    Animated Blitzwing model *Completed*

    I though I'd put up the bit I've done of this guy so far as I doubt I'll do much more before xmas.

    I'm not sure if the render is better or worse with 'sketchy' edges to make it look drawn?

    Much better with the non-sketchy lines. Very faithful work, as always, Rodentus. Keep it up!

    lol that's awesome :) 

    just don't pull a me, and never finish it :p  what program are you using? I used 3D max to make my bumblebee, but I really hate that program, some day I'll get around to trying a few of the others, I heard lightwave is good

    Awesome. The slitted eye looks great, but the wide open one just seems not right somehow, wish I could say how to change it, but not sure.

    I use Google Sketchup which is pretty easy to learn although it's better at angular stuff than organic shapes, and render with Podium which is fairly simple and works within Sketchup - both programs have free versions virtually the same as the full versions.

    I think the monocle is slightly low but his brow gets in the way a bit of moving it up.

    p.s Don't worry Altitron - I havent forgotten Ramhorn I just needed to do something different to get back into the swing of modelling

    *EDIT*

    Did a bit more - I'm sticking more with the toy sketches than the animated model.

    Now from this angle the eyes look great, funny how things are like that eh?
    You didn't change anything except the angle, right?

    Nope - it's just that as they aren't symetrical they can look funky at some angles.

    Well, the /STRAIGHT/ lines on the model look great, it was the wavy, Peanuts-style lines that don't look good at all. Keep up the great work! (Can't wait for Ram Horn! :D )

    Better late than never....

    I think I'm about done with this apart from playing around with posing/rendering him. It'll be interesting to see the toy to see how far wrong I am.

    Excellent work. Any chance for a version with the Arnold face?

    That's a pretty sweet looking model, Rodentus. Is that Mental Ray you're using by any chance?

    I think you should animate him. But I liked it
