Modelling fishes with Wings3D

Wings3d + MegaPOV 1.2.1, 2006...

I started modelling some fishes last year, but did not finish any scene using them, so they are sort of abandoned... will see if I can think of any scene to make use of them.

Modelling was very easy starting from a cylinder, making some sections and scaling the loops, then extruding the eyes and fins. But the UV mapping was very difficult to get right, so I finally used a simple projection UV.

On the final test scenes, to add to the undersea effect, I added fog, media absorption, and many little bubbles scattered around. The reefs are just some overlapping heightfields.

WIPS, tests and other images:
