I created a high poly sculpt of the Dicta-bird based off many HD photos from Slydog in ZBrush. Big shout out to slydog for providing the pics from his Flintstones Table, he's a big reason it turned out so nice! I then create a low poly version of the mesh based off the high poly version. In 3dsmax I use projection mapping to 'bake' maps from the high poly version onto the low poly. So the texture map and normals bump map are generated off a high poly sculpt, giving the LP version the illusion of high detail/high resolution.

    It blows my mind, the things you guys can do. I fall to a puddle on the ground just looking at the software.
    Thank you all.

    wow, this really came out great. Your are a master of this trade Dark. I will give you anything you need from my collection (about 25 pins now).
    Like I asked in a PM, I really want to try and tackle Transporter the Rescue as it is so rare and the VP9 version looks so bad. I just picked it up the other day and hopefully will sell shortly as I have no more room for any more pins (I have a problem :)

      It looks so good. Never thought a prehistoric chicken (Dictabird) would look so good on a pinball table! Your talent really shines!! Thanks so much for sharing. Video is amazing.

    Fantastic! The time and effort you guys put in to make these tables. Have been a member of this fantastic community since 2010, I have always said to my self I want to contribute as well. But whit these standards and no skills Il get back to tell people how to rotate a table in the newbie section.
    Cant wait to see what you doo with that looong neck brachiosaurus.

    Fantastic Dark!
