WIP Work In Progress On Eli

pretty excited about Eli... just HOPE there are some included morphs for the ears, so I can 'fake' an African Elephant... that's the kind I REALLY want for any Tarzan art... :)

hmmm of course I can always render an ear separate and photoshop warp it to shape I want too... :rolleyes: just soooo wanting the whole look of Africa...salivating over the lions SOOOO much !

I plan on an add on breed morph of an African Eli for sure, but down the line. I do have ear morphs, for shaping and size, so those will help. Perhaps I can even do a huge one though to mimic that African ear look for you. But then the head would need a morph, and the shape of the shoulders and back. I'll see what I can do.

Look mom, I can fly!!! :rofl: Ohhh, will we be able to form those into a "Dumbo" version, or is that included? ;)

Don't want to sound to nit-picky but aren't the ankles or tat space between feet and leg a bit thin? Seems with all that weight they should be thicker especially in front legs? I don't know something strikes me as off. Sorry for seeming obtuse! :(

Oh darn forgot to add this image. I loved the Trojan horse (shown in another thread here) and bots and mech animals/creatures/humanids so pulled this out of my archives to show it in this thread for any who like the same thing. Though not too interested in elephants I would love an iteration of this!

Okay, so... here are a few African Eli morphs I made for Lyne. I'd like to save the fine tuning for the actual full on African Elephant morph. But my thought is that any of these shapes used in combination won't require a full rig adjustment.

I've used some good reference for this base shape. But I could be wrong. I'll create a morph to cover the concern.
