Spider Mech by Councilor Spider Mech by Councilor
Alright, i dont know if this thing fits into vehicle category or not, but it seems deviantart doesnt have "automated mechanized object" category, so i'll just put it here. This mech is a composite of Spider, Scorpion, Turtle, and Eagle. The head is eagle (although it looked like an alien, but my original concept is an eagle), the body is turtle (spiked one, yeah!), tail and hand are scorpion (the hand was converted into a weapon pylon), and the legs are spider. This is my work from 2 years ago, now I re-render this thing with new rendering system.

Not too shabby at all. Could pass for a new variant Chaos Scorpion! (WARHAMMER 40,000)

it looks like you got a bunch of spheres, textured them and stretched them.
if anything it looks like a concept for the old Beast Wars. Pre-production

you need to flesh out your ideas more and blend parts together better.
the silhouette is there but its lacking.

I hope it helps, don't mean to be hard but sometimes you need honest feedback.

Don't worry about it. It's quite an old stuff, the ones from my earliest when my modeling techniques is still flawed.

Looks like a cross between Skitters, Mechs, and Crawlies all in one from Falling Skies. Individually those enemies are bad enough, Crawlies coming in swarms, but put all three into one, the 2nd Mass wouldn't stand a chance, even with mech metal projectiles in their weapons.

It's a great series to say the least, I've been making comic style imagery for the series myself lately, including random individuals as well as my original character's image which has his bio attached to it. I'm adding another one right now, it's a scene from my character's own bio, one of those fights he really believed was his last.

Hey one of my friends is asking if ever you do comissions, and wanted a mechanical version of a mecha godzilla, in a style like that spider mech. Props!
Reply
:iconcouncilor:
Councilor Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
I might be able to, but my commision price will be relatively high since I needs to build the 3d model, and right now I'm so busy with the projects, so I don't think I'll be able to manage it.

Thank you for contacting, by the way :)

This reminds me of the old "Descent" series of games (Up until "Descent 3") for some reason. Perhaps the textures from Quake were very similar.

:iconcouncilor:
Councilor Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2009
Maybe.

I wonder if there's next series of descent... but I think there won't be any.

Well they did have one that was in space and made for multiplayer. But it didn't look like descent to me... Ah well. be sweet if they did though.

Nice usage of Quake 3 textures ;) Good render though :)
Reply
:iconcouncilor:
Councilor Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
Thanks. However no matter how nice the usage is, it still feel a little off with the model, well that's what to be expected though. It's not a texture intended for that model.

Muhalovka Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2008
Wow, just amazing how you've managed to apply the texture. The skin colour and all that is very interesting that is also simulated by pretty smooth bump-maps, and slightly corrupted by some seamfull texture like the one on its head, you have still managed to make an appealing model composition.

All i have to say is this thing reminds me of NOD from C&C, i mean its a scorpion and its all red, pure nod, except the eagle thing, that wouldnt fly lol

The eagle part doesn't have to be able to fly :D eagle's beak is another feature of an eagle though... It's pretty harmful :D

Thanks. Maybe which makes it like NOD is the color schemes. NOD usually uses black & red color schemes, so it should match with my spider :)

Thanks for the comments guys, but looks like i've done with this thing, maybe i'll try to upgrade it with normal map textures but looks like i wont change the model anyway.
