Ok back in the saddle of modding after the devastation of losing my rafa mods yes my unicorn too I decided I would have to start messing with manda v2 file... of course starting with a thoroughbred specialising in racing hehe
I'm looking for some constructive criticism and I'll make regular updates on the progress everything i do to the left I also fix in lnz to match on the right so it is square and even. Got some quick halter shots left and right line to prove they're even.
-I started work on tail (cause the tail flips me off when I get racing poses now you can get every shot without your horse being seemingly impaled by its tail lol) -made wither more prominent (as it is with taller (16hh+) tbs in general) -Tried to make the lumbosacral area more defined/pointed/sharp angled (think it needs moving further over to lumbar area) -Made a deeper chest -tucked belly higher toward flank (for athletic look not emaciated) -larger rib cage (enlarged ball before the belly slightly) -Moved neck forward and down along with head to define the thoroughbred stance more at the gallop -Foal has been barely impacted by modifications My Googled References Reference Reference Reference Reference *Note I haven't start face/head yet if you'd like to see a certain style of TB face link me some references or explain scribble if you need a few second opinions is always helpful*
This looks cute! The only suggestions I have so far is to fiddle with the mane a bit and maybe move it forward some and maybe round out the hindquarters a bit. As well as, if you can, make the tail not be so straight from the butt to that first ball there. The super straight line just looks a little harsh in the standing poses. I mean it's obviously not natural, but you could maybe slant it down a tad and still have it look good while moving.
THANK YOU SO MUCH Jewellz the tail was off I 'mummy' eyed it and thought nah its fine but so glad I moved it down looks less harsh I think now. -Tail was lowered and rearranged (think it was also messing with the hindquarters before as it slopes better together now) -Rounded hind quarters (lifted bum slightly over hip balls) -Moved mane forward and played around for that groomed but messy racing look. -edited Stallion junk (not necessary but wanted the file as unique as possible from its base v2 1a as possible) -Foal is still fine from modding
Ok also bit the bullet and started on face I quite like it think forelock needs tweaking. -moved entire face nostrils lipline included to try and morph it to look TB -Moved forlock to sit on the offside rather than showside (easier to edit hoods/bridles etc. -Moved ears to be shorter and set back slightly. -Unfortunately the foals face was destroyed after modifications were made something of a horror really with a floating muzzle.
Finished my mod I'm happy with it as it is now might make a variation with the default tail for those wanting the breed without race type tail. If you'd like a copy now leave your email and I'll send them out. I will when I get the variation without race type tail complete go about getting the file up on the SS Library for you all.
Now with tail variation (it moves as the 1a does from below base/dock area)
comes with PW dummy *not exact (as balls moved from playable version when converted to dummy so I manually moved a few but it gives the user a better insight to the finished product of their racing TB than the original dummy)
Lookin' good! Can I get it too, please? firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you be ok if I make some small changes to it? Just mostly like face/mane/forelock stuff to customize it for each horse. If not, I won't mess with it, but just thought I'd ask because I like tweaking mods to be a bit more unique or personal. I make my own mods too but mostly I like other people's with just a couple small changes more than what I do on my own haha.
