Modelled and animated by Torsten Schneyer, Anders und Seim neue Medien AG.
Bored of the cartoon-like modeled whale-meshs? This is a realistic one!
A dedailed model of a one biggest creatures on earth, the humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae), wich is the most common of the bigger whales and well known from movies and tv-docus. Use this model, if you need an anatomical correct whale in your animation or game.
This great whale-mesh comes in two levels of datail: a high resolution version (155004 polygons) and a low resolution version for realtime projects (1936 polygons).
The HiRes-textures (1024x1024), including a bump map, are made of real whale skin shots and some photoshop painting.
The whale is fully rigged and equipped with 26 bones, to garant usability for any swimm-animations. Only restriction: the mouth is modeled closed and can not be opened.
The rigging supports all kind of swimming, bending the body and moving/bending the fins in all directions.
There is an smooth swim-cycle included in the lws-file.
