well probably shapeing it will be kinda easy, like the head, body, and coloring it. But the helmet is tricky if u ask me, i dont know how to make things transparent to make it have that effect. But whats your problem on makeing it..?

Well I, as one who has very almost one year of experience with this progeam would have a long list but

- Makeing holes for screws.
- Doing the arm (the shapes and the flap for the communicator/scanner)
- The buttons, the legs and feet,
- The hands will have to be the hardest part.
- Those two purple things on the torso,
and I may need assistance with the back...

Yes, to the best of my modelling experience with anim8or, you can do it with anim8or.  You need not model all the things as one piece.  Try to model accessories as different objects.  As far as materials are concerned, anim8or can offer best of it, you only need to keep experimenting.

show us what you have done so far and we can help. Or are you asking for somone to model  this for you?

For the helmet just use an eviron map  for those reflections.

The hands are e asy, just do the hand tut on the tutorial page

And you don't really need the holes for the screws unless people are gonna be seeing the dissasembled body, As others have said, I usually model accessories as seperate objects, since I find it difficult to carve one shape into a full object.

Hey y'all,

So I tried once again.

I did try to make the arms and legs but I just don't have that much experieice with this program.


This is what I made so far;
http://img19.picoodle.com/img/img19/3/11/18/f_buzzlightyem_a51979a.png

This is what I'm using to help
http://www.pixar.com/featurefilms/ts/images/behind_buzz_wire.jpg

And here's what I was wondering, I was wondering if there were any good 3d modelers here so I could work with them. I build the most of the figure I can and the other can finish it.

Just keep at it, practice makes perfect. By the time you have finished every part of Buzz you won't need someone else to do it for you. ;)

Heh. Good advice lynn22.

animationnation,

do you have a goof full face shot of buzz, not at an angle.

and do you have a profile shot of his face? again not an angle shot?

or do you have a buzz toy you can photograph?

if you do stick them up.

animanon.com has a mentor program that would help you.

ask for Kevin  Kreator.

I'd recommend not trying to copy Pixar's wireframe. Instead find a rendered shot of Buzz and draw that. Honestly, the Pixar wireframe looks so different from the real thing that even if you copied it perfectly it would look wrong.
