Metal Gear in UE4 WIP-02
Building the Rex – The legs
Hi guys, before to procede to built the environment (the other two floors), I need to know how big is the metal gear, because I can place the scaffolding correctly.
So, in maya I’m starting to create the Rex.
First step. The references.
Google and pinterest are my best friends, but were not sufficient, so I played on metal gear solid 1 and 4 on ps3, and I took many many screenshot :P. I truly understand how they work the rex’s legs, how he can move and from where the missiles/bullets are launched.
Let’s start with maya. I modelled everything in poly, no subD. For some details, I decided to interpret them freely using as a reference Bulgarov’s work that I think are a great example of hard surface and plausible design.
Stand by position (Metal Gear Solid 4)
Stand by position (Metal Gear solid 1)
Sprint position (Metal Gear solid 1-4)
That’s all folks! See you next week 😉
