Mimic Chest

This is a quick little prop I've been working on for the past couple of days.  Things are wrapping up with Pirates Vs Pirates so the demand for new art went down a bit - it's been more of tweaking of models/textures that are already in place.

Whenever I play games I always open every treasure chest I see, so mimics have a special place in my heart because they always get me.  I wanted to work on a prop so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to do so.

Body Texture
Tongue Texture

For this prop I ended up trying out Marmoset and it's incredible how easy it is to just plug things in and get it rolling quickly.  Here's a turnaround of the Mimic:
