I love the concept and the overal design of this piece. However, I feel that the angle of the shot could be reworked a little bit to give a better angle of the machine, otherwise, I love it. I love the concept of merging both of my favorite worlds, Transformers and Ironman.

Hey! The new updates rocks, they really pops out the head even more!I'm looking forward to your final entry! And you should post some close ups here on this thread if you have the time. I would be curious what you have there.I was thinking, and maybe a huge text should say "This is the HEAD" with an arrow from it, so if anytime a goat or a dog looks at it, even he will now where the head is!:D

Tarik2d (Forums) on Wed, 14 July 2010 2:31pm
His left arm is going to be blured a bit as its in the background and it is pressed up against the wall above him
Destrega (Forums)
Destrega (Forums) on Wed, 14 July 2010 2:29pm
Better. But what do you think of turning his left hand a bit towards the viewer that we can easisly recognize fingers - then the viewer know at once that this is no head right now we mainly see the thumb and one finger, which also could be a screaming mouth.

Destrega (Forums)
Destrega (Forums) on Wed, 14 July 2010 9:56am
I think it helps maybe a little bit, but all in all (as I told you yesterday) I think people who see this the first time will have diffculties understanding this whole body. When a viewer has no idea what is what the first idea is to think the the highest part (in this case his left arm) is the head part. So because you have a very confusing metal structure (dont get me wrong, it looks cool:) ) you should refer to a more simple pose, or change the camera angle, that his head is the highest position. Just as you did on the first post you showed him in the environment, he stood there only without a pose. And nobody had problems understanding the body structure. This problem is also common to the real transformers, its also sometimes hard to see what is what:)

Paulius-st (Forums) on Tue, 13 July 2010 11:51pm
first, i would like to say that it comes along nicely. i realy like the design and where it goes.great job.about these neck armor plates - to think rationaly it would be essential and necessary but to think from the artistic point of view i would not tuch the neck. the whole desing is heavy enough and with these plates it would be hard to recognise the head in this whole pile of metal. i would suggest to scale up a little bit the head and to pose the neck and head more forward and down. i doodled a little bit in ps about what i meen.well thats my opinion about it and hope it helps or give more ideas :)good luck :)

Tarik2d (Forums) on Tue, 13 July 2010 10:16pm
OK, cheers CLP I try to look into changing the head. I was thinking maybe having a couple of neck armour plates in a different colour to brake up the body from the head. also the eye will come into play soon.more crits the better, thanks
CLP (Forums)
CLP (Forums) on Tue, 13 July 2010 9:49pm
i think his right arm is better, can see it easily now but i think his head still gets a bit lost. Perhaps you could try somethin that last transformer's reference pic has done [i dunno the transformers name lol] and texture the neck area a much darker colour or have a brighter and mroe saturated head?dunno if thatll look good though.

i agree with a lot thats been said already really so i wasnt guna comment til ur render is up but what the hey lol. :)i think basically u need to distinguish the limbs from the torso in some way. it looks really actiony right now which is super cool and would look even better as a movieclip but thats not practical right now, i think?so like those pics LemonW posted i think just some kind of ready pose would be coollikin the textures btw ;p

Zlatovous (Forums)
Zlatovous (Forums) on Tue, 13 July 2010 2:19pm
Well, I can but after long staring at it. The problem with transformers is that while in action they are very hard to recognize which part is what. This is partially solved while seeing them in motion - you can easily understand that for say this part is hand because he punched the other autobot. But when stopped in motion, to still image and without defined strong pose, it's hard to see and understand what they do. And that's the problem with your image too. I am still not sure what he is doing - looking at something, avoiding shots, trying to tear that building down? Try to make it more obvious. Unfortunately I can't tell you what to do exactly to make it better since I am not sure where you are heading at. But I am sure you will come up with something

cheers wil_himura, yeah I know what you mean, thats why I dont want to much rust and stuff but just to look like a worn and torn iron man, if that makes sense

