Smile still: robot hopper



This robotic grasshopper i made last summer.
It was created with this as reference:
http://www.imageafter.com/image.php..._insects036.jpg

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:

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

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.
