Here it is with some extra mesh detail, a different camera/light position, and a lowres skybox because the computer I'm rendering this on is a few heating elements away from being a toaster. I will eventually make a better starfield, though. :)

Alrighty, well, I've a rough-up in the works... The robot has a lot of detail taking shape, but here's an early development render.  Note, legs are going to have much more work in them, and the body has much more to go as well. I just cobbled basic forms to work on animation tests as I bounce between modelling and animating.

Wow, cooldude, yours shows a lot of promise! Simple but it has a lot of potential. :)

Arik, yours looks awesome too. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

TheBlackHole: Yours too! It will be very interesting to see your animation. :D

Myself, I can't participate. I'm too busy with my game. I'm on a tight deadline and I have to work constantly, every second of free time, whether I'm directly working on it or not, is spent thinking about it, planning, coding, modeling, etc.
Just no time whatsoever for Anim8or challenges, sorry. :(

Thanks, Geek... What's really great, is that I got a theme tune courtesy of another anim8or member... So, in a sense, this is a combined effort of two anim8or-nuts... Me as visuals, and cooldude as musical score composer!

Looks like we got some competition (quite suitable for a competition don't you thing :P)

I guess its time to blare the music and put on the coffee, and sleep not till I'm finished my work (not just this either, finish my weeks programing, and everything else (:).

Not too bad kreator. A few crits that I'm sure you're aware of: There's a nasty little jump at the hip joint that needs smoothing, the ankle joint should flex when hitting and lifting off the ground, and his velocity is too low for the rapid movement of his legs. Those missiles could use some propulsion effects, and perhaps some evidence of acceleration. Good progress so far though!

Arik_the_Red, I like the style you're going for! The bronze is reminiscent of steampunk...hmm, reminds me of a certain project that never fully lifted off... ;)

Nice minecraft robot, cooldude234. Whether or not that's your intended effect, he's got style.

TheBlackHole, a better starfield will certainly help. It's got to be animated, so it'd be cool if the camera slowly pans it so that a sun or planet comes into view in the background. Cue some classic orchestral music and you'd be set ;)

Great job folks. We've still got plenty of time in the competition too, how rare!

Finally have a better starfield, but because of the highly subdivided spheres making up the giant robot (and because my computer's a potato) Anim8or sometimes freezes while loading the file.

Wait, BlackHole... Is that a bumpmap, or's that actually modelled??

Okay, I should've learned by now that summer break =/= free time. I'll be out of town for a while and so it'll be hard to work on this challenge. If ever I do, it might be a photo finish. Like most of my usual entries <_<

Reeeeaaaaally bad work flow planning. ><

I know how you feel Janro, that's exactly the situation I have coming up next month when my summer break begins.

Not sure if I should extend the deadline or let it drop. Opinions?

Well it's not like everyone's dying for the next challenge, and there are already a lot of WIPs for this one, so I say extend it to mid-May or somewhere around then. :)
