The first time I watched Brazil by Terry Gilliam, I was so excited that I wanted to life in that town. I was affected by the technology that people were using, the difference in computers, transport, weapons, architecture and even dress styles. This technology, despite its gravity, made me laugh sometimes and I enjoyed all of the components which I'd never experienced in other movies. For me this style and level of technology was so lovable and amazing that I watched it several times.
Since childhood I've been crazy about robots and I've always wanted to design one. This movie motivated me a lot and gave me some cool ideas (Fig.01).
Concept & Modeling
I started by practicing with geometric objects, but no concept drawing on the paper. As a child I always wanted to have a robot that could help me to do my jobs, so I decided to make a worker robot with a bow waist, like a humpback. In this step I used spherical objects and started the robot based on a sphere and a hemisphere. I constructed a general structure and then I inserted details step by step (Fig.02).
Here I converted the sphere to Editable Poly and then started modeling (Fig.03 – 04).
After modeling the body I started to work on some details (Fig.05 – 06).
