So, late night update here. Tom and René went to their own homes for the night, so I've got the kingdom to myself. And by kingdom I mean a bad-ass quad-core rig with a 24 inch monitor. And by that, I mean TWO of them.
Anyway, I continued working on the robot's face and this is where I'm at now. I really can't stop being amazed at Maya's high-quality rendering in the viewport, this really is just a screengrab pasted in paint!
Anyway, here's a turntable of it, hope to show you the final model tomorrow, and I'll be texturing it (with Tom's helping hands!) either Friday or Saturday!
