Robot Joe

    Newer Older

    A 3D robot I built and rendered using Final Gather with an hdr image as the light source.

    Update: I uploaded a couple of the early sketches that Robot Joe originated from here and here.

    Update 2: Check out Rude Robot Joe here!

      Thanks for all the positive feedback - it's encouraging me to actually finish the animation that I had started so many months ago...

      It's a little ironic that this is one of my most popular uploads, and it's not even a photograph (although it does incorporate one). Still... it feels a little like cheating.

      Hey I thought I would let you know that I am using Robot Joe as a desktop image for my eMINTS classroom. The students will be completing a webquest learning how to add and subtract using a number line. We renamed Robot Joe Z-Bot for the purposes of the webquest (Hope you don't mind). My 7th grade students and I appreciate your work and you being so kind as to let us use with the CC license. Our webquest is going to be CC licensed too! There will be a link in the Resource section attributing your work. Nice job! :)

      @jubylei Thanks! That's really cool - I'm glad you and the students like it. I keep putting it off, but now I really should do something more with him!
