HCM #39: Giant Monsters/Giant Robots - Iron Giant

Hey everyone, I got wrapped up in a crazy work schedule and never got a change to finish my project, but over the past few days I've been free so I decided to finish this one off anyway. Just wanted to show the final render to anyone who had seen the model in its early stages.

It's pretty big (rendered 4k) so please open in a new tab to see full size




Close Up:

Main model is pretty much all done, might do some refining here and there, but otherwise... onto rigging

To Bolts in the back are even space.. Maybe adjust some randomness.. not much but even to be more realistic.

ALso you can see the bolts on the top row they are near the edge versus the other

Thanks Sam, I'll move that top row of bolts down, as for randomness I like them spaced evenly, he's a precision made piece of alien technology, I think the even-ness suits his origin.

I also thought the request for random placement of rivets/bolts was interesting.
I can just imagine other precision mechanical devices utilizing the random approach
to fastener placement. in jet airliners, autos, etc.

You might be able to get away with randomness if you were authoring something like the coding for Obama care's web portal.

Thanks so much! Haven't had a lot of time to work on this lately, but thus far he is rigged and ready to be textured. Hopefully I'll get back on track with this.

To answer your question Anthony, the back plates are supposed to be completely flat and planar, but I was having trouble getting all 5 points of the face to line up perfectly. You can see in the first update that I posted that the left side is tessellated as it stands now but the right side is all going into a singular point in the middle. This was giving me cuts and artifacts in the back plate. The more tessellated option isn't actually %100 flat, but its close enough that once the surface is evenly subdivided its not discernible.
