Macrochelys temminckii [Alligator Snapping Turtle]
This was my third sculpt from my college final and an asset on my demo reel. It was a very fun project! I wanted a challenge with my “non-traditional” sculpt and set myself apart from the others in my class. So I decided to go with a turtle, a great mixture of organic AND hard surface in one piece.
This project alone taught me so much in sculpting. All the alphas I used were custom made for each section, from the arm plates to the “web-like” patterns on his shell.
He is currently in line with my other demo reel assets to be fully textured as well as production lit/rendered.
