High Detailed Photorealistic Polar Bear; FULLY RIGGED AND ANIMATED, UVunwrapped and smoothable, made with Maya. Shave and a haircut for hair.
This model has a clean geometry based on loops and ‘only’ quads. It is FULLY RIGGED AND ANIMATED and comes with Maya settings for Arnold renderer.
(Ready to render exactly as you see above – hit the ‘3’ button for the geometry approximation preview and render)
– eyes, corneas, gum, teeth and tongue are modeled separately.
–7 High resolution textures:

PolarBearRIGMaya2017Shave96v11.ma – default RIG (maya 2018 ascii)
hairCurvesExportedMaya2018.ma – hair curves (nurbs) converted from shave and a haircut hair primitives.hairCurvesExportedMaya2017.ma – hair curves (nurbs) converted from shave and a haircut hair primitives.
hairCurvesExported.fbx – hair curves (nurbs) converted from shave and a haircut hair primitives.
Mesh resolutions- Polycount (quads):
main Polar bear mesh: 8464
background plane: 100
SHAVE AND A HAIRCUT NOTE:
You would need Shave and A Haircut for Maya 2018 (*/**/***) in order to render the hair, otherwise you would be able to render only the main mesh.
For an even better render quality you can increase the hair primitives count up to your machine memory limit (The actual renders have been made on a machine based on a single I7 cpu with 16 gigs of ram – about 5 minutes for a 1480×800 frame)
–5 different hair systems for a total of about 800k hairs.
Included: Exported hair curves created by hair primitives (FBX and Maya 2018 ascii) so you can use them as guides if you’ re using a different Fur/Hair plugin.
* The actual files have been created with Shave and a haircut 9.6
** Please always use an updated – Shave and a haircut/ Shave for Arnold extension/ Arnold renderer – releases to avoid rendering issues.
***you would need shave 9.6 for Maya 2018 in order to render the fur in the Maya 2018 version.
The actual rendering settings are for a medium quality output (preview images shown above). To get better quality images you can increase the Arnold settings up to your machine limit.
RIG & ANIMATION NOTES:
This model is rigged using simple ikHandles and NURBS primitive control objects to help achieve realistic animations of the limbs, joints, and muscles.
The rig in scalable.
Control objects can be easily manipulated through the transform tools to achieve desired animations.
4 fully editable animation sets have been included in maya 2017 files (referenced to the main rig) to make them easier to use and edit:

-runRef (running) (20 frames – loopable) – download animation preview here
-standingRef (standing up) (200 frames) – download animation preview here
-attitudeRef (walikng and roaring) (114 frames – loopable) – download animation preview here
