My wife gave me the idea to have some budgies star in my next short, my first true short after understanding everything I learned from “Penguin Flight” and “Hello World“. So I started work on modeling them last night around 2200.
At first I figured it would be very hard and was getting quite discouraged. But then, I figured out a shape that seems to approximate the bird enough for a cartoon. After all, I’m not making a scientific textbook or something. I still have things to add (such as eyes) and texttured materials, but I think I’ve made some amazing progress.
I based the look of the bird in this picture:
Here’s what I’ve got so far!
