This is so funny Ken, you have sure made me smile, I guess I would not have to put bird seed out for this one.
At last a bird that might intimidate my cats.:)

Great! My fave bit is the rotor on his tail. What fun!

He's terrific. He reminds me a bit of toys I had as a little boy that were crafted out of painted tin - toys I haven't seen in nearly 60 years. Maybe they weren't quite as fanciful, but in the ballpark. I love the painting.

it does look like a very well designed toy. a little bit of steam punk maybe going on as well. could see it leaning that way. :D

Terrific Kenmo. Love it.

See the mechanical SmartBird bionic technology-bearer, which is inspired by the herring gull, can start, fly and land autonomously -- with no additional drive mechanism. Military applications to come?

A dodo risen from the ashes. Who needs pesky DNA?

Very fun design. I want one.

Thank you Dr Lima da Vinci. Brilliant reply to Kenmo's clever mechanical design. :)

You really set up a magnificent comics style. I'd be eager to know how Youmay get such neat and vividly colored and textured images. Bravissimo!

Even though it is mechanical, it is full of character....i am not inclined in this kind of art.... but i just love this... colourwise and otherwise. Just love this.And so well done.:-)

No no. It eats ball bearings and metal lathe shavings seasoned with 10w30 motor oil. (Well, even a mechanical bird can have problems with regularity.)

Many layers, using differing blending modes and a few layers of photographic textures from the free texture websites...

So creative bird. And I never heard of the program Groboto 3.3 until I google it. Oh, so it's mesh for 3D art? Very interesting combination with Artrage.

Yes...it's a 3d mesh program that uses booleans...
