Hey people, I've been working on this for the past few days, it's a concept from Panchokworkshop.com I picked this piece because the shape is interesting, and it has many mechanical parts, which is new to me.
Oh yea, the arms are removable.
This is looking cool. Thats a lot of detail in the belly region! These are a lot of work aren't they. Keep us updated with more wips.

Looking good. The detail in the belly is impressive!
I've been thinking about trying a bit of mecha for my next piece, anything i should keep in mind for it?
Every cloud has a silver lining; except for the mushroom shaped ones, which have a lining of Iridium and Strontium 90

hey thanks for all the comments.
Jimmi_B, there are a ton of stuff to look out for. Some major ones I came across was keeping some of the edges straight, sharp, and smooth. I plan on sanding some of the smooth surface down after it's baked.
Then theres the wires, mechanics, those also have to be smooth. I would pay attention which wires go on top, which one sits higher etc... This adds a lot of dimension. I had to redo the body because I just slapped everything on at once, and then it looked flat. So I would advise working on the base layer then add stuff on top.
Lookin sweet Taurn! Sculpting machines scares me but I need to practice it as well!! Keep on bringing it! BTW have you done a preliminary bake? Messing up all that detail would scare the shit out of me...
I like where this is going! Are you planning to make a kit out of this?
Just a small update..
maddmaestro, I have not baked it yet, because I'm afraid I might melt the bb's. hehe! It is a pain because I have smudged some parts and had to redo it. It's a bigger pain because I will be transporting this to school and back.
elemidi, I have not made any kits yet, but I'm gonna do more research on molding and casting and experiment with this guy.
This is looking great Taurn7
Loads of detail,and some good sharp edges.
The stomach area is looking fantastic
looking forward to seeing more
very nice hard surface details and blocking mate .......keep it up
This is one hell of a piece, the hand is very impressive along with all the other intricate details. Nice work.
This is looking great, do more me wants updates!
I dont think you'd melt the BB's in the oven if you bake him low like 95 degrees C.
But totally agree it's a calculated risk, just think you'd love not smudging bits
Really good work!!
What do you use maya for? The design stage?
Hey guys, I started over on the legs, again... but I bought a tool that actually shaves clay smoothly! I wish I got that sooner.
Tayari, the Maya was for a school project, nothing for the Battle Mobile. I guess you use Maya too?
I used to use maya, I switched to cinema4d. Lot cheaper and much easier to work with. I do not need the precision or control of maya for my work.
The legs are cooked, now sanding. Then the arms and base.
Amazeing! I'ma go study now.
Thanks guys, I finished the arms, and made the base. Just need to work on the gun and do some finishing touches. I'll have some updates soon.
Dude! that is just jaw dropping amazing! I would have that right at the front door greatng ppl.
