Having the story set, it was time to go back to the Bird and make adjustments . Initial model looked more as a statue-figure. Relatively expressionless facial features, no "gadget" inside.
For the eye mechanizm idea was to keep what was already built (ship wheel on top of the eye) and add few layers on top.
I personally enjoy how the ship wheel detail is uncovered as the eye is moving around . It looks like the texture of iris or highlights.
(texturing still needs to be solved)
