It turns out I like creating cute characters as much as I like the evil/cool ones. This little darlin' was made for the "Human/Quadruped Hybrid" contest on CGChat.com, and she took home First Prize! This was the first time I tried using a fairly high-end animation rig and non-spherical eyes on a realtime model. Concept art on the contest page was drawn after model completion in order to meet all the requirements for submission. The texture was completely hand-painted with Painter's fur brush and seams eliminated with the help of Deep-Paint. Soft-shadows and fur sheen were baked using a light dome and reflection map in maya.
