Show Us Your Gorilla Renders!


I played around with the gorilla and Garibaldy hair in DS, I feel its a bit too thick so I'll probably give it another go over the weekend.

WOW, now THAT's hair. :D Nice tparo, and I agree, just a bit too thick.

WooHoo Tparo!! Looks great! But yeah I do bet it would be even better a little shorter/less thick. Great work!


HW3D Exclusive Artist
Beautiful, Lyne!! Glad you got the Gorilla working for you!


Awesome! Is the fur hard to deal with? And did you have any trouble getting the Gorilla into Carrara?

No trouble getting the gorilla loaded... trouble with texturing though.. it all had to be done manually as the textures wouldn't apply..

I also haven't got the bump maps to work very good as the displacement isn't being very helpful either :-(

as with the fur that was just a quick application with around 150,000 hairs and a quick brush, with more time spent on it ( rather than 5 minutes ) it would look awesome I reckon.

I wish I had the nerve (and patience) to try the hair room in Poser, but I suspect it would kill what little is left of my brain cells. ~LOL~

Stezza, wow! WOW!!! This is awesome. I love this one. He's such a Bad A!

I didn't even know Carrera had hair, or rather a way to apply it! Interesting and works very well!

Thanks for the compliments on my"guerrilla paradise" it will be a lot easier now that I know, or rather have the fix for the gorilla coat in poser .


The new Gorilla is unbelievably realistic! WOW!

What a fun & amazing creation!
