She’s done! She’s a finless porpoise, an endangered species usually found off of China’s coast as well as in the Yangtze river. I felt it was time to get some experience modeling animals, starting with this one!

“Done” in the figurative sense, that is. Nothing’s really EVER done 😀 But I’m happy with her and I need to move on!

She’s not quite done, but she’s pretty far along now! There are some issues I need to iron out with her face geometry and her hands still, but I think she’s my favorite 3d model so far 🙂

Well, she didn’t stay untouched for long! 😀 I posted her on DA and a couple of fellow artists critiqued a number of things, prompting me to change some things about her. I didn’t want to have to ditch the rig I worked for days on, so I stuck with changes that involved only texture […]

Huzzah for textures! She looks so much better than last time we saw her. Her hands are bugging me, and her face has some dents in it… but sleep first. 😀 Tomorrow’s the last day of my staycation, and I’ll be sad to see it go! It’s been an extremely productive time, as this blog […]

Modeling and smoothing groups are complete! Now I’m working on the unwrap. I can’t wait to paint her textures!
Cuda Zuri WIP 03

I also finally gave her eyelids. Don’t know how I missed that the first time through, but she has them now! All […]
Cuda Zuri WIP 02
It’s time yet again for the daily WIP! I got home late today so I only had about 2 hours to put into the model today. I spent most of it on the boots, which are still a bit of a wobbly unwrappy mess. I also added details all over and added some more textures. […]
Cuda Zuri WIP 01
Hullo! Another evening, another few hours of practice! Here’s Cuda Zuri, a warrior elf girl from somewhere far, far away. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on her already, having built her from a similar model I made last year that I decided to spruce up (a lot). The modeling is done, but there’s […]
