Default SpittleBone from Castlevania "Symphony of the night"

Here is a little model I am working on too practice. I just started texturing, and it is at 263 tris... the texture right now is 512, but I am gonna size it down to as small as possible...

So anyway, I will post a wire up too..

The texture isn't anywhere near done yet

I am thinking of doing a whole series of models from this game, because I have beaten it at least 30 times in my life, and it is my favorite game. I get inspired whenever I play it... so yeah, I may do more
Also here is what the original looked like



Ok, here is the wire:

Ok, I made a decision...
I am gonna do ALL OF THESE in a month to see if I can.
In whatever order I please starting with the Merman, I guess...
So yeah, I will start on Monday February 23, and will hopefully end on Monday, March 23rd!
After that, I want to make a little scene with these too, so I may model an Environment if I get bored or stuck, haha
-Andy

P.S. There are 17, and there are 29 days until then.... which means I need to do .5862 of a model every day to get it done... I think I can handle that.

lol dont forget that means you have to do 0.5862 of a texture and uving per day too so basically you gotta model and uv a model each day then texture the next day :bandit:

good luck
