    Digging this work Ken! Great base shape for even more to come. Nice work with the quads too.

    Thanks everyone... I thought I'd share some of the geometry/joint parameter refinements and my start in morphs on the Lizard project...

    The first image shows some of the morphs I've added (I'm starting to think I might be able to get a gecko species out of the model)...

    ...and the second image is my Fence Lizard (with some of the species morphs in place)

    Looking great Ken, and I'd love a gecko if you can swing it. ;)

    Looks really good Ken. Looks like a nice controlled mesh too!

    Versatility. That's where it's at.

    Really excited about this !! Lizards are so cute in a weird sort of way.
    I found something rather interesting in my garden last year and took some photos of this lizard molting unfold. It was rather interesting, but I did not include the photo at the end where he eats the shed skin. **Yuck**

    Here's a few more morphs (back ridge & throat sac) and another pose that will be part of the set...

    Looking good Ken. Looking forward to seeing a texture on this lizard in a promo. JanW

    I'm still working on the UV map-- trying to figure out the best place to put the seams on the UV pelt (arms or belly separate)... but I decided to sew together so on the side-splotched lizard photo I have and see what the wip UVs look like. Note that there is no bump or displacement maps and the texture map isn't perfect (the side splotch should be a little higher and a little smaller)-- but it looks like things are coming along

    He's looking really nice Ken!

    I can't wait to carry him home! It will be a great addition to bird and flower type renders! Oh and I might finally get to use that Poser fly model!

    Oh, wow - he's looking great!

    I have to agree, considering he doesn't have bump maps yet, he's looking pretty good to me. ;)
