Hallowe'en Masks


6 of my students created models of their own faces, using TorQ’s tutorial:

They were then UV-mapped with a single image projection, then animated. A bit of cloth simulation thrown in for good measure.

They are very proud of what they managed to make. These are high school students who have never used 3D software before. They’ve been learning Blender after school, two days a week, since the beginning of September (about 5 weeks). I left in our boilerplate introduction and credits because that’s all made with Blender too.

That’s pretty cool.

Nice work.

The image of an actual human face, projected as a mask on another object … yeah, it’s technically straightforward to do, but as an artistic expression it catches you by surprise and engages you instantly. This is very well-done, and you and your students have ample reason to be proud!

Thanks for the kind comments!

The kids are having a lot of fun so far, and I hope I can continue to keep them interested. Hopefully at the end of the school year I’ll be able to post a video showing their work throughout the year. That’s the plan anyway…


very nice work. I started using blender when I was in high school as well. I just wish I wasn’t alone in my endevor. Keep it up!
