Capra Canis Nubiana, the Desert Goat-Hound, is a hybrid creature based on a Nubian Ibex and a sighthound. The model was made over several weeks using Modo, then textured in Zbrush and rendered in Maya with Redshift.

  • Designed original hybrid creature based on two different animals
  • Created proportional orthographic drawings and modeled from them
  • Emphasized good edge flow to allow for future rigging and animation
  • Sculpted and painted topological detail to create displacement, normal, and roughness maps
