-Sorry about the small size-

I was given the model.

The rotate is to show off the texturing I did on it.

Enjoy the loop.

I used Maya and 3D coat to create the texture

Here is a Link to a video that i used this bug in.

It's cool and all...

I'm a 3-D modeling student in Vancouver, and it's kinda random that I happened upon this here. I'm wondering, why Flash? And the flash portal? There are tons of sites built for sharing 3d models and other art, or does this have something to do with Flash. I've heard the newer versions can accommodate 3D...

As for the texturing, it's kinda hard to tell, I think the lighting needs more work. Is that a directional light, and how many lights are there? Turn on raytracing and final gathering, center the turntable, and that in itself should increase the quality. Maybe fill the space at the sides with the texture page and UV snapshot.

It was so long ago, but I don't remember the bugs being so colourful... That might have just been the lighting as well...

Still cool though, you should try modeling too, it feels good to show off work without having to credit anyone!

Thanks for the input, i knew i needed to do better lighting and later realized to center the project. The reason for the flash is to see what limits i had putting 3d into flash. And i decided to post my small result here. if you would like to see more of my 3D stuff check out my deviant art page, its under the same name.

Thanks again for the review and i agree with all the stuff you said.

Extremely Impressive.

As an original Starship Troopers fan, I can really appreciate this. It is more detailed, smoother and, overall, more realistic than the machines they used in the production of the movie. If you could create the models for all of the bugs, you could throw in some plot and one-up Columbia by creating some /decent/ sequels.

BigTippi responds:

Where I got the model was from one of the guys who worked on the movie and later the kids tv show.
We do have some plans for this bug, a basic story will be that its in a terrarium, small and harmless. A can of monster energy drink spills inside, it grows and goes on a rampage.

Thanks for the review
