Smoking Robot, Axel Akesson (3D)

Title: Smoking Robot
Name: Axel Akesson
Country: Germany/sweden
Software: Softimage|xsi 4.0


After a lot of work... it's finally complete.
I hope I've improved a bit since my last robot.

Some info:

Done in XSI 4.0
- Standard lights used.
- A few reflection passes used to get nice reflections (no HDRI).
- Rendered in 2K, 16 bit and composited using the FX Tree and final touches in Photoshop CS.
- Too many passes.

Reference image from the book "1000 robots, spaceships & other tin toys", Teruhisa Kitahara & Yukio Shimizu, published through Taschen.

The little scratches on the robots body really add to the realism. Nice job.

Try to do an advertising poster of the robot in the old 50s-Style!

Looks really cool!

But where do you put the cigarette?
  08 August 2004
I once had a robot that did that back in the late 80's or early 90's, I forget. No cigarette, but smoke would come out of its mouth. I'd be surprised if they were allowed to make something like that today, though. A bunch of parents would probably file lawsuits claiming that it made their children want to smoke or something. Kinda makes me feel old.

Overrall i like the image, i think the robot is a bit too shiny, when i look at him, i think tin, and tin is rarely ever that shiny, i'd dent him up a bit, or even if he's brand new, give him more of a metallic sheen, he looks plastic in areas right now, i like the concept and the model though, looks very cool. As for Slag, if you have valid criticism, i think any of us would be happy to field it or respond, but just making a simple stupid comment is rude and pointless.
