steal one and change the textures, then move parts of the mesh slightly?

Simple enough, drawing a concept.

You may think it mad, but there is a reason for having people draw on a piece of paper of what your character looks like. From there, you can work out which parts of the character you are going to make with which strategy, spline, primitive, metaballs, etc. In your other thread, people believed you meant a concept drawing - which is why Justin gave you that pic.

I recommend having your main robot as Mr Cube, which can have advanced things such as UV mapping for eyes! It would rock!

And anyways, how are you making this game? It seems that you have little experience here, from your posts (no insult or anything, but it just shines through Rasp), are you coding it yourself or are you using a game engine? How far are you in the process of development? Have you done this type of thing before? Do you like waffles/cookies?

Waffles rock. They called me the "waffle king" in kindergarten.

If you work through some tutorials, your 3d-app skills should improve with time. Smile Rome wasn't built in a day. Just don't head for the difficult stuff right away. Try making the easy/boring stuff first, and you'll slowly improve.. Smile
