Scroll Down for Update

Some of you may remember my original robot that I was working on in this thread http://www.elysiun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2073&highlight=

Well, it was getting too complex and way too big in file size (3 MB blend file) and was a pain in the ass to work on on my slow comp. Therefore, it is now in the blender scrap heap.

So I have started a new, less complex and more streamlined version. An half hour of modelling this morning:

Let me know what you think thus far. I will have another update later today.

Hopefully I can get this to render in Lightflow once completed and have some nice reflections and such.

Looks like the dude from Babylon 5 :slight_smile:

pretty neat. but ehm…one point. 3 MB is pretty damn small for a blendfile. I’ve started a scene a week ago that’s 1.5 MB now (not packed). heck, when I first started I even made one that was 21 MB (don’t know how I did that though :slight_smile:

Thanks guys.

Goofster: I know that 3 Mb is not all that big. But I had way too many small complex parts in it and it was getting to be too much to work with. That’s all.

Update later today.
