Product Information

Dogs are dogs, and cats are cats, but the Big Cat Dog can serve both your needs from one mesh.

Using the popular Dog 8 figure at Daz, you can now also have a variety of Big Cats. Lions, Tigers, Cheetahs, Jaguars and even a Panther can all be found in this character package.

Also included are 3 different fur options for use with any level of detail you require in your scene. One uses simple displacement maps to simulate fur on the texture itself. Then there is also a Fur Geoshell, which gives another level of fur detail and is very render friendly. Then we also have a LAMH preset which works for 3Delight but can also be saved out as an object and used in Iray with the custom Material files included for Iray.
