    Not part of the arctic set of creatures. Just for fun.

    -They are the largest living terrestrial animals
    -Can reach a height of 13 ft and weigh as much as 15,000 lb
    -They have long lifespans, reaching 60-70 years of age.
    -They have an amazing walk cycle.

    The shading on this is absolutely fantastic. I'd love to see a game or film utilize low-poly characters, with extremely detailed shading.

    These are great! one question, are you beveling the edges, or just keeping it as a hard edge with more tolerance on the phong shading angle?

    Sometimes they can find underground water sources from ancient collective memory! Awesome work!

  25. Another test print. Wanted to try something a little larger this time. This little guy took 9+ hours at .100 setting [low] and is about 4" long. This is post-bath, pre-sanded. [hence the little support marks].

    A few casualties, guessing from the weight/awkward angle of the supports: his head split into two pieces and lost his main trunk. It's barely hanging on, going to have to glue together using resin + laser pointer. [Yeah, awesome suggested technique I read on the forum. Works.]

    Pre-print, in PreForm software here.

    Mid-print shot here.

    Post-print, pre-clipping supports off shot here.

    Yes, that's a large bucket of 91% Isopropyl Alcohol behind him. That's where these guys take their baths.

    Having a lot of fun with this [massively time-consuming] machine. Can't wait to get better at using it.
