Question Dominance War V - 3D - Avian God- Kaiune

Im a bit new to 3DT forums but need a new community. I am dying to actually finish a comp. Why not start with Dominance War.

My god will be the God of Avian Creatures. Tired of centuries of war and pollution causing the destruction of his creatures. He descends from the heavens to take back control of the skies.

Welcome to 3DT. Best of luck in the great War.

Interesting idea for a god. I like the four eyes idea.

I'm guessing you're just "sketching" in 3D rather than 2D for now? Not attempting to fly blindly thru your high poly I hope, as that can be a treacherous road.

I hope you plan to do a full body concept otherwise you may get lost when working on it.

Topology looks good for a base mesh but I have to ask are you planning on using this mesh just for concept sculpting or for work toward your final model?

Probably not I just wanted to get the shapes in place. I may keep the feet and definitely the head.

You definitely need to spice it up the concept and loosen up your approach. Right now it's suffering from the multiples syndrome, where you've added in extra parts like eyes and wings without any real reason for them. Make sure everything has a purpose otherwise it's just going to look like you don't have a clear direction.

As for modeling, if you model him in a straight T-Pose with a stiff as a board back, he's just going to turn out looking like a totem pole. Birds are very curvy creatures, you're much better off starting with a pose (like the image below) that represents that. If you find poly modeling is getting in your way, stop! Sculpt it out first with simple block cubes, zspheres, and/or Sculptris.


Last but not least get some good reference. For instance, now this is an intimidating bird.

The more I look at it the more I want to change it, as I really don't want it to look to bipedal. Thanks for the idea Crispy. I'm going to work on a new sketch now I have an idea.

The second version kind of looks like a giant rooster. Maybe if you used Liquify in Photoshop to beef the design up. Maybe you can add some armour to the feet, head, back and spine of the wings (not too much, though) to make him look cooler. In some of the Final Fantasy games, you can find some Chocobos in armour and they look awesome. Also, make his wings huge. The size of the wings should be comparative to what would make him able to fly. But, because this is a fantasy character, you can make the size 120% larger than that.

I was able to model the main body and some of the armor. I do plan on making some leg and wing armor as well as ma the wings a bit bigger than the concept. I do want to make sure that the wings will fold in correctly. I do plan on playing with floating items like similar to Amaterasu's shield from Okami. Since I don't really want clutched weapons or to turn the armor too much in to a weapon.

He kinda looks like a dodo with out the wings or tail feathers.
