They are still not my favorite thing to work with.
I just need to praise/say how awesome Chris's UV skills have become- he really listens to us lowly texture artists so we can make the best/most detailed textures with the least amount of stretching and loss of detail. Something that made me totally insane at that "other" store
I can totally imagine how much working with UVs sucks.... What little I tried to do put me close to going in an insane asylum Which is why I quit trying to model and UV....
And the result is that you're right where you need to be. That is creating super gorgeous textures. I just love to see the mesh come alive with your skins, and then on top of that see them move with poses and a detailed rig by Paul. The crazy thing is to imagine that Ken Gilliland does all of that and more all by his lonesome. To me that is why he's earned the name "3D MacGyver".
But back to you Laurie, your work is such an amazing thing to witness.
"lowly" that's funny.
@CWRW there is noting "lowly" about your work! There are days I am amazed that my poor attempts are being sold alongside one of the creators that inspired me to start creating myself
No kidding Dreamer!!!
Chris, you UV skills are just like art work. Looks great!
I can't imagine ever considering Laurie's texturing skills as "lowly". Not even by a wild stretch of the imagination!
It is interesting that some 3 D artists do seem to think of the textures as somehow secondary- but for me, a bad texture can totally ruin a great model. It really seems to be an equal partnership- like Laurie and Chris have.
I agree, and I hate to say it, but the opposite is true as well. A really great texture can upgrade a mediocre mesh, though you never have to worry about that in THIS store.
Chris I was wondering - will there be antlers for the White-tail deer, since they are shaped differently than those of the Mule Deer?
Yeah, I need to create those too. But they will be much simpler for me to do than the Red Stag set.
Red Stag Antlers complete with UVs now.
And they look great! This is going to be amazing!
Yeah baby, with Laurie's textures they will.
omg amazing talent
Yes nancy, Chris' talent is amazing.
Oh, and welcome to the HiveWire forums.
Welcome nancy. Glad to have you here. Thanks for posting.
Quick update. Our gorgeous Mule deer has been delayed due to focus on making sure our adorable Puppy was available in time for Christmas. And now that that has happened all production efforts are back on our Deer.
We thank you for your support and patience.
This Mule deer and supporting cast will be amazing!
