This is the first time I am ever making a character in 3D, previously I’ve only been painting characters. It’s nice to see that a lot comes for free when you know how to draw.
I’ve now learnt how to make:
Procedural eyes with shaders, facial hair with the grease pen, anime-esque hair with curves, skin shader which evolved from learning how to shade the eyes, how to sculpt a human head, how to retopologize for facial animations.
It’s a lot of fun, but I didn’t think it’d take this long. Now I’m having second thoughts about making more characters than just this one… we’ll see how ambitious I am in the end.
Thanks for reading!
