Great then for as much details in Maya. Challenging indeed.

Here's a side ref of an african one, which is the one you're modeling. Was just surfing when i found that one. Interesting i guess to tune with side view.

Hope it helps.

Wooosh bump details :bandit:

1) didnīt realize the difference between african and indian one. used both species for my reference pics.
2) arenīt we supposed to model the head of the animal only?!

Nope you're right, that's head only. I posted the complete image lol that's all.

But the profile, even a bit blurred, is pretty nice side view. Just as head side tuning ref.

And yes, difference between asian and african ones is important. Both your pics here are africans, ... ears tell it so no worry. Ow, you used others , really asian


As far as I know in forums, you're the king in your topic lol.
Well, after god and mountains up here

Hi Falott,

great start so far.

I really like the feeling of muscles beneath the skin in your model, especially below the eye. Looking forward to seeing how you add more detail in maya. Excellent choice.

Not sure if you need any further Reference Pics or not, but I went to the Melbourne Zoo yesterday and took a few pics if you want them. Each pic is around 2.5MB

BTW: Progress looks great so far!

Cheers
Paul
