Im afraid I need a little advice. I am new to blender and after looking around at various other softwares such as poser and Maya, this is the one for me (its FREE) lol lol. I have watched several video lessons from various sources to see if I can do what I want but seem to be a little bit at a loss. I did a 2D animation for my grandsons birthday and wanted to recreate the same character in blender which I think I might be able to manage. I was just wondering, before I start, what would be the correct way to go. my character is basically a cartoony avatar of myself wearing a baseball cap,glasses, hi vis jacket, shirt tie trousers shoes etc. Now my problem I have is before i start i was wondering if I need to model each clothing item seperately so i can put animation on these items. mainly removing the hat, glasses and wind blowing through the hi vis as i walk etc. I hope this gives you an idea of my needs.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am really excited at getting started on my new adventure and apologise for any pestering i may be doing in the future to get my project off the ground.
