Blazed Pony's OC- [WIP] - Low Poly Turntable by Shastro Blazed Pony's OC- [WIP] - Low Poly Turntable by Shastro
Sorry for the recent spam with this model, but I wanted to do one more fun thing with it before the really difficult parts of the process start (modeling the mouth, modeling batwings, modeling hair, rigging, texturing, and all that stuff) 

There is a Youtube Version (which will load smoother) : youtu.be/ChLMKp413iU 

Also I uploaded this in particular to get any critique that any of you might have, additionally if you have any mouth modeling tips, or bat wing modeling tips, I would very much like to hear them. 

Besides it was loads of fun messing with the lighting in this one.:P

Stay Awesome!

Looks great! though IMO I wouldn't have the back legs slope in so much. But I can tell you're really only showing the mechanical leg, as it's the only thing with the subdivide on. And for that part I don't see anything I would change! Great work as always!

Thank You for the feedback! 

Funnily enough the legs actually have quite low subsurf, I made this because like I said, I wanted to do one more fun thing with it before the hard work begins (making a mouth, bat wings, texturing, rigging, and all that) This was the first time I've shown both the leg and the model together.

Plus I recently saw a cool turntable that had a similar lighting style, and I liked the reflective low polyness of it, so I wanted to see If I could pull something similar off. 

I'll probably reduce the sloping on the back legs, interestingly enough the slope matches up almost exactly with the 2D pony modeling sheet I have, I guess it looks weirder in 3D than in 2D

Thanks Again

There are a lot of things that don't look right in 3D when copied from the show, it's kinda strange how that is. That's sort of the reason I only use a side profile when making a pony model, I just get a rough shape in and go from the 3rd eye for the rest. 

It is a nice turntable one I honestly should make because there are too many people that don't get what I really make when I tell them in person, a few of my moms friends saw the instruments I had made and said "so can you play them" I was just facepalming inside going 'I already said they were CG', I'm hoping they at least figured it out at 1 point XD

Lol! Take their confusion about the instruments as a compliment as they assumed it was a photograph (I think thats what you mean't)

I was just saying what happened, but I had to think of it that way at the end of the day ;P

Looks great! Although I wish the body was smoother.

For the finished version it will look completely smooth, this render was specifically done low poly to show the geometry, and the typology organization for critique purposes. 
Thank You for the Complement and the Comment!

You're making great progress! The body shape looks very solid to me, but I think you could improve the overall proportions of the head a bit. If you render the head with an ortographic camera (front view, side view, maybe at an 3/4 angle), I could give you more specific feedback or do a quick overpaint.

Thank You! 

I might do that, the orthographic front, side, and top views 

The body shape looks good eh? Hmm that was the part I figured was looking the most akward, the proportions came from an MLP base that was used as a modeling sheet, but I agree the head overall seems a little large, and the overall eye area needs work as well. 

The ears might be a little small.

Thanks Again for the feedback! This is my first model, and Comments like this help make sure it'll be the best as it can when its done.
