Quote from: sboerner on December 30, 2018, 01:32:50 pmThanks all. Only a few models left. I can nearly see the light at the end of the tunnel and have started planning the next landscape, which in some ways will be simpler than this one.That's my Canada goose model. The mesh took just a couple of hours but then I spent much of the next day working on the texture. Tried painting it by hand but I'm no artist. After a couple of false starts I ended up piecing it together from parts of licensed stock images.I don't have much experience with modeling and rigging organic shapes and have decided that it's time to change that.
Quoteyou could convert that Canada Goose to a Golden Goose by selling it at Danny's NWDA...just a thought.

I appreciate that you think it might be worthy of NWDA. But the stock-image textures would present a licensing issue, even though they've been modified beyond recognition.

But texturing is indeed the most time-consuming part. I may have to do some species of ducks in various postures, but I'm not looking forward to it
QuoteIt's really too bad there isn't a Poser or DAZ for Fauna instead of the dress up dolls they currently market...That'd be really handy.

Quote from: sboerner on January 30, 2019, 12:32:27 pmModel of Studebaker farm wagon, c. 1910. This is probably the last artifact for the scene. Just need to add horses, a driver and some produce. That and a few more human figures and we can call this done. My insistence on creating all original models is stretching this out beyond all reason . . . but I'm learning a lot and bottom line, it's been fun.
QuoteI hear the 'beyond all reason' bit...when I moved home to do 'Mom Care' to keep her in her home I had a lot of free time and was just learning modeling so I measured and modeled every feature of this 1905 bungalo. Mom used to chuckle every time I came up from the basement to measure and sketch something else. Did it inside and out and it only took a year heh heh heh...went out the window in my first computer in a burglary some time ago and I've naught but a very basic frame and basement ...maybe I'll do that up again...it was a lot of fun I agree
QuoteYeah once you get started it can be hard to stop. You just keep drilling down and adding more detail. ...
