Brutaka Ldraw Model

Another Bionicle Titan I build in Blender using parts from ldraw and brickshelf, Brutaka. Like Icarax, I had to look up Brutaka’s instruction manual to build him. Brutaka’s armature was a little bit trickier to do than Icarax because of the tubes on Brutaka’s shoulders. Had to look up online on how to rig tubes in Blender. As soon as I tried animating Brutaka, Blender lagged on forever. Too many vertices I guess…

My main problem is that Brutaka’s arms and legs look a bit too skinny compared to the torso


Update: Welp, looks like I figured out why Brutaka’s armature kept lagging Blender: The autoweighting of the bones. Looks like I’ll have to unparent everything and regroup the pieces to the bones again…:expressionless:

This is very good!
But Why did you use different upper leg and arms armour, was the original part not available?

Thank you. The piraka armor and leg wasn’t in ldraw nor brickshelf, so I use what you see in the images.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

nice, good job!

You could make the armor and leg. It would look amazing either way.
