I finally have gotten around to finishing my teamSumea UT2k4-team (I posted sniper and engineer characters some time ago.) So here are those two plus some heavy fire support to go with them. I really liked the idea of a remote operated piece of machinery, and have followed this through.

The second image is some further planning/ experimenting/ developement sketches for the character.

I have since finalised the design, drawn up some model sheets, bought a book on 3ds Max, read the chapters on low poly modelling, read the chapters on user interface and basic shapes (because the other chapters didn't make any sense to me[8)])and finally started on my very first model...which I will post up soon (if all goes well.)
Don't know if I will be able to finish the project in time for the competition - I still have to read the chapters on unwrapping, materials and maps (?) and whatever else is required to get there, But I will be giving it a red hot try.
