Shouldn’t the “ronin|shinobi” be vice versa?
Actually yeah, funny story this. I actually had the name Ronin|Shinobi picked out. When I did the sketch I forgot to make it in that order. Now its kind of a lucky coincidence, I think coz, if i remember the compass correctly, east is to the right, the sun rises in the east…and Japan being the land of the rising sun an’ all…well you get the idea
I love your concept sketch, very nice work. I too am looking forward to the .blend versions, and hopefully some wicked animations to go with the stills of what you develop.
Cool scketch! Yes, let’s see how it comes to Blender!
that is a very good concept scetch and i hope the blender version comes out as good if not better.
will you go for a seriouse look or a cartoony look to it?
Thanx fellas Glad its well liked
As of the moment Im still refining anime-like facial modelling technique. Im not going for that “super-deformed” anime look (with them huge eyes and tiny mouth…kinda overdone these days, what with pokemon and other saturday toons). Im trying to get something like the Tekken 3 look, not too toony, but also keeping in mind that its an animation, no super-realism thing goin’ on.
Obviously not as detailed as tekken…my skills mainly lie in animation.
Im getting some progress with the shinobi model, but polycount remains too high and pretty messy. :-?
Im planning on making this series (if at all it sees the light of day) to be web-based episode releases. I know flash format is used a lot for web-based episodes, just asking for opinions on wether its good for this sorta thing?
what do you guys think about using the Flash SDK with the blender source code?
