    Just to make it clear, this unmanned drone is NOT spying humans! Since I'm trying to get away from the standard war-is-cool kind of concepts this drone is used to spy on;
    Mudskippers!

    'In the beginning of 2013 the US discovered a new race within the family of Mudskippers. It is believed they are more intelligent then human. And because most of the humans today are afraid of the unknown, the Ministry of Defense created an army of spydrones to spy on those creatures. They could have an evil plan to overthrow the government or even the world. They could be a threat to all the oil-pipes that are laying in the sea or even those on land. Or they could have some (nuclear) weapons of mass destruction. This last suspicion is enough reason to pull out all the power a country posses.
    Though, to keep this activity a bit under the radar they first start with this drone-series. The bigger guns will be pulled out when the suspicion is even bigger (but still not based on facts..)!'

    Spec's:
    The 4 rotors can tilt forward and backwards to gain or loose speed. The drone is waterproof and the pontoons on the side will pull out once the drone starts to enter the water. The 'forehead' contains all the radar equipment. The belly of glass has all the observation-stuff and can take watersamples. The noses of the pontoons holds all the echo-equipment.

    @ Incinerated
    Let's give some feedback

    I can see this drone has the features of a small bug or some animal. But the scale is wrong or this drone is huge. When I look at the waves and their brakinglines this drone will be around 50 to 100 meters long. I've said nothing is this all is just your intention.

    Then about the definition. I cant really see what everything is. I can't define the brown stuff on his bottom. Material-wise it's ok, I see that the top is made of some shiny metal but you should be more subtle with the texture. I know it's a scattering custom brush but try to do it on a separate layer and play with the scaling, opacity and color.

    I do think your water color is very nice!
    Keep it up!

    Hey Absorber yeah I see what you mean, I could have put in a some form of size identifyer in there, a lolipop or something. I actually messed up the water a bit, I should have put in more foam to make the ripples seem smaller. I need to some serious texture studies soon too... Nice job on yours has a good quality to it.
