this is a cheetah I designed, as part of a series of wildlife creatures designed as mechanical contraptions.
i like how you varied the wires and tubes and armor so that it achieves a metal organic look.
RAVAGE! Great work.
I wonder where people get such an understanding of machinery that allows them design so many veritable details.
I just look at alot of mechanical things in life and try to mentally soak in the details. Cars, planes, trains, etc...
This is so gorgeous, the details are phenomenal! I just love the smooth shiny texture of the metals and the good anatomical accuracy. The movement is really great, a reall inspiring piece! Awesome work!
Thank you for the encouraging words! Its funny because this was the first animal I did in the series. Granted, he also got by far the most attention, custom brushes, and lots of detail work and whatnot. I do believe that he is the best of the lot though.
