Cannoneer WIP3 by Shimmering-Sword Cannoneer WIP3 by Shimmering-Sword
***
Sorry being a bit spammy updating so soon, really I shouldn't have shown that last shot.
Heres a view of the back, where you can see the massive magazines, some progress on cooling systems, and more lacking areas :D
I threw in the cannon rounds and a soldier to show the scale of things. Outrageous rounds eh XD I'll probably scale em down a little.
***

Heres something I've been working on (or had shelved) for many months. Now with my new computer fully completed I'm picking up a little 3D again.
This is going to take a long time to complete, so heres a preview.

Cannoneer - Juggernaut artillery mech.
Almost as massive as the SMR Behemoth, the Cannoneer mount massive artillery cannons that can fire a multitude of munitions. Designed in parallel to the SMR, intended to fulfill the same role of open ground control but at far less cost, allowing for less limited production.

x4 naval scale high velocity cannons
x4 high cycle heavy lasers
x2 9tube heavy missile launchers
- various point defense turrets
- large sensor array and spotter drones acquire targets

Maya and 3D in general is awesome, if only I had time for it along with my illustration.

Cool!

Do you know if it's similar to 3ds Max, or Gmax for that matter? I know it's nothing like Z-Brush.

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Many things Maya and 3DMax are the same, at least concept wise, building objects via points and edges connecting them. Most 3D apps are that way. Zbrush is different in that it builds objects through sculpting with brushing, not by pulling around the points with a mouse.

Thanks for the info! I've got ZBrush but suck at sculpting. I only get as far as z speheres and then I just call it quits. I'll try to get a demo of maya or 3DMax and try my hand at the points and egdes.

I don't know if I'm asking the right way, but from past experience the only thing I've ever done with 3Dmax was making shapes, and then beveling the sides to what I desired. Is that the same as the "points and edges" you were mentioning? Points and edges sounds a lot simpler than beveling geometry ^^;

You do a lot of "face cutting" and "extruding" but you will have to learn some complex techniques to achieve certain precise results.

Your zsphere models look good, i always got frustrated using that base modeling process, and would make the basic shapes in maya instead. If you don't have a wacom tablet, zbrush isn't going to work too well. If you do, zbrush is the best program for character modeling, you can do nice low poly work in maya/max, but zbrush is the only way to make super detailed work. If you want to make your characters animated you need to master both though.

Cool! Thanks for the advice! I figured I'd have to end up learning both of them somehow.. X]

I heard that Zbrush is the way to go for wacom users too (luckily I have one).

As always, I appreciate the time you spent helping me with my questions!

Reminds me of this behemoth, from Macross/Robotech: The MAC II aka MONSTER

Or if you like advanced versions here are two versions of the MAC: [link] [link]

The funniest thing watching the series when we first see this big thing step forward and the deck buckles underneath the weight of it.

Yet another design that BT stole (somewhat) :D
It's a cool design, but I wont try "3rd times the charm", so not quads of top cannons from me :P

Lookin' good! It is perfect how it is, but why not add some colour to make it more striking?

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I can't add any color until all the modeling is done (a 3d workflow limitation). Some areas are close to done, but others are very incomplete.
I can pull this off, but it's way beyond my practical rate of progress. It's just like a newbie putting in massive time to make a great painting, do-able but not professionally practical.

im afraid my dear the mech will not stand the legs are too thin and would crumple as soon as docking restraints were removed its simalar to the stone rhino battle mech in a sence but it had a thicker leg set to support the wieght

Putting this much hardware on 2 legs in the first place is ridiculous, I'm taking a bit of artistic freedom here :D
The legs (especially the lowest parts) are being bulked up though, if it makes you feel any safer standing under it.

Something else you could do is quad it. Would reduce the weight problem, and also be effective at stoping the kickback from toppling it.

After all, what if you want to fire all four cannon at once?

I can't say much on mech design from a practicality sort of standpoint, since it's never been my strong point but it's lookin' very believable indeed; your mech design's always cool :D

Kind of you to stop by man. Your mech work is pretty badass in itself, so I'd say you have some authority on the subject.
