Yeah, I don't think I'll be able to by a new USB card for my computer. I guess I'll just have to start over from scratch... :(

Well... My tank project may be in limbo since I sent it home for "family assistance" in posting... and the USB stick has come up missing.

I don't want to rebuild it... so, in the event that it remains missing, I have begun a quick attempt to create another item...

ALTERNATIVE WAR MACHINE SUBMISSION WIP:

Attached is the bare beginnings of another "war machine" (as I interpret it). It's something that has been around for around 25 years... The great thing about this little goody is that it comes with its own pedestal as a part of its "natural" setting :D

I am able to post still images, so am attaching an early in progress render here. I just cannot upload youtube and AVI type works for some reason. Can anyone guess what it is at this point?

I think "hatch" is the word, but no, it is not either of those guesses. It IS something that many have seen in certain movie review magazines, and very well-known in its own movie genre. Davdud is closer in his guess, sorta...

The movie I am designing from has had sequel work before, but it never revisited this particular part of the original movie.

In fact, after starting on this little model, I found out yesterday that there is actually a sequel/prequel in the works for to the movie in question, exploring this particular part of the original movie. The sequel/prequel release was due for this summer, but got delayed until next year... The man who directed the original movie never worked on the sequel projects, but now he has taken up again to work on the prequel. Many would say he was the key to the original movie's success, and the reason that the sequel efforts did not achieve near the success of the original.

Ah, I think I know, Arik!  Would it have anything to do with face huggers, acid blood and, more specifically, a 'space jockey' with a rather large hole in his chest?

I have no idea WHAT yer talking about, buddy!


After I started working on this, I found out that there is a prequel in the works! And the original Alien director, Ridley Scott, is working it!

Well, I have had problems with the Space Jockey model... but I found some earlier autosaves of the little tank, so I'm crunching to try and re-create that before deadline...

Once again I fell short of getting things done - in this case, re-done... Please don't hold up on account of me. I had problems in rebuilding the tank set... some texture issues and quirks in animating...

And of course I didn't have much free time since I've been working extra to make up for time off while having my fun at the butcher-shop and boarding-house ...
