Ad Astra by Small-Brown-Dog Ad Astra by Small-Brown-Dog
Thought I would have a go at modeling an Eagle for a bit of practice on organic modeling. Eagle test 1 by Small-Brown-Dog
While I was doing it I got to thinking about perhaps making it into some sort of hybrid organic flying machine and it sort of just went all machine in the end :)
Sometimes its just fun seeing where it goes without forcing it.

Modeled in Modo
Comp and tweaks in Photoshop

Background:  www.deviantart.com/art/The-Hea… There are some fabulaous sky backgrounds here.

Wel done! Very majestic :) 

Nice when a project begins in one direction, takes a few turns and finishes even better than anticipated! I think that's a nice representation of letting your creativity and imagination soar!

If some make a smaller one that you can control like the drone we have now I'll buy it instantly

Already happened. The Festo SmartBird, a robotic seagull.

Somethig like that would be a good vision for the future with no weapons or negative intent. Got to be better than cold silicone hearted drones controlled with the bravery of being out of range.
Whoa - getting a bit deep there perhaps ;)

Glad you like it. Its actually a personal favourite of mine and something that just developed on its own as it is completely removed from the original idea.

What a neat idea. I would love if planes eventually became more organic like this! :)
