Ostrich U A Merry Christmas

Hey everyone! I've seen an animal rendition of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" going round that made me laugh, so I made this. More Zbrush & Keyshot shenanigans. Played with fibermesh for feathers, and I've been reading up on how Zbrush fibermesh systems can be exported as Maya fur, so maybe I'll be able to animate this guy one day! (when I get back to the land of broadband and can watch tutorial videos) :)

Ermagerd, Christmas!

Ermagerd, hert cherclet with mershmerlers! Barkley is enjoying the ugly Christmas sweater party very much, he just has resting growly face. Since I'm away from my desktop, this was rendered on my Surface Pro tablet in Keyshot, I had to reduce the fibermesh from Zbrush down to 2 sided just to get him to export! Grooming brushes in Zbrush are cryptic, but fun to play with.  Hope you're all enjoying some good times, holiday cookies and "hert chercklit" right now!

Bonus fun fact: To cut down on render time, I removed the fur from his backside, LOL!
