9781584502098: Modeling Digital Dinosaurs (Charles River Media Graphics (Software))

Dinosaurs have fascinated people for centuries. Children are in awe of their incredible sizes and shapes, artists are drawn to their earthy colors and complex textures, and movie producers are inspired by their box office appeal. With today's powerful software and hardware tools, artists can bring these awesome beasts to life with amazingly realistic results. Modeling Digital Dinosaurs explores how to model these fascinating creatures, while teaching modeling skills that can be easily applied to a wide variety of modeling projects. Using a step-by-step approach, every detail of the modeling process is covered from researching the animals to model construction, texturing, and final rendering. All of the techniques are written from a non-software specific approach, providing a useful guide, regardless of your software preference (LightWave, Maya, 3ds max, etc.). You'll learn how to model a Pteranodon, texture the rugged skin on Tyrannosaurus Rex, and render the imposing horns of a Triceratops. And once you've worked through the other dinosaurs and their unique features, you can try creating your own favorite. So let your modeling adventure begin.
