    Hi everyone. Here is an old model from early 2005, which I thought deserved a second chance at some new renders. I gave him my current material setup up, and a better lighting compared to before. I think he turned out really good, and looks a lot better then the first time. :) 

    Update:
    Added two renders of Galaxy Convoy based off the Crystal version. :)

    Thanks for all your comments. :) 

    Would be cool to do some with a similiar lighting. :) 


    Thanks Grimmlock! :) 


    Galaxy Force 2: The search for Starscream! I was looking at that toy yesterday, and thinking how it would make a good model. :)  But first, I need to get Classics Rodimus done first.

    I'm honestly not sure exactly how long it takes for me to model. I'm timing myself right now with Rodimus, so I should have a rough idea. This model is 4 years old. I modeled it over three months. If I had to redo him now, it'd take about a month. Not sure about hours though.

    A modeler that goes by the name of Cerebros made an amazing Metroplex model years ago. It had that sense of it being a titanic sized robot, with all the detailing over it. I probably won't do Metroplex, since the other was pure awesome. :D

    Heh, I remember him - thought the model was pretty damned awe-inspiring then; with the new set-up, it goes so far beyond that, it's unreal. Superlative work, Venks, and really looking forward to seeing Rodimus! :rock

    Thanks again for all your comments. :) 




    Thanks dude! Sadly, all my personal projects are on hold due to commission work. But some of these pieces are TF related, so I can't wait until I get the go ahead to share them here. :)

    That Galaxy Convoy model looks very nice, venksta. That lighting and material setup really brings out the details and really presents him as being more than a toy. I'd love to see how Rodimus comes out when he's finished (btw, which version are you making?)
