The Pollenator's name derives from its form, which follows that of a humming bird. It has also been said to resemble a frog, a bat, and a moth. It is a refined flying apparatus, capable of terrestrial and aquatic landings. Balance is perfected when possible with additional landing structures that clasp the ventral glider perch. It has simple controls made possible by highly sophisticated artificial intelligence technology. To enter the craft, the dorsal grilled grass surfaces slide across each other, and it is conventional for the pilot, passengers, and luggage to be lowered from above. It is armed with a crossbow, the "stinger", which is automatically reloaded upon fire. A work of whimsy by an artist who hates flying. But maybe in another universe...

High poly geometry, high res texturing, large scale render, 3ds Max, Photoshop (texturing), Scanline Renderer.

Shortlisted for Expose 6.

I just procured a copy of this poster at its largest, (I like doing quality tests) and it looks great, so feel confident! Get one of your own today! ;)

Wow... I love it! It's a more delicate and fanciful design than some steampunk aircraft. Awesome. :D :+fav:

Those wing looks paper thin... I'd hate them to split on me whilst flying it! :la:

Very cool object :)

Almost seems like it needs at least one 'arm/hand' up front.
