Basically 2 robots…one (the dude) giving a flower to his (female) friend. The idea started out as a doodle (me being bored out of my mind and messing around in Blender) and I’ve decided to turn it into a finished product. The idea is to make it a landscape/banner composition and on completion, submit it to BlenderNation as a header graphic.
I think it would add a bit if you’d take the circle part of the body, where the spine protrudes and extend the cut on the top portion of the body to show there is room for movement if the robot would need to protrude it’s head forward…but, even without that, it’s still quite awesome.
Hey Robo it looks like you’ve got another great scene going here. The detail on the eyes is awesome:) I’m wondering where you are going to go with the overall coloring of the robots…glossy white or more metalic maybe even a bit aged;) Anyway you go I’m sure will be amazing.
Hi Derek! Thanks for the comment For colouring, I plan to go with low saturated colour theme for each robot (blue/green for the boy, purple/pink/red for the girl) and then add just a touch of grunge/rust texturing to each. The idea is sci-fi/cartoon robot model with antique/aged texturing…a futuristic robot from 70 years ago :eek:
Amazing robot. About the hand I think the whole idea with hand is that you should be able to hold and grab things with them. With a round palm like the robot has I doubt he’d be able to hold anything in it. Thats why I think it looks a little weird.
Can’t wait to see more of your robot
First off, I love your style I even tried to re-create your entry to the BlenderGuru competition! :o
I hope you finish this, it already looks great and the concept is pretty cool, keep up the good work!
P.S. Will the flowers be real flowers or made of metal?
lookin’ pretty awesome, Robo! even without any Mats or Textures, really looks mechanical… some great modelling the detail is amazing too (I went :eek: when I saw the eyes)…complex and simple at the same time, I like it!
looking forward to seeing your banner pop up on BlenderNation! (does it cycle through at all, btw?)
EDIT - in response to RossBlenderArt’s question: would probably be metal, like the stalk of corn in Iron Giant!
Glade that worked out Robo you did an excellent job and I think it really fits the style. Plus the hands (clamps) will be even easier to pose:)
P.S. My vote is for the flowers to be mechnicalized??? if thats a word. Like springs and washer and bolts with some scrap. Anyway dont mind me its easy to build on a great scene and idea:) but ultimately your the man in charge.
Keep up the good work and good luck!.. I’ll be watching
