We are looking for a poseable, textured model of a macaque monkey. We need something that is fairly realistic looking. It doesn’t need to fool people that it is a real monkey, but it should not look like a cartoon. It should be a rhesus macaque (or a similar-looking monkey).
We will need to render images of the model in different poses (e.g., hands on the ground, sitting, etc). The available poses should resemble the kinds of poses that macaques adopt in the wild. You can see examples of these in the photos on the Wikipedia page for rhesus macaque.
We will need to render images with small, parametric changes in the pose. I would eventually write a script to render images with different pose parameters. We aren’t doing animation but I believe we are looking for something similar to the kind of model that you would want if you were.
We do not need the texture to have a very high resolution. The final rendered images will be 256 X 256 pixels.
Does anyone know where we could find a model like this? Any idea how much it should cost? I realize that we might need to commission an artist specifically to make this. Could someone give me an idea (roughly) how much that might end up costing?
