“Farah” the Great White Shark — Made exclusively for C4Depot by Jeff Cavenaugh of Farallon Arts
This Great White Shark model is a fully rigged, 3D, great white model made for C4Depot by Jeff Cavenaugh of Farallon Arts. It comes with a swim cycle, articulated jaw and gills, plus an expertly UV mapped remora. Fara started her life as a workflow experiment in C4D as a low poly model, sculpted and UV mapped in another application, and back to C4D for rigging and animating.
She is modeled in anatomical correctness from her nose to tail and includes fully modeled nostrils, teeth, spiracles (ears), gills, and reproductive parts.
Her mouth can be moved open or closed and all fins are articulated with or without gravity applied for a fully realistic swim action.
Rig controls are not included because even though more convenient, we find that animators often like to set up their own proprietary control systems that best suit their projects.
The model includes an 8k diffuse texture and normal maps as well as a reflectivity map to help her glisten in all the right places. For out of water shots the map can easily be removed or attenuated for wet or dry skin effects.
The topology is clean with few triangles and this model will work well with realtime applications as well as traditional animation for cinema and compositing.
Both beauty and accuracy were considered greatly so this model should please marine biologists and film producers alike.
