A brief departure from the bird animation…
My coworker had a picture of his daughter at the beach as his screen background. He had edited out a rather large sunbathing man from the background, leaving an unsightly hole in the image. I thought that it would look nice with a dinosaur.
Got the model off the Internet (it’s not the greatest). Made a couple of texture channels. Used the actual picture as a backbuffer and test-rendered until I had everything positioned right. Added a bit of mist, then rendered full size to a .tga with alpha. I used photoshop for the final composite.
It’s not great, but his kid’ll like it.
