Character: Martin Bird

This is my latest character, made using Lightwave.

I've just finished the rigging, and proving to myself that I could get the wings animating nicely with managable controls, so I thought I'd post it and update while I do the texturing and general tweaking, finishing off with a test animation.

The Texturing will be quite tricky, lots of layered UV maps for the textured feathers, so it'll be just as challenging as getting the wings working.








UPDATE LINKS--------------------------------------------------------------

Update 1: Rig Description

Update 2: Wing Texture

Update 3: Wing Texture

Update 4: Finished Wing Texture & Surface Layering

Update 5: Head and Body textures

Update 6: Covert textures

Update 7: Leg textures & final tweaking

Update 8: Texture examples

Update 9: Test Flying animation

Update 10: Finished Character Test animation
