Basically made this
model more than 2 jeers ago to test out spline IK,
recently used it for Octane render tests and figured it could be sold on CG
Model isn't inspired on something in particular, just wanted it to be slick.
The main idea was it could bore itself thru the ground and when it comes out
it could sway violently whit it's blades to make ships chop of everything in its
way lol :-)
There is a bit of terminator influence in the eye, it function like a diaphragm
The model consist of separate segments linked to a multiple segment IK chain.
Each segment has its own rotation point so no deformations occur on meshes.
The IK chain in turn is driven by a spline controller that is controlled by 5 dummy's.
The knifes and tips in front and back are also animated.
