HCR # 39 - Giant Monsters/Giant Robots:Queen vs Loader


Looking over all the great entries in this challenge so far has been really impressive and motivating. It has inspired me to join myself. The concept will be to combine a Alien Queen pit up against a robot Loader in a Diorama scene. Here are some references

I decided to start with the Loader. I'll do my modelling in 3ds max.

Did a fast block-out just using primitives to get some basic elements and get the size correct:

Minor Update

I did a bit more work on the back part, I think I will Un-wrap this model, might try a bit of texture work on it also. We'll see what the time schedule allows.

I have this feeling that we might have a winner here. Just a matter of how well you model the Alien Queen...

Update Loader

Thanks Boone, but lets see how this goes, the challenge is going to be the Queen for sure.
I got the detail pass done and also managed to pose the Loader, so its ready for hydraulic hose work, I hope to have this done by evening today.

Loadre hydraulics

Thanks Roberto

Took a bit longer than I expected, due to busy schedule this weekend, but got the hose work done. Also managed to unwrap the model for possible future texture work.

Plan is to start on some environment soon, so I can get a feel for the overall scene.

So I blocked out some elements for the overall environment. Did some fast normal map creation in Zbrush for the floortiles. Most of this I hope to refine before the deadline. So hopefully many more details coming. But I also want to get a overall feel of the scene, so will make a base sculpt of the queen soon and see how it works out all together.

And here is the environment and the loader

Wow, now that's what I call fast and accurate modeling! Great work so far and cool choice.
Looking forward to the final piece.
