Results I got from my "Pose Sliders" Tutorial (I added the sandstone texture
in Photoshop), the complete V6.1 project file is available for download from
my tutorial page. Enjoy! Many thanks to Andrew Weiler who provided
the color map in his tutorial on decaling for brand X.

Modeled in Hash's AM98 Beta4 in just under four hours! I attribute some
of my new abilities to reading and applying lessons learned from
Jeff Paries's book "The Animation:Master Handbook." Thanks Jeff!

Lady Venus

“Lady Venus” – AM98 Image

One of the fabled "Snail-Riders of Fern," Lady Venus is known throughout many lands
for her legendary bravery and prowess. Lady Venus once worked for the Septaurian
Lumber Company thinning and tending a forest of Bobo trees, when a group of
misguided environmentalists beamed down and started a major ruckus. During the battle
with one of the leaders of the raid, Lady Venus injured her left knee and had it
replaced by the Borg. She now cruises the Galaxy with her trusty mount, and
with her stable boy, Jeff, searches for the last remaining members of the infamous
“Septaurian Bobo Forest Raiders.” Many is the fleeing bandit who has had cause
to rue the masterful way in which Venus handles her thoroughbred mount.


“Alien Tina Turner”
This was a hair test, and to my surprise the
render reminded me of Tina... Skirts are Darktree Textures.
