Crab mech by kheng Crab mech by kheng
Top one has no texture, just HDRI reflections
Bottom one has Diffuse and Bump Map along with HDRI reflections
This is part of a collab me and DBK are doing, where both of us are modelling the same mech based on a reference picture then creating a scene with the two twins. So keep an eye on DBK for updates!

Hope you like this one

Modelled in 3dsmax
Textures made in Photoshop

I love the pose of the legs for some strange reason.

Reminds me of the Marauder from Battletech.

damn I really need to learn how hdri works

it sounds so simple, yet I don't know anything about it :(

it's time for me to test out more rendering techniques in 3dsmax... any hints? ;)

Nifty. :) I really like the leg/foot design. This REALLY reminds me of a more detailed alienized BattleTech mecha, but I can't place the name. Great stuff. :]

Hm, it might be. The only real similarity is the general shape.

Oh and also, the reflections dont match well. There seems to be shines where the rust is. I suggest making a Spec map aswell.

kheng Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what should the spec map look like?
Reply
:iconkreativemente:
kreativemente Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
Spec map is all gray scale, like the bump map. white spots are the brightest spots and black is no shine at all, grey is in between. So put the white spots over where you want the shines and highlights to be and make it black or dark grey over rust and places where it would be as shiny.
