The character modeling process is quite familiar to me, as it has been my area of expertise in the past few trimesters as well. Furthermore, I have had experience in quadruped characters, such as for my final project during which I modeled the puppy. I was initially planning to only model the cat character, however further production issues led me to take on the chameleon character modeling as well. While modeling the chameleon character, there were a few changes in the body shape made to make the design more appealing. The head and face also took a couple of stages until the desired look was achieved.
The cat model did not undergo as many design changes, although the anatomy took a bit of time to get right. Mainly the shoulder blades and body shaping were focused on. The topology of the face took a bit of extra time, as well as modelling the separate pieces such as teeth, gums and tongue.
Below are the finalized models of both characters.
