PostSubject: Making a Horse   Tue Jun 23, 2015 7:47 pm

Posted this on LM's forum, so I figured I'd post it here, too, since that's what I originally intended anyway.
Showing here:
 

So far, I have a base model with head, tail, mane, ears, eyes and eyelids separate from each other.
Poly count of just 4206 tris. Also finished the inside of the mouth (teeth and gums), though I didn't make a roof or rest of the inside of the mouth or anything. Do that in a bit.

Making tufts and such (as well as alternative mouths and variant models) as I go. Should probably put a few more polies into a few places, too, come to think of it... And I need to correct the flow on the legs, but this is progress.
Probably update this sometime.

On the other hand, I have no idea what I'm doing besides the modeling and rigging. Any assistance would be helpful. .u.;;

EDIT: I plan to provide this free for all servers, so long as I'm credited.
Also, plans: Variants (thoroughbred and draft), tufts (elbows, feathering, under jaw and fluffy ankles (for unicorns)), sharp canine like teeth (already almost done with those), tusks, saber teeth (just edit the canine teeth?).
The current version is already sort of a draft with the heavy face and wide body look, so that's half done, I guess.

EDIT 2:
Variants:
 
Poly count now totals 4,238.

EDIT 3: Made the thoroughbred horse's head thinner and longer. Bridge is less convex, eyes are slightly higher and nostrils/mouth slightly bigger also.


EDIT 4: Took some advice and brought the booties up a little higher.
New Booties:

Thanks.

Added new pictures to the first post, for a skinny variant.
Think I should probably lengthen the muzzle and lift the crest / poll a bit more to give it more of a thoroughbred feel, though.
EDIT: And I lengthened the legs a little (for both). The model felt a little too squat.
EDIT2: Updated the second picture in the op with a slightly beefier version (after looking at some pictures).
EDIT3: Added a picture for the updated thoroughbred (w/ description of changes). Head is now thinner and longer.

Fixed. Thanks for the input. (Updated main post again.)
Things can slip by you when you've been working on a project off an' on for days. .x.
