Do a furball. I know that there's a tutorial on how to do hair with anim8or and teranim8or somwhere and the example image is a furball.
If you would add feet and eyes that would be pretty cute. I think.

There is a technique how to make fur, (It was in one of the DOTAN8 magazines). Only problem is I lost it, I think you can download the magazine on Anim8or.org (they are free). I saw the fur picture and it looked ace! So realistic! Though I think the render took a long time

Cant find it,I dont think fur would be the best thing for this anyway.What do you think would be a good color.

I don't know. But how about some textures off the net. Textures can make things look realistic

Heres what i have so far...it scares me.

yeah, me too  :o

actually, most things that come out of eggs, aren't all that cute to start with.  lots of birds are just downright hideous when they've just hatched.  maybe you should concentrate on scariness instead?  perhaps do a baby velociraptor, a la Jurassic Park, or something...

What do you think would be a good color.

either a reddish-pink (lots of hatchlings are that colour, they have no pigment yet, so the reddishness is actually caused by the blood vessels under the skin), or some sort of grey / brown.  if you're aiming for realism, that is.  otherwise, make it kingfisher blue, with green specular or something!  ;D

Actaully I agree with thecolclough, forget textures for the moment. What the thecolclough said is really realistic and gives the sense of a new cute but scary creature. try that and give us a render. I bet it will look good

Yeah i see your point,ill get started on that.ill make the eyes look more realistic by puttin a transparent lens with a subtle env map.and make it scarier,but cuter.

Heres a better eye color,and that newborn flesh color.plus a bumpmap for skin.Should i get started on the figure or does the head need more adjustments?

depends what it's going to be?  the mouth probably wants a bit of work (make it less square, and a bit darker inside), and it could use some eyelids.  and depending on species, it may or may not want some ears.  if it's supposed to be something scary, then slant the eyelids down in the middle to make it look more ferocious, and maybe add a couple of little baby fangs.  :o  as a general rule, things like eyes and ears, especially eyes, are proportionally larger in baby creatures than they are in the adults of the same species.

personally, i'd shift the colour a bit more towards pinky-red rather than orangey-red, but thats just a taste difference, i think.

and just as a little side issue, almost_cool, it makes your writing clearer if you leave spaces between your sentences.rather than doing this :)

sorry to reel off so many things at once - hope you don't feel too swamped!  :P

no prob 8), have it done in a few seconds. It shouldnt be ferocious I just want it to be scary and have room for it to be cute. (If I dont than the egg being golden would be kinda pointless.)
