One of my favorite mounts in World of Warcraft is the Vicious War Mechanostrider so I wanted to recreate it in a more realistic view. I didn't want to completely redesign it so I just changed the parts that weren't visually connected correctly such as the legs. Other smaller parts like the trigger buttons and ignition switch's were added to add to the realism. I Also gave it a darker paint job because I didn't like how it looked when I tried to match the colors up from the original concept.
All modeling was done inside 3DS Max and all baking was done inside Marmoset Toolbag, aside from the AO map. I baked AO in both max and toolbag and combined them in Photoshop. Material renders were done in Toolbag and my high poly was rendered in Keyshot.
