    Thanks d00d. I've finally found a texturing style I truly like :) 
    Anyway! Here is the finished head:

    Nope, just a sh*tload of patience ;) 
    Actually, my gfx machine (3 Ghz P4, 1.5Gb RAM, 200Gb SATA HD) is in for repairs at the moment; motherboard problems. this was done on my older machine (2.4Ghz P4, 512Mb RAM, 80Gb IDE HD). It's enough to model on comfortably (I did Redemption Episode One on it), but it's pretty damn slow when it comes to rendering anything. That's where you need the processor power and the RAM the most.

    Wow, some really good work there, Draven. Is Star Saber going to be featured in Redemption, or are you just doing this as a side project?

    This one's just for fun, d00d.
    A couple of years back I started collecting pictures of Starsaber (I even started a thread here asking for them), with a view to building him, but I never got round to actually doing it. Well, having picked up a beautiful condition Starsaber at Botcon, I decided to finally get on with it :)

    Awesome all the way with the meticulous attention to detail (especially with the interior "eyeball")!

    Overall, I like it alot. :D

    must be nice! I have a pentium III 800 with 256 megs of ram and I dont even know what kind of video card, I think its a riva tnt 2. it works I guess, but I'd never be able to do an entire bot in the detail you can do, even when hiding all the finished parts, it still runs way too slow. I don't know if you saw that Energon Duststorm dude I made a few months ago, that's as detailed as I can go before it gets too choppy and crashes

    You'd be surprised, man; most of Episode One was done using a 750Mhz P3, with 192Mb RAM and a Voodoo 5 gfx card. It's just a matter of squeezing as much performance out of your system as possible.
    I do have an ulterior motive; every model I detail like this yields a variety of recyclable parts; for example, I now have a fully detailed optic system that I can use in other mechanoids as well :thumbs2:
