Cuusoo of the Day: 2012.05.22

Penguin

by Jumpei

This Penguin is a masterful combination of organic and cartoonish.  Jumpei is able to get an astounding amond of "roundness" out of the bricks.

 

Honorable Mention:

Imperial Sith Interceptor

Here is a another ship from The Old Republic.  Its sleek without being overcomplicated with nice details.  It almost beat out the Penguin for my pick of the day, but

  •  Its wings borrow heavily from Tie Fighter 9492.  There is nothing inherently wrong with that and I actually applaud the use of existing design element for something that is SUPPOSE to be related but I personally give more points to originality when comparing two projects head to head. 

  • Much more grievous, the overabundance and boring implementation of the 2x4 slopes connecting the wings to the cockpit.  These scream for replacement with some other elements more worthy of an otherwise awesome design.
