I have to warn you, I’m really excited about this:
After spending a lot of time trying to find an affordable 3d stroyboard program, I came to realize that Blender has everything a storyboard artist really needs. I am working on a short movie at the moment that has a few very complicated shots. I would like to pre-compose them in blender to see where I should put the camera and actors in these scenes in order to make everything easy for post production.
For this, all I need is the blender characters! I need to have pre-made blender human character with working IK-rigging. Now this is the best part: Things do not really have to be perfect at all, as long as it looks good enough for me to show my producers. I would simply like to have low poly, semi realistic human figures that represent my characters in some recognizable way. I think you get the point!
I will pay 200$ for this package!! Here’s what I need:
1 x male, 80 years old
1 x male, 50 years old
1 x male, 20 years old
1 x male, 12 years old
1 x male, 5 years old
1 x female, 80 years old
1 x female, 50 years old
1 x female, 20 years old
1 x female, 12 years old
1 x female, 5 years old
I would like these models to have some sort of basic clothing on, so no nudity please If it’s easy, maybe you can make the clothes on a separate layer if I ever need to undress the models (doubt that but just in case)
Now I would like to remind you that these don’t necessarily have to be individually or very accurately created models! Just copy paste and change the important parts or something like that. I even suggest you simply create them in Makehuman or Poser and simply do the rigging in Blender. It’s the rigging/IK part that is important for me, as that is the part I don’t have enought time to learn right now.
The best part is yet to come!! Even though I pay for these models to be created for my project, I want them to be open source after that! So not only will you be making a favour for me, but the whole indy movie making crowd that is out there! This would be the first freely available open source 3d storyboard package and I’m pretty sure it will rock the boat for many indie pre-productions! Just imagine the possibilities of creating very complex scenes in a few minutes and even testing out the camera moves in real time! I’m so excited about this I jumping out of my pants!
So guys, last time it was 50 bucks for the hood shirt model (which was paid to an artist in here), now it’s 200$ for something that will really benefit many many indy (and professional) movie makers! It doesn’t have to be perfect in the beginning! Because it’s public for all, others can develope the models further once they are released! Come on guys, let’s to this! The only thing you need to know how to do decently is IK!
Tell me if you are interested by posting in this thread! If there is interest from many, I will look at your previous work to decide who might be best for the job. Also collaborations are possible (then you split the cash). The money will be paid via Paypal.
One more thing: The DEADLINE I’m sorry but I am the most anxious guy in the world about this, and my shoot day is getting closer. So this has to be finnished by next friday. That’s less than one week. BUT YOU CAN DO IT! I’t doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as it works. I don’t care about small deformations ect. as long as it doesn’t look too horrible
Sorry about the rant, I’m just really really excited! Let me know if YOU are interested!
