Here a giant gech type I made for BZII. It's basically one of several models in an animated group that has real weapons that work in BZII. It's equpped with dual cannons and dual guns. Unfortunately, it was made and animated in Truespace, so it doesn't qualify for entry in this project. I thought I'd share it anyways. It has just over 1,000 faces and is done only with in basic material colors; I'm still trying to learn to make custom paint 2d textures.

Tim Christou from Canada asked me to post his Anim8or Robot movie to this forum challenge.

Alright, well, after a revision of what I wanted to do, I decided to go with a bullfrog-ish design. He's no where near done, but luckily, time is my babe right now, so Frogger will be getting done in time if I use it right.

Okay about time I get into this!

... alright it's not too big of an update. Got sidetracked but at least it's a start.

For the most part I intend to paint most of the detail on. I'll use this as a chance to practice painting textures too.

Aw man, Janro, that already looks really sweet, quite close to the concept art!!! But then I guess that means my criteria for something being sweet is dependent on whether I can imagine some sweet stuff I could do to it.

Oh here's a question I forgot to ask.

One of the conditions is that half the work must be done in Anim8or.

But let's say I want to rig and animate and render in Maya while all the modelling is done in An8... is that alright? Cause to me it feels like it's only 1/3rd done in An8- well 1/4th if I count unwrapping/texturing which is done in other programs.

Nice updates guys. ianross, does Tim need a forum account?

davdud101, your robot reminds me of a frog-style walker bot I made ages ago. Will you be animating him as if he was in the Frogger game itself?

Janro, good start. And yes, it's perfectly fine. Basically if a critical part of it was done in Anim8or, then it's ok.

Ippena, if you animate and render it in Anim8or, you can still submit it for this challenge!

Okay- Update time

This is an agonizingly slow pace. Summer break mode hit me for the past few days. Not helping my productive side at all ><

Finally got to continuing this and made the waist joint part. It's not seen in my concept sketch/paint so I had to reimagine how it really is and may work. Hopefully next update would be a little more.

EDIT: okay, started on the thighs. Currently figuring out the knee joint mechanism before proceeding.

Pardon the double post but I wanted to have a clear update.

Legs are done. Feet and Arms to come in next, followed by the head.
