traitor: You’re right about her looking sad in that last one Although I am aiming for one of the more serious flamenco styles, I don’t want her to be too tragic looking. I want her to exude some passion despite her robotic origins, almost as if she always wanted to be a dancer but was programmed to think she was simply a robot, until she decided to study the history of human dance, made her own “dress” (yet to be modeled), repainted herself red, and began acting unlike the other robots in her series. I think you’re right about holding off on materials for now too. The first one will just be a hint of where I intend to take this in terms of color. I have an update below that is just gray and reveals more of the face as I revised it through midnight. Hopefully in this position her expression is more matching what I described.
Haker: You’re right too Early into my workflow I establish basic color and materials for objects, since it helps me in different ways. It can be distracting and misleading though when presenting it as a WIP, so I’m heeding traitor’s advice and just posting some neutral looking renders for the time being until I near the final stage for this project. She is not going to be one of those gadgety type of robots, with lots of wires and little parts sticking out from her, so the details I have in mind will focus more on form and flow.
Okay here’s where I left off last night, about 15 minutes of tweaking from the prior stage. Much more work and refining to be done.
