Title: Dawn Of The Ornithopter
Name: Doug Ollivier
Country: New Zealand
The world has changed, the climate is in turmoil, winds are furious, and resources are few and far between. The Aviation industry has virtually collapsed, teleconferencing and data communications are more popular than travel. The Ornithopter dawns a new era in aviation, riding the wind as a bird, There is no better architype than nature.
This Model was created as part of a Yearly 24h Modelling challenge that I have with another Blender user. 6 materials, and all the poligons we can add in 24h straight.
I was recently on a trip, completing an Environmental Audit of the flaura and fauna in a pristine area. I began to look closely at the birds, bugs and fish. Being an Industrial design student I got a bit industrial with my drawings while trying to appreciate the forms of nature.
There are a few minor errors in this work such as joints in the wing and a couple of feathers overlapping. but any other critique is welcome. I am specifically interested in crit about the aesthetics and peoples stylistic opinions. I love to get new influences and perspectives for my 3d, and design work.
