My job demands right now that i get better at ‘proper’ 3D, much more than voxel 3D, so I haven’t played with Magicavoxel for a while. But it’s an itch I must scratch, so I’ll be back.

In the meanwhile, some heads and bodies. The idea is to make a set of exchangeable parts: heads, limbs, modules and other robot-y cool looking pieces. With 10 different heads, bodies, arms / manipulators  and legs / tracks / wheels / tentacles / displacer modules I should be able to get enough variation.

I already have a dozen heads and half a dozen robot bodies, all based in simple geometric forms. The inspirations were my mediocre classical sketching abilities and the lovely scifi toys and movies from the 30-60’s, and the use of really simple straight and sound shapes allow me to do a lot with really little time (and fits my starter skills).

I guess I’ll make a package of all them once I get them rigged, so anybody can download it and use the models.

but in the meantime:

3 basic robot bodies.
Isometric view. +2 to all Cuteness rolls. Also, it helps with proportions and scale.
Example with head and one rigged arm
There are great differences in size, to accentuate their non-natural look. If a joint looks like it’s rigged, it probably is.
Front view. Some oh the heads are meant to hang from a pole, and the bigger ones will have their own limbs attached


I’ve been busy working in some cheesy retro looking robots, using Cinema 4D.

I still prefer the ones I did with MagicaVoxel, but as a videographer I really need to improve my C4D skills. So I decided to model some modular bots in the simples way i could, and then learning how to rig the legs and arms.

I need dozens of hours of practice before i get to grips with it, but at least I can render some of the models and they don’t look utterly ugly.


Because I’ve been busy trying to get my grips with proper 3d softwares, and I love robots. I’ll be back with voxels, I promise, but in the meanwhile…


You should love robots, too. The would love you, if they had any feelings apart from contempt for human race and a logic cold desire to exterminate it.
