HW Honey Bear
I've a vague impression that Vows & Honor was the one where we actually got some data about them and what they looked like rather than just referred to them in passing.
Gryphon would be nice. I have a few from DAZ and elsewhere and some kit-bashed versions But never really like them much...not the creature the 3D version.Vows & Honor were we got a good look at them, and where all of Riss' Famous Cousin Warral stories came from. Riss being the Kyree who helps Trevayn and Hydona with the twins. Warral being Tarma's bondmate. Spelling may be off on the names.
I wonder if Sparky's critter could do a gryphon... with the help of Ken's wings of course.
Would love to see the Ruckus morph added in to Dusk with the Boar character to see a bulkier hulking wild Boar look.Today, my day consisted mostly of waiting around for renders to happen, so I played in ZBrush again. I wasn't feeling very artistic, so I thought I'd do something rather more utilitarian. I made an M4 clone for Dusk. The work went more smoothly than I'd anticipated, and I got it all done in a few hours.

Can you tell who is the REAL Michael 4? LOL
To test its suitability for my purposes, I decided to try and convert the boar character I'm currently working on. Here he is fresh from the Transfer Utility.

Clearly, he needs some clean up, but it was a solid starting point.
With the M4 clone shape still in play, I was able to project my original polypaint on M4 straight onto Dusk. After that was done, I removed the M4 clone shape, did any final touch ups to the shape and added some hooved legs (the M4 character uses the Creature Creator conforming legs).
Here's a quick and dirty render in Studio of the shape and diffuse textures applied.

Still need to paint hooves onto the texture and convert the bump/specular maps, but all-in-all, I think it was a successful experiment, and I'm hoping to be able to support a wider range of figures more easily in the future. Just need to hack myself the time to create a clone army. ;-)
