approximately 1 hours work in 3ds max 2014 (i need to keep better timer records).
The past few days have found me writing alot of Pacific rim fan fiction ideas. tonight however i took these ideas and make quick sketches of four of my Jaeger designs and two of the Kaiju (I will upload these later). after sketching them i decided to try my hand at once again rapidly modeling a quick version of them in max. this tiem however it came out quite successful!
This is Taronga’s Revenge, a Mk.2 Australian Jaeger. Commissioned after the 4th Kaiju incursion. On September 2nd, 2014, Scissure attacked and devastated the northern parts of Sydney, only being finally defeated by a second nuclear missile. As a result the northern part of the city was quarantined off due to Nuclear radiation and the toxic Kaiju blood known as Kaiju Blue.
Taronga’s Revenge is named for a world famous Zoo that was destroyed during the battle that housed hundreds of important and endangered animal species.
The jaeger is a tripod design, utilizing three highly mobile shock absorbing legs to traverse difficult terrain safely and give it a firm footing when engaged in combat. its special attack makes use of its 360 degree spinning waste, and the unit can spin rapidly while dealing out a flurry of punches. as a finishing touch, Taronga can deploy a ‘killing prod’ from either of its gauntlets: a 10m pole that can be electrified with high voltage current supplied from Taronga’s nuclear reactor. it was first deployed at the Sydney Shatterdome from August 3rd, 2015.
So after seeing some cool graphics again tonight I decided to try my own minimalist sort of pixley glitch kinda thing… that got away from me there.
Anyway, I made myself a new desktop wallpaper above. Then because it was pretty simple to do so, I converted the design into a T-shirt for Redbubble
Digimon - No Such Thing As Monsters, red
that Digimon ring. Is that a 3d model? say... something that could be 3d printed?
I have experimented with 3d printing it through the website “shapeways”, but with mixed results. it is difficult to get the sizing accurate, and when printed using the default cheap material as a test, the definition wasnt high enough to identify the digicode. I do plan on making one for myself, but i need to investigate how it will turn out before i spend enough money on it
Four new shirts hitting my redbubble store today!
Star Trek- Honour
I’m going to start remaking that old poster series i did into shirts. here is the proud warrior race known as the Klingons.
Star Trek- Resist
more of a challenge than a summation, the borg are an ever present threat or escape, depending on your view.
a simple shirt emblazoned with the proud International Rescue logo
Thunderbirds- I’m going to count to five
a twist on the IR logo. whenever they counted down in thunderbirds they always counted down from five.
A short video edit i made last night combining the Star Trek Deep Space 9 episode “Sacrifice of Angels” with various songs from the Kill La Kill anime soundtrack. It also includes many sound effects i had to add back in.
a short animation describing how a Jaeger would be launched from the mobile sea carrier
probably about an hour’s work: a Jaeger carrier ship. In the movie Pacific Rim giant robots (known as Jaegers) are built en-en mass to defend against an army of giant monsters (known as Kaiju).
This ship might be an example of a super-heavy cargo ship that had been retrofitted to carry these giant robots. In the film they can be easily lifted by eight CH-47 Chinook helicopters. As part of a story idea of mine, the vessel would have to be capable of launching the Jaeger independently. therefore it needed eight helipads to hold the aircraft onboard. the Jaeger itself would lie face down on the deck and be carried off by means of cable harnesses.
A wireframe render of Tiltrotor. I finaly also figured out how to render videos properly with 3ds Max
