    I figured I got a lot of the features of the first eagle wrong so I'm giving it a second go. Hopefully its a little more accurate. Let me know what you all think of version eagle version 2.0 :)

    Next installment, fleshing out the face. Taking longer than I'd like to get the meaty bits looking right.

    Go sci-fi with him. Maybe even steam punk. Gear for an eyeball etc.. Could be a new exciting challenge for ya.

    Ha ha.

    With that kind of talk I'll have an ornithological collection pretty soon. Eagle 3.0...?

    It would look cool as a robot chicken but I'm going to make a normal one first. I can make a copy for my school (their mascot is a bantam). They might even put it up for display if it comes out nice. Maybe they'll even stop sending me letters asking for donations?

    COCKadoodledooo!

    I saw them perform that live in '93 at Lollapalooza somewhere near Toronto, though I was more interested in Primus' set. Thanks for the memories.

    The Duck of Death looks great so far!

    More details added. Larger Crest definition around eyes. Changed position of some features. Chopped chin off.

  14. Here's some footage of "Eagles" in full flight to help with the modelling :D, some of those eagles have a pretty good glide rate.

    Reminds me of legend of zelda when you hit too many chickens and they go nuts. Run for it!

    Did a little more work on the duck. It is coming along slowly.

    This is going to be a bitch to make a silicone mold for. Definitely going to be a multipart mold.

    I am not one to criticize your art work and I know it is a bit early but it looks more like a chicken than a duck?
    Best of luck with this casting.
