Congrats to everyone that made it!
I’m happy to say…this is my first model that was done entirely in Zbrush, no other app has been used at any point except for photoshop for compositing the beauty render. I could also experiment with hard surfaces. A good learning experience, although mixed with my moving out of India for some time (and partying is necessary), so I only worked a few (5-6) nights on it.
If you are interested on a walkthrough of this character, you can see video recordings of all the work I did on it in the wip thread. So far only the head is ready to watch but I’m planning on finalizing the whole body in a few days. Gotta say I finished half the character last night so the upcoming videos might not be too educational for some people.

[b][/b][color=darkorange]Frank Grecco (drossxyu)[/color]Johnny 5 [Short Circuit] Bust
Since I originally planned on doing more than a bust, I figured the arm would probably connect to something (e.g., the rest of his body ). Unfortunately, that didn’t happen so I left it out. I did toy with the idea of including it on the table in my ‘workshop’ video, but it became too cluttered and distracting ( and I also didn’t finish texturing it).
Special thanks to Terry and Richard for their reference material. Original Design by Syd Mead.
Thanks to everyone for their support in the WIP thread and Congrats to everyone that has finished!

This is the 2nd time, i’m in a hardcore modelling challenge and i’m quite glad that i was able to do up this piece of work which i intially wanted to try out during hcm09-starwars tribute. While C3po was mainly a good test of my subdivisional modelling skills, R2d2 was alittle bit more hardsurface. Based on a concept art and some reference from toys, i needed to guess some of the finer details that were missing or vague.
I’m quite glad that i managed to do up the texturing of r2d2 with my limited knowledge of unwrapping as well as time.
estimated time spent on this project would be roughly 50+ hrs

All modelling was done using 3D Max, and the textures were created in Photoshop. All post work was done in Photoshop as well.
TOTAL TIME SPENT : Well over 60 hrs … to be honest i lost count …
This was my second HMC entry, the first being the Star Wars one last year. It was again a hugely enjoyable experience, but quite intense. The end result is, in my mind, worth the effort.
Thanks to all who commented in the wip thread, and congratulations to all who put the effort into producing some excellent works …

Cain was a particular difficult model to create since it has so many irregular shapes and lines, and because
I had to rely on several sources of references which came from different models in different poses
(8 models was created for the movie + a full size torso). Also its non-symmetrical and has four arms with almost no identical elements.
However I am relatively happy with the result and the time it took to recreate this fabulous design.
I spend roughly 65-70 hours on this including reasearch.
Special thanks to HenrikBC for support, advice and critique.
Also a special thanks to Insroo for his support and generous supply of reference material.
