V2

V2 Back Detail

Original V1

Please post comments and suggestions so that I can improve the model. I'm going for a semi-realistic/cartoon style, so I'm not trying to make it match the set perfectly, just appropriate proportions and detail mainly.  :classic:

Lol, this is quite cool, I just showed it to a bionicle designer, and we had a laugh.
The design you really nailed quite well is that of the weapon.
You did not manage to get the shape of the mask right though.

I modelled the mask using an official side-on graphic of the 2008 Ignika, and the front using another 2008 graphic. I presume the 2009 Ignika is more rounded isn't it?

As for the weapon, there was a very good front view of it in the Desert of Danger picture novel, so that made it much easier to make.  :laugh:

yep, it's a new mask design, smaller, more sleek and rounded at the back. But we will see close up pictures really soon. In your rendered picture, his forehead looks a bit to low, and the eyes are not as wide and slim as in the real set.

I wonder what kind of software you use ? Unfortunately I'm not able to share the true 3D files with you :-)

btw. I think you are using the wrong black arms.

...and, when I said we had a laugh, it was not because we thought your model looked silly, it was more because it was amazing to see someone having a go at modeling the new set. The Designer actually asked me where "you" had that model from, until he had a closer look and realised that it was not the "real" thing.

I've been using 3DS Max 9.

Pity about those files, because they'd make my day ten times over.  :cry_happy:

With the arms, I was just being lazy and I reused them from my previous Gresh model, as well as all the character models in my BZP ST5 Entry.  :laugh:

Well this looks fantastic. In fact, this wouldn't be bad as Mata Nui's Glatorian Arena model. You have skills.

These are really nice renderings :thumbup:
Though I'd like it if you were to resize the pics to a somewhat smaller size :classic:
800x600 is more than enough and if you want to share better images, you can always link to a folder with high resolution pictures.
If you have any doubts on how to resize and stuff like that, just follow the link in my signature below.

Again great work :thumbup:
