What if you could bring back prehistoric monsters. AND RULE THE WORLD


(IllusiveBear) #1

A boy dreams of bringing back the dinosaurs. Is this a mad man in the making or just a harmless dream?

I really wanted to make someting about a childs imagination and the games you used to play as a kid. And haven't we all travelled back in time and tamed dinosaurs after reading too much Calvin & Hobbes?

I started out making some sketces, as one usually does. And I took inspiration from my old toys and our washing machine.

Then I started making some 3d using my pal 3ds max

Next up will be the child and his oversized shirt.

Hey man, thanks for the reply.
For now I am using an unlit scene in 3ds max with the "Standard" material and in Sketchfab I use the defult settings with the classic renderer and lit shading.
The standard settings in Sketchfab are acually really nice for the style I go for in my other models as well.

Update here: Done with the body of the character. Because of all the folds on his shirt I just modeled the entire thing in a pose. I think that will be faster than trying to rig and skin everything. Next up will be the face and hands.
