I've started working on a robot that can be hidden inside a soda can. Early days yet, it's starting to shape up, and it's fun.
Neat, it looks kinda like a toy, nice with DoF to add the feeling of small parts. It looks like you could open it, standing it in a position on your table like an action figure. If it should move of its own it may need visible parts that prove its functions to convince the audience ill think. Anyway I like your design and it will be interesting to see the robot coming together.
@robo, thanks, that sort of scale is what I'm hoping to achieve. You're bang on, it will require motors and mechanisms that look like they could convincingly cause motion.
Slight update, just improving the construction of the mechanical parts.
Can't resist the renders ...
Nice, it looking a bit more robust now. Its fun to play around with depth of field and its easy to be a little bit addicted to it but I think a wire-frame shot would be interesting too.
I can resist everything but temptation ...
Funny design, I like it!
but bingo my friend.......will it blend ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfHgJ0Meb6U
Seems really funny! Can't wait for your finished work.
All beautiful things begin with a render farm !
Thanks for the comments people ... all except you Chris ... you and your ... devil hands ... anyhoo ...
I am hoping it will be fun, maybe not funny as such .. but fun
So ... not much done, but here's a few wires.
wooaahhh wires, love wires! :)
It does also look more functional now, I bet the buyer of that soda will get surprised to see that thing come out. Cant think of any other way then bursting that can though.
Devilhands got you quite good there. Of course it will blend the blender. Oo
