Damn it’s been along time since I posted here at Elysiun.
(Almost a Year)
I have been so damn busy with school that I haven’t had much time. for anything else. But I have got some of my new 3d work to show how much I have grown. I felt it necessary to post my work because my roots are buried deep in the blender community and it’s where I got my start in 3d and All the people here who helped me and I am extremely grateful for all of your guys Crits and Ideas and help. You all know who you are.
Anyway with that out of the way I feel the need to give a little background on this model.
I am coming into my 3rd year at Digital Media Arts College.
I have been working on this model for just shy of 2 months. It’s for a friend of mine’s Thesis project to get his BFA in Computer Animation. The Thesis is based on high end rigging using Maya and Syflex. If you don’t know what Syflex is it’s a cloth plug-in that was used in the matrix as well as in Final Fantasy Advent Children. Basically the rigging is going to be using underlying geometry (muscle) that deforms the Skin of the model to get more Realistic deformations in the skin. A lot of Mayor Studios use techniques like this for Rigging. This gets rid of Blend Shapes and Influence objects in Maya. I have completed one of the models required for my Friend to Graduate. I have to complete the other model which is a Horse for the Warrior to ride on. I will be starting that model in a Couple of Days.
The model has 3 layers to it There is the Muscle Geometry that with be driving the skin, then you have the actual skin Geometry, and Finally all the goodies like Armor and Katanas and a chain mace.
There are no Textures on this Model only Simple shaders with a diffuse map and a Reflectivity map that are simple procedural textures that are in Maya.
I know this is a Blender Community but as stated above this is where I started.
I hope that you all enjoy this and feel completely free to Crit it until you are blue in the face.
Oh you can’t direct link to my crap web host so you are going to have to copy the link and paste it into a new browser. I am in the Process of shopping for a new host. So please bear with the inconvence. I am really sorry stupid free web hosting
