MechWarrior: Mad Cat, Chris Lovell (3D)

Title: MechWarrior: Mad Cat
Name: Chris Lovell
Country: United Kingdom
Software: Maya, Photoshop, ZBrush

This was a project I originally started a long while back as an exercise to improve my skills in modelling within Maya. However, due to work commitments and other priorities I have only recently managed to re-visit and complete the project.

Modelled in Maya, rendered with Zbrush and post work done in Photoshop.

Critique and comments are appreciated! :)

Lovely work and nice to see the interior! I'm a huge fan of the Mechwarrior games and you did a nice job!

One minor crit though, due to your camera hight and narrow lens the Mech looks really small and toy like at the moment. So I don't know if you were going for that?

Thanks for the input! I'm glad you appreciate it. I struggled to find an angle that I really liked (which gave it the more dynamic view with intimidating size that I really wanted) without loosing a lot of details from either side. In the end I chose to side with the current one so a sense of placement of the internals could be seen.

I had to sacrifice the sense of scale as you rightly pointed out which I was disappointed about.

I've got some occlusion renders I'll put up first thing, which I've been meaning to add on to the post. There's a lot of detail inside that I couldn't show through one shot alone...I may well have to revisit it again soon
