An ultra low polygon model of the mythical minotaur. An easy to use an versatile model with a removeable weapon.
In Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a creature that was part man and part bull. It dwelt at the center of the Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like construction built for King Minos of Crete and designed by the architect Daedalus to hold the Minotaur. He and his son Icarus were ordered to build it. The historical site of Knossos is usually identified as the site of the labyrinth. The Minotaur was eventually killed by Theseus. "Minotaur" is Greek for "Bull of Minos". The bull was known in Crete as Asterion, a name shared with Minos`s foster father.
This is a lightweight model made especially for those scenes where you need an entire army, and where a high polygon figure just won`t do. The model is fully rigged and textured and accepts most standard Poser poses and animation files. Despite the incredibly low polygon count still poses and animates realistically. If you don`t have hours to wait and you need 50 characters in your scene, then this is the figure for you.
Two versions of the figure. One plain (2300 polygons), and one with the axe already loaded and parented to the figure (2400 polygons).
By comparison, this figure has about 1/30th the polygons of Mike 3 (Minotaur: 2400 polygons, Mike 3: 74,721 polygons).
Fully rigged with standard Poser naming conventions, and accepts standard Poser poses with slight tweaking required in some cases, especially on the arms.
Limits have been set, and IK chains are set up.
Hand grasp and spread functions work and accepts standard Poser hand pose files.
Fully UV mapped and textured, and using diffuse and bump maps. Texture maps are small, and load and render very fast.
Included are a set of standard still poses: battle charge, defiance, pointing, and standing.
Included is a basic animation files especially made for the minotaur: fast walk.
Props include an axe.
Low polygon count results in faster render times.
Add 30 or 40 or 50 figures to the scene without overloading Poser.
Create scenes with a crowd of minotaurs without waiting for hours or days for the scene to render.
All promotional pictures are rendered in Poser 7, Firefly engine, with Raytracing and displacement, and rendered in under 3 minutes on a Pentium III 768Mhz machine with only 256MB RAM. There is no postwork on any of the promotional pictures, and all the poses shown are included.
