Return of the Sentinel

Ok, I posted a WiP of this ages ago, but I’ve still been working on it, slowly. I need more than 24 hours in a day!

Here’s some updates from November.
The pose in this one is copied from a still taken from the DVD…

And this one is just testing laser effects…

I originally planned to animate it but now I’m not sure if I’ll ever have the time…
Still to be done - Make the claws at the end of the tentacles, texture it properly, add the rest of the tentacles in the laser pic, make a nice background, and probably lots more!

I would have liked to have used the blur plugin for DoF effects on the first image but I need to use unified render for the ‘eyes’ to look right…

that is great

and i know what it is like not having time.

i am sure that if you are unable to animate it that someone else would be glad to do it for you (unless it is one of those things you must do yourself)

its great (oh i said that already)

Great. Just out of cur. Can’t use the path-camera method for DoF with the unified render? I don’t know whether is has mBlur but if it doesn’t then just glue the 16-pics together with GIMP or something. I love the mesh though. How did you do the eyes?

I haven’t had time to try the other DoF methods yet, I may do when I get round to finishing the modelling :slight_smile:

The eyes are just a Sphere with a transparent, bumpy texture, and then a tiny halo inside (just a single vertex)

Everyone else - Thanks for all the encouraging comments :smiley:
