I call him Waddles, because i can really imagine him walkin' funny. But this should hopefully be one of the last modelling progress posts for Ellie's Monster, formally "Monster 2".
i looked at some reference of how one would rig a wing before i started modelling but soon realised Calum's design was very simplified and would not require all the joints shown above, however, this bird wing reference did come in handy when i was building the more realistically drawn Evil fairy wing: see, below.
Before starting the Evil fairy wing i looked at the bird wing rigging reference (above) and images of bats, as the joint structure is clearly evident through their thin wings.
I started by creating and duplicating 8 cylinders
I shaped them t match the bones in Calum's drawing
I joined them together and added topology to make the spikes seem as if they were pushing out through the flesh surrounding the bone
The Fairy wing was created using a similar process to the Evil fairy wing
P.S. The inside mouths for all of Waddles' heads are also complete now.
