mech leg (updated from long ago)


(pofo) #1

You might remember this from this spring (if you have really good memory). Did the foot and a bit of the lower leg then. Now I’ve almost finished the upper leg too.
I think I’m quite possibly the worlds slowest modeller ;), I don’t think I’ve finished anything good since the F1 competition, hehe.

I noticed it looks a bit short from this angle.

Maybe I’ll even finish it one day.

Did another little update (mostly to the backside though so it doesn’t really show much) and changed the bad angle and ugly lighting.

Lookin’ good. very little wrong with that baby. I love the upper joint, looks great. Are the welded screws/pins modeled or bumped? You may want to watch out with there size cause if you want to put a body on that I don’t think the pins should be that big, would look really akward. So what I’m trying to say is watch the scales, it looks more like a robot leg than a mech leg.

Thanks WeWa and Caronte :slight_smile:
I think you’re right about the scale thing WeWa, it does seem a bit small. It’s not going to be a very large mech, but maybe I’ll have to fix that. I’ll see how it looks after I have an idea of how the body will look. Right now I’m thinking something rather helicopter-like, but since I won’t have time to model it in at least three weeks that might change :wink:
Oh, everything is modelled btw, I haven’t put any textures on yet.

Beautiful model! I do actually remember the foot when you posted it. Coming along nicely. I do agree with the ascale issue as well. Just seems too small right now. The upper leg needs to be beefier IMO. Seems to be too thin I think.

Great work. Now I need to get back to my mech and finish that sucker off.

yay! more feedback :smiley:
Thanks for your comments.
I agree that the upper leg is a bit thin, it’s partly a style issue, but maybe it’d look better if I fattened it some.
And yeah, finish your mech BgDM. I wanna see it. It doesn’t even seem to be in the wip part of your gallery.

And you have amazing modelling skills :o

Partly because I only model stuff that don’t exist in reality so noone will be able to compare ;).
