This is a photorealistic model of an emperor penguin for Softimage 7.5 and up. Fully textured, with hair, rigged and animated. Materials are setup and ready for rendering with Mental Ray. Texture maps for diffuse and specular also included. Please watch downloadable preview files to see more.
Scene file comes with whole Softimage project - just unrar it and use.
Model is skinned and fully rigged for realistic animation. Rig has intuitive and animator friendly controls. Any control can be translated like on top of IK or anything to get pose you want. It gives more freedom while animating and less stiffness in motion.
For rendering it requires free shaders which give better look: puppet shaders pHair and pHairShadow. You can google it and download for free ( with other shaders from puppet worth looking). If you don't want to bother with custom shaders you can use material with standard shaders available in the scene file.
Hair material is specially designed to get illumination from surface - so it is possible to light model and scene with complex lighting techniques like image based lighting and GI without tricky compositing (you can make hair pass though)
Model comes with animation - a realistic walk cycle. It can be on place or with real tranformations - just disable or enable animation on m_moveAll_CTL
