Work In Progress Animatronic Butterfly

Well, I put a picture of this in another thread, but here's my official WIP thread. I intend to make a version with the same dimensions as the Spooky DLC spider (about 4m), and a smaller one (2m). The wings will be recolorable and patterned after those of a monarch butterfly. (Might do a couple other color patterns too, though). The wings, head, and antennae will be animated.

I'll hopefully finish the animation this evening and put up a progress update! I don't have as much time to work on this stuff as I'd like, but I'll get there eventually. :)

 
Excellent ! The textures are amazing and very good animation ! Be careful to the weight (rather Kb than MB ). Go on ![up][up]
 
Fantastic! Lovely work!
You are still on progress on texturing I see. The body shouldn't be pitch black but as you said in progress.

Good luck!
 
Thank you! My goal is to get this uploaded by the end of this weekend. Hopefully. :D

Yep, exactly. I was mainly making sure the wings were right and that I had UV unwrapped the body, legs and other details correctly. Next up is going to be doing a normals map for some additional details on the body, glossiness, as well as some detail painting so it won't be pitch black.

Exactly! Good! :)

But I confess many of what you talk about I do not have much clue about, but I guess I will learn.
Love your work so far, though.
 
A quick update with the body colors and an idea of what the gloss level should look like in game (provided I did everything right!)

I ran into a glitch with the uploader where it looks like the max bones it's set to allow is 8 rather than the 18 listed in the guide. My armature has 10, so I won't be able to upload it until this is fixed. I've got a test upload ready whenever that happens, though! In the meantime, I've a couple less complicated ideas to try out. :D Hope you all can download my butterfly soon, thank you for the support!
