After a long break; where I was too basically busy to work on them, I have given everything a big overhaul. New story, same characters. The environment is now way simpler, with the same animated beams of light.
The characters stand out more without all that unnecessary clutter. The robots have had some of the gaps in their body parts filled in with extra geometry. This should improve their silhouettes greatly and the robots are sporting a cool black and yellow colour scheme.
Test animation will be rendered without the fancy lighting as it is inclined to make my computers fan sound like a jumbo jet taking off. It is also rather slooooooooooow!
More soon time permitting.
