HMC #14 Heavy Metal: Droideka

Hi guys,

this is my first challenge and big modelingproject. This because I have alot of homework.
So I want to make something out of it! I'll go for it 100%. In combination with all the other (in my school, boring) work and upcoming exames offcourse.

I will model a droideka.

Try to create good looking surroundings. If it is possible and fits my timeschedule, I will try to model a great scene. But I can't promise that for sure.
The only trouble for me is the texturingpart. I will do my utter best to make something out of it.

So... it's about time to start...

Update 01

Right... I hadn't much time to model yet. But I started this weekend. And I fear that I can not complete the challenge. I have to much work for school. But that won't hold me. I will try to model to the end. We will see.

Like I said before, I model the droideka from E2 (head is a little bit difference).
I started with the most difficult part, the head. There still have to be some tweaks done, but there is allready a basic form. Also some detail must be added. But... this is what I've done for now





MasterErroSennin models the droideka to and I agree with him. Good reference is hard to find.

So I hope I will be able to finish my model. Until then... have fun everyone.

I hate to announce that I have to hold up the challenge. I have to much work for school. I'm 1 month away from the exames and the teachers now give all there projects at one time. They're boring, but they have to be done. So...

I will model my droideka to the end and post it in the gallery. I'll will use it in my final schoolproject. Then I will have the time to model it. But now I don't have the time.

So... As bad as it is. I have to stop the challenge because of school. It's very sad to do this, but I can't put school in a second priority status.

This was always one of my favorite droid designs from the new SW films. Sorry you won't be able to finish it up for the conference. Good luck with exams! and hopefully you can finish it up at some point!
