It appears to be that 3D robots presented here at Templates.com are not the only ones that are worth attention. We have collected several interesting works from all over the Internet that we think you should see. Truly beautiful and of high quality – that’s what they are. Enjoy!
Title: Optimus Prime
Name: Kevin Bao
Location: Shanghai, China
Website: http://blog.sina.com.cn/cgkevin (Chinese)
Area(s) of expertise: Lighting, Modeling, Texturing
The scene is created with Maya and rendered in MentalRay. The image is composed with the help of Digital_Fusion and Photoshop. The use of classical Dong Feng truck, great lighting and texturing bring the feeling of amazing realism to the 3d robot.
Name: Pawel Hynek
Country: Cracow, Poland
Profile: Pawel Hynel Profile
About his inspiration Pawel says that “It was somehow inspired by Battlestar Galactica and idea of Cylons. Creation of man, abandoned by him. Where lays the border of responsibility for our deeds?”
Model is created with 3ds max and rendered in Vray. The bittersweet message of today’s reality behind this rather original scene is delivered to us with the help of great attention paid to details of the 3d robot – the rust and dirt – along with impressive shades and lighting. Modelling and technique work is excellent. Yet, the pose seems to lack some weight and the bike seems to need some dirt or rust on it, too.
Name: Kazuhiko Nakamura
Country: Kanagawa, Japan

Modeled and rendered in Shade, and used “Total textues CD” for the texture mapping, the scene looks disturbing and horryfying, mysterious and beautiful in its carefully executed grunge colors and deem lighting – just perfect for the genre of surrealism. Meticulous modelling and the overall complexity is stunning. The buzzsaw tongue of the 3d robot on the left looks especially expressive.
Title: Unpredictable Contact 2
Name: Wei Ming
Country: Beijing, China
Area(s) of expertise: Compositing, Design, Illustration, Matte Painting
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop
“Just draw what you like to draw.” my mother told me . Thereupon i’ve been using my pen to create something new, and build my world.
Modeled in 3ds max, the scene impresses with its detailed matrix style, which requires great patience and time. Still the image feels a bit bulky and questions the functionality of such detalization. The textures and lighting are nice and smooth with the shining on the metal.
Title: The War Machine
Name: Ted Terranova
Software: 3ds max
Intriguing concept. Great modelling, texturing, and composition. Separate elements look really cool, such as dust, fire and the sky. But the building on top of the robot looks tacked on the design. And tower on the background seems to need a bit of shading to look more realistic. Nicely done nevertheless, no doubt about that.
Title: Tiny Robot
Name: Beskhodarny Eugene
Area(s) of expertise: Modeling, Animation, Rigging
Modeled in Maya 6.5, this 3d robot looks rather human-like and cute. Its childish expression along with these big deep eyes carries so much character. Low camera angle and the soft muted lighting make the whole scene very touching and dream-like. Besides, the texture and rendering are very nice.
Title: Monkey On Your Back
Name: Pär “Pelle” Tingström
Location: North London, United Kingdom
The image is made in Maya and rendered with mental ray.
The dark lighting combined with black and dirty-green colors and creepy 3d monsters in twisted poses create a horrifying experience of the image. Very well done from the technical point of view, and the overall concept is striking! Reminds a little of the ‘Aliens’ movie and ‘DOOM’ video game.
Name: Liu Zhiji
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay
Drawing on the ‘I, ROBOT’ manuscript, the 3d robot by Liu Zhiji is still very original in its concept. Stylized in somewhat Egyptian look, it demonstarates exquisite design and elegant color scheme. The subtle lighting and smooth texture add to the delicate feel of the scene.
Name: Kazuhiko Nakamura
Country: Kanagawa, Japan
Kazuhiko Nakamura’s Website
Modeled and rendered in Shade and textures in Photoshop.
Inspired by Kafka’s novel “Metamorphosis”, Nakamura’s provoking 3d robot breaks the mind with its gorgeous detail and lighting work. Excellently modelled and rendered, the image strikes with its ‘realness’ – one can unwillingly have willys watching the spiders, wasps and insects hiving on human’s face! So surreal!
