Giant Bull Ant WIPs

Recommended Posts

A few hours into this Bull Ant model I posted in the members challenge area.

 

I worked on a couple of drawings on paper and then in Procreate.  I almost always do a drawing or two so I can try and figure out what shapes I'm going to be working on.

After that I put a few hours into the mesh.  Time to refine!

    wow, very cool to see drawing skills to! :respect: 

    I feel like it really helps things along.  Regardless of when the drawings turn out or not, it forces me to really look at the shapes etc.  Thanks for checking out the post!

    Thanks!  I put another 6-8 hours into this model.  I still have to do the "mouth parts" and clean it up before UV's and texturing.  There are a lot of messy bits....  The butt was a pain in the.... but I think it's working now.

    Lols, I started with the back-end of mine, hence v slow progress so far - you're right - segmentation and multi-aligned panels like that is always a challenge, and mine's entire body is made of those  :) Yours is looking great tho...
