Eoin Cannon's Sketchbook: Galpagos Giant Tortoise WIP #4  I've done some more sculpting on this model and also mapped the pieces of the model and exported some low res displacement maps to test that things are working as they should be. I've comped the wireframe over the top to show the underlying geometry. I'm looking forward to texturing this guy now although there is a fair bit of cleaning up and sculpting to do in Zbrush first.

Residents in Tokyo have recently reported several sightings of possibly the most patient pet-walker in the world: an elderly man who takes his enormous African spurred tortoise (or sulcata) out for walks around the town. Judging by the tortoise’s size, the mysterious pair has probably been together for a very long time, and the tortoise always plods faithfully by its owner’s side. It even tolerates the occasional silly costume!          Sources: togech.jp www.boredpanda.com
