still: mechanical Scorpion



Hi guys!

I modelled this little guy during the last 5-6 evenings.
Its Max5.1, about 1.3 million faces, rendertime about 1 hour (1 Ghz, 256 MB Ram :annoyed: )

Hope you like it!





EDIT: I added some wires on page 4, 5 and 6 of this thread.




EDIT: Added a new, slightly different version with a shiny metal for the mechanics. Which one do you prefere? :


Thank you all for your c&cs!

Awesome work, it could use some better shadows and a scene. Other people have done mechanical scorpions before, I believe this is now the best...

Gasp....

(one minute of absolute silence)

Holy crap man can we see some closeups? Especially the hooks near his "eyes" and the legs do interest me. And a wire... please? Very very good scene, very detailed.

Wish I could do that

@Garma & Zag: Im actually quite glad that my old PC did THIS render, so I dont have any more views at the moment. Im at work now, but tonight I can certainly get a wireframe and some closeups ("head", legs, whatever..) rendered. There are actually a lot more details underneath the shell, the whole mechanic parts are attached to each other. Maybe Ill remove the shell (do you say that? shell? Sorry, German ) and post the raw mechanic parts tomorrow. Lets see what my PC says :annoyed:

Thanks again, I was really getting annoyed with this model during the last 2 days and your response is very "refreshing"

I have seen many different variations of machined creatures, varying from different styles, but this one in particular works perfectly in portraying what I feel would be how a mechanical scorpion would look like. The way the outer body layer curls over the machinery below, stretching out beneath the legs to form the structure is something to be admired.

Perhaps if you added a darker background with various lights surrounding certain areas of the body, it would give the model a sense of depth. Of course this is only a suggestion.

The model looks digitally painted with a wacom, rather that an actual model, which to me is a good thing. I feel it adds to the picture, with that slight etches to the colour.

The model has been constructed very well, so theres nothing more to say other than good job.
