Heres the lovely spiderbot pretty much all finished up =) Im considering adding some blood alphas to the feeding tubes on the face and maybe some bullet decals on the metal plating. Input welcome!

Also rendered shot 3 of our spider attack film. A short action sequence featuring the animation of Mark Nicholas, visual effects of Sean_Rowlands and modeling, texturing and general 'artyness' of myself. Hope to put some stills up soon.

Exterior Sky WIP

So i've spent all day trying to get this right, and while its not quite there yet I think its in a good enough place to leave for the time being. So much to do, so little time!

Environment feedback update

I've updated my interior with a ceiling, magnetic pipe hooks and hopefully screens that now look more like screens and less like posters. Thanks to Sean Rowlands who's been helping with the screen animations.

Any more feedback would be great =)

Interior feedback

Updated some of my interior, mainly the propaganda posters due to 1st submittal feedback. They did look far too clean before...
