Very far from finished, the UV maps are messed up and the model doesn't even have bones yet, not to mention animations.awsumz!
this is NOT finished?
wow, can't wait to see it finished...
that means, that I have to work harder!
The cannon somehow doesn't quite fit the body of the tank though =/ (One being rather detailed, and the other rather... crude)
It needs something on the front of it. At the moment, it is very block-ish.
i shall try to clarify in terms of pictures

this is your typical tank, a weapon turret on the top and a chassis(the main body), the mode of movement at the bottom. as you can see, it hugs the ground very low.

This is also a tank, although it may lack a turret. it is still very much a ground based combat vehicle.

this, for the sake of this contest, is also a tank. it has a weapon turret on the top and a chassis. as you can see, with both of them, the bulk of the vehicle is at the lower part, making them stable. 4 leg is stable

this is NOT a tank, it is a walker. it is classified as a walker, mainly, because it walks

This is not a tank. it is fourlegged and stable but it does not hug the ground

this, for the sake of this contest, is a mech. it has an identifiable head, torso and arm structure. It is not a tank
i like to keep it simple. the Grenade test. if it can be knocked off by a grenade, its not a tank. a bicycle is not a tank, a quad is not a tank, a jeep is not a tank. tank is a hunk of metal that will laugh at things like a grenade and small arms fire. if you want a tank that can shrug off a nuke, go ahead. if you want a light tank with very light armour, that can maybe survive a grenade, go ahead. just dont make a golf buggy with guns
as said before, any weapons are allowed
We do NOT want any hovering tanks because there is a very fine line between something that HOVERS and something that FLIES. And we do not want to spend 3 weeks trying to sort out WHAT constitutes the difference between the two.
I couldn't help myself. I had to make a render of the mesh with aluminum material. There are two videos. One is big, the other is small...don't ask me why I gave you both...because I have no idea. D:
