Wayward : The Rabbit that Just Won't Quit!

Wayward's one of the many characters that have been floating around in my head for years now. About 5 or 6 years ago I conceptualized him in 3D. Nothing more then a rabbit-cyborg that looked cool and was fun to draw as well. I never really flushed out his character until much later.

I envisioned him as a very old and knowledgeable weapons specialist with a Scottish accent. At some point in his life, possibly during a war, he had the misfortune of stepping on a landmine which annihilated the entire left side of his body. Luckily, he had already built his prototype robotic appendages. Then it was just a matter of attaching his new limbs and eyes, and of course saving his life. He now secretly runs a weapons and gadgets shop that you'll find out more about later. Think Q from the James Bond movies....if he were a small Scottish rabbit-cyborg.

Hopefully soon I'll be building my new PC, so there should be a surge in my 3D work. Wayward is first on the list for a model and texture job. We'll see about rigging and animation much later, but it's a possibility ;)
