Human characters

im new to blender, and have teamed up with a script writer to do animations. im good at buildings and such, but suck when it comes to humans. if possible could someone help us out with human models? preferably civilian pilots and casually dressed people.

have you considered using MakeHuman to create your characters?

yeah ive tried make human. i do like it, but how do you get realistic looking hair that can be animated?

How animated do you want it to be?

You could use particles and curve guides and animate the guides, using either hooks or armatures or even soft body.

I think some Blender tests made back before 2.40 showed softbodies used to animate hair. As for curve guides, they would be hard to animate if you have a lot but maybe if there was python access you could create procedural animation for the curves.
