Nice. Did you use the backlight hair shader, or is that even possible, since it's Iray?

AM's brought out his latest lions over at the other store (I think these are at least his 3rd version of lions, if not the 4th). His modeling is getting much better. But the Hivewire Lion is still the more attractive. I'm beginning to think that the major difference is that AM's animals are designed from the get-go to have hair. Whereas with other models, the hair is a nice bonus of an add-on, if it's available. But the modeling is assumed to be out there where everyone can see it.

Well, I'm having a day building Frankencritters. I redid my Thestral, now that Arki's released a reworked set of the Strigoa wings, and while I was at it, I redid my hippogryff, which uses the Strigoa harpy legs. So, while I was on a roll, I decided to make it a hat trick and built a Griffin.

I've a nasty feeling that it's going to be even more of a pain to pose than the hippogryff. But it looks pretty good in its base pose.