Title: The Last Of The Leaves
Name: Meats Meier
Country: United States
Both, intimidating and hopeful, this scene is rather unique in its depiction of conflict between the nature and technology. The feeling, mood, pose, and technique all look gorgeous and stylish, the 3d robot itself along with the ground are so much complex in their details! Truly amazing!..
Name: Marco Di Lucca
One of few fantastic examples of beautifuly designed and rendered 3d portrait. You don’t get to see 3D models carrying so much character and personality very often, as it’s not an easy thing to do! And you know what – it does resemble Jack Nickolson a lot! Great job!
“Everything begins with the imagination,” says Khalid, “so when I work, I try to create what I have imagined it in my thoughts which is an impression based on reality.”
Great quality 3d robot presents unique character combining stylish design and arabic tradition of bird hunt, where birds hunt only birds and no ground animals, and therefore do not have crooked claws. And if for someone it doesn’t look natural – you just haven’t been to the East and seen their birds!
Country: Korea (South)
Software: 3ds max 6.0
Rather funny-looking 3d robot, though resembling too much Mike Wazowski – the green monster with a cycloped eye from ‘Monsters, Inc’. The design and shade is nice, but the blue lightning and low contrast make the scene look ‘washed-out’. Also, seems to need some more work on the pose – too ‘robot-ish’. And the concept isn’t clear, to be honest.
See Gekko’s Templates.com Profile
Software: 3Ds Max, Mental Ray
A 3D Model presented here at Templates.com (see this Skeleton Robot in different angles and 360 degrees rotation) by our contributor who calls himself Gekko. A beautifully produced in the smallest details this alien-alike character still has a kind smile on his metal face.
Title: Machineflesh Runner-Up
Name: Bernardo Delgado
Location: Colima, Mexico
Modeled in Max 6 and Silo
The concept deserves giving a hand – fresh and present-day. The pose is excellently done, and the muscles are rather natural. The atmosphere is very energetic. It’s just the feet that seem to be a bit too small for such body – other than that, the 3d robot is amazing.
Title: Machineflesh Entry
Name: udom ruangpaisitporn
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
Area(s) of expertise: Illustration, Modeling, Lighting, Compositing, Texturing, Design
Being constructed of blended elements, the 3d robot is very unusual in its Indian goddess look. The design is elegant, the scene is artistic, and the texture is fluid. Even though a robot the woman yet remains very feminine. A nice harmony, hooray for the author!
Title: The Spacedocker
Name: Jerome Lionard
Country: Paris, France
Software: 3dsmax, Photoshop
The character design is interesting its somewhat retro look. The colors fit it just right, but the lighting is too dark at the bottom of the image making it rather hard to ditinguish the details of robot’s legs and hands. Also, the image looks a bit grainy and flat. But the helmet is soooo cool!
Title: Yellow&Black Bouncer Robot
See Renderboy’s Templates.com Profile
Software: VRay,3Ds Max
Another local 3D model from Templates.com (see this 3D Model of a Robot in different angles and 360 degrees rotation). This fella with massive feet and hands is truly a some kind of a bouncer in a robo-world. Faceless to some extend (because all of the face parts are combined into a one big strip with red lights) he yet looks very realistic due to how well all of the details are made.
Name: Pascal Blanche
Location: France; Montreal, Canada
The yellow lighting works amazing! The angle could have been better though, but still it’s a tremendously complex work with great details. Besides the character itself is so charismatic!
Name: James Small
Location: Nova Scotia, Canada
This 3d robot was complitely scratch built to a customer’s liking and according to his specifications, and this is high quality model – both technicaly and visualy. The metallic color and shine look especially convincing. The texture seem to be a bit grainy though.
Title: Spider RNTC version
Name: Arseniy Chebynkin
Location: Rybinsk, Russian Federation
Software: max, mr, ps
The composition is great. The Model has so many different parts and details – amazing. The fire lighting is also great, very impressive. A superb work – detailed, but not overloaded.
Title: Female Robot
Software: 3Ds Max, Mental Ray
Also a model from Templates.com (see this Female Robot 3D Model product page with different angles and 360 degrees rotation). This young lady (or maybe not too young – no one knows) has it all – all of the rotation and movable mechanisms are beautifully done. Yet this robo-chick still looks very feminine.
