Title: Mantibot-My entry for a robot design competition
Name: Linghan Bai
Software: Maya, Photoshop
This robot is my entry for a robot design competition in China. It is required by the competition that Chinese cultural elements should be integrated into the design, which I find is difficult to accomplish, and this piece is what I come up with.
My idea is to create a robot that is as realistic as possible, so I incorporate univeral joint and hydraulic transmission system into the design.
The robot consists of 1641 objects, and was modeled in Maya. I also rigged the whole model, so all the joints and hydraulic transmission system are animatable.
It took me several months to finish this project, from initial design to final rendering. The process is painstaking but fun:)
Critiques and comments are welcome.
