    I've been wanting to work up a Moose from our Horse model. So here it comes. This is a pure morph and will carry the same UV set as Harry as well.

    This represents work in progress screen grabs. Still need to fine tune the overall shaping, but particularly detailed areas now. Need to give this Alaskan Bull Moose his beard too. Paul suggested I create it from the chin beard of our Unicorn, which is a good idea. So I'll get that going to. That will help the character and profile look of this brute.

    I already have him sized to Dusk, and I'll show a couple shots for that. I've been looking at Wikipedia for size of this animal. I figure if Dusk is 6'2" to 6'4". I can't remember what I made him. Then this Moose is around 6'7" at the shoulder. The spread of the enormous antlers are close to 6' across.

    Paul and I took some photos of a Moose mount that a friend of mine shot in Russia. It's a world record taken with a Muzzle Loader. Anyway, however you feel about hunting, this is a gorgeous animal, and I've used the antlers as a reference for our HiveWire Moose here.

    Guess we can't call him Bullwinkle, but some thing close to that would work. His companion the Squirrel (Rocky) will be morphed from our Big Cat, believe it or not. You may have seen the Rat thread, and the Squirrel can be morphed from the Rat, which is a morph from our Big Cat. Weird to think a Lion and a Squirrel can possibly share the same mesh.

    I can see this animal wading around in Ken's Duck pond.

    A Moose and a Squirrel - that's great! Looking forwards to that.
    A Siberian or Chukotka Moose can grow as tall as 7 ft.

    I read that as 6 acres!

    To be fair, I didn't get to sleep until wee hours of the morning, and the cup of chai I drank before doing so woke me before 5 am.

    Hmm ... wonder if Thidwick, Elliot, or Lord Stag would be infringements?

    Or ... he could be Lord B. Winkles :laugh:

    The Moose looks good Chris. I never knew they grew so big, we don't have Mooses in Ireland so I never seen one.

    How cool is that? I love moose! Thidwick was my favorite book as a child.

    Moose are huge. Two of my brothers were driving through Canada and one of them is explaining to the other how big they are and the other one didn't believe it. Later in the trip they ran into a moose on the side of the road so they stopped the car and watched it. Then the moose climbed OVER their car.

    A couple more updates this morning. Reshaping head, antler base, and body. Positioned the Unicorn beard, but needs reshaping now. Also need to make hooves smaller and reshape from Reindeer.

    Having some fun though. My Muse is laughing.

    And just because...

    This is half Harry, and half Moosey.


    That's one ugly Horse. Looks a bit prehistoric I think.

    Ha, I actually thought of you as I posted that, because you have the ability and capacity to find the beauty that is in the unique. Like Mr. Pugsley.

    After Father's Day activities today, I worked this up.

    Just want a very simple working, and looking piece of cloth as reins. I can see several fanciful colors, textures, and patterns working here.


    Your view from the top as the rider.
