Cactuar

Submitted by tee.dubs
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This model was requested by Rysis, it's supposedly a cactuar from the Final Fantasy series. It's a pretty simple model, good practice for an aspiring modeler like myself. Thanks fo viewin'.


EDIT: Lowered the poly count, and changed the death anim.

EDIT2: Finally got around to fixing it up a little, fixed up the death problem. hopefully is good to go now.

    That's quite a lot of pollies. Probably could reduce it a little bit.

    Just on of those limbs has 108 polies in it. That's 432 polies on just the limbs. They really don't need to be 123 sided. You can reduce them down to 8 sides and still be fine. If you do that you could cut out 128 polies. That's more than one of the limbs.

    I was happy to see someone making Final Fantasy IX models. This Cactuar looks similar to the original in aspect. The original has a more «alive» green.
    Now, the animations... they're not so good, at all. I know they're hard to do, so I'm sorry for the harshness.

    Aww, it should have a spell animation for the 1,000 Needles. Also a model for the needles would be cool. xP

    by all means! you have my full permission.

    Your harshness is fine and welcome, but in all fairness i just followed the instructions of the request, animations were according to the youtube video he provided, but even then i admit they could be better, aswell as the mesh.
    For the texture, i couldnt find a lively green cactus, and i couldn't texture myself to save my life, so im kinda stuck there with this one. thanks for the feedback
