Wow, animation this time? Yeeps, I'm really going to be stretching my artistic legs.
Well, at least it's robots, I think I grok rigid animation in theory.

After a few hours drawing and modelling today, here are the first pieces of my robot ... Still a very big lot of work to get the result I want but I think I'll have more time next week (this week, I was in Germany for my job).

Now this is a topic I'm quite fond of. I shall put my thinking cap on and try to come up with something. Provided I can find time amid thesis, I'll join this challenge.

[P.S. Hi guys! Long time no see. xD]

Great choice Raxx, this looks like a fun one for people of all skills I think - non organic comps are the way to go maybe? Now if only we could get that dang registration thing fixed...

Nice start guys, it's starting to look like a garage full of robot parts in here ;)

Well, I'll add my own. Mine's a poor start, I'm feeling out a bit of modeling in Autodesk Inventor so that I can make the parts printable and the joints work in real life, so this arm is the first test. If I continue using that software, I'll probably use it only for the moving parts and then do the rest in Anim8or...

As for the registration deal...well I have a feeling that'll get fixed soon :)

Very nice ideas to see here! It's now time to me to stop work, and go back to anim8or :D (for my boss: if you read this, my work is already done ;D). I hope I'll have time to finish something...

Whoa, Arik, that looks great, even if it's only that one piece!
And Raxx, it's a sweet start, and seeing that that's just the beginning, I can't wait to see it when it's finished!
 
Here's my (almost) latest work.
(See a couple posts ahead.)

As you can see, I pretty much ditched the entire 'fat robot' design  in favor of a bit sleeker, more defined body. Looks better, although the head doesn't seem to fit quite right...

Oh, yeah, Raxx, I wanted to ask, based on the quite minimal rules to this challenge, could I use programs like After Effects to do stuff like motion blur, bullet, hits, etc?

Lookin' good so far davdud101. The head suits the body fine, in my opinion, though if by "fit" you meant meshing, then I suppose it might not be 100%

As for post-processing in programs like After Effects, there is nothing wrong with using that in this challenge.
