Default A model that I just finished

This turtle is now ready for animation. I have done a few tests on it and lip synch test things worked great.

"You want fries with that?" Perhaps?

I second the previous wow. Can it pull its head and legs in? That'd be sweet

Yes it can move its head and legs inside the shell and the front part of the lower shell closes. I will put up some other views of the this character.

Thanks for the comments

Does anyone have any Ideas on how to make a photorealistic sand shader?

it's a great model but i think your texturing could be a bit better. The shell looks a bit blurry even from this distance and the size of the patches on the legs seem to be a bit big. Do the legs have a bump map? they seem quite flat. you may want to consider a displacement map instead of a bump map.

Can we see a wire of the model aswell please?

Default Thanks Alan

I have had that problem with the shader in the shell, in just that one area. The map seems to stretch, and I have gone in and added more isoparms to that area with the same results.
Any ideas that might help? I kind of like the big patchs on the legs, but I have created some other shaders in the pass for the legs. Thanks for the input Alan.

I will post some wireframe images soon
