Rezdoggy - Fenrir

heres my concept, thought i might aswell enter this comp seeing as i got a new pen tablet!

i seem to have a problem with it though, its a genius g-pen m712x, and when im making quick scribbly lines the pen sometimes seems to jump to the right alot, creating very annoying straight lines that go right accross the picture, and its doing my head in. anyone else have the same problem? im sending off an email to genius about it, im pretty sure its not the pen but the drivercause it doesnt havppen in paint.

anyway, enough ranting, heres the sketch! basicly a big two headed wolf, i might make him standing on hind legs. if you look closely youll see the annoying straight lines i was on about, ive covered them up a bit.

Cool scribble. I like the idea of combining cerberus with a snow wolf.
Now let's move to polys.

Hi Rezdoggy! I like the two headed idea really much
I don't know how you did that, because i can't see from these pictures, but the connection of the necks i think should be like you did on the top of the nose. Triangles doesn't suite those jobs really well, especially when it comes to mapping.
i said it wrong.. you can do it with triangles, just try to avoid big angles.

At least, these are my experiences so far, maybe i'm wrong about this so i don't know, just try it out, and if it works, then great!

The rest of the model is pretty solid, i like it! Especially the teeth!
Looking forward on the fur

Hi Rezdoggy. I like your model. Is a cool ideia. Keep going.
About the white box press "J" to turn on/off. It surround the object that is selected. It is useful when you have many objects in the viewport.
Good luck!

Thankyou so much snakeeaterjns, you have no idea how much that was annoying me :P i decided id try my hand at sculpting in zbrush... i dont think its bad for a first try

Cordero: cheers. And yea, the bit between the heads is being quite troublesome im still working out how to make it work although im not too bothered about the bit between the heads, im going to cover that up with alpha fur
