Hey everyone, have been only been learning Blender for about a month (alongside MakeHuman and Sculptris) and thought it would be nice to have somewhere to post my progress where I can get feedback as I still fully grasp these things. My intentions are to eventually use Blender to create digital maquettes and settings for 2D and still art projects I have in the makes. In the end I’d like to build the characters, props, wardrobe and setting, but Blender’s considerable learning curve will keep me very busy for a long time.
At the moment I’m focusing largely on fine tuning my character techniques to have a little fun while I still master modeling, sculpting, texturing, etc.
Please keep in mind that these are all WIPs, and even then only in the loosest of terms. This will literally be a sketchbook, nothing too promising or hurried.
For the time being, I’m starting and tinkering with the following MakeHuman .mhx, which has become a catch-all I’ve used to try out techniques on as I learn them:
(When I was still figuring out how to properly set up materials and textures in cycles)
(Got the eyelashes, eyes, and eyebrows working then realized that the teeth weren’t set up with nodes yet. Also, they are too perfect and too white for my purposes, will be changing them eventually)
(Changed iris color, first time editing the textures - I’ve a lot of experience painting digitally painting with Photoshop and was thrilled to finally get to an area that I felt familiar with!)
