the great and low-poly trixie by egophiliac the great and low-poly trixie by egophiliac
:iconreadplz:

This is a low-poly model made with specific limitations in mind. I appreciate critique, but last time there was some misunderstanding about what I was attempting to achieve (a lot of which was my fault for not being totally clear on it). So, for context: this model is designed to be rendered in realtime on mobile. It is not meant to be 3D-printed, or to imitate any of the high-poly/sculpted pony models that others have made. Please do not suggest things like subdivision or other techniques that would make it unsuitable for its intended purpose. Thanks!

I hope I don't sound snappy, sorry! Internet tone. :iconapplejackfcknoplz:

update Mar. 8th: adjusted her a bit to address some of the critiques, thanks everybody! :heart:

Trixie's back! At 2212 tris she's a bit dense for what I was going for, but much improved on the last model (6566 tris). Her mouth can open and her eyes were supposed to be animatable, but Photoshop didn't want to import that correctly and I gave up dealing with it. :icontwilight8iplz:

I don't have a project or anything in mind for her, she was really just for practice. Now she can sit around on my hard drive forever and collect dust, I guess.

Modeled in Blender 2.49b, textured and rendered in Photoshop CS4. Cutie mark vector by *The-Smiling-Pony.

Do you have any other low poly ponies you've made?

It has a pretty steep learning curve, but once you get the hang of it it's REALLY easy to work with -- the main thing about it is that it's extremely unintuitive and most of the menus are hidden, so it's very, very hard to figure out on your own. If you want to learn it I recommend finding a basic modeling tutorial on YouTube or somewhere, and just following along with it as it goes. You pick up the basics pretty quick and if there's something you're not sure how to do, it's usually easily-findable on Google. c:

I have used 3d max in the past
but that was a while ago so it may take away as I might be going to relearn 3d again on a  course
which was 3 years ago they did play with blender but the tutors got bored and stopped teaching it.

Really nice and smooth for a low-poly! (though the mane's not really good... ooooh... that bane of modeler's life)

How about eyelids instead?

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by using eyelids instead? :?

Model the eyelids, skin it to some bones to pull it up and close it down easily . It's a daunting task, but it's one of the way

Oh! Thanks for explaining, but I set it up so that her eyes are actually floating elements (with the texture being swapped to animate them), although Photoshop didn't want to display the transparent material properly so they're directly on the model here. I think that works better for the 2D style I was going for. :icontrixieshrugplz:
