“Here stands the legendary Nemean Lion. His impenetrable skin protects the beast from the sharpest and most dangerous of weapons. However, Hercules will slay the lion as his first of twelve labors, taking the lion’s life. But for now, the lion roars to the skies, warning the world of its ferocity.”
I spent almost every bit of my blending time on this project for two months solid, trying to get a considerable amount of detail into this. The whole scene ended up being around 2.5 million vertices and most of the meshes had raymir too (that render took forever). I used BI for rendering and photoshop for color changes and some fixes.
Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions helped me out on this project, not only on my WIP thread (here), but also on irc. There’s a lot of things I wish i could have done, I know it isn’t perfect, but there’s only so much I can do.
