Spot 1.0 by NDKayJah Spot 1.0 by NDKayJah
Completed the rigging of Spot (no geometry has been changed)

Now he's finally finished and can manage all terrain tasks as a commander unit

Rendered in Cinema 4D and then massively touched up in Photoshop... the overall model is still the same as in former versions, I just added several tags for easier animation

Here's a step by step animation of the post production process in photoshop: [link]

Decided to submit the revisited version as an Edit of this one...
Hope you like this better!

Always wondered who and what $spot is? Look no further than Spot 1.0 by ~fatweenie to see that he is really a little robot that we kick around on staff to get just about every task possible done! ( Featured by jark )

Your 3d models are really great :clap:. Can you tell me a few tips about lighting and rendering in cinema 4d? because that`s the most difficult part.

Hi, sieht echt klasse aus. Was mir persönlich nicht so richtig gefallen will, ist die Kopfform. Hätte markanter ausfallen können.
Hast du damit eine animation vor? Würde ich gerne in bewegung sehen.

Great Work!!!

sabotage Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nice! i love the colors and all, the model is cool and its pose, looks dirty and stuff
but u have to put on some reflections i think, would make it look better, and... that circle thing in the middle looks low res :? dunno why
overall good job i love the blue eyes..
Fitzey Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2004
Hey, thats awsome work, i like the occasional blue with the eyes and circle thing, the background goes really well with it 2, in sum spots it looksa like there r more of him behind, love it :+fav:

knshoot Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2004
holy crap man, that is just great....
i dont understand how you people do such a great job on 3d modeling, i could never do long did it take to do that?
krazyjim Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2004
I can't really give constructive critique though, you can't improve on that.
Naraian Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2004
WoW the dust look is realy great!
It takes breathe..

Keep up :-)
audiocrash Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2004
great everything... love the mood, the textures, the colors.... altough the background could be a bit more detailed in a way that you can tell there is something actually back there instead of just abstractness, if thats a word :confused: but maybe im just digging too deep...still looks awesome :calvin:
zmoodel Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2004
Ok, so now I feel ashamed :P This one looks really cool.
Great photoshop skills here :) ; Keep it up!

insomniac199 Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i've seen some awesome modelling in the galleries here. but that has to be the sweetest one to date. unbelievable stuff. +fav and i'm watching u!
blackzer0 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2004
Ah yes, my favorite piece of yours! this is so atmospheric. The background and the dust really settle the mood here. And modeling-wise, it's awesome. Love all those little bumps (armor plates?) all over it.

The pose is realyl cool too, like he's pointing to you, and "your ass is going down."

Love those glowing lights too.

to me, it looks, at the same ttime, with a man steping on the moon for the first time (I mean, that "manly" thing... :giggle:) and also with the "I want you" poster of usa! :D I do, really! I don't know why, tho...

Now, I went over the work again and I suddenly read a comment that said it was the terminator theme and yes, I agree, because it reminds me the film, also.. in fact, it reminds me everyfilm and scene of colonization (does that word exists? I mean, english is not my native language, so I'm sorry...) and war!

And talking about terminator, just when I eard that word I automatically associate with those suspense and horror movies sound tracks and star to feel funny, almost like a nightmare, but I'm awake and here it's day!

I'm also very fond of this robot (?) design, it's kinda like the :fella: !!! :) Very apropriatte to DA, I think! :) and the golden tone is allways such an eye-candy... And I don't know where I've got the info about it, but it was tested, and the most likeable tone is golden, you knew?

btw, I said all of this before reading the description and, then, seeing that this was a daily feature! :blush: Oh my.. and with reasons for it! I've just saw the link to it in a journal of a group of critique and decided to check it...

NDKayJah Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
hey thanks a lot for the comment... means a lot to me, that you took the time...
didn't know about golden tones being the most popular... woulda guessed, that it's the blue ones...
It's also cool, that you mentioned what associations you had when looking at it and thinking about it!
Helewidis Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2004   Photographer
Yes, blue is popular too, but I was talking about golden being popular in images... blue is popular into "real world" (at least that's how I've understood it)! ;)
No problem, fatweenie. In fact, I saw you being sad about this deviation's comments being (90% of it) of those "quickies" (how I call them) and I decided to take a look. :glomp:

bye, then! :wave:
