Exactly as the title says:
Sweet, one of my favourite 'bots looking mean as ever.
What tools did you use to create this?
it was modelled, textured and rendered in Lightwave 3D; the signature and watermark was added using Photoshop.
Awesome modelling as always
Jeje, you did Shockwave using Lightwave.
Excellent 'Con Draven.
pretty cool, though I'm curious as to what has been changed from the previous version. All that is really coming to mind right now is that the colors have been altered and the lighting improved from past renders.
Still an excellent piece.
He's had a complete retexture, as it goes; also, the shot is 100% lit with an HDRI image.
My hat is off to you sir!
You are one amazing artist
my gawd!! this is excelent great work draven
Pretty sweet work dude.
I like it a lot. One of my favorite transformers with nice textures, proportions, and overall looks. Looks very professional.
did you have trouble making the legs too? I know I did when I built my shockwave model
yeah! I remember yer old model, how Ive missed it!! Can you add the glow effect to his gun hand?? I mean, would you mind *L* I know you CAN. anyways, STILL loving this model!!!
You mean the lower legs, right? I started off by making the profile as a flat poly; adding/removing ponts as necessary to get the shape. Then I extruded it into a box, worked on the final shape, and bevelled it. Finally, I added the kneepads, ankle pieces, and inside leg details. I still need to give him working knees before he's ready to be animated; I keep forgetting to do that (I'll normally get the shape right first, then add details like that afterwards).
Upper legs were easy; simply a box in the right shape, with a hole cut through it for the details, and a movable hip piece for the top.
Very nice. I think I have an earlier version of this archived somewhere.
yeah.. the lower leg pieces I mean. more specifically the curved areas on the lower legs
The silver gun handle pieces I didn't get off quite the way they should be.
see on yours how the curved area's are chamfered there, but then it goes all wierd and doesn't come out right? you can see it on the curved parts. Mine sometimes comes out the same way. Do you know how to fix that so the chamfer comes out straight?
I know im doing something wrong. sometimes after I curve the piece with mesh smooth or whatever.. if I go to chamfer it, it gets really distorted
I'm not quite sure what you mean... can you elaborate any? Feel free to PM me about it if you want, I'll see if I can help any.
