Cordero - Snow Creature

Hey all!
First concept, its going to be a centaur. I just can't draw horses, so i only done the upper body. Kind of simple, i know... contains all the information i need to go on low poly

His two arms is going to be covered in ice, as well the hoofs. The "veins" or glowing bluish stuff on the surface of his skin is going to be seen on the legs as well. maybe i'll model a big spear made of ice.

This is going to be interesting, because i've never modeled animals before. And i'm not familiar with furs either...

Good luck for everyone!!

Started modeling. This image shows the basic size of the muscles, and stuff
I just noticed that the guy looks a bit weird from the front, i'm gonna fix that.

Usually,i do the lowpoly model first, unwrap the uvw, and start sculpting it. maybe this time i'll change my route but i'm not sure right now.

I decided to stick to my old way. So i started fixing the polyflow. I modeled the hand, and the hooves. I also decided to change the head, maybe i'll add horns if i have some tris left. Tomorrow i will model the weapon, and i'll define the forearm, and the legs icey surface.

The centaur's name is Liam.

Hope you like it.

Cool! Looking forward to it!

Here is a little update. I removed his eyes, he will see like bats, or dare devil I added horns instead. They are not final yet, just a place holder.

His mouth will be like a cage, sealed with icicle.

I'm gonna figure out how to create the nice lowpoly base for my future spikes on the arms, and legs.

The spear will have a little horse head sculpt made of ice, perhaps you can see where it will be

Hope you like it.

I still have a 2.5 k tris left. I decided not to cover the hooves with ice, because that looked bad.
I started to shape the mouth.. its kind weird now, i will try to fix that.

edit: i just noticed, that the hands sux. will fix that too.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

I think i'll sculpt the weapon first, and see how i can manage with ice
I'm almost done with the low poly version.

Here is the wire frame, and a little over paint from front view. I decided to shape the little spike beneath the horse head on the spear like a leg for the horse. It looks bad now, because i resized it in PS.
Its better then my first attempt at concept...
I think i'll redo the mouth a little bit, and some base proportions must be changed to get a better shape.

What do you think?
