My new model. 11 000 details, 1 200 000 polygons approximately, 4 months of work. Created using 3DS MAX standard modeling tools.

Large images are available:

and a black/white picture:

08 August 2003, 11:50 AM
absolutely crazy detail. love the tones and the whole feeling to the image.

08 August 2003, 11:54 AM
Олег, Муха просто офигенная!!!

08 August 2003, 12:04 PM
Mmmmm!! thats certainly alot of detail!!!! great modeling, but the lighting seems a little washed out on the color version.

08 August 2003, 12:14 PM
My oh my.......................:eek: i got sshock to see the suspensions, gears, and hey!! i see a fuel injection system in there!! :P

good detail. How long did you take to finish up the whole model inclusive of texturing? :drool:

08 August 2003, 12:24 PM
awesome mechanics, I'm not keen on the colour one, but that's just because I don't like that minty green colour, the B&W one is very well done :thumbsup: you must be incredibly patient

08 August 2003, 01:12 PM
Very cool :thumbsup:
Can you do some close-ups please?

08 August 2003, 01:44 PM
Wow, nice details! :applause: what's the polycount on the model? :D

[edit: uhh, opps, nevermind! I missed reading your construction details because I went straight for the links, and then forgot to check back... I'm tired :p]

08 August 2003, 01:54 PM
wow, nice attention to detail.

08 August 2003, 04:20 AM
I don't want to even fathom how you could design something so intricate. Nice work.... looks like a lot of dedication went into this piece.

How long did it take to render?

08 August 2003, 06:33 AM
Thats crazy whack man, thats straight up bitch ass quality work. you got the 9 O on that 311? and dont forget to choke the chicken on that piccy, otherwise your results will be mad weak...

08 August 2003, 07:09 AM
Wow! Intense detail man. Very good stuff

08 August 2003, 07:38 AM
Have you looked at grasshoppers up close? I imagine you have, judging by the pic. They really are such intricate, delicate, robotic creatures. Like every insect, a tiny marvel of evolution. Its so nice I just wanna squish it.


08 August 2003, 07:40 AM
Nice modeling, but I think that you could add different shades of green to your bot to make it less uniform.... good work

08 August 2003, 08:26 AM
nice, very nice!

like the detail level on that one

08 August 2003, 08:40 AM
why isnt this on the front page yet ?

amazing work

08 August 2003, 09:13 AM
Amazing. As all people say, the attention to detail is awesome! I love the insect desing too.

Congrats!! GREAT WORK!

08 August 2003, 09:28 AM
WOW! WOW! WOW!......I am shocked with the detail man! very full attention to the work and this work is a very good example to any artists that want to go far in this line...

All the best and keep up the good job !...wish to be like you hehehe...

08 August 2003, 10:33 AM
incredible work :eek:

08 August 2003, 12:09 PM

08 August 2003, 12:14 PM
Ne, nu to chto russkije hollywood pokorjat, tut i k gadalke ne nado hodit'. Pomojemu samije talantlevije ljudi v Rossii i vo Franzii. Oni konechno est' vezde, no inogda kakoynibut' russkiy prosto beret i udevljaet, ostovljaja drugih istekat' sljunuy. Molodez!!!

08 August 2003, 02:35 PM

08 August 2003, 02:45 PM
The Detail is more than amazing!
Iґve done a lot of technical modelling and robotic stuff too, but I never ever integrated THAT much mechanical stuff.....

4 months? To be honest: I would never have the patience to construct mechanical parts for 4 months on one model..

The only thing I would personally change is the rendering itself. A bit more contrast and a better lighting - man, make it look really photorealistic!! The model deserves it!!


08 August 2003, 03:02 PM
jeebus!!!! thats a lot of detail. awesome work, does it move?

08 August 2003, 03:18 PM
... this will gimme nightmares .. :surprised ..

its in the inspiration folder now .. :drool:

08 August 2003, 03:23 PM
:banghead: YOU ARE A LUNATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:drool: :drool: :drool:

08 August 2003, 04:06 PM
uber detail, like it.

08 August 2003, 04:19 PM
Oh my dear god!!!!
That's some details!
Incredible...just incredible....

08 August 2003, 07:48 PM
good !
may be I will make something like that , because I really love it !:applause:
Keep working !!!

08 August 2003, 09:10 PM

( wonder if that can run realtime in a game. )

08 August 2003, 09:10 PM
That's an insane amount of detail. Really impressive... I wish I had your dedication :)

08 August 2003, 09:24 PM
WOW! Now theres some crazy ass modeling!! very nicely done, it looks awesome!!

08 August 2003, 09:26 PM
Great job! Love all the detail!!!


08 August 2003, 09:33 PM
Красссссссссссссиво!! Тебе работать на Blizzard надо или Warner Brothers!!

Beautiful!! U should be working for blizzard or Warner Brothers!!

08 August 2003, 09:49 PM
i want one =D

08 August 2003, 09:56 PM
you must go into a hynotic state to get those details. you crazy.

08 August 2003, 10:08 PM
Wow, simply amazing. How long did that thing take to render?

08 August 2003, 10:20 PM
I must respect the amount of work and detail that went into this model, but isnt it a bit overkill? A lot of the detail could have just been created via bump map or displacement map instead of modeling.

