.

If you like the system and want to keep it can I suggest making it visible over the close button for the pictures (that threw me for a sec.)

Also on each picture add a next/prev button so the user doesn't have to close an existing pic and then open another.

But I like your work... working on a knight myself (see avatar been like that for 5 months :) )

07 July 2003, 11:55 PM
cool model. I want to see him animated.:wip:
alhtough i think his one eye makes him look less creepy than if he had two holes.
I like I like

02 February 2005, 07:55 AM
Very nice, my new Projekt is also an Mechwarrior. But I'm fare away from that.

But i think the Reaperrobot need a Weapon.

Greats Aderith
