Chinchillas are some of the most pleasurable rodents on the eyes. They have an attractive furriness and friendly humility to them.

As an asset, this chinchilla model was made as part of another project currently in the works (I also made sure I didn't forget whiskers this time!). After working in this "post-lowpoly", origami style you begin to see areas where you can break up the form more than before. Every corner, layer, or feature, will have its own formal language. I felt this was one of my best attempts.

From the front it looks like it has a coat, or cape, but the model wasn't designed to be seen from the front but from the sides. The "coat" is really just a layer of "fat."

In terms of color direction, I'm beginning to think the dithering looks much better when there is stronger contrast between the light and dark tones. The Warthog portrait is rather "dark" and I really liked it since it also gives off an interesting realism to them. For this rendition the contrasts are similar to the Warthog portrait piece as it is easier to direct the eye.

As mentioned, this piece uses a custom dithering shader and it is best seen at its actual size of 9000 x 9000 pixels (print size: 30" x 30"). For those who are not familiar, "dithering" is a technique where the blending of colors is simulated through a rigid pattern at the smallest scale. With limited colors the effect makes it appear as if there are more
