I like him! I know what you mean about being scared to use armatures… The armature system is rather difficult to use well. I wish someone would write a really good tutorial on modeling for animation and how to get the best deformation…
Oh i almost forgot to give my 2 cents about armatures. I’ve been doing that a lot lately, rigginf characters and stuff, and I can say, that in the end the basics are not at all so difficult as they seem.
Fisrt thing to do, is that you go and fetch the Blender manual 2.0 (or what ever it is at the moment) and chek out the armature section. After that is just curinsg and sweating.
Now I want to see it animated
The secret with rigging and animating by armature : just be patient %|
I took a whole afternoon to rigg my woman and there are imperfections in some movements it’s a long job and i’m not very patient too…
so you have to be determinated [!]
Your job is great and very funny, yeah ! So you very have to animate it
He looks good modeled enough for a good rigging !
So that’s all, keep blending up !
And when it will be finished, show us your great animation with this character !
Actually the elbow, or rather the upper arm seems a bit strange, it looks as if the biceps was pointing upward instead to the direction of the arm, not sure though, I just feel like it. But I couldn’t do any useful rigging yet with blender, so…
