So this is my first WIP… Here we go.
I’m doing an animation for my high school culminating project. And while I’m not yet ready to begin sharing my progress on what the animation will be about… I am ready to show you my progress on the main character.
I designed this silly orange thing to be as easy to animate as I could make it. His topology is also extremely simple. I did this for two reasons, the setting for the animation will be fairly simplistic in nature (like this character), and frankly my animating and modeling skills aren’t exactly pixar quality
Here’s the subsurfed wire-frame.
The above picture isn’t actually the current state of the character. I’ve since cleaned him up a little and added on to him. But It gives you a good idea of the model.
Anyways, here’s a long list of entertaining pictures. I’m stress testing my model, seeing how well he does under different emotions and positions. As most of you will see, his arm has a tendency to deform strangely. So any advice on how to fix that is most welcome. Also, if you see anything that could be improved about the model, that would be great.
Stay tuned for more!!!
