Oh boy, its hard to believe a year ago I first tried to model furries (I'm a 3D modeler) and thought this was good:
wyvLlbY.jpg

300k tri's, bad proportions, weird head going on, weird knees and overall weird. Muscles look really good at that angle but absolutely horrible at any other angle. Oh and the texture, gah! HORRIBLE! ... Actually this feels much longer then a year ago..


Anywho, moving on. This is how far I've vastly improved in modeling since 2016 - Late 2018:

(You can find other views as well as some modeling progress pictures here.)
Oh but it doesn't stop there. That's right, 2 weeks later I modeled another character, not only modeled but decided to texture it as well.
(Alternate pose / render for better model detail can be found here and here. And if you're wondering, its inspired by Jin Roh)

Both characters above are vast improvements of my modeling, with the female shark being a little under 15,000 (Including both uzis, without them she is under 10,000 which is awesome because my poly budget for her was 10,000 polygons.) And the Jin Roh shark being around 15,500 polygons with the MG-42, without he is 10,550.

Oooooh these are my favs! I recently did a redraw of one of the older things I have on DA!! I've also included something SUPER old from one of my first online accounts just for fun lol

First is from 2008 and one of the first things I ever drew digitally!!

I didn't really do anything in 2015 so I'm considering 14' and 15' the same.

All this year. I can't tell you how PROUD I am of these, all of them. I had no idea I could paint (thank you college) and also the commission above (purple fox) came out LIGHTYEARS better than I could have EVER imaged all those years ago. I'm so happy with my recent improvements and I hope I can continue to get better.

The first furry I ever made digitally compared to what I can do now. Never give up!

I'm no artist, so there's not exactly much improvement here, but why the heck not

Oh man I thought this would be harder since I don't really keep my old art (because it hurts, man. it hurts.) but I found this gem.

Art from August 2016: sta.sh: Tooommmm

Same character from about a week ago: sta.sh: Clothing

It, uh, it feels really good. I feel a lot better about doing art today, so thank you for this thread.
What's this? TOM is evolving!
