My ancient character in steampunk style is a thunderbird, from the indians mythology. I am a very bad drawer, so i made it in 3D.

I wish good luck for everybody in the contest!

Just working and working, and testing the textures...

Yes, i know, i have to finish te work before sunday...

Tonight i'll finish the pilots, and the bird's texturing.

Tomorrow will come the smokes, and the post modelling (looking for mistakes).

Tomorrow night i'll finish the background (scary part of the project).

And... compositing.

I have no choice, the deadline is coming, so go ahead, full throttle.

I hope, i can make it!

Software: Maya,mental ray,Photoshop

Well, i have totally killed my computer with this model, the guideline is too much for this old machine. I searched some render tips on the internet, but it could not help! I'm so sorry, but i cannot send as large image as it was necessery. :( So, here is the Thunderbird, fusion of bones and steam technology, as i imagined.

Thanks all of you for this awesome challenge, it wasn't easy, but great!
