Tribot Mk.2 Update - Articulation by EbonNebula Tribot Mk.2 Update - Articulation by EbonNebula
Hey guys, just A small update.

I redesigned the wrist and knuckles, so I now have quite a bit more articulation. I'm pretty happy with how that turned out. There's also a bunch of new pistons, because pistons are cruse control for cool. I'm thinking about adding some smallish armor plates on wrist, to beef it up a bit and cover the weak spots.

ALSO, I finished the rigging for the energy blade. I do need to work on the effects for it tho. I had to crank the motion blur way up for it to look half decent, but it seems like too much motion blur for everything else. I won't worry too much about VFX until I get closer to final render.

Questions, comments, criticisms, and other stuff is welcome.

Very good rigging. I like less those "sparks" at the end: too cartoony compared with the style of the model. Anyway, really a good work.

Oops, I confused blades with sparks. Anyway, they look to flat and opaque to me.

Couldn't agree more. Right now the blade effect is crap(and sorta looks like random sparks now that you mention it :| ), but it's sorta low priority.

Yes, pistons are cool, but where are the hydraulic feeds for them? Or are they not exerting mechanical force and just spring-loaded for suspension purposes?

I suppose they could also be electromagnetic and just be powered by hidden wiring.

Actually, I was toying with the idea of running a some wires/tubes just as extra greebling, but I don't know if I would actually connect it to any moving parts. This computer I'm working on right now can barely keep up as it is. It might explode if I add IK chains for each of the pistons.

sooo eeeeerm... suspension with hidden wiring... yeah, lets go with that ;)
...Also, servos. Yeeeeaaaah, servos!

Nothing wrong with servos. And using spring pistons to prevent joint-locking isn't bad either. Plus, they can act as a handy visual "door-stop" to help you keep larger moving parts from colliding or intersecting as they move.

Sadly, most of us private 3D artists can't afford the rendering farms we'd all like to have.
