A cleaned-up and final version of Yellow-footed Tortoise...
Very nice render Ken.
We called him tortoise because he taught us...
Here's a first look at Hermann's Tortoise (and my new "Turtled" pose)...
I have two more tortoises to create, plus adding a few more morphs for future Volumes 2 and 3 to the rig and I'll be done with the base set and Volume 1... probably 2 weeks or so
Liking that pose Ken.
Me on a monday morning lol
Moving forwards that finish line (well as fast as a tortoise can)... two more species to go...
Here's a couple Common Tortoise (aka Greek Tortoise) and a Common Wall Lizard in my Sagebrush Habitat (the burrow in it is perfect for a Tortoise home).
Man that shell Ken, looks real.
Great work. So good.
Ohhhh, good to know.
Here's the last two; Kleinmann's (aka Egyptian) Tortoise which is only 3-5 inches (8-12 cm) in size and the Leopard Tortoise (16 inches, 70 cm).
Both habitat degradation through urbanization/farming and the pet trade have caused Kleinmann's Tortoise to become critically endangered in the wild.
On the project, this week will be spend cleaning up textures, settings and finalizing the morphs, jcms and rigging. Then a few days of conversions to DAZ Studio and I'm done
The Red-eared Sliders in the Big Cypress Habitat along with some of my Dragonflies
Nice Ken. I like these last 2 Tortoise's a lot.
They are all lovely Ken, you are doing wonderful work on them.
In case you aren't aware Ken, your render of the Common Tortoise was selected as a Poser Top Pick of the Week at Renderosity.
I'm pretty happy with the DAZ Studio Iray version I started creating yesterday... here's a piece I called "The Impasse" rendered in Iray with my Sliders
I decided the above image deserved a more realistic log texture and a little material tweaking... I think it's much better now
Log does look better now.
So ... who's going to give? Duck or Turtle?!?
The duck would be wise to move over. Turtles snap, I learned that the hard way in a pet shop when I was about seven. Snap, OUCH!
Ducks bite too, just ask my boy lol
