Bahamut v.02 - robot mode by acest Bahamut v.02 - robot mode by acest
This is my transformers version of ''bahamut'' (from the ''final fantasy'' series). It was heavily inspired by ''megatron'' (from the ''transformers'' movie). It's fully rigged and can transform from a tank (vehicle mode) to a mecha (combat mode) and vice versa.

It was originally an old model I've reworked on lately, this time it's optimized and re-textured (unwrapped and painted). The final model contains around 140k polys, using 4x2048x2048 texture sheets, and some procedural maps.

The modeling, unwrapping, rigging, posing & animating all done in 3ds Max. Texture creation and post editing in Photoshop.

Link to the transformation video:

Softwares: 3ds max 2008, Vray 1.5 (stills), Photoshop CS4 (stills), After Effect CS4 (animation).

*edit 09/03/10: Thanks guys for ur supports, grateful this piece make it to DD!! indeed i put a lot of work & time on this one, and i'm still having fun with it!

special thanks for [link] for the suggestion, and [link] for the feature, really appreciate it :)

Bahamut v.02 - robot mode by ~acest. The excellent modelling almost gives an abstract feel to this menacing robot. ( Suggested by ShengDaFlashPRo and Featured by KeremGo )

Wow, this is sooo close to what I see in my head when I write about my transformers stories on fan fic. Ya see, I have this whole new species I made, and the leader of the species transforms into a dragon.
Luckiny, I found this beauty, excellent work, very epic :)
Tho, what would be even more epic is if I saw this guy in dragon form ^-^
