A glimpse at the Tin Deer

Auriea's picture
Hi Everydeer!

Those of you who've pledged are wondering what the Tin Deer is all about. I don't generally draw the pelts and masks before I make them, so I was wondering how I could show you something before the campaign to support The Endless Forest ends on December 27th.

I decided it's simplest just to show you some renders of the work in progress!
It's not done yet of course, and how it will be textured I leave up to your imagination for the moment. He's kinda got a goggles and horns semi-steampunk thing going on. Eye

If we can get enough to remake the game in Unreal engine, there are so many cool things we can do texture-wise that are simply not possible in the 2005 game engine the Forest is in now. We can make metal look like metal! We can make things *really* glow! We can have amazing particle effects! I look forward to making stuff that goes beyond all our dreams, makes them real!, and then makes us dream new dreams!

I'm all for it.

Lovely design.

Glowing and particle effects,

Glowing and particle effects, you say? Very tantalizing. Hope we can make it to the remake!

The antlers and mask are amazing and I'm so curious to know what the whole set looks like with textures.
Thanks for sharing a sneak peak with us, Auriea!

I'm SO EXCITED for the prospect of 'Unreal' rendered textures!!! Antlers and masks made of wood having visible grain, maybe in the future, would be so cool.

Hyping for trumpets — once again?
