    Robot

    I'm trying to make a robot who would be used in a commercial to present some products. It has to look emotional, robot outside but human inside. These are some shots.

    Looks like your going for the "I-Robot" look. Nice so far.

    Yes, I am going for the I-robot look. I really didn't know how to make her face look human using some kind of plastic or metal as a material. Since she has to make facial expressions the only logical thing was to make her face out of silicon like in the movie.

    While I was looking at the picture my seven year old brother comes up beside me and says "What are you making? Something from I, Robot?"
    So you must have done something right
    The only crit I have at the moment is that in the picture where you can see the shoulders the head seems to be floating. It may be just me, but my brain doesn't put the head and shoulders together with the metal and tubes to make one complete object.
    Nice work so far though

    Haha, Looking GOOD! Great work on that robot. My only suggestion is that you make the eyes close at a little more natural angle, right now they are pointed down so much that it looks a little unnatural (then again its a robot). good work!

    @jackman - thanks, yes I have seen the video by bjork and I love it. It was one of my research videos for this project so I have made similar skull design when you look at it from the profile. ( see atached video )

    @Skinner3D - thanks, yes I am aware that there is not much going on in the neck area, should have put more stuff in it but don't have time. See the animation, maybe the head sticks better when in motion. I don't know.

    @StevieB - thanks, have you noticed that the eyelids are just a little bit transparent at the their rim ? You can see the eyeball through there. I thought it would be a nice touch since her face is made out of silicon. I have used Sigma II material for her face. It is a very fast SSS shader in 9.3.

    There is a test animation of her in black design (hopefully in the next post since I am having trouble uploading it) but the client didn't like her that way so I went with white which is a shame since all humanoids are white and black would be more interesting. Also you can see a part of final animation where she is presenting some products behind a panel. There is a lot going on on the panel so you don't actually pay much attention to her while she is behind it. I will post final work when the commercial is on air.

    W0W, Impressive! It was very nice when the head turned around and you could see all the electric lights. HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU DO THAT!!! Haha, seriously though I want to know (if you know any tutorials for how to animate lights [as in turning off and on] please send me there)!

    Great Job, and fantastic detailing!

    Right click and save target as... When the requester comes up you will see it ends in .htm, change it to .mov and you'll be able to play it when it's downloaded.
