    Mmmmm maple bars. When I was a kid I had a daily paper route, and part of it was delivering to businesses. One of those places was Winchell's Donuts. I delivered a paper and in return received 2 maple bars that I would consume before I got to my next stop, the funeral home.

    Ohhhhh that looks scrumptious! Salmon happens to be my all time favorite fish, and there's a place right across from my gym where I sometimes go to pick it up, and take it home for dinner.

    They present it in a large salad bowl on a bed of lettuce, and the salad dressing they use . . . OMG, absolutely delicious!! Hmmmmm . . . ~looks over at clock~ Unfortunately it's too early here for dinner.

    Since the deer will be able to wear the horse's skins, will overlays made for the horse work on the deer? Or will there be a lot of texture stretching? I'd like to create some overlays now for when it comes out.

    Here is the older version of the deer using Whisper's silver skin- in general I don't think there will be too much stretching/difference, but there could be a little. This old post shows Whisper on the bull, the buck and on Harry.

    I would think you could have the overlays well along and make any minor adjustments as needed.

    More JCM reshaping here. Trying to reshape and minimize the geometry stretching that would affect UVs. Six more to go now.

    Showing pairs as before and after shots.

    Fantastic work! It looks so petable! And I know many a hunter that would be excited by that rack!

    I'm so sorry. I don't like him.

    I LOVE HIM! He looks so ... so ... so ... incredible.

    A graceful animal made only more beautiful with your map work Laurie.

    The face is great. Looks so real. The antlers look awesome too, and the added bump or displacement really adds to it. The spikey textured look of the fur body is very nice, with that kind of salt and pepper look to it. Like the white patch in the inner thigh, I imagine that runs up around the tail as well. The legs and hooves look great.

    Gotta post a couple of these on our FB and link back to here.
