Software used:

I wanted the robot to have freedom of movement in 3D space, as if it were entirely independent. For this purpose I created several reactors at the lower and behind. However I also added increasing elements of old technology, such as the battery cover, RCA, switches, and LEDs (Fig.06).

I used simple polygon modeling, just extruding face by face for the entire model, and then put the Turbosmooth modifier on top of the whole piece. When the model was finished I created a simple rig so that every moving part could be animated, including the iris inside the lens (Fig.07).

Once the model and rig were completed, I started working on the materials and lighting. I wanted to simulate an interior as a place, and for this purpose I took a photo of a window in my workplace. I just did a shot in RAW (14-bit was more than enough) and didn't have to create an HDRI as it was enough for me use distant lights to simulate the light coming from the window (Fig.08).

I used two V-Ray planar lights with the window image like a map projection and did some neutral test lighting (Fig.09).
