Mount Up - Kaiune

I am so down for this. I have no idea what I will be doing at this point, most likely something organic. But Zbrush 4 r2 is right around the corner and I have been dying to use some of these new features. Time to work on some CA.

here are a couple of quick sketches of the two ideas floating in my head at the moment. These are the "Wild" versions before being made into a mount. Not too sure what one to go with. Opinions
definitely welcome.

Looks pretty cool, one thing though: the front legs are on backwards. Take a look at the anatomy of any quadruped and you'll see the (what would be considered the elbow) points in back not forward. Having it point forward makes it appear the animal is standing with 2 pairs of main legs--which as they are look really really awkward. Keep at it.

Check out the horse in this link: http://www.scott-eaton.com/outgoing/...tomy-Eaton.pdf the third page. The elbow points back the wrist points forward etc. Excuse my ignorance of the correct terminology for horse anatomy.

Here is another link for quadruped locomotion: http://www.oricomtech.com/projects/legs.htm

Thanks for the tip. I adjusted the front legs during the retopo. Currently sitting at a little over 8k tris. Now to build a saddle system for him.

I know your creature isn't a horse but here is a link on youtube of some reference for anatomy which can only help, I'm learning a ton from it myself.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3xLC...eature=related

This second video will really help. I'd also follow through on your muscle groups of the animal and think about how the bulges will be represented for how they connect on the bones to one another. This will greatly enhance the appearance and success of the models anatomy and aesthetics.
