TMR Update

Well, I couldn't help myself. I decided to just rebuild the rig it had. Not entirely from scratch, as the joints I left from the first rig were still useful. A lot of the old controls will probably be broken though, since the deformers they used to control aren't there anymore. It's looking good so far though, now that there are a few more extra movement directions for the clamps, and the hierarchy chain doesn't look like a tornado struck. I did leave the aperture in the eye alone though, since it would take way to many joints in that small region to recreate what was already there. Kind of a nice break from the Prowler. I'll either work on that or switch over to the lightsaber again next week.

Decided to change things up and retexture the TMR using mental ray and trying out the mr lights. So far I've only used a portal light for overhead. Gonna add the remaining 5 for the display boards, and probably make a new environment for it.

The Hunt

After some time, the car spot is finally done. Most would be happy, but me being me, I know there is always room to improve. What little animation I had done for this project essentially got cut since there was quite the laundry list of issues with the scene. Oh well, such is life. Anyway, I posted it at my site for now, so go ahead and take a looksy. The original drive off animation can be found here.
