Thanks, and (don't laugh) Google Sketchup The most simple 3D modelling software excisting, but I've been using it for over 3 years now, and so far there isn't a single thing that I had in my mind that I could not make in 3D, and it is free (unlike say 3DS Max)

Thanks a lot man And yeah, I know all about that, when I see fan made movies, or my girlfriend's drawings I feel silly. So that's why I started on this project

New update anyway



Added more detail on it, added the pieces where the stabilizing struds are attached to later, starting to look like it
What you guys think?

btw, I upload all the WIP/Completed model stuff at my Deviantart Account:

Third part of my Work in Progress.

I had another version with detail on top it but I accidently removed it, so I've only done detail for the rest so far. I have recovery software working right now to bring it back. (It was over an hour of painstacking circle drawing xD so if I can get it back I am very happy  )

Starting to look nicely if I can say so myself

Those eyes are AWESOME

To me it looks almost ready to have its legs and heat ray attached. What sort of detail are you doing?

If you have time an idea could be a Martian hood smashed from the part where the cannon take down a fighting machine. Damage, like scratches where cannon have just grazed the hood, would look good on them as unlike most the film adaptations they didn't have any forcefields.

Thanks man

And yes, it needs to have a nicely detailed texture, with some dirt and impact hits on it. To make it look more real.

That is my guide, it works a lot, and also I found some High Resolution pictures on the web, most are fan made, but also some pictures from the CGi used during the show.

Also detail I am currently working on are things like the ''circles'' on top (there are 3, I already modelled them but I accidently removed the wrong version I've got recovery software working right now to (hopefully) recover it

And also the Heat Ray, Antennas and the little holes on the side and front. (for Martian screws and nails ) and detail on the underside and everything. I want to have the Hood completed before I start on the legs.

Modelled in Google Sketchup and Rendered in Vray, Astronaut added for scale
