BLUE - Ornithischia by BenMauro BLUE - Ornithischia by BenMauro
Quick creature done during my Saturday workshop in Australia, will touch it up a bit later, maybe play with a new color palette, all polypainted in ZB, needs a bit more refinement in the topview shell breakup and need to resolve the areas in-between the large plates. Some sort of herbivore type creature in this universe, wanted it to feel a bit more prehistoric like some sort of alien Ankylosaurus/Stegosaurus type of creature, overall a very docile creature but has a natural weapon built into its back to defend itself with. The idea was that this creatures back would either contain the material they use to make the deflector shields against the HH creature or was just the inspiration to build them after seeing the creature defend itself in the wild. I was trying to keep the color of the back similar to the deflector shield and also make the overall shape vaguely similar, so they could have gotten inspiration from this creatures back to design their defensive tools from and also to imply the material used is in their back or that they found a crystal/rock material that had similar properties as this animal to deflect and absorb the sound from the HH creature.

The design reminds me of Arsenal Gear from MGS2: SOL

Wicked never saw that design before, would be fun to take a lot of these organic forms and turn them into tech/vehicles like that. :)

Impressive creature. ZB is such a incredible program when in the hands of great imagination and talent. I'd often wonder what it's going to be like when the 3d printer is a common household item for many artists.

Thanks heaps for the demo Ben, we all learnt so much. Hopefully next time you can teach for the entire week! The creature looks awesome sand it's great to see it with all the extra details you've added.
Hopefully I'll be able to join you're class again next time you're here in Aus :)
