  • Dino Tutorial

    I mean it’s ok, but pretty sloppy.
    Retopology definitely not well done.
    Modeling… not the right work flow, you don’t Reproject high details and final alphas at that stage

  • Modeling & Texturing a Dinosaur for Production Bundle

    The modelling section is great except that some critical areas are glossed over [sped up with music] rather than being explained [eg. adding the main muscles/tendons/etc to the feet & hands].
    Otherwise, I am quite enjoying this tutorial.
    BTW – the chapter lists on this webpage for Modelling & Texturing are back to front [ie. the chapters listed for Modelling are actually the ones for Texturing and vice-versa].
