...Starsaber. I built the head last night.
This one's gonna take a while, there's a lot to build.
Can't wait to see the final pic.
dam that render looks slick xD
That is nice! Man, I so can't wait to see the finished model.
ooh, love the interior optical details.
Lawd... I can't wait until you show off the full thing *drools* (there so needs to be a drool emoticon).
I second that.
I LOVE the way you texture all your bots now, weeeeee so beautiful!
Thanks d00d. I've finally found a texturing style I truly like
Anyway! Here is the finished head:
There's a lot of it:
See what I mean?
The detail you go to for the friggen internal components is just astounding...
those optics are fantastic!
major kudos to you man! you go the extra mile
that eyeball is even more awesome!!!
man, you must have some kinda super computer to be able to build these highly detailed models.
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.
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
That first pic makes him look mad as hell. I love it!
