I finished the base mesh and now am starting to get some armor made for the little guy. I am going to take them to zbrush and decorate them with elven runes and symbols.

I have a character rigging class this quarter and was given the option to use the character he provided or to use my own, so i modeled a spinosaurus. I got inspired to do a dinosaur after i saw a nice tutorial from 3D world and then the spinosaurus from Jurassic Park 3 really caught my attention. These are a few of the stages i went through its now time to sculpt and rig dino up.

Heres some textureing that i did on the elephant snake. I wanted it to look really rough and rugged. I feel that the maya modle should have had more iterations because the polys look a little stretched in some places. But it is time to paint it.

This is an idea i had for huge snake like creature with tusks. It head however opens up like a venus flytrap or like a skagg from the game borderlands. This is the maya model of the head time to take it to zbrush and get some good rough textures on it.

Hope i don't look like this when i get old!

I still have some more subtle details to add and change. But it is almost time to start the final stage of poly painting the old version of me.

Starting the detail

Im starting to add the detail to my creature for zbrush class by messing aroun with different alphas. So far ive tried a bark, elephant skin, and turle shell texture for the alphas. I still have alot of work to do but its comin along pretty good so far.

I started dinking around in Zbrush the other night because i really like the program. I started with Zspheres and then added Zsketch on top of it. It took me about 45 minutes start to the point its at now.
