I've been making more progress on the new kirin breed. The last update I showed you wasn't the end point, and what I'm going to show you here isn't quite where I want it yet, but it's a lot closer. I think with a few more tweaks and additions, I'll have the model ready.
I created a video showing the current version of the kirin model. I edited the texture I was using to have some placeholder colors for some of the new body features, just so it is easier to see what is new. When the model is how I want it, I'll make the texture more flashy. :)
If you didn't notice in the video above, you'll see that the kirin is starting to get a little more dragon-like. His beard is fuller, and I like the spiky look over what I had before. He has moving whiskers, and fur on the back of his legs. Unlike horses, his tail is long and snakelike, with a tuft at the end.
What's in the video is a purebred kirin, but be aware that since you can breed kirins with other magical horses, and since the kirin introduces a number of new body features, you'll be able to get some interesting hybrid crossbreeds.
New to YouTube
You'll notice this is my first YouTube video. I'm planning to create more videos, including some with me narrating, going over all the features of the mod, including all the little secret things you may have missed while playing. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you are interested in seeing these future videos as they come out! Any Thumbs Ups (or likes) you put on my videos are also greatly appreciated.
Thank you! :)
