Could you add a few flowers in there? Not sure if you can geograft from existing plant models? It might take too much time though.

The Fanta Star, Forget-Me-Nots or cherry blossoms would be small enough to get just a little pop of color in there.
My hope is that Lisa will have time and interest in adding in ivy and/or roses or other flowers. Could be other seasonal types of elements or themes that could really add interest and value.

Well, if she has time to do the models I don't mind doing the texture work on them.

Also could do ......... Candles on the antlers Sorry a little big on the image here you could get some neat results with emissives.

NICE Chris!
Is there any morphing ability to broaden the chest and shoulders, strengthen the neck add more muscle on front legs and add height so the front of the body is higher than the hind quarters to make the boy look more capable of holding up that huge fantasy rack!?
I don't know what plans Chris has for extra morphs for the Deer, and I don't have a finished version of it (or the extra racks), but at the moment I can hybridize the horse morphs with the deer (since the deer is a morph of the horse I don't think this will change)
The proper deer morph is the one on the Right, the first one is 100% Deer with 100% Quarterhorse dialled in (and the thicken legs option dialled in as that is what you asked about), the middle one has the thicken legs as well as 50% of Beast added. I would assume more tweaking with the current morphs you could dial the head to get back to more deer like look (tho I don't think you loose the look too much).

Really sweet combo! Now.......... this makes me wonder if you can go Llama from deer/horse (the split mouth being the biggest issue on the llama) or mountain goat from deer/horse morphs With LMAH . .............. hmmm.......... thinking


Oh hey just for kicks and giggles can you see if any of the horse tack fits?

Looks good. Can't wait to see where all this goes!

I've taken several days and significant efforts to fit the classic tack just right.

Remember these?

Looks great Chris. Love it because it isn't classic western or more modern saddle. Would still love to see a rope bridle instead of leather straps, and ragged blanket.
Trying to imagine a scruffy face and beard on the steed. Can see stuff added to the saddle like water bottle, bed role, battle horn, dagger/sword, bow and arrows etc.. Also would love to see a fur pelt draped over saddle for a more ancient war steed look.
