Major Kudos for imagining the Pavulean and pulling it off. I was reading the book and was mesmerised by how they would look. Thanks so much for putting the time and effort into it!

I confess I never tried very vard to imaginbe what a Pavulean actually looked like but this recognisably is one, so that clears that up.

You know,this topic of overstrecthed polys has got me thinking.
I skipped any photoshop retouch (bar cropping and resizing) in this pic,so it is what I saw as a render on ZBrush.
It begins to make me wonder how "finished" a model you require depends on the eventual goal.
This was done as fun and learning,nothing more or less..
I mean,I could go back and remesh the model,or I could go back into photoshop and smooth,draw and smudge the problem areas..maybe someday I will,but in the meantime,I've got BIGGER beasts to fry...;)
Thank you ALL for your wonderful insightful comments though!
DAMN! I never even got this level of peer help in Art college.. YAY! DA!!

Damn, fangs maps are stretchy! what a shame! separation between hooves and skin could be better, also. ears seem much more low poly than the rest, nose seem flat...

for the rest: amazing work!
