    A little personal project. I wanted to push myself, see what I could do.

    Wow, dude. Is this Cinema 4d?

    Thank you :) Yep, good old C4D. All planned on paper, then assembled bit by bit. The joints all work, or would if I could animate, which I can't...

    Bloody good work Matt!

    3D is really coming on leaps and bounds since I did it at Uni (almost 10 years ago) but for me it was Lightwave all the way.

    Would be great to see the Beetlebot animated though ;o)

    Thanks guys.

    I've never used lightwave, but I gather it's one of the best. My sis, who's a VFX artist, swears by Maya. I sort of stumbled into using C4D and found it more than good enough for what I wanted to do, so I've never felt the need to look elsewhere.

    I'd love to learn how to rig and animate in 3D - if only I had the time...

    About a day and a half. Half a day for research and planning, and then a day for modelling and rendering with a little Photoshop post work for things like the glows.

    Holy Crap, that's ace. It belongs in a sci-fi movie.

    It's actually deceptively simple, but I'm glad you like it :)
