Charging Kudu, Bill Melvin (3D)



Title: Charging Kudu
Name: Bill Melvin
Country: USA
Software: CINEMA 4D, Photoshop, ZBrush

The Kudu model was an entry in the HCR MINI-Challenge #10: Animals in Motion contest. I finally decided to put it in an environment. I started the model in Cinema 4D. I sculpted and textured it in ZBrush. The hair and grass was created in Cinema as well, using the Hair Module. I combined the renders in Photoshop where I also created the stormy sky. Here is the link to the WIP thread:

I like Cinema 4D and found it easy to learn. I use it a lot for creating 3d elements for illustration work. I heard that C4D was the illustratorís app of choice. I canít compare the learning curve to Max or Maya since Iíve never used those apps, but have heard consistently that C4D is generally easy to learn. I also use Modo.

Having grown up in South Africa and having had plenty of experience with Kudu, I have to say, this one is superb. The energy and flow of the animal is spot on, however I think the title should rather be "Fleeing Kudu"! When charging, Kudu lower their horns, intending to ram and injure their oponents. They hold their head high in flight, making it easier to see their way around the dense bush they inhabit.
Excellent peice, well done!
