Mixed lighting doesn’t look that good, on head and neck I used Luminance while on frill Onto blend method.

Wow that took hours to make, I’m still trying to figure out how to do lighting. But I learned to not use synfig sketch

So it took some thinking but I figured out how to make blade that actually looks like metal blade

Wait, is this Khopesh? I initially thought it’s some kind of druid’s staff… I think you need a bit more details (both lighting because bronze and things like clear edge bevel) because now it looks very similar to dry wood.

Yes it is khopesh. Hmm now that I look at it you’re right. I’m gonna need to look at more references how swords look like.
It has clear edge but perhaps it’s too small compared to outline and sword

My first try at explosion, I’m not entirely satisfied with it

Oh my god it took me so long to do it, but I can’t say it wasn’t a learning experience how to deal with bones and time loops

Nice :slight_smile:

Just be careful, the move of the tail is not natural, it works as balancing system to maintain the inertia.
It swings up and down to compensate the vertical “pumping” because it runs.
And right/left to compensate the derivation of direction, to maintain the race in a straight line.
It is bipedal, the action of the legs on the pelvis makes it turn and the “wobble” of the tail is propagated through the spine and keeps a straight direction after all. (like for this arrow)

(watch it in slow-mo)

Here the T-Rex only walks, so (almost) only the lateral move occurs.

Good luck :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot, I honestly wanted to try out if tail movement like this could have worked. Tail is too short to balance the rest of the body anyway but this is character from a game

Bezier curves for closed polygon, since it’s not open you can basically go forever making smaller and smaller Bezier curves so I settled for “depth” 1 (1 triangle inside big one) on the left and depth 5 (5 triangles inside big one)
