Giraffe? From Harry?

Guess the saying (anyone old enough to remember this?) *sings* "A horse is a horse, of course, of course" isn't QUITE accurate. Chris is really good at proving that (at least in a 3d model) a horse can be all SORTS of other animals too ;).
Pretty sure you're not older than me!! Well, thanks for that. I'll have that song in my head all day now!:p

Chris, this looks fantastic, and so realistic. I was going to say the same thing as Lyne did previously. What about easy pose for the neck. If he had enough joints, would it work? Then Sparky mention JCM's. Interesting seeing this come together and how you'll solve that issue. I love how you share your progress. Leaves us all on the edge of our seats. :)

I was going to ask if there was enough bones in the neck for the giraffe but having seen Sparky's image it looks like it could still be feasible to use the giraffe as a morph.

Love what you're doing Chris!

"A horse is a horse, of course ,of course,unless it's a horse ,that Chris has morphed the incredible modeling man........" okay not great but you get the idea ....

Not being at all critical or nit-picking but a lot of the pics of giraffes I see show the hind quarters sloping down from the shoulders. They have a distinct slope in their back ? Will this giraffe have a morph for that ? Some ?younger? giraffes have more level back..but others have distinct slope ?

Whatever we need to make it right. Or at least have options.
