Mecha-Diatryma

  • Technical Direction, SVA Spring 2012
  • This project was a technical direction assignment that was to create a mechanical organism with animated soft hoses and pistons. My mecha-diatryma, inspired by the "Chocobo" from the Final Fantasy franchise, contains many soft hoses on his steam-pipe tail feathers and joint-driven pistons on the hips and under the wings.
