oh, i agree. would just be nice having both.Harry is a different mesh/UV to the Big Cat but I think all the hooved animals will be the same as Harry so could possibly "wear" the same displacement map. The Big Cat veins would most likely work on the House Cat and Dog (just not sure if the veins would be in the same place for each animal in real life but I don't think that would matter much).
I think a displacement map would work ok for veins but I think the muscles would need morphs (and if it was morphs I think this would be great so you can dial in how muscular you'd like the animal to be).
One of my favorite Julie Bell images!! LOL Note the drowned sailor resembles Boris if you have ever seen an image of him.Boris was mostly fantasy and mythology while Julie was more into hero paintings and similar. I think over the years their talents have merged a bit more. Both equally talented!
nearly all the time! She was a former nationally ranked competitive body builder so they both model for each other (and themselves since they sometimes work on a painting together).Oh look at that. I wonder if he's ever incorporated Julie in any of his images.
Could someone explain to me why veins in renders is such a "hot thing"? right now. I, personally, don't get the appeal, unless you're trying to achieve a realistic render of a pro wrestler or something, which I never have tried for.So I have been tinkering with some mapping and have some thing that could work well for veins. Alas when I attempted to see what I could do about ribs it didn't work out so well, displacement is not really enough thought what I have may work for a start.
So a question for you all before a go any further, how veiny do you want Harry?
As far as the horse goes it would add a lot of realism to renders of say race horses just off the track after a race or a prime stallion seeing off danger from his herd, thins like that. You'd be amazed at how much a bit of light veining can go towards making an image pop, take this image of mine for example. Just a little bit and suddenly Harry has a whole new personalityCould someone explain to me why veins in renders is such a "hot thing"? right now. I, personally, don't get the appeal, unless you're trying to achieve a realistic render of a pro wrestler or something, which I never have tried for.
