Super fun project. Finished it in about 3 hours and then another 3 hours trying to get a good camera angle, image composition and render. Created in 2.79 and rendered in 2.8 but crashed several times. I don’t think my computer liked all the particle systems. Loosely based on Scrat from Ice Age. I wasn’t particularly careful on modeling it. The fur hides a lot of modeling sins.
Thank you. Snow material was a hardest part for me. I thought about this idea before ( swinging axe). Are you sure it is not what the scene shows? And can you be sure anyone is hanging on the rope? I like to make pictures which can be interpreted many ways even when look simple.
The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus) is an epic goat living in Canada. For this week topic, I thought : what a better climber than this goat! So here it is. It has 500 samples and denoising. I used a HDRI for the lighting and two photos for the rock texture.
It has 7 particle systems for the fur and 2 for the moss on the rocks. My computer crashed like 3 times and the render took 10 hours… Particles are heavy.
I used a little lens distortion and hue-saturation value correction in post-processing.
