philly's stuff

Here is/was my project thread, check it out for my older stuff.

This is the place where I will post my projects in the future, there are various reasons for that I will explain later in this post. First how will this work in the future ?

That's a simple question to answer, I will show my stuff here, but keep I mostly as PU. I may release some projects, but I will then put up a message in my ZT2 project thread or you will see a release video on my YouTube channel.

Now why. Not so easy to answer. For once I don't think my projects get much appreciation. I tried to make things the people like ( and I also like ), but it is sort of annoying that none actually uses them. I only found 4 of all my releases during the last bit of time in S&Ts, and that even when some of the animals are on several wish lists. I know I can't force people to use them, but it still is annoying to do something without any use. I could have made animals I would have preferred instead, so I wasted my time.
Then I see that less and less Dino Parks are build and that all use the same animals, so I don't think anyone needs mine anyway, so I have no reason to release anything as well.
On the other hand I am becoming slower in designing and am pretty unstable in releasing, so this allows me to be a bit more flexible.

Project 1: Pneumatoraptor fodori


Posted Image

Reason:
Three reasons, I wanted it, I wanted a basic model for dromaeosaurs ( and relatives ) and I wanted to see how a beak looks on a raptor.

Information:
Pneumatoraptor was a Hungarian paravian ( basal dromaeosaurid ?) living in the freshwater basin of Csehbánya Formation. I think of it as a small ( 70 cm long ), heron like animal that mainly preyed on fish and other water animals. the skin comes mostly from the Great or Eurasian Bittern, but I strayed away from its body colours for a more redundant ( too redundant I fear, but it isn't that important ). I still like the outcome. the skin isn't excellent, I know, but at least better than one made with paint, and for a two hour work, it isn't that bad.

well the model is nice but I think the skin needs some improvements; more texture on the beak, and the plain white belly contrasts too much with the rest of the skin IMo, I think some small spots on it would help ;)

The model looks excellent, though I agree with Furka here : the belly should also be patterned, and I advise using a parrot bill texture for the beak. The skin, as you said, is also too repetitive : adding a gradient or overlaying a washed metal texture would help.

I DLed your ca....ichthyosaur, psitacosaurus, istiodactylus and one other I forgot. I have been looking for your stuff cause you've done some things that I have not seen other people do.

People enjoy realism so there are more remakes then there are new things. I hope to see more pterosaurs, ichthyosaurs, ect from you. Talent is something few see.

Thank you for the comments. I have reinstalled Spore ( finally with working patch 5 ) and now finally managed to make an account ( no more "." in my password ), but somehow I can't connect with the spore server. Does anyone else also have that problem ?

Stupid spore. I just can't create an account. Maybe I should try again *sigh*

I have not been on spore in a while. So I don't know.

Project 2: Velociraptor mongoliensis


Posted Image


The reason this is PU is simple. It sucks. Yellow is probably the worst colour for a skin in my opinion. But since the novel Velociraptor looked like that, it had to be. The reason I made this is that I might probably make a JP S&T and in my opinion the novel canon beats the movie one. The model is just a 4-minute edit of the Pneumatoraptor and so it doesn't meet my modelling standards.

( BTW: I don't even Velociraptor like that, for me it is more in the grey-blue or white ( thank you, Dinosaur Planet ) direction )

not the most realistic skin i've seen, but it's JP, so I think it looks nice.
oddly enough, my edition of TLW has raptors with green stripes instead of brown (unlike the ones in JP which are the same colour as yours).

I can't see much texture. xD But that is the reason(as you said) is it's PU. But I think the model is great and doesn't looks like a 4-minute edit, Because it looks amazing ! Overall I love it. ;)

Great work! But I thought Crichton described the raptors as a more tannish with yellow hues..

I agree with Ovi, also (personal preference) shouldn't it have no feathers? Other then that epic work buddy.

Thank you, I thought of it as more yellowish, basically since most artwork of the novel Velociraptor show it yellow.

davidy12: Bah, I won't rape a Velociraptor by plucking its feathers. First there are no reasons to say it didn't have feathers, in fact it is only said it had scales on the head ( mine also has ) , secondly I won't use any dromaeosaur without feathers so it would be kind of weird to make one for myself that I won't use :)
