The colors are still a work in progress, but this is the finalized design for my robot. For 3D class at LASALLE, Singapore. To be rendered in Maya.
You remember that small rant I had about my techer not allowing me to do something related to Stargate?
Well as it turns out similarities in design to Stargate wasn't his problem at all - the designs I presented to him simply didn't make sense. I wanted to do something related to the Egyptian Gods, and so I was designing Sobek-harvester robots who used sickles, whereas an Egyptian civilization with access to such superior technology would surely have been able to come up with a much more creative and efficient design to work their fields. When I sarcastically mentioned that my first idea was a robot who's only function was to "look pretty" while standing guard outside the temple of his respective deity, he asked me why I didn't just do that.Durp.
Back to my first idea, and I guess what you could consider some more development for that "New Cairo" thing I began work on some months back: [link]
May I present the Horus Guardian - one of many patrolling and guarding the main temple wherin resides the High Priests and Priestesses of New Cairo. While they are by no means defenseless, their primary purpose is to proudly represent the God Horus, and are not built for speed or intense combat.
Those are better left to the Anubis Hounds. But I'm a sucker for avians so I did Horus. Also drawing the large, cartoony, and colored robot was not a requirement for this assignment, but I wanted to see how it looks and now I weep inside to think that those wonderful, bendy curves will be butchered in 3D. I think he looks better 2D. As do most characters, Disney!--Sak
