Default [REQUEST] Clockwork-like Pecking Bird

Hello.

For the secret project mentioned in my sig full of expletives, I want to request a clockwork looking pecking bird. Since its name will be a jackhammer, it would be great if a motif with the name could be included.

It is meant to be a small mechanoid, so not much detail is needed, only a very well readable shape on wc3 default perspective.

Archmage Owenalacaster was kind enough to make some concept art for it.

I also did some primitive concept sketch before that could serve as additional inspiration.

I'd appreciate a lot the effort for those who take the request. I have nothing to offer in return alas. Only some vjass triggering and the hope of finishing the secret race project.

EDIT: Forgot to mention animations. I'd be cool if it "shaked" (more like it kept moving on its current position) like the clockwerk goblin, and in its attack animation it would flap its wings.

- Dont solve problems that dont exist.
- Improve the wheel, dont reinvent it.
- Port the wheel if it doesnt exist in your environment.
- Integrate the wheel into your project.
- Make sure you can replace your wooden wheel for a rubber one if someone else invents it.

I'm willing to try but no promises; if some one else is willing to do it they should but i think I'd be good practice for me and i need to learn animating anyway. was just trying it when max crashed though so I'll try again later.

Shadow-killer, your model pleases me. I noticed your improvement of two parts on the neck, one of which I shouldn't have overlooked during my sketch, and the repositioning of the legs for proper balance.

Awesome, more than one offer! :D Best of all, I can use them both.

Nuclear, you you make yours have a bigger beak? In fact, you could get rid of the lower "jaw" and just give the beak a more stylized shape, perhaps an overfall fatter body. I don't thing the tail would be needed. The idea is to give it a dodo semblance. :)

Shadow. I think you could reduce some polies. I guess the wings and the key could be simple square planes with alphaed textures to give it the proper shapes via textures (I can do that, so dont worry about it, just makes sure to make it a sparate geoset or someting and give me an unwrap to work with :P).


So far great work guys, thanks a lot! :D

if you want me to keep working on it i will but i think shadows is a better bet. right now mine looks sorta like a peacock or a gull, which i realize now is not surprising given the number of them around here, and shadows looks more like a chicken.

Work on it if you still desire. While shadow's fit the original request better than yours, I can still get to use yours provided some minor conceptual changes stated before (by getting it to resemble more a dodo, which I believe yours has more potential for that).

It's okay if ou don't want to work on it further too (I'd be sad tho). Your time and effort invested are truly appreciated.

Too many unnecesary polies on that last one. I like SKs one, but I agree with Alevice, it could have some poly reduction in some places.
