Dances with Bees
Just curious the details are in the texture?
Yes Janet , all the details will be in textures and normal maps for dimension , Poser 12 still can't render micro displacements , but Normal maps will do the trick , I will include displacement map , so later it can be used when they are ready for even more Popeye effect.Just curious the details are in the texture?
Elephants have extra copies of two cancer-fighting genes: P53 (aka the Zombie gene), which hunts for cells with miscopied DNA, and LIF6, which obliterates the mutated cells before they can form a tumor.An Interesting fact on elephants:
Elephants are large and long-lived animals and so should have a very high risk of developing cancer. Surprisingly, they are practically almost cancer resistant! Less than 5% of all elephant deaths are due to cancer (compare this to up to 25% in humans). It seems that elephants and their living and extinct relatives evolved to be cancer-resistant.

Thank you Chris for inspiring me ! it is going to looks even better soon and many of my Wacom pen tips gonna be shredded in the processCath,
Happy to see that you posted your gorgeous African elephant image you created. It's stunning to say the least. Very compelling. It's fun to look it over and see at all the details you've included.
That would be probably something for add on morph's product to make them look more unique and individual looking.When you do start on the Asiatic Elephant, I hope you will include these variations which are not normally noted but which are actually quite typical for Old Bulls, i.e. large twinned domes on the top of the head, and a large bony convexity at the base of the trunk. Here are some illustrations for your reference.
