The Wolf & Dulci Hour celebratory turtle

Yes, tomorrow marks one whole year of the Wolf & Dulci Hour weekly podcast radio shows! So, to celebrate, here’s a free Wolf & Dulci Hour One Year Anniversary Turtle (12Mb .zip file). Yes, a turtle. Because I seem to remember Wolf saying he wanted a low-poly turtle like the big sea-turtles in Finding Nemo.

Is it Disney, or is it iClone? It’s iClone, with a little help from Spore.

This is packed in a lit iClone project, and is from a fan-made Spore model via 3DXchange 4 Pro — so it’s rigged and can be animated! No complex legs, so just use iClone’s motion editor to flap those articulated flippers. The shell isn’t perfect, but you could probably fit another one over the top of it or retexture it. The pack includes textures and the original .fbx file. It weighs in at just 15,000 polys, so you can have a crowd of them in the scene. Thanks to Vegeta, whose Spore turtle I heavily modified and retextured in Creature Creator. Thanks to Felipe Skroski for a Creative Commons photo that formed part of the background and foreground layer. Please credit Spore if you use it in an iClone movie, and give Wolf & Dulcie a mention too.

  1. Thanks! Maybe when I’ve finished my first film? I’ve only been using iClone for a matter of weeks – and, in terms of my film, I’ve taken a major learning and pipeline-building detour over the past month. Hence all the blogging. But progress on it should start again soon – if I don’t get sidetracked again by the big sci-fi competition (and that somewhat depends on how desirable the prizes are…). So, maybe you could pencil me in sometime in the summer?
