Pacific Rim - Tacit Ronin

A game ready, high poly to low poly model of my interpretation of Pacific Rim's Tacit Ronin. I loved the design even though it was only featured in the film for 3 seconds. My version became a mix of the toy model, film model, and original concept art. I originally built it to be rigged and animated but I chose a parenting method to pose each joint. The rain, fog, buildings, car, and helicopters were not created by me but were license free models I mashed together to show the overall scale of the Jaeger. I also left them intentionally untextured so they wouldn't be a distraction. However, lighting, texturing and the Kaiju silhouette were created by me as I wanted to give it some context/mood. Still a lot I would've liked to improve but, on to the next!
