request for muscle diagrams
Does anyone know of a site where I can find muscle diagrams? I always struggle to find them and in particular a anteater muscle diagram (or an animal of similar build)

oh and heres a good elephant bone layout (african female)
http://www.biologycorner.com/resourc...antanatomy.gif
for mammoth one layout just such for 'mammoth anatomy' in google images
good example- http://pasleybrothers.com/jeff/image...th_diagram.jpg
no luck with any pachyderm muscle diagrams though

and a little warning, dont search for 'mammoth muscles' with safe search off *shudder*

Footage + hdri
Hi,

if anyone knows any sources (preferably free) where one can get footage bundled with HDRI for tracking and rendering that would be great,

cheers

Hi guys!

I just watched through your "Realistic Eye" tutorial, and it was pretty darn good! I wonder if you would consider making a tutorial or two on Photoshop texture creation for model-building. I was pretty impressed with the demonstration of luminance, bump and specular map building via Photoshop in the Realistic Eye tutorial. But, ... you sure blew through that stuff quickly.

Maybe it's just me, but I think a lot of us could benefit from some lessons - particularly that might start with the objectives or properties of good bump and specular and luminance maps, and then the rest of the tutorial on how to get those kinds of goals accomplished in Photoshop. I've always wanted to know how to build decent bump maps - how to desaturate and improve contrast, etc., but the fact is that I don't really have any idea of what I'm shooting for to begin with. Surely I'm not the only person just aimlessly banging away at this topic. ???????

Hey Forester

Thanks we are glad you enjoyed it. Yeah we can do a texture tute for sure. We do have to bomb thru stuff from time to time to get stuff out. As you may or may not know, some of us guys work full time in the industry and time is not always on our side. Anyway excuses aside I will have a chat with admin on a good texture tute.

cheers
Jay