Wil_himura (Forums) on Thu, 01 July 2010 9:14pm
I think it works pretty well with the transformers part. Transformers are more rusty while Iron Man gets a brand new armor everytime he goes out to have a walk :P It also depends on the plan you got for him/it(both robots right? hehe)Great work with the scratches tho, I think it would work anyways.Regds

Tarik2d (Forums) on Thu, 01 July 2010 8:07pm
Dont get me wrong Im not comparing the quality from the iron man film but what do you think for the level of scratches and stuff? I'll carry on once i get a few opinions from you lot. its only a small sample but its all i have textured so far.Cheers

@ chichiri - cheers :)@CG he is autobots, got to be. Well, What I was planning for the long run was to have a small iron man inside, sort of like a headmaster but if i get time for that...well lolLuving the idea about the logo :) size wise he is bit bigger than iron hide but not much. Yeah sure i/ll put a person in for scale later on
ClassicGamer-3DT (Forums)
ClassicGamer-3DT (Forums) on Wed, 30 June 2010 2:32pm
Oh now that's better now we've got a little bit of colour going on the model, so just how big is he gonna be? He looks massive, will you add a human for scale comparisons at all? Is he bigger than Megatron for instance....and most importantly which side is he? Autobot or Decepticon? either will need the corresponding logo on the chest of upper shoulder/arm section. Looks like the arms would looks great if they were massive maybe made from trucks or something is you wanted to take this guy super huge :)Keep going you're doing brilliant here.Kind RegardsCG.

there are some sharp edges in there but I'll let you be the judge of that like you say when I get some renders off
CLP (Forums)
CLP (Forums) on Mon, 28 June 2010 8:55pm
i like the head but i think theres not enough angles or rather not enough sharp angles and edges to be ironman/transformery lol. At the moment what it reminds me of, aside from the obvious transformers influence, is stuff like gundam or macross. might be just lack of colours and specular though which means edges arent accentuated. i should probably wait for a render like that first lol.anyways, a couple of weeks to go. are u doin a vid? cos u sed you were animating?
Tarik2d (Forums)
Tarik2d (Forums) on Mon, 28 June 2010 8:41pm
Im modeling the small arm tonight. Yeah I decided against doing them all the same. I am doing a small set of arms at the front that fit into the larger ones at the back, well thats the plan. I'm not doing the legs, its just going to but a top shot. Hopefully I'll get it done in time :)

I have never like the design of 4 arms, might look good if they are completely different. But never when they are the same.. So I say skip that, but's thats me.You also need to step it up. I would like to see this finished and in this rate I doubt that you will.

Hi,Here is an update, the head is nearly done for now, I mgiht comeback and add a few more details. The body shot, ive decided to try and get two types of arms modeled. There are the small ones here then there will be larger arms in his back that fold out and that the smaller ones fit into and control. I want him to look intelligent as well. The float thing on his shoulder is J.A.R.V.I.S rather than just a voice he is actaully part of the machine.

is it possible for a shot, where you include all your existing elements, with a little explanation next to them?I'm a bit confused which of your images shows what, and where are they on the final model.other then that, all of the pieces looks awesome (as i said earlier :D )

Would be cool to see some cool lines around that white circle :). Neat modeling, not sure about the hardness on the horizontal lines in the middle there...

Cheers, yeah the chest peice would be a good idea :)I have the white glow, the circle and the white line, the peices round his waist, resemble the suitcase armour, plus there is the head to come ;)

Cordero (Forums) on Thu, 10 June 2010 10:53pm
cool looking so far, but i don't really see any resemblance with ironman. You might need to add more thing in common with ironman on top of the painting. maybe the core from his chest, or the cool looking leg piece.

Gauravcg (Forums) on Mon, 07 June 2010 8:32pm
i just found something about it.... look for a .bak file in the default max folder or where you saved your file....rename .bak to .max it might work .....hope this helps!or you might try unloading some plugins......i can feel your pain! :|
