Houdini Modeling II

Welp, I finished that guy. I discovered a bunch of options and little tricks that helped make the rest of this go so much quicker. Very exciting to know that I can model a full character in Houdini now.

Golden-Maned Ostrungul

Slow Sunday = creature designs.

 This is the Golden-Maned Ostrungul (Ostrungula aurocapillis). This is a male showing off his crest, which floods with blood during the rutting season; giving it it's pinkish hue. These animals are about 9 ft tall at the shoulder, and use their claw-like hooves to dig up invertebrates, mollusks, and crustaceans hiding in the riverbeds.
