Smile still: robot hopper

This robotic grasshopper i made last summer.
It was created with this as reference:

The hoppers:

It's a bit undersampled here and there but rendering on my xeon 1.7 Ghz was quite long already

Made in 3ds max 5 with brazil RS.
Mesh was about 100 mb which was a major pain when i started to animate so i devided it in several parts (xref objects). It took long to load but at least i could save it quikly

some more:

---edited july 30---

I've redone the lighting on the grasshopper and rendered a short anim

Here you can view a short landing animation of the hopper: (bink executable movie)

The walk cycle is coming along nice (prev anim):

Final render of the hoppers on leaves:

Very nice work on this model, although I'm not to sure about the material you have used for the shell I can see where you are going with it. The assembly of the model is terrific and snaps together perfectly, you have kept true to the original reference image while producing a very imaginative version of the creature.

Excellent job.
