Since nobody ever replied to my other thread, I decided to make a new one.

Here's an update I made the hair and the hat and added some textures . I made the face texture myself. I made the hat by making a curved line and lathe-ing(I don't know how to spell that) it in the Y direction. The rest of the body are just colour textures. I'm going to make the neck and the little pink bat on the hat.

nice1, got one thing: I think the head is a bit to round, it should be 'longer'... (or am I totally wrong?)
Title: Re: MySims (new thread)

Jehovahenker: OK I made the head a bit more square and added some more parts.

The only thing left for me to make is her backpack. If there is anything that I can improve on please let me know.

That looks like a decent start.  Do you want to keep the characters blocky?
The hat right now could go a bit further down on the head.  It doesn't seem as if it's actually tight on the head.  Instead it looks like it's about to fall off.
The ears could use a little work, they look like simple little bumps right now.  You seem to be doing pretty well on the texturing (though it's basic, it's still nice and precise.)

Yeah since they are blocky in the game. How do I improve the ears because I made them by extruding one face on each side of the head.
Title: Re: MySims (new thread)

You can start by giving the ears more vertices around.  Instead of a simple cubic structure you can give it more form, which will give you more control and make it look less like a little bump in the side of the head.  Then you can give it depth.  Nobody's ears are simply flaps of skin sticking out, they indent to catch sound, so you can inset the face then intrude.

How do I add more vertices And here's an update with the hat a bit more on her head.

Use the cut tool!
The hat looks much better by the way.

Title: Re: MySims (new thread)
Post by: Airedale11 on April 23, 2009, 05:12:20 pm
Yeah I already made a scene that Wendalyn flies around on her broom. (just her on her broom flying out of the camera screen. Very short scene)

OK the polls are closed now. The next character I'm making is Sir Vincent Skullfinder, after him Star and 3rd Cap'n Ginny. Travis, Roxie Road and Mel the Mummy will be in the next poll with three new characters.

That's up to steve to decide. I have seen awesome works made with anim8or which never ended up in the gallery.

Here's a start to Sir Vincent.
Title: Re: MySims (new thread)
Post by: Airedale11 on May 09, 2009, 04:13:58 pm
I'm having a little trouble rigging it. I tried using the weight brush like I did with Wendalyn but it comes out like gum in sequence mode.
Help me.

EDIT: and sorry I haven't been updating Vincent over there, I was too busy with school (projects, tests etc.)

Post by: lizeal93 on May 10, 2009, 11:37:00 pm
thats probably becouse it is a subdivision mesh.
Title: Re: MySims (new thread)
Post by: Airedale11 on May 11, 2009, 05:07:26 pm
Well Wendalyn was also a subdivision mesh.

Can you show your rig with the wireframe?
