    Started on a new model again. I wanted to make all of the characters from the Transformers Animated cartoon, decided to start with my favorite character, Wreck-Gar. When I first saw this cartoon I wasn't sure what to think, at first I didn't like it cause it just felt too different from the G1 series, but it grew on me after a while. I plan on making the robot mode and vehicle mode for each character that I make(no transformations) as proper reference allows. First the robot mode for Wreck-Gar!:mrgreen: Let me know what you guys think so far.

    Small update, tweaked the shape a bit and removed some small parts for ease of build. Gonna start the uv unwrap and start the textures this weekend, after I watch some Transformers episodes:mrgreen: Hey it's research....yeah that's it:mrgreen:

    No interest in this one from anyone? Plenty of views but no comments. :p

    It is from that series, yes.

    I think it's the name of the thread that's throwing people off. For the non-Transformers geeks " Ba Weep Gra Na Weep Ninny Bon" is the universal greeting that Wreck-Gar says in the original Transformers Animated movie(not current Animated) when he meets Hot Rod and Kup on Junkion planet. Thank you for the post, I'm glad you like it.

    Finally got some time to get Wreckgar test built. Overall I was happy with the build except for a few flap positions that need changed and a few parts unfold need rearranged.

    Ended up standing on its own surprisingly well without any need for weights or a stand. All the scribbles on the test build is just my note taking as I build it so I can remember what needs fixed, also I made an Autobot and Decepticon logo cause Wreckgar can't seem to decide which side he's on so I figured I'd let the builder decide for him[​IMG]

    Wow really cool,so when will you be releasing him?
    And how is it that you design models so fast?

    Thanks Crimson, and my response to your comment is "Put down that chainsaw and listen to me"

    Thanks Nav I'm glad you like it. As far as designing, I don't feel that I make them fast, actually I would say it takes me anywhere from 2-6 months from start to finish, maybe even longer. Look at the Omega Spawn model, it's been several months and is still sitting on my shelf about 75% built.:mrgreen: I try to set at least an hour or two every night after my kids go to bed to model and buff up my painting skills (or try to at least:mrgreen:) Oh and I hope I can have him ready for release by the beginning of May.


    I made a little progress this morning on the textures for Wreckgar. So far I have the base colors laid down and started to add in some details, so these are far from being done. Can't decide whether to ditch the textures and build it with some sparkle cardstock, I'm liking these (mostly Gundams) models built with that paper more and more every day. Maybe I'll order a sample pack and test it out hmmmmm.

    It's time for us to join in the fight
    It's time to let your babies grow up to be cowboys
    It's time to let the bedbugs bite

    You better put all your eggs in one basket
    You better count your chickens before they hatch
    You better sell some wine before it's time
    You better find yourself an itch to scratch

    You better squeeze all the Charmin you can while Mr. Wipple's not around
    Stick your head in the microwave and get yourself a tan

    Talk with your mouth full
    Bite the hand that feeds you
    Bite off more than you can chew
    What can you do
    Dare to be stupid

    It's so easy to do
    Dare to be stupid

    So can I have a volunteer
    There's no more time for crying over spilled milk
    Now it's time for crying in your beer

    Settle down, raise a family, join the PTA
    Buy some sensible shoes and a Chevrolet
    And party 'till you're broke and they drag you away
    It's OK, you can dare to be stupid

    It's like spitting on a fish
    It's like barking up a tree
    It's like I said you gotta buy one if you wanna get one free

    Dare to be stupid (yes)
    Why don't you dare to be stupid
    It's so easy to do
    Dare to be stupid

    You can sit around the house and watch Leave It To Beaver
    The future's up to you
    So what you gonna do

    Dare to be stupid
    Dare to be stupid
    What did I say
    Dare to be stupid
    Tell me, what did I say
    Dare to be stupid

    Made a wee bit more progress on him this morning. So far I have all of my color flats and shading down for the most part, so pretty much all that is left is the small details and the face. I may be able to have him released by next weekend.:thumb:

    Thanks nav, should have him released by next weekend.



    Well, I think I can call the textures done. I have a few small things to fix here and there but they're done for the most part. Going to re-do the unfold tomorrow, attempt to make some instructions ( I always fail at instructions) and I can get him released

    Thanks Nav.:thumb:

    Made up a cab for garbage truck mode and got it all textured up. I scaled down the garbage truck quite a bit so I could fit them both on one stand. Still working on getting the robot mode built up.
