Hey the super-hero is not bad, however in my opinion too much body fat generally leads to auxiliary bones to correct deformations, (specially on shoulders) It might be a little frustrating for beginners…even though automatic adjusters ( transparent to the animator) can be implemented. If you could provide a better sketch and people agreed we could go for it. ( Still it reminds me Captain Blender, which I am not that fanatic to)
I get your point but that subject was left behind…now we are moving forward to a new MESH-RIG project that we expect to have the MAGIC to attract more people…ha ha You can keep using PANTIN if that makes you happy Waylow. Actually no one has said to take Pantin away, it is just other option, a renewal…moving ahead, change…if you were the big boss at the TOYOTA Company I can imagine the same models over and over for years…then? Your Company won’t succeed, people are innovators,they like new stuff…that makes you grow…don’t be afraid of moving away from THE COMFORT ZONE…SAID by BRIAN TRACY…not me ! ha ha
Six months? What are you talking about Waylow? Once we have decided what sketch to bring to 3D it will take me less than 4 days for mesh-rigging-texture and a quick animation demo…6 months no even in my dreams ha ha…may be a few more days for the community to look at the mesh and modify it for better. If Kiopa knows very well how to polish the mesh for Blender 2.5 then welcome to work as a team! We all need his skills !
Also a caveman would lead to caveman animations? What the heck was that in plain English Waylow? A caveman can jump, run, play with a ball, lift weights and do everything ! Just the actor can make something funnier by the fact that he is a caveman and it would give the spicy touch to the animation…more creativity.( that’s what you call magic somehow )…or Do you think because it is a caveman it has to fight with dinosaurs all the time? ha ha…You could make even a caveman go to MacDonalds ! In animation everything is funny possible…the restrictions are only in your mind Waylow.
Sorry but no time for me to provide sketches…we all should submit sketches and ideas so we can aim the potential towards something reliable, attractive, Magical and easy to animate from beginners to the most seasoned animators.
I have some ideas in mind, of what I’m trying to get. Not necessarily any of these ones particularly, but something with enough curve details to show that it is alive, and some personality.
