cyborg woman – 07

today, i noticed that my nice uv-layout was not working for the cables, as these were still one part with array and curve modifiers. this made a mess when i tried baking ambient occlusion map 😦 … so, i had to rework these 😦 … but i succeded 🙂 and here is a first test with texture for the metal parts… not sure, it looks too much like plastic, it should read as metal…

  1. Hi Doris…first of all …I continue to admire your prolific artistic energy output.
    My humble opinion:
    I don’t feel its too dark at all, but perhaps a bit dull? It is at risk looking like a plastic toy at Toys ‘R Us store. http://nerdwarspodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/NEC12402-2.jpg
    Perhaps too clean, too perfect is what makes it look toy-ish. Perhaps work in a little dirt and scratches, oil leak, etc. http://digital-art-gallery.com/oid/49/r169_457x257_9552_Dirty_Robot_3d_sci_fi_robot_picture_image_digital_art.jpg

    On the other extreme is making the material high gloss and clean: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=41311122…more specularity on the cables?

    I also think the locking mechanism for the shoulder pads conjures up ancient chicken barn technology http://chickensintheroad.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_6824.jpg

    Please don’t be upset at my comments…I’m only brainstorming… 🙂

    • i am not upset at all, mark, quite the contrary, i am happy for receiving your input 🙂
      yes, scratches and a little dirt is good, and, i must admit, i changed the colorscheme already, i did not want so cold look… hehe, chicken barn, lol,, but i like them, so maybe she keeps them as memory to long forgotten time… 😉 big thanks for your input, i very appreciate it 🙂
