Giraffe? From Harry?

    Yes, and the Big Cat evolved from the Horse. And the House Cat, Dog, Rat, Dragon, and a myriad of others started from the Big Cat.

    Big Cat from Horse, and Horse from Dawn. Hum, Dusk, Luna, Gorilla, all from Dawn.

    Maybe her middle name is "Eve" - Mother of many.

    Here's the mane for the Giraffe. Now to add in the hair pieces on top of the Ossicones. Will do that next.

    Looking great :) Is he going to have an extra long, prehensile tonque ?

    Yes, still a straight up morph from Harry. The mane is taken from Harry's mane as well.

    Depends I guess. If we keep it a Horse morph, it will have the same structure, but I suspect our base tongue would still suffice.

    It's a big Giraffe. Probably around 18 feet. Right now this base is a female. But the size is a male.

    Should I drop him down a foot or so, or leave as is?

    Are ya gonna give him ball bearings? If it's a female wouldn't it be a bit shorter then a male ?So it's one half up and one half down, give it a morph to make it shorter for the female and BB for it as a male I just Googled Males are 16-20 foot tall females are 15.
  15. Chris

    Chris HW3D President Co-Founder

    Yeah, I'll create a male genitals morph.

    Has a camel been tried, yet? If the neck can stretch for a giraffe, then it certainly should for a camel!

    I used to spend a lot of time with the giraffs at the San Diego zoo. They are so elegant and move with almost a regal grace. As to your question, Chris, about the size- my only worry would be trying to fit a close up of a figure in the same shot with a giraff that tall. Is it possible to provide a morph to shrink him down a bit?

    And that face is just gorgeous!

    Well, a baby would be shorter. People might have to be on a rock or a platform, or bend the giraffe's neck down lower, or have the giraffe lie down next to the person.
