Tribot Modo Complete

Man, Modo is awesome.  I'm considering on moving from Maya to Modo because of this tutorial.  The workflow feels organic and the quality of the model feels right.  It's 40% off right now, but I don't have a grand to drop.  I'll be making the most of my trial license.  Someday I'll get to have a full license.

Modo Exercise

In prepartaion for the modo challenge, I spent this weekend practicing modo and getting used to the control scehemes.  A friend sent me tutorials and a gumroad page to use as resources, where I found a cool tachikoma-like modeling lesson.  Still need to complete the feet, more details and a render pass, but I think this can be concluded tomorrow.  

I gotta say, after getting used to the setup, Modo is impressive.

The Build Up

I want to make a mech, but I don't have the expeirence yet to crank one out.  So I'm doing smaller hardsurface works before attacking the big one. My next plan is to follow a concept from Deus Ex, and just recreate an arm that has those intricate hardsurface style.  I hope this'll just be a two week adventure, because I plan on entering the MODO challenge.
