First Test Sculpt For The Chuhuac


Good news!

Pedro sent me pics of the first completed test sculpts for the Chuhuac. My initial impression is that he has done a great job of capturing the level of detail I had been hoping for. There are a few details I have asked him to revisit, but they are really just minor tweaks on detailing and body scaling.

Thanks for looking,

  4. Certainly captures a lot of the elements I liked; though personally, the tail end hair strikes me as too splayed out, would be better streamlined and thinner, more dorsal/ventral alignment. That would be my only critique with a really cool sauroid sci fi killer :D

  5. I have address the plumage on the tail. I am not so much bothered by the plumage on the neck, but i have also addressed the head and nose adornment.

  6. Gorgeous Eli. Seriously fantastic work. Personally, I reckoned the tail looked great, but oh well.

  7. The tail seemed a bit too "poofy". I finally put my finger on it but it reminded of the tails on the Fraggles from Fraggle Rock. I have suggested to Pedro that he try to define the individual feathers a bit more and arrange them on a vertical plane like a rooster tail at the end of the tail.

  10. Awesome! I'd buy some! However, I'd agree with the concerns over the tail feathers plus the tail looks a little pole like to me. Plus the fiure looks a little front heavy to be balanced. However, the concept is brilliant!
