Hi guys,

It's been a long time since I posted anything, a lot has happened in my live, but now all seems cool again

Here is just a short video showing my Wall-E running in Maxwell Fire preview window.
It's perfect for setting up a scene, and than start the final production render

and preview screen shot:

    He looks too clean. Is this a new-production WALL-E?
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Hi Dr Lee and Jennifer, thanks! My Wall-E is going to be a brand new just out of the box one.

    That's really impressive work, there. However, I do believe that WALL-E was orange even to begin with. I love those track treads . . .

    Hi Locke,

    Thanks so much, and I totally agree about the color!
    Here is a better one:

    Right now, the yellow/orange bits feel a bit too plasticy...
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Indeed Randy, later on I'll add some nice scratches and stuff, so you can see some metal and rust here and there.
    Here is just another angle:

    maxwell realtime :)

    looks powerfull. but i still think vrayRT is quicker.

    walle looks great. just a detail... if its going to be brand new, shouldnt the caterpillars be brand new as well ? they look rusty and dirty rght now...
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Thanks L2K!

    Nha the tracks should be rusty, like with a new tank, same thing :-)
    And another important point, I like them this way ;-) lol

    I don't know about the rust because when we used to get new tracks for our old M113's they came with a thin factory applied coating that was kind of a greenish colour. We never had rust on any new tracks. Now, if they had been hanging around in the shop for a few months getting shuffled around the coating would wear off in places and it could start to rust a little bit.

    Why are you keeping his eyes turned away from the camera?
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    hehe cool cavebear, I was a chauffeur on a YPR 765 pri back in 1989 with a 25mm gun, and like you say, when stored in the shop they get rusty ;-).

    Hey Jenny, he's got no head at this momen ;-) that's why :-)

    Hey
    Look who's back…
    Glad to know everything is all right.
    How is your eagle?
    Take care!
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Hey Bug! yeah it's been a while, but I really want to finally finish Wall-E, before the second film comes out.....lol....
  • JennyJenny1 Posts: 0Member
    Er... the writer / director has several times said that there won't be a WALL-E sequel.
  • SyklonSyklon0 Posts: 0Member
    Well then, that should give him plenty of time to get this done. Looking great so far.

    I think that the tracks/wheels should be a tad bit bigger.
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Hi Randy, measurements are taken from a highly detailed and accurate model (using a caliper) and also studio scetch drawings :-)
    Here's another update:

    Just a small update on the head base, next is the laser assembly

    Here is a small sketch of what it should look like:

    This sketch is not exactly correct, but it's a good indication

    As you can see here:

    Uhm, Nico . . . WALL-E doesn't have a laser . . .
  • nico-r44nico-r44179 Posts: 157Member
    Hehehe, yes he does ;) just between his eyes
  • LockeFPLockeFP171 Posts: 0Member
    Oh, right! Sorry, didn't remember that part. Got the scale of the drawing confused . . .
