Ipod Transformer by Mmoose Ipod Transformer by Mmoose
Hey guys,

Thought it was about time to submit a bit of an update on what I have been up to. Working on this transformer for an advanced 3D project. I have animated the transformation and I am currently playing with lighting and setting up the render.

Bit of info about this guy: He is an Autobot, transforms from an ipod... and he is really really small.

Inspired by the recent transformers movie. Concept and design is pretty much all mine but I have looked at the movies transformers as I have made this.

An autobot that fits in your pocket...
I don't think anyone else has come up with that...

That is just too cool...

I'm not a fan of the iPod (or anything made by Apple) so if I had made this, he would be a decepticon haha But nonetheless, it's awesome!

This is amazing! Great job, you were really detailed with this too. I like how you weren't worried about showing the inner body, and making him look realistic.

Hey man, it's just all simple shader based. I can't remember the exact materials that I used in this render, but I don't think that they were far from lambert and blinn. It's more about the lighting that will make or break the render. Oh yeah and I didn't use any normal or bump mapping, just a bit of texture mapping

I worked on it slowly for a class for about 1/3 of a year. The rig has has a skeleton, but in the transformation most of the pieces are individually keyframed

well you should try to make a one transform into PSP OR DS OR lets be little big maybe a ps3 or wii and xbox 360

last thing i want to know what did you use to make this

Um not too sure what you are trying to say there mate, but I used Maya to model & render the ipod.

As a matter of fact, I just drew him today. I tried my best not make him look like yours, but tell me what you think. I should upload it in the next few days. I have no name ideas though, do you have any?

Wow. Now that's what I call nice! I wish I could do stuff with mechs. But sadly I can't. Now the program you used, how does that work out? Did you have to draw everything from scratch?

:iconmmoose:
Mmoose Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I used maya to create this. I started by drawing some concepts, and visualizing how it would transform. I then built it in maya :)

Lil-Kitsuko Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So technically if you just draw out some simple concepts, then you can use Maya to build the rest? Okay! ^^ Thank you! I am very interested in trying to make my own Transformer.
