Cambot 406

By uoa7
1K Favourites
Cambot, short for Camera Robot, is a type of robot that will go around and shoot photos under its owner's command. 
NO. 406, however, had a glitch when it was made. It doesn't follow orders, and instead, it likes taking photos of things it finds interesting.
It is now looking at a photo of something it profoundly misses, and yet as a robot, there's no way for it to express the feeling.
However, the rain trails running down its "face" kinda tell everything...

Software used: Maya, Mari, Zbrush, Nuke. 
I put up a WIP page on my website if anyone wants to know my workflow for this piece:

I don't know if you've already been told but this gorgeous picture of yours inspired a beautiful story over on the Writing Prompts Reddit: www.reddit.com/r/WritingPrompt…
Between your digital art and that user's writing I don't think I've ever felt so attached to a robot since I saw Wall-E.  You did beautiful work here and it inspired something beautiful from someone else. Well done to you!

Did you use ZBrush to texture the robot? I'm not too familiar with Mari and Nuke. But I do use Maya and am looking for ways to improve the quality of the textures. Any advice for someone just starting out?

I used Mari to do the texturing. 
In terms of advice...keep learning and practicing :)
