Orange you say? Went a bit more yellow cos I had JCB in my head but I can go oranger if you prefer?





So these are test shots straight out of Medium of vastly inferior lighting and finished model quality to the finals but, that said, I'm thinking he's looking pretty good shape-wise? I fixed the waistline which meant I had to lose the chains for the time being but they'll be back once I get him into Blender and figure out some pathing tricks to automate the process a bit. Right now it would be half an hours work every time I change the pose and you can fuck right the hell off if you think I'm chucking 5 hours of my life away every time your script tells me there's ten of these pricks in a frame.

I was going to model my own environments but I'm pretty stoked with the effect I'm getting here using just stock photos as scenery cards. I'll see how it pans out. Maybe do a mix. Depends on the set requirements I guess.

First story board is done but I don't fucking like it and I'm gonna use if for buttwipe and try again.  Tonight. 

I will post it to your PMs tomorrow night, at about this time.

Getting that first post into 5 panels is way fucking hard.  2 would work and 10 would work, but it needs to be 5 and that's a bitch.

Started on the arms. By now you should be realising why I said there was no rush for the script. Reckon this armour has at least another couple of weeks to go. Plus maybe another week rigging it. Rigging a robot will be good practice for rigging the faces which are harder and might well take another couple of weeks :eek:

As I'm sure said at the start, tho, once I have the assets built, and a slightly firmer grip on what the fuck I'm doing at the back end, I'll start churning out panels like fuck. Will be snowball effect, just you watch.

New version of Blender just came out the other day. Did a quick test shot of the story so far. A little bit of proper lighting goes a long way

Take your time.

So in 3d modelling you pose your characters by building a "rig" and then a bunch of other complicated as fuck bullshit. When it goes wrong the armour splodeys!  :eek:

Hey Pent, these are awesome... The medium test shots, first series on this page, I know you say you don't like the lighting, but I do. What kind of lighting are you using to get that scattered glare/reflection thing? You can see layers of light bouncing off his glove, particularly in the last medium test shot, do you know what they are calling that these days? In older versions of blender I could get it with a "radiosity", now kinda at a loss?

Thanks dude! The effect you're talking about is called "bloom" or "HDR bloom" one of those effects they stuck in rt rendering engines a while back. Around HL2 time if memory serves. Not sure how you'd do it in blender but there's bound to be something. Hopefully now you have a technical term to punch into google you should have a bit more luck.

More adventures learning to pose this fucking thing.

And more fuck ups.

I keep telling myself it'll be worth it in the end when I can set up a scene in a couple of minutes. Doing it by hand in Medium would take days.

If I end up with a really detailed rig that's a thing that could totally happen. :eek:

Spent a while tonight refining the hands. At one point I was twirling it about and had this idea for the cover

Was fucked off with the original nessie look. I don't think he kept up with the armour in terms of overall meanness. It was turning into Hammerstein V's Barney. Fuck that! Had a go at spider eyes to see if that made a difference. Maybe?





The plan is I'm going to be doing a lot of shit with surface texture and lighting so you never quite get a good look at these fucks, even when they're all over the place so maybe it only really matters to me but it matters so I'll be fucked if he doesn't end up looking badass enough to take down one of those power armour wankers with all six of his eyes tied behind his back.

Steady progress...




I now have a fully rigged and textured power armour suit and a retopo'd, rigged Nessie that just needs the detail baked back in. Starting to feel like this might actually fucking work! :eek:

Cool!  Think I get it. Between bloom and radiosity, here I go
