Cartoon Goat - inputs before moving on to rigging

Hey all,

I would love to get some inputs on this model before I go into rigging him :slight_smile:

-Lovely model :slight_smile: very charming!! I suggest tweaking the legs a bit… prob make it a bit bigger or thicker so it gives more support to the overall form… Right now it looks weak and flimsy…

I like it a lot. I’m not sure of the style you’re going for but the pupils are supposed to look more like rectangles.

I’m actually getting more of a donkey vibe from this. The modeling looks rock solid, but I’m inclined to think it’s lacking somewhat in his caprine-ness.

Thank you all for the compliments!

DarkLimit: I agree, the back legs seem way to skinny. I will try to give him a little more ramming power.

awesomehammer: Yea, those goats have crazy elongated pupils. But since I am going for a more cartooney style I thought it would be better to ‘humanize’ him a little. Thoughts?

Anayo: You know his face really does have a donkey appeal to him. I think it comes from the oversized jaws which goats don’t really have. Hmmm, I will have to think about this…maybe I should change him to a donkey cause I really like the shape…or maybe I should try to reshape the jaws to get a more goat feel. Thanks for pointing that out.

Here are some references to cartoon goats. More updates to come!
