One of the main goals behind aQtree (an NPR platform we’re developing) is the hope that it will act as a bridge between researchers and artists. It occurred to me that there are many realms in visualization where these interests overlap… like medical illustration and paleoart. Fastforward to me watching yet another dinosaur documentary and being specifically annoyed at the poorly executed 3D presenting creatures that even I – a paleoamateur – knows to be false. Instead of switching away, I went and modeled procompsognathus. A quick pose later and I could throw him in aQtree v0.0. Here’s the result. Need some solid, fine line treatment but overall a promising experiment. Whatcha think?
P.S. did procompsognathus have an overbite? I modeled in a morph target in case he does.
