This model's a concept for the Fossil / Archaeology Mod by Flammarilva. You can view his thread here: [link]
Was supposed to upload this yesterday but...eh. Hope this color scheme nostalgia's some of ya *cough*WWD Ophthalmosaurus*cough*.
Like its Mo'Creatures counterpart, the Ichthyosaurus functions the exact same way as an excellent mount. Only difference is its tame from the get-go. Feed it plenty of fish too, as the kind gesture will be payment enough for lifting your blocky rump across the water.

This is one of my favorite pictures of your mods, eh quick question. how on earth do you do the textures? I got the model maker recently to make a mod but the oddly shaped ones are harder to make -_-; any advice?
Oh, I make all my textures in Photoshop. When texturing the model however, make sure none of the blocks are overlapping in the Texture Map (in Techne). Otherwise, your texture's going to be distorted when you add them to it.
Before you start a new model, it asks you the dimensions of the texture map you want to go with (for me, I usually go for 64x64, or whatever's higher than the default setting). I believe there's also an option in one of the drop down menus that allow you to change it for existing models.
oh, so you change the size of the texture map itself and load a texture you made to match? neat, but quick refresher, does that mean that you can use the same dimensions you used on your texture map to make a little (hehe little) texture in photoshop?
This is your first model, right? It's not bad for a basic human model. Once you get more comfortable with working with those, you may want to consider going with more abstract model types (e.g. Cows, Pigs, Endermen, etc). But if you want some criticism, this is a wolf right? The snout could probably jut out a bit more to make it stand out more from the head.

These are the F/A mod, as it says by the description. The current team's got my permission to use these for the mod. Aside from that, there's no other plans for them to be made into a separate mod.
