Knightmare (Code Geass)
« on: June 12, 2009, 10:12:47 pm »

I am currently working on creating a model of this mecha based on the Lancelot from the anime series Code Geass. The following two images show my current progress using the other two images. Please leave any tips or constructive criticism that may help me complete this project quickly and accurately.

It looks like a very good start. The edges of your render, however, are jagged. You can stop this by turning on the antialiasing feature for rendering. Nice job though and keep posting!

Thanks for the tip. Does this look any better, and can u give any tips on smoothing the edges on the model without adding too many points.

Yes this looks alot better. You can smooth the edges on the model by selecting the edges that are to sharp and using the bevel tool.

Here are some new images of this work in progress. I've worked on the cockpit a little, but the shoulder joints seem a bit off.

Doing an awesome job so far! Suzaku would be proud!;)

I have a question though, are you going to just use different materials for the different colors and whatnot, or are you going to make textures for it? I feel the latter would really make this model stand out...

For now, I just plan to finish the basic frame and weapons. I'll move onto other knightmares and texture them when I've completed enough of them and the environments for a small video game. But don't get your hopes up, this is just the first knightmare frame.

New update: arms are now almost complete. I had too much trouble with the feet, so please leave advice or comments on mechanical joints.