Fantastic dedication, hard work etc. (and nice design too!) But there's no chance it'll be animated, is there?:surprised

If you do, you'll definitely need a tin can model.

08 August 2003, 11:21 PM
WOW...that is just amazing!!!!!

08 August 2003, 11:23 PM
Wow! Chiort pabiri! :eek:

4 months? That's pretty fast, i wouldn't be able to finnish it in 4 years!

08 August 2003, 11:24 PM

You can almost hear the metal claws screeching against the glass!

08 August 2003, 11:47 PM
hopefully you didnt lost your mind.

08 August 2003, 11:52 PM
WOw, that's my kind of stuff. I like all the little pieces of metal gear. There are a lot of details, but without losing the overall shape. Good work. :applause:
08 August 2003, 12:06 AM
poop****! Russia must be REALLY REALLY boring... ;)

awesome work..


08 August 2003, 12:47 AM
:applause: O U T S T A N D I N G ! ! ! :applause:

08 August 2003, 12:56 AM
Whow, that is so very cool, oleg!
Four months is a long time, seems like it paid off though. Is it going to be used in a bigger project?
I agree with some of the comments about the shading. It's cool that it is one color only but some different tones would be good too.

Good work!:applause:

08 August 2003, 01:18 AM
Extreamly crazy stuff

08 August 2003, 01:21 AM
Absolutely amazing details!!! :buttrock:

I'm very impress.

Good work.. waiting for more :applause:

08 August 2003, 02:28 AM
WOW! :bowdown: Is it possible to render close ups or other views? :)

08 August 2003, 02:32 AM you woke up one day with an idea and...:eek:
how did you planned the modeling workflow!?!?!?! you are insane!!! ;)

08 August 2003, 03:39 AM
If the devil is in the details, you're that' much closer to the evil one! WOW!!! I'm drooling on this! Only 1.2 mil polygons? Geez, I'm doing something wrong over here.....WonderfuL!

08 August 2003, 04:24 AM
My hat goes off to you....sweet model ;)
simply wonderfull :D

08 August 2003, 04:34 AM
WOW must have amazing patience that really is amazing
i to don't like the coloured version to much heh but i can't image texturing a beast like. WOW

08 August 2003, 04:38 AM

08 August 2003, 06:10 AM

Good Work!!! :buttrock:

т.е. Отличная работа! Приятно, когда люди не ограничиваются Рендером.ру. Россия, блин, - форева:)

08 August 2003, 07:20 AM

One darn fine model you've got there. But you should look into giving it some more detail. It looks too much like just a rough volume right now.

Yes, I'm kidding! Most people would pass out with convulsions before even having finished the legs of that thing... Impressive, to say the least.

08 August 2003, 09:42 AM
Wooooooow My god !I never see a model which is so complex. :eek:
:thumbsup: Crazy work.
Well done.

08 August 2003, 09:59 AM
Wow and double wow, absolutely beautiful - что тебе ещё можно сказать - просто суперб, мои поздравления ;) !

Holy Shit!

08 August 2003, 12:23 PM
amazing amount of detail...definately needs some closeups :D

08 August 2003, 12:25 PM

08 August 2003, 12:26 PM
Really it's a fine work... after of that... I'm thinkig not continue in 3D world and begin with a intensive formation to be a good fisherman :applause:

Please, continue sending your work... Greetings from Spain

08 August 2003, 02:01 PM

You are superman!

08 August 2003, 05:11 PM

Now lets see it animated ;)

08 August 2003, 06:25 PM

You made me a proud russian today :buttrock:

08 August 2003, 07:04 PM
Ладно... Извините. Наверное надо было сказать просто "неплохая работа" и все, да?
В сайте я эту работу не нашел. :hmm:

08 August 2003, 07:19 PM
Crazy work, man.
stunning detailing.
It really looks like it could move (technically i mean), kinda reminded me of a spider from the movie Wild Wild West.

Как ты планирывал эту модэль то? В прогрессе или модэлил по концептам?
Классно. поздравляю.

08 August 2003, 07:47 PM
love it, wish I had your patience.



08 August 2003, 11:52 PM
Unfuc*inbelievable! Incredible detail man, great job!

William b. Hand
08 August 2003, 01:16 AM
...BEAUTIFUL. I agree with the comments about the lack of contrast. I prefer the bluish one over the b&w.
You definitely must give us some detail shots, that is recquired.
Congratulations, this is stunning!

I wish your website was navigable. I couldn't find much on it... certainly didn't find anything as cool as this there. Anybody know the key to that lock?

08 August 2003, 06:34 AM
Insane details, my kind of work!

10 October 2003, 04:43 PM
Dear colleagues!

I apologize to answer too late. Thank you very much for appreciation of my artwork. If you want to know a bit more about the process of its modeling, you may visit that link:
I tried to describe everything there. The wireframe view is also presented.
"Flying Machine" is a non-commercial project. I haven't made an animation yet, the hardware upgrade is needed. The rendering with Cebas FinalRender took less than 8 hours (1600x968 pixels).
Sooth to say it's my first experience in the field of robot's modeling. Some of my artworks you can see at
The last images are shown on the top of page. Not all of them were based on my ideas. For example, - this scene is made using Leonardo da Vinci's drawing.

Best regards,
Oleg Karassev (author)
