Posting once again,
I decided against using the face I previously had for my "Stop Staring" face. Instead, I want to include more character than that face allowed since it was meant to be generic. So I'm going to be creating the "Pre-Animator". He isn't any kind of zombie, but he is a mad scientist, the maddest to be exact. For now he is just going to be a floating head, once I learn some new techniques I may do a body, but not quite yet. I'm going to focus on making as robust of a face as I can with as many features and personality as I can fit in it.
I'm hoping that once I finish this head I will be able to do some animation exercises with it so it can be used to animation practice as well as rigging practice.
It will go down in a few phases:
Phase One = Concept/Visual Development
Phase Two = Modeling Character and Blendshapes
Phase Three = Setting up Doo-Dads, Joints, and Blendshapes
Phase Four = Interfacing
Phase Five = Animating and Stuff!!!
Here's the beginning of the first phase!
Leave some feedback here on this blog to help me make this guy awesome n' stuff. I'll be sure to post whenever I make progress on this, which I "hope" will be fairly often.
