Galapagos Giant Tortoise WIP #6

I've done a test pose for the tortoise with a bit of cactus fruit that they apparently eat. The depth of field is done in Mental ray and takes for ever to render. Some of the maps still need a bit of touching up but otherwise this model is nearing the end. If I can figure out a way to get it to render quicker I might be able to do some animations with him. Thanks to Greg Tatum for some useful advice.


  1. The head still looks really good, and the shell looks really freaking good. Needs some more of those white spots on the top all over it a bit or something.

    The yellow on the neck stops too suddenly towards the bottom, and there are some weird black dots on his neck, but that might be the render.
