Even though I am juggling 27 million projects now, I’ve decided once again to start a new project. I am still continuing with the others, though. I couldn’t resist this project. With all these sci-fi flicks that are out, I couldn’t help but make a creature of my own. I watched part of Lord of the Rings yesterday for the first time. I don’t remember which movie it was, but the creatures in that movie were great. So anyways, here is the start of my creature. I named it a “valton”(let me know if that name is already taken). This project marks the end of my box modeling habits and the beginning of my poly-to-poly modeling. I started out with one plane…one. Somehow it offers more satisfaction to know that you started with one plane. Also, you can model much more accurately and there is very little guess work involved. Here’s the “valton’s” head:
and here’s its teeth:
I’m going to raise the upper gums up a little where they’re showing too much. Also, I’m going to put something on his head. I might put a webbed mohawk thing on there, but I’m not sure yet. If you have any ideas let me know. Feel free to critique what I have so far.
