I've been wanting todo this for a few months now. and since I still have some down time from work, the wife said to "just sculpt something" and since some great references have hit the lair gallery.. I decided to take a crack at sculpting this guy.

I have the references that are here on the lair.. my question is, does anyone have some shots the bottom? or possible some screens from the fly over from Predators?



Here we go..

Still rough as hell but I'm Started getting a feel for the over all shape, negative shapes and symmetry of the bird. Still alot to do.

Oh squee, awesome! Will be following this, I love it when people make these and I'm going to be embarking on a plush one at some point, so the more pics the better.

I have some shots of the Hot Toys model for this which Jehdin Thwei gave me, they're from all angles. Not sure if they'd be any use to you, if they are I'll wing them over.

Thanks Victoria! It would be awesome if I can get those pics from you. I need to start planning out the feet and wings.

Wing em on over! Haha

Started bulking up the bottom and setting the balls in the back.

Update..again.. I reworked the eye..eyes? area alittle more. Changed out the rubber ball I was using as a guide with a Xmas ornament. I also whipped together a set of wing armatures out of a postal tube mailer, a few paper town roles, a cup of fiber class resin and some duct tape (Evens out the color and helps knock down the resin smell). I took out the pencils and added some heavy duty paintsticks in the wing armature. The idea is to mold the body and wings separatly and the wings will slide into slots on the body.

I think I'm about ready to start blocking out some wings.

Anyone have a good shot of the bottom of this guy? I'm stuck on that part. Pics of the Hot Toys would work great.

The armature rod is where a sphere is supposed to be. works great for now

I Changed out the belly sphere to something thats abit more accurate. Unfortunately, it's clear and the camera is missin it. And there should be a marble where the rod is. That part will probably be the last I finish.

looking great,are you making the wings foldable to attach to armour.
Thats the plan bro. Im going to sculpt out a separate joint for the wings.. It would only matter of pulling the wings out and inserting the bend into the main body then inserting the wings into the socket end of the bend. That way both wings extended and folded are available. :cool:

I used to fly heli's and planes,and thought a small ducted fan engine would be perfect and micro JR receiver/servos would fit.

Update time:

Finally got around to charging the good camera for pics.

I modded the armature to support the wings and body for mock ups and fine tuned him a littler more. The wings now fit in the body sockets and can be placed either open or closed. I'd like to be able to hinge it some how.

Redid the smaller vents under the wings. They look way better now. I havent really worked on the left wing as much as the right. It's getting there tho.

Thanks man! Everyday I try to dial in the fine details more and more. Hopefully I can get it in the 90% accurate range or higher. :)
