WIP: Xellyr Spider (Creature modelling) – Part 1

Category : Work In Progress ยท by Sep 20th, 2009

I got a sudden urge to do some modelling. So I decided to go for some game creature modelling in 3ds Max and then do some sculpting of details in Mudbox and generate a normal map and also try out texture painting in Mudbox, that’s new to me.

So I decided to go for a giant spider, it is a classical fantasy creature, and I came up with the name Xellyr Spider – just for the heck off it :P

Here are some images of the low-poly, 3ds Max version. It’s 100% quads made up by 4080 triangles. Not very low-poly so let’s call it a next-gen game creature, or a boss creature :)

So all modelling and unwrapping was done in 3ds Max – got to love pelt mapping :D Next step will be to put it in the mudbox and sculpt away – it sure will be fun :)

See you soon for updates, cheers!
