ADAPTATION-B

If the Manhattan Project was made by idiots

IDEA
Oppenheimer was my first
choice for a character because
he was central to the Manhattan
Project.
Changing Oppenheimer from a
human into a robot was not
easy, it required quite a few
designs before I settled on the
final design of him as a
robot/tank machine.
I still like this design a lot, it

MESH
My concept for Oppenheimer
changed slightly during the
modelling phase. These were
just small changes to the design
of the model.
I created the high-polygon mesh
first and then created the lowpolygon mesh afterwards.
The only things that I didnt
model at this point where the
tank treads and the powerpipes wire. These were made
during the rigging stage.

MAPS
The benefit of making the high-poly

mesh before the low-poly mesh was


that it meant the model was available
for making Normal and Ambient
Occlusion maps before the main
texturing phase.
Not all of the model uses Normal
maps but everything else uses
Ambient Occlusion maps.

RIGGING
The emitters tried to replicate the
smoke from Oppenheimers cigarette
and the energy from the power-pipe.
None of these were particularly
successful.
The tank treads turned out very well
and flow nicely. The tank treads and
the wheels both have separate rigs
and controls for both, whenever the
model moves one must manipulate
both controls to simulate movement.

TURNAROUND

This a turnaround video of my


model in a small testing zone.

WORKING
This is a simulation of the
character picking up and
storing an object for use.
