One of these Fridays I'll do a short video showing how to create the fur effect. It's kinda cool.
Please do! I would love to see how you create fur on game models.

Something just doesn't seem right in the 3 month old pup model. I think it's the snout... that it is too long... maybe you could try to reshape it? Everything else on the model looks awesome!

are you guys gonna up the polycount on the original pup, maybe mess around with the mesh? it feels a teensy bit outdated! also would you mind posting a pic of the new wolf rig? i'm super interested in how you guys did it.

edit; the corner of the mouth on the adult wolf also seems to go back a bit far, iunno!

Heh, this was addressed on the first page.

The family looks adorable all together. I'm really looking forward to seeing these animated and moving around in-game. I also always appreciate how much research goes into trying to make the game as accurate as possible; thank you for showing Luna to us!

This actually looks much better from this view, it must just be the angle that makes the model look awkward in the picture with the three of them.

Can you please not change the second Blacktail Deer Plateau pelt's pretty golden pup? I love it so much, it's very unique. I'd love for it to stay.

Can't wait to see how the teen pup animates, because I can't get over how goofy and cute it looks in the image. I do agree with those claiming that the head angle seems a little too off, but of course it could just be the way the image shows it.

Thanks for giving us the constant updates! I find that I'm checking WolfQuest a lot more than I used to, and it's nice to see the community active.

That process video is something that I'm realllly stoked for. As an animation and design fanatic, I'd love to see the process of putting the model together, fixing it up, rigging, and even the animation!

Lol, I just read this like it's "awkward" to play WolfQuest. But ya, I catch your real point.

Though this account won't show it, I've been lingering in the community since 2010. I never thought I would get to see this new episode come to life. I'm super excited for this, and the teen wolf model looks pretty amazing. Keep up the good work :)
