Walrus *FINAL*

4 posts in this topic

Here is a walrus model, and very basic texture.    It's a bit oversize, but not too much I think, and I thought this scale made the tusks seem correct in proportion.  I did this before the advent of the newest version of MCMC with decimal capability.  Idea is for the front flippers to move in a leg fashion, while the back flippers move in the same way, but horizontally rather than vertically.  Texture needs a lot of work, I'm mainly looking for comments on structure.  I tried to use a minimal number of boxes for the body to taper down to the tail.

Did some slight alterations to the model, have been mostly messing with the texture.  Struggling trying to find the balance between wrinkles and smooth bloated hide.  Have a V3 texture with more wrinkles, V4 texture with fewer.  I'm not really sure they're much better than the old version with no wrinkles.  Walruses do seem to often just have taught hide with no big wrinkles.  Thoughts?

I feel that V3 is the better option to go with here. The extra wrinkles give off the sense of the walruses being very blubbery. V4 looks like an incomplete version of V3 to me. Since the bottom two boxes on V4 lack wrinkles, but the front two boxes have wrinkles, it seems to be an unfinished texture IMO.

I think the wrinkles in V3 look a lot better than the V2 version with no wrinkles. The no wrinkles version deals with a large amount of "white" space. There is a vast amount of space that is covered only with noise. Normally, these large noise boxes are typically only one box which is the main body. The main box is typically given a pattern like a giraffe or covered by the wings like the Summer Ptarmigan. In general, the large noise patterns have some other element to break them up. The wrinkles in V3 do that job.

On a side note: The new tusks from the latest MCMC version look a ton better than the old version!

Thanks for the input.  Sometime when you're close to a project it's hard to be objective.  Ya, the decimal boxes thing is definitely going to come in handy.  I kind of wish that had been a thing on earlier models.  The big cats especially could have benefited from some fine fangs.
