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:

08-26-2003, 11:50 AM
absolutely crazy detail. love the tones and the whole feeling to the image.

08-26-2003, 11:54 AM
Олег, Муха просто офигенная!!!

08-26-2003, 12:04 PM
Mmmmm!! thats certainly alot of detail!!!! great modeling, but the lighting seems a little washed out on the color version.

08-26-2003, 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:

08-26-2003, 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

08-26-2003, 01:12 PM
Very cool :thumbsup:
Can you do some close-ups please?

08-26-2003, 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]

08-26-2003, 01:54 PM
wow, nice attention to detail.

08-29-2003, 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?

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...

08-29-2003, 07:09 AM
Wow! Intense detail man. Very good stuff

08-29-2003, 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.


08-29-2003, 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

08-29-2003, 08:26 AM
nice, very nice!

like the detail level on that one

08-29-2003, 08:40 AM
why isnt this on the front page yet ?

amazing work

08-29-2003, 09:13 AM
Amazing. As all people say, the attention to detail is awesome! I love the insect desing too.

Congrats!! GREAT WORK!

08-29-2003, 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...

08-29-2003, 10:33 AM
incredible work :eek:

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!!!

08-29-2003, 02:35 PM

08-29-2003, 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!!


08-29-2003, 03:02 PM
jeebus!!!! thats a lot of detail. awesome work, does it move?

08-29-2003, 03:18 PM
... this will gimme nightmares .. :surprised ..

its in the inspiration folder now .. :drool:

08-29-2003, 03:23 PM
:banghead: YOU ARE A LUNATIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:drool: :drool: :drool:

08-29-2003, 04:06 PM
uber detail, like it.

08-29-2003, 04:19 PM
Oh my dear god!!!!

Incredible...just incredible....

08-29-2003, 07:48 PM
good !
may be I will make something like that , because I really love it !:applause:
Keep working !!!

08-29-2003, 09:10 PM

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

08-29-2003, 09:10 PM
That's an insane amount of detail. Really impressive... I wish I had your dedication :)

08-29-2003, 09:24 PM
WOW! Now theres some crazy ass modeling!! very nicely done, it looks awesome!!

08-29-2003, 09:26 PM
Great job! Love all the detail!!!


08-29-2003, 09:33 PM
Красссссссссссссиво!! Тебе работать на Blizzard надо или Warner Brothers!!

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

08-29-2003, 09:49 PM
i want one =D

08-29-2003, 09:56 PM
you must go into a hynotic state to get those details. you crazy.

08-29-2003, 10:08 PM
Wow, simply amazing. How long did that thing take to render?

08-29-2003, 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.

08-29-2003, 11:21 PM
WOW...that is just amazing!!!!!

08-29-2003, 11:23 PM
Wow! Chiort pabiri! :eek:

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

08-29-2003, 11:24 PM

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

08-29-2003, 11:47 PM
hopefully you didnt lost your mind.

08-29-2003, 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:
08-30-2003, 12:06 AM
poop****! Russia must be REALLY REALLY boring... ;)

awesome work..


08-30-2003, 12:47 AM
:applause: O U T S T A N D I N G ! ! ! :applause:

08-30-2003, 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:

08-30-2003, 01:18 AM
Extreamly crazy stuff

08-30-2003, 01:21 AM
Absolutely amazing details!!! :buttrock:

I'm very impress.

Good work.. waiting for more :applause:

08-30-2003, 02:28 AM
WOW! :bowdown: Is it possible to render close ups or other views? :)

08-30-2003, 02:32 AM you woke up one day with an idea and...:eek:
how did you planned the modeling workflow!?!?!?! you are insane!!! ;)

08-30-2003, 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!

08-30-2003, 04:24 AM
My hat goes off to you....sweet model ;)
simply wonderfull :D

08-30-2003, 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

08-30-2003, 04:38 AM
some amazing work! that would be kool ainmated in some way...i guess that explains the 4 months and stuff. awesome work though. keep it rollin

08-30-2003, 06:10 AM

Good Work!!! :buttrock:

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

08-30-2003, 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.

08-30-2003, 09:42 AM
Wooooooow My god !I never see a model which is so complex. :eek:
:thumbsup: Crazy work.
Well done.

08-30-2003, 09:59 AM
Wow and double wow, absolutely beautiful - что тебе ещё можно сказать - просто суперб, мои поздравления ;) !

Holy Shit!

08-30-2003, 12:23 PM
amazing amount of detail...definately needs some closeups :D

08-30-2003, 12:25 PM

08-30-2003, 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

08-30-2003, 02:01 PM

You are superman!

I have seen many amazing amazing work modeling by reyes from you website!

08-30-2003, 05:11 PM

Now lets see it animated ;)

08-30-2003, 06:25 PM

You made me a proud russian today :buttrock:

08-30-2003, 07:04 PM
Ладно... Извините. Наверное надо было сказать просто "неплохая работа" и все, да?
В сайте я эту работу не нашел. :hmm:

08-30-2003, 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.

08-30-2003, 07:47 PM
love it, wish I had your patience.



08-30-2003, 11:52 PM
Unfuc*inbelievable! Incredible detail man, great job!

William b. Hand
08-31-2003, 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?

08-31-2003, 06:34 AM
Insane details, my kind of work!

08-31-2003, 07:37 AM

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)
