Changeling by Shastro Changeling by Shastro
Breakdown here: youtu.be/V3BBnsazWo4


Decided to start giving these a title as I move forward, though I do hope it was easy to tell that this was supposed to be a changeling, rather than just knowing from the title :D

Made this changeling a little more organic and different than the Chrysalis I made awhile back, with the design built upon references by Tsitra360 and AssasinMonkey but with my own stuff thrown in as well. Tried out some new things with this one, and overall I'm 90% happy with how it came out, and I think it looks pretty damn menacing.

I couldn't help but wonder why the changelings actually have fangs beyond just to make them creepier for the show, its not like they hunt deer out in the forest.

Hope you enjoy!

Made with Blender, and Photoshop

This reminds me of the Gorn from Star Trek TOS.

Very well done.

Changeling blood is green, so the inside of the mouth should also be green. Too many people forget that everything red/pink on your body is colored by your blood, so they just give changelings normal-colored mouths.

Probably because even in the series the mouth inside of changlings are "red/pink".
I give you a tip, say "Thank you for this amazing artwork." and save the world from being "to smart".

Now I think maybe the insides of their mouths aren't colored by their blood because there's something red/pink right underneath whatever you call the "skin" inside your mouth and they use that to not have green mouths when they transform

You should have used a different texture. This looks like a painted sculpture.

From the thumbnail I thought this was a clay sculpture out in meatspace, not a digital creation. Seeing the image at full size I'm still not convinced that it isn't a real physical object. Well done.

The short snout and thick neck make the proportions a bit different, but by Jove those shaders are glorious! (as usual)
Exceptional job on the mouth, especially, and interesting take on the eyes.

I cant help but feel that it's skin feels a bit off, like its made of rubber.

True true, I definitely didn't go with a traditional style skin shader, though atm I pretty bad at realistic skin shaders, though at the same time I'm not necessarily sure how to improve that, beyond trying to adjust the bump map and maybe throwing in some subsurface scattering, or even sculpting skin pores. 

Thanks for the feedback tho, I'll have to make sure to nail it when I do actual ponies next

Wow. Since I've read the official comic back in 2013 (where the inside of the changeling mouth is blue) I always thought of this as the correct color. Now I checked pictures from the show and it's not blue. MY LIFE IS A LIE.

Jokes aside, that is really cool. When I saw the thumbnail size, I thought this would be a real, handmade statue. Color me impressed.

Thanks for the complement, though the body is not finished since for this month I'm focusing on facial practice, I'll put up a post later with some different angles and some other stuff

(Due to the lighting) I'm getting a taxidermy feel. But don't get me wrong...it looks like a 100% genuine real object!! Is it only best from this view or can we see some other shots of it too? It's by far the coolest 3D Changeling model yet by miles!

I can send some other angles, though there is some weird unfinished stuff on the otherside that would make it unsuitable for anything like a turntable, though I need to get out of that habit so I can make some more turntables XD

Though it would be fine at some other angles as well

I see what you meant on unfinished on the YouTube turnable you did, (unfinished as in uneven level of detailing because the main view got ALOT of detailing attention).

I need to break that habit too with some of my models, especially the Zypher. That thing one-sided as could be. But, that's how 5 AM submission end up I guess. :)
