Not a 3D update for once!
Left the work at home and spend the easter weekend with my brother in Bremen! More photos on flickr
deciding on all the mechanical parts needed for articulation and mapping them in 3D space. Almost time to start building final geo.
concept by Alex Palma
So it turns out the El Caracol’s are in fact transport/ reloading mechs, and not cranes. this explains the barrel behind the top of the claws and the very limited movement in the crane mechanism itself.
should be able to finish designing this is much less time and get to building more final geo! :]
So i’ve decided to put my character on hold. Will be continuing with it once i can dedicate more than 1/2hrs at a time on it. By the time i find some ref and start blocking in displacement it’s time for bed.
Will be looking for a hard surface piece i can work up without having to sacrifice quality.
Haven’t done any modeling in such a long time!
Playing around with the idea of having a membrane lining to the cage. will be adding string ties from the corners to the cage to see if it looks good. potentially adding holes and tears in the fabric.
