Well, quite a lot has happened actually. But nothing really significant to the model itself.
I've decided on the colour and the cutie mark (sort of) and applied them. I edited the objects a bit with different
materials and I added some simple lighting to the scene.
I've studied UV mapping and texturing a lot the past few days and it has proven to be quite difficult. For example, I added a cutie mark, but it won't render properly.
It looks good in default editing mode, but whenever I switch to High Quality or try to render the scene, it disappears and several small blurry dots appear here and there over the object-body. So these are some minor problems I have to fix first.
However I've continued on other things as well, so I could take my mind of off UV's now and then.
Like I have shown some people in the chatroom I've started to really 'study' the pony anatomy and proportions as they are done in the show.Page 1 of Pony anatomy and porportions study.
I realized my ponies are quite far out of proportion (legs compared to rump, rump to head and head to legs), not to forget that the eyes don't cover at least 1/3rd of the side of the face. As I really want to nail it in the next model (which will be rigged and readied for animation), I'm gonna go all in on this.
I've been drawing a new mane and tail for Virtual Reality as well. I guess I could consider his default looks 'done'.
I'll post some sketches of him when they are presentable.
