    So excited for this deer! I already have about 1000 renders I want to make with him...

    Worked on Muley today. Here's what I did.

    1) Turned down the outer corner of mouth, so he's not smiling anymore.
    2) Lessened the gap between each hoof.
    3) Changed the shape of the genitals to look more deer like and less horse like.
    4) Renamed material name for Foot Claws to be 3_FootClaws.

    Sent new Obj off to Laurie.

    Previous mouth.

    New default mouth shape.

    Default mouth shape now.

    New shape overall.

    Lessened the gap on hooves.

    Better genital default shape.

    Looking so good.
    It always amazes me when such big animals have such tiny little hooves. My Uncle was a blacksmith and always said he was thankful he never had to shoe a reindeer.

    Scaled this bad boy to Dusk. According to Wikipedia the Mule deer is from 31" to 42" tall at the shoulders. So I figure this Buck is around 40" to 42". Somewhere in there.

    He's a lot shorter than I thought he'd be.

    Would a tail morph be possible to get the white tailed deer look? deer.jpg

    Tail will be morphable for sure. But it would work better if the whole deer morphed to be a white tailed deer which won't happen on release of this buck. Would also be better with a matching texture map.

    So perhaps down the line. Sound good?
