    Oh, ok! Guess wasn't thinking of possible option morphs to change all that.
    I know you are still probably woking on texturing but is there any way we can get a texture to look less smooth and groomer-combed for something like this?
    Maybe like a bindle wherby the coat looks uneven and fleabit and wilder looking and unkempt?
    Love the pups BTW and yeah of course even your BearDog. I know I always add verbage asking for more options but you and everyone else here should know me by now as not meaning anything offensive by it. Just stream of conscious wish listing! ;)

    Yeah, the texture in that example pic was just the default chocolate lab, which surely doesn't look right on a bear-creature, LOL!

    Here's a very early WIP screen grab of the bear texture (I started it today to avoid working on LAMH presets for my werebeast :oops:).

    Refining the bear texture...Overall, I think it's starting to look pretty decent. ^.^

    Agreed. Amazing work so quickly. You got some skills for sure.

    Love it. Keep it coming.

    Great to see what this mesh can sustain, and what your abilities can achieve.

    Thanks, guys! ^.^

    Just to illustrate how much difference a texture makes: Bear-Dog take 2, now with bear textures, lol. 60% bear, little bit of ears cropped to fix the ears. ;-)

    How about a Prehistoric Bear dog? That would be nice!

    Those reconstructions look more like bear-cats, to me. Here's 50% bear + face length on the big cat. If I had the cougar skin to put on him, I bet he'd be a dead ringer. :)

    Oh that is great Sparky. Yeah, the Cougar map would do it.

    Yeah looking better. The face will need more of the same too I think and did you lengthen the legs on this last iteration? Looks better this way than the first you posted.

    Failed to see this before commenting on last one. Looks better but the face still would look better with the dappled tex. Would like to see a bit more depth(flesh from brow to chin) on the muzzle and less coming to a point and a thicker neck at jaw. This is a nice view of the WIP too thanks dear.

    re: Amphicyon Agree the cougar tex would do this nicely. And I Agree it does look more feline than canine. I remember when i ws a kid a read in an older national geographic (and for someone who has NO DAMN MEMORY capability why I would remember this bit of useless information is beyond me) there may have been a time when felines and canines were the same creature and somehow genetically split and went their own way.
    re: Magericyon this looks more bearlike especially rearing onto its hind legs...the cubs are cute too something to consider for later ;)

    Look again at my second post which looks lie a terrier or Pit dog with shorter and fatter muzzle.Would like to see it wider
    THe WIP looks more like a bear with thinner more pointed thinner muzzle.
