Heavy Mech Final Render by MikeJensen Heavy Mech Final Render by MikeJensen
Hey guys,

So recently I've been working on an eat3d tutorial teaching people how to get hard surface results similar to that of a traditional 3d package. It was just released so I figured I'd upload it.

You can find the tutorial here:


The tutorial covers a bit of the concepting, reworking, sculpting the final model, rendering with Vray, and compositing in Photoshop.

As for the design, I was very inspired by the Marine and the Firebat from Starcraft 2. I enjoyed that game a lot and loved the designs so i wanted to achieve something similar. Also I was trying to focus on maneuverability of the character it self. I wanted to create a mech that would have as little self collision as possible.

The programs I used for this were:

Zbrush - For the model and sculpting
3ds max with Vray - For rendering passes
Photoshop - For compositing

Also the DVD covers a bit of compositing to show you the basics of how to achieve a final image like this.

Anyways, please enjoy and I hope you like it!

Awesome work Mike! It would be great to see this model here in full 3d - you could upload it to Sketchfab, and then embed it in full 3D in your journal here on DA:….

Very Crackdown 2-seque if you ask me. Looks like he's ready for some heavy fighting due to some possible blast shields behind his head. Great rendering!
