Ok so I’ve been using Blender for about 2 weeks (hardcore use that is). I’ve known about Blender for about a year. The only other thing I’ve done before this was the gingerbread man tut.
Anyway I still need to do the feet, tweek the fingers, and add hip plates as well as close up the space near the hip some more. Also need to texture everything. Plus I have the almighty head to do. That is going to take forever.
Anyway the whole purpose of my projects is to rig them and then animate them for the purposes of using them again as sprites in a game. This way is much easier in the long run as I only have to work on the model then I can relatively easily position it however I want. A lot faster, maintains porportions much better, and is not so time consuming or prone to mistakes.
Anyway enough blabbling, I know there are a ton of mistakes in it, so hit me with em. I figure this is the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship between me and Blender.
