    Tarzan and Cheetah. Although I seem to recall that Cheetah was a chimp in the movies (I don't think so in the books, but never read the books).

    LOL yeah, cheetah was a chimp, and was not even in the books. And technically it is Tarzan of the apes, not gorillas, but I think the line is often blurred there.

    Hollywood couldn't resist the chance to show off a trained chimp.

    On researching this a bit more: gorillas are apes, but apes aren't necessarily gorillas. Apes also include chimps and orangutans. Distinct from monkeys in several ways, the most notable being the lack of a tail.

    It seems that in the original Tarzan books, there was a distinction made between apes and gorillas. Maybe Burroughs actually had chimpanzees in mind when he used "apes". But the movies usually show gorillas, probably because they are bigger and more impressive/intimidating.

    Yes, Hollywood has always been more interested in the "visual" effect.

    EEEK!! Even Dusk 'default' LOOKS so like Tarzan.... and... oh oh.... this 'hints' of so much.... I wonder... hmmm *looks hopefully at VW* :rolleyes:
    Growing up, in a icky childhood, Tarzan was my FIRST 'hero'!! I had dreams even then of him swooping down and carrying me away from all my troubles! NO kidding... ! I watched all the original BW Tarzan movies... and you know what? Tarzana - the CITY in Los Angeles County, in Calif. is named for the FAMILY of Edgar Rice Boroughs and I grew up in the "valley" a ways from there.... ANYWAY... this is very interesting!!

    Also, that loin cloth textured as an animal skin can definitely be used for American Indians! COOL BEANS, CHRIS!!!!!!

    I assure you that we're doing what we can to move things forward. I've been working on Loincloth for Dusk and got that UVed last week.It's being mapped now. Been back on Gorilla today. Creating specific expressions for Kong. Here's a few I created this evening.

    Hoot. Pursed lips. Front view of pursed lips. Front view of growl.

    Map work for Kong is also going well. Virtual World is creating a Silver Back version and a black version that will accompany the base Kong product. Paul will be creating poses very shortly and we'll be very close.

    Here's a sneak at some early map work.
