This is a render of a model I built in conjunction with designer Greg Broadmore while working at Weta Workshop. You can check out more of my Weta work at www.flyingwhities.com and more awesome Rayguns goodies at http://www.wetanz.com/holics/index.php?catid=4. We printed it out life-size and took it along to Comic Con as part of the Raygun's display. It was also published in Elemental 3, which was a great treat. The Robot was rendered super high-res in multiple passes. A Key, Fill and Kick light was rendered one pass, each light assigned one of the RGB colours. This allowed me to tweak the lighting in Photoshop. Then I added an ambient lighting pass and some minor reflections. The AutomaitreD's textures and colours were added in Photoshop after.
