Title: Zebra shark WIP
Post by: Rooster on June 10, 2017, 11:39:55 PM
I'm not go to have access to my desktop soon, so I though I'd finish this up and post it here for critique.
I've been working on this for a little while on and off, it's supposed to be a zebra shark.

It's still mirrored right now, so I can do edits to it easily if has any big problems.
No texture yet for the same reasons.

Also I haven't watched a tutorial on sculpting yet, so I only know what I've figure out myself.

Edit
After I posted, I remembered that I have a drawing tablet, so I'll try and work on it from my laptop.

Looks good, nice one. Is it animated?

Not yet, I'm waiting to see if anyone has suggestions to improve it.
That and I noticed something I didn't do.

Okay, I had noticed that in the reference picture the shark had ridges going down the body.
I've added those in now.

It took me a while to get the hang of using my tablet in Blender.
But now I've got the model unwrapped, and a temporary texture slapped on.

I will work on the texture more, but other than that let me know what you think.

Coming along really well  :). To critique - I think the eye needs to be more defined + smaller ( looking at the reference pic ) and the spots a tad more varied in shape, size and definition. Also the skin needs to be silvery and a little shiny.

Note : baseball bats are not allowed to authors asking for critique  :P

Darn it!

I'll try and fix the eye, but I may have to edit the mesh to fully fix it(not looking forward to that).
Other than that, it's all stuff I knew I was going to need to do.

Thanks!

Okay! I finally got around to finishing the new texture. Hopefully it looks much better than the last one.
It took me a while to figure out how to blend the colors, but some of the stuff I learned during the code a game competition helped me. (Thanks Qube! :-*)

The first one has stronger lighting, while the second one was done a little darker to show off the underbelly.

That will be $400 per pound, plus tax and shipping. :)

Finished the rigging.

I found out I have a anatomy error while I was working on it. :(
The last par of fins on the under body are supposed to be a single fin.
I'll have to go back and change it some time.

Great progress. I still have to get into rigging and texturing more in detail on Blender. Soon, when I am done with my editor.

All done!
I got the anatomy error taken care of, and hopefully everything else.

Thanks for the feed back! :D
