[WIP]Platform Robot

on: April 30, 2008, 07:37:37 am
Hey guys.  I'm working on this robot for a platformer.  I definitely need some help.  Any big problems you guys see? 



Thanks,
Riley

Made a Rough edit to show some things that could help.

It's mostly your A.A that needs work.

I'd like to see him a little shinier. Here's a very quick edit:



Unless your intention is to make him look like old metal. But even in that case I think he needs to look a little bit more like metal.

I like the edits. The reflected light off of the bottom of monteboyd's really helps the metallic look and I Am Uh's edit helps to round out the eye and left foot a bit more.

The only other big thing that I see is that his eye appears to be a little too far to the right side of his body (assuming that his eye is supposed to be centered). Alternatively, his right arm may be a bit too far forward on his body.

It actually reminds me a bit of the robots from the later sections of EarthBound.
