This is fantastic.

Cheers, man. Hopefully be worth the wait. And there is still a fair bit of wait to come. Going to throw this week at developing MkIV of the power armour suit. Hopefully this will be the final iteration although I wouldn't rule out a MkV. The rig is causing all sorts of retarded problems based on shit I didn't understand when I was making it. Nature of the beast - first do it wrong and, in doing so, learn why it's important to do it right. Plus I'm still using the hipoly output from Medium and it's slowing my machine to a crawl so I'll have to get in and retop the whole thing in Blender otherwise scenes with a lot of these guys are going to be out the question. On the plus side the level of detail will be off the charts compared to the shit I've shown you so far so we have another major jump in quality in the bank.

Still need a solution for the leg pistons and the chains but I don't anticipate any problems there, it's just something I haven't looked into yet. Then there's the Nessie who still needs a whole bunch of detail added. Model is pretty cartooney now. It's basically still just a sketch at this point and I'd like to be able to shoot extreme closeups of things like the eyes, mouth and claws. Hopefully I can get those two high detail and proper rigged by the end of the month and at that point my output will go from 0-100 overnight and should look like a DDoS attack on photobucket 8)

Breakthrough. MkIV rig is now doing shit I never even dreamed possible! I swear the little bastard is alive. This is going to be stupid easy. Rest of the week doing retop on the suit. It's still a couple of million polys at this point which is why the video is jerky as fuck. Once I've got him down to a hundred k or so, posing will be silky smooth.

Armour looks okay from a distance but not so good close up. Before I do the retop (which will kinda lock me in) I'm going to remodel the whole thing with better detail, starting with the helmet.

The next bit. Tomorrow night hopefully I can retop this, thereby replicating a whole weekends efforts in a couple of hours.

I gotta draw the little grid by hand. That's what's taking so long here  :argh!:

Chain is back! Also more progress on the remodel. Shoulders and elbows next, then the hands. Hands will be a while. Going to go all out and build something that at least looks vaguely plausible but also sick as fuck. Lastly will be the pistons. I have a solution for those but, right now, it's only been tested in my head. So it's a thought experiment but I'm pretty confident it'll pan out in implementation.

The main takeaway from here, tho, is that I'm finally sitting with a half built version of final-quality resource. Like this pic is how all the panels are probably about as far as I can take it in terms of detail and lighting and realism and all that good stuff. For once I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. If I'm not careful I'll end up with arse prints all over my laurel collection. Nessie is still a fucking building site right enough. Plenty room for improvement there.

Okay so this has been holding me up for f'kin days. Finally think I know where I'm headed with the hands. Had to rebuild from the ground up as something that will animate. A lot of expression comes from hands. Worth spending some time to get looking semi-believable.

Still in the pipeline. Bit more stuff I need to figure out but I'm on the home stretch for sure.
