Hello everybody, with this making of I want give you a rough overview of the creation of my image, The Sentinal.
First of all, I searched for many references and I also watched the Matrix movies again to get a feeling of what a Sentinel looked like, but the first problem I encountered was that there were many different versions, as you can see from Fig.01.

The modelling work went well. I started with the eyes and continued with the body and the tentacles. Most parts were made of primitives (Fig.02).

After the modelling I placed the Sentinel in a position which showed that he was ready to attack - I wanted it to have a menacing look (Fig.03). For the lighting, I used one spotlight and three Omni lights around the model (Fig.04).

I took some pretty simple textures from the CGtextures.com and made them all procedural (Fig.05)
