Spore editor to make norn?

I just got a demo for spore, and created an animal as close to a norn as possible.
you can put your animal on various backgrounds and pose it, and i was wondering, if i took all the needed shots from all angles and sizes, would it be possible to turn it into a breed?
if it is, would someone be willing to do this?
if not, what's the best way to learn?

Can you change its facial expression using the Spore editor? It could be possible to do so... Breeds are one of the most time-consuming addons to do, so I doubt you'll find anyone willing to take it on for you. You could try asking at the Creatures Breed Development Team for advice.

You create your creature, and can move around it, so you can get all the needed angles and sides, then testing it you can get it to do actions, and the actions include emotions, so it'd be possible, you'd just have to be very good at timing printscreens XD You can put the creatures on a black background too, so it'd not be hard to rip them.
If creating creatures is difficult, what about critters? How hard would that be?

Someone on the Gameware Forums made a Hebe Norn model. It's not particularly accurate, but given the game's limitations, I think it's fairly close.

It's hard to say without the demo right in front of me (holding out for Tuesday), but based on what I've seen, and what I've heard from other players, one of the creator's biggest problems is that the limbs tend to look very "blobby," which I think might impact the finer details of a given creature. Also, none of the creatures I've seen so far seem to have proper hair or fur (I mean, they have some, but it's not much). :\


You have to be honest with yourself when you are writing. If that leads to somewhere unexpected then perhaps you really needed to go there.

i had that problem with the limbs, when i was trying to make norns, then found out about making the liimb joints and hands thinner, it works pretty well, the results aren't really too different from a norn's limbs.
yeah, fur is a problem. maybe with the full game we'll get fur, as of yet there's nothing we can do about that though...

Well, you know, I'd be willing to make a breed from the Spore game (maybe just wait for the full version?), as long as it is okay with the Spore creators and all. I've made a few models of Norns, so here they are:
Base
Emerald
Rocky Norn
Water Norn
