T-Rex with Robotic Limbs (D18)

cyborg-dino-doodle

A T-rex with firey feathers and robotic appendages. Nothing is more epic.

Painting in mass instead of line has really helped me loosen up. My mass sketches look better then my line sketchs. I think it’s because I can focus more on the shapes then the contours. I need to keep pushing myself to improve.

Spider Coffee Bot v2 – ‘The Rhino Strikes Back’

Need a robot that will slay your enemies and bring you coffee at the same time? Introducing the coffee bot: All machine, All caffeine. I made this model to be 3d printed.

The previous model I made with Rhino 3d only printed 3 parts, the dish, a couple legs and the head. I don’t know what happened but I’m too frustrated with Rhino to mess with it anymore. It’s probably not rhino’s fault, but my inexperience with CAD based NURBs modelers. The model was remade from scratch using Blender. It took about 4 hours to make this. It is a solid single mesh.  With a few minor adjustments to the legs,  this thing could be animated.

I’m much happier with the remake and I’m %100 confident that it print out correctly.

Coffee Spider Bot 3d Model WIP

coffeebotmodelwip

Here is the 3d model I made, using a NURBs based modeler called Rhino 5. The coffee spider robot is almost ready to serve its brew to the masses.

I’ve been a polygon modeler and have done very little with NURBs ( I would use them mostly for lofts and then convert them to polygons). They feel so foreign to me. After 5 hours of figuring this stuff out, I was able to assemble this 3d model.  If this was a poly model, it would be twice as detailed but I’m required to use NURBs for this assignment so I’m feeling a little crippled right at the moment. I’m required to use Rhino for this project so I have no choice. I have no doubt that Rhino is a powerful tool, I just don’t know how to do everything with it.

The spider bot should make a fine sculpture when it is 3d printed.

The Coffee Spider Bot (Concept art)

coffespider

Concept Art for the coffee spider bot. This robot delivers coffee in seconds will satisfy all you coffee needs.

This concept art is for a 3d printing project. I needed to create a machine that would be too impractical. A ginormous robot spider that’s sole purpose is to make and deliver coffee fits the bill.

The 3d model is almost done. I will upload it soon.

I finally got my spaceship 3d printed, I will upload some photos soon.

Robot Girl Failure + 100 Character Challenge

robot-concept-10-29

Daily Doodle for Wednesday. I tried my hand at a robot assassin but It didn’t turn out that well. I have decided that the daily doodle is not working for me. First I doodle on paper every day. Sometimes for hours. Frankly I’m just too lazy to scan and upload it here. so its redundant. As an artist I need to change focus if something is not working. So I am changing it into the 100 Character Challenge. I feel my humanoid character designs could use a shot in the arm. I discovered on DeviantArt there is literally thousands of stock images of people in costumes and in various poses that artist can use for reference. I will be using these as practice. Sometimes I will make a character similar to the stock image, other times I will use it to jump start my imagination. So I will give myself 1 to 2 hours a day to work on this. 2 days total for each character. In .. color or B&W. I’m optimistic this will help me with designing costumes and posing characters. I project this will take 6 months to complete. if this doesn’t work after a month, I will just find another daily practice routine like I did with the 21 Day Challenge.
