View Full Version : Character WIP - Triceratops
09-03-2004, 05:39 PM
Iīm modelling a triceratops. Itīs done in Maya, using sub-ds and polygon tools.
The beak and horns are temporary; Iīll redo them entirely. Iīm working now on the folds and shapes of the skin, particularly on the side.
Any critics are welcome! :)

IDownupI : Thanks!:D
Tonight , a huge facelift. Iīve found some new references, and remodelled the head proportions (hope itīs more like it).
The rear leg is awful, but now I have to sleep!

indeed, very impressive model, you must have a good puter to model like that in subd, mine would have a fit
nice work! but this is a pretty young one, isn't it? the head is pretty big for a triceratops, but maybe this is what you wanted to do, really well modelled!

DanielB: Thanks man! My machine isnīt special at all, but Iīm patient...
Neox: You were right, thanks for the advice! I reshaped the head for - I believe - a more correct proportion for an adult triceratops. Hope itīs better now...
IDownupI: Thanks a lot! If everything goes well, the next update will be with a textured model...

very impressive model!!....just one crit....(dont hate me!!)....ur rear leg looks way more deined when compared to the front leg.......awesome model though.....keep the updates comin!!

Yeah! cool model! Indeed the rear legs must be bigger/fatter.. They should contain more muscle.
Is it true that Maya is slow when you model such stuff using subdivision?

ShinDig: Thanks! Glad you like it...
Cyrenn: Thanks a lot - the triceratops was one of my favorite dinosaurs as a kid, too!
hells angel: Thanks for the crit - I donīt hate you, you were right! I worked a little more on the rear legs, hope itīs better now.
spliney: Thank you! Hope you like these legs better. Maya is indeed very slow in sub-ds. Actually, after sometime I started using regular polygon/proxy smooth on this guy.
Cool work man. Keep up the good work

nafi : Thanks, I`m glad you like it!
Well, these are the first texture maps. Iīve painted them inside Maya - Iīll update them soon, in Photoshop. I hope to better define the bump maps, and create also new texture maps, for specular, diffuse, etc.
