Animation Test - Bird Wing [v1.0] #4

A quick and dirty animation test (in progress) of a birds wing in motion, just three key frames:
  1. Frame 01 = Up position.
  2. Frame 15 = Down position.
  3. Frame 30 = Up position.

Reference:
Some reference images I found on Google of birds in flight. (click on to enlarge images)


 NOTE: Personal though: "I was thinking along the lines of finishing this test and then duplicating the wing mesh for the other side of a body. Then attaching both wings to a crude low-poly body, something like a dragon - continuing the animation test from there..."
