For blendswap’s character contest I plan on creating a steampunk character. This is my WIP thread.
First, I created animatable interlocking gears moving pipes, fans, and a spring.
Then I textured the gears and pipes and fans and created a small scene. All this was basically just practicing techniques I’ll need to actually create a character.
The render of the practice is here: http://jrkirby.deviantart.com/art/Cubic-Meter-of-SteamPunk-288417093
I plan on updating this thread as I make progress. I still have alot of learning to do before I can create a steampunk character, so most likely I’ll post a bunch of tests before the rough draft of the character
