This model took about a year of my life. It`s because of many work reasons,
some lazines :) and main reason - it became very very complex model, so the
modeling was very hard. And the mapping too, the model is completly hand mapped
in Maya. Very hard too was to work on raptor shapes, to think about them
without any previzs or concepts. But after all, I`m very dissapointed with
final result. I`m not satisfied with final picture. It took so much of my time
and energy, I gave up to redesign everythink from scene to model itself. But,
very important for me, was few things. At first, my pipeline - completly wrong
and the model gave me back every mistake I made. I was very immodest and I
thought that in my personal project, I don`t have to plan. Wrong - lesson
learned. In creation process, I put together so meny different shapes which i
liked "right now", but in final point of view, the machine itself can`t work.
In second case, texturing. It beated me up down to the ground. I never did lot
of texturing in my projects, so it could be seen here. It`s very bad, but I
hope that I learned some lessons for future. And after all - composition. It
was last thinkg I though about and now I see, that it was the main big mistake.
I had to think about it first. In last days, I finished the picture, and I dont
like it so much. But I don`t pity the time spent on raptor model. I learned a
lot in ZBrush, modeling, uv mapping, texturing, rendering, rigging and
composition. And I found a lot of mistake I did in past. I hope, that now I`m
little bit illuminated now. Thanks many peoples from internet and my friends
for advices and help. I promise, next time it will be better.
I`m looking for a hipoly modeling job
