I love cyber punk very much, but I love Soviet diesel punk even more, it's a pity that one time has already passed, and the other has not started yet
). I decided to make a 3D printing robot model based on the Russian artist Andrey Tkachenko. (He draws very cool art on the theme of diesel punk. You can find his works here
). This robot was chosen, its name is "Skitalec" (in eng. "wanderer"). I do all the work in 3Ds max, although I already understand what I needed to do in Zbrush. This is my first experience in modeling for 3D printing.
The size of the figure will be about 18 centimeters.
All of the modeling I do for turbosmooth.
I hope you will be interested in following the progress of the work.
Unfortunately, there are no references, but I work with the Andrey Tkachenko and he sometimes gives small tips on how and what to do. But still, a lot of things I have to come up with on the go. In some places, I integrated old Soviet spare parts and parts. I'll show you which ones later.
In the future, I hope that we will make a series of works and some of them can even be bought for the collection.
I started by making a Blockout of the model, roughly figuring out where the different elements would be located.
1. And so, I started with the robot's head. I started with simple forms and slowly added detail. Unfortunately, there are no intermediate options, but I'll show you some interesting points in the screenshots below.
the robot has one "eye" and I decided that the Soviet lens "Helios 44M-4" is perfect for this
Another unusual solution, the universal key. it was in every child's bike.
When I finished this head, I realized that for a figure size of 18 centimeters, there is a lot of detail. In the future, I will simplify these forms.
After the head, I moved to the hands. They are the same. It was difficult to understand how the arm was attached to the shoulder. So I temporarily left it as it is.
Several test renderings in Marmoset. Here I was once again convinced that it is necessary to simplify the model for 3D printing as much as possible
All this took me several days of work. Now I started on my feet. They are also the same. If you are interested, I am waiting for your comments and comments!
