Hiya Mr. Duell!!
This stuff is looking gorgeous!
I think for our purposes will the Round-Bot work the best. (2nd. from left to right on the top left corner of the sketches)
While the new more humanoid like design (big head light guy) would also make a nice contrast , I think the Round one makes it also and it will more funny.
What do you think?

Great Work Chris! can't wait to start modeling!
greetings and thanks for all for watching by!

C&C Welcome!!

Some variations

11-27-2008, 03:18 AM
they are all looking good, I personal like the top left.:)

11-27-2008, 08:22 PM
nice! Steamy... yet hitech in a way.

I like the sketch to the right the most. It has bold design choices, and i'm a sucker for small legs and feet. And the straight line eye would be awesome plus the chimneys ofcourse. the more finished sketches i think leans to the more hightech style, which lacks a bit of steam.

Thanks everyone for their comments!
andreasng You are maybe right about the look and fell of David.
He became more solid, powerful and more hi-tech!
Im working on a more steampunky version.
But i had to figure out how his "tools", like steamy boots, flexible arms.. etc will be a part pof his body.

Were planning to do some funky things with this guy!:)

dboydesign Thanx! The spheres are some kind of an instrument. Mabe a bullseye. Liked the idea of a solid clock , or something

Here are some Storyboard pictures, Still Work in Progress!
The Animatic will come soon!

And.... I know that the big guy looks a bitlike the robot of the challenge site...
See it like a placeholder cause thats what it is...

11-29-2008, 02:06 AM

From first sketch to rough model

12-03-2008, 12:08 AM (

Here i tried to make him more Steampunk

12-03-2008, 12:09 AM (

An overpaint in Photoshop, to get an idea..

12-03-2008, 03:29 AM
man your concepts are beautifully rendered, loved it! You got to find a way to transfer that life and energy to your 3D creations, good work so far!

12-03-2008, 07:57 AM
I love the proportions of the robot. Its got a very 'Iron Giant' feel to are in good company!

12-04-2008, 07:15 PM (

Thanx everyone for the nice replies!
Again, some Goliath WIP Pics!

I?m not satisfied with his face yet.
And the steampunk look needs more work....

Tell me what you think!

Long time no post..

He is one of the most experienced 3D Artists i know and i?m very glad to have him on board!
He isn?t a member of CGSociety so I?m posting his work.
