    update

    Yes, finally I have a render of what I've been doing. I apologize to everyone for the wait, but these UV layouts are insane and seem to take forever. I still have quite a bit to do in terms of laying them out, but there finally seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.

    Anyhow, this render was taken with global illumination and final gather. Right now, I'm more focused on getting the actual feel of what Megatron is made of. Since he transforms into a tank, I'm going for that heavy matte metal look. After I achieve that, I'll include scratches, scrapes, dirt, and mud.

    Update!!

    Geez, can't believe that's been nearly two months since I last updated this thing. Anyways, I've recently gone back to work on this model and wanted to share some updates. Most of the textures are being redone from scratch (yet again) to try and have more consistency throughout the model. At the moment, they're pretty bland, but will have more life in them soon. The main goal at the moment is to get the UVs finished and place the base textures on before dinging everything up and adding mud and dirt, etc.

    Nice model, though I can't say I wouldn't like to see it against a light-colored background. Like, say, a white background. Seeing as how it might make some of his already dark-colored details stand out more.

    Okay, I've had enough of this UV Unwrap nonsense. It's been driving me nuts, so I'm forcing myself to try and give procedurals another attempt. This time, I think I'm starting to get the hang of it, though there still are a lot of things to edit/add.

    I'm currently using the M1 Tank model I have for a test. Here's a shot.

    and like my sig says, if you aren't happy with where the movie is going, have a character you'd like made, or even a self designed fan character you want in 3D, feel free to send me a PM and we'll talk prices.
