Hi all,
This is a 3-D model that I have created a few weeks back, I was working on a short for it but got a lot of work that stopped me from progress.
The Hunting Toy is part of the few characters that I was relating with the Arabian traditional sports, in history the Royalty or the wealthy Arabs have always had the interests in training these beautiful birds to hunt other birds just for sport, So I wanted to create a robot remote controlled machine that has a jet coming threw the length of It's body, This robot was not so well built, It was build in an old fashion to other technologies in it's time, So the designers that created it used older methods of building robots, Maybe they lack the technology in that part of the world, but never the less it still works, If you look at the textures you will see signs of crashes, That it's an old model of it's time-!! The textures were painted with the influences from the traditional Omani Daggers, all hand painted in BP.
If you want to see more renders please visit this location, Just follow the Falcon Icon :)
Please give me your comments, It's always nice to here what others have to say :)

nice stuff, reminds me a bird in a french short called "le deserteur" in wich a man control a bird with a virtual reality mask...

I find the shader too shiny and too goldish but i can understand if you told that was an arabic tradition

Stylish design is my favourite, and I'll add some "feather" around the neck.

Salaam Khalid,

Its really nice to see some super quality work from the middle-east, all my year living in Dubai - I could never find a studio that did quality work.

But this is totally amazing, Had a look at you site and the work is impressive really.

The designs, modeling, texturing very well executed.
