Title: Freddy!
Post by: Arik_the_Red on December 27, 2017, 03:39:21 am
Ooooh I just found out about the anim8or v1.0 release! 

Yes, I've been hiding under a rock... Well, I decided am going to introduce my granddaughter to anim8or and as a part of that... making her current "obsession" character...

Freddy Fazbear!

Pizza, anyone!?!?!

Hi, Arik_the_Red. Good to hear from you. There's lots of new things in Anim8or, hope you find them useful. And nice teddy bear.

Thanks, Steve!  Having problems creating edges, so I had to revert to v0.98 for the moment.  Not sure but what is up with that - a bug report I'll get to the v1.00 forum area. 

The pic in my first message is not my work, but rather from the "Five Nights at Freddy's" images online, and my goal to re-create.

Meanwhile,  first development shots... Basic mesh 4 panel shot, and "smoothed" render test.


...and, for those not familiar, Freddy here is a rather freaky character in a very popular game called "Five Nights at Freddy's"... an animatronic character in an abandoned pizza parlor in the spirit of Chuck E. Cheese.

Good ol' FNAF... giving me give or take 5 years of frights and plenty of humorous-yet-spooky story action.

Looking forward to following your process AtR!

Updates.... piecing head together as I mesh it up... Had to rebuild it because I try to keep two versions - a rough one for working, a smoothed one for visualizing final creation... and I accidentally saved the smoothed test over the base rough build file...

Really good job Arik! Looks like his jaw way in the back corner-area is a bit too narrow though - makes him look a bit like his face is missing definition back there. Just based on similarly-orientated reference materials like this image below from SCawthon.

If I may also say - that round look you had from the prvioues previews seemed to fit a bit better/look more polished than the boxier look in the latest render. That's just taste though.

Really cool! Carry on!!!

As per Davdud's comments, I wasn't exactly happy with that last version's muzzle and jaw either, so was already reworking.

I decided to start messing with sequence and scene... testing some animation attempts.  Note, the body is NOT complete, just a mockup... and no limbs created yet.  Just the head.  Also, have not textured the surfaces...

That said, here is a little test of Freddy "coming to life"...

Thanks, NoobJens007!  Great to see new (to me) folks around.  I've been out of touch for quite awhile, but at one time was quite the king of unfinished projects here, as the other oldsters will verify ;-)

Love your work Arik, great to see you back!  And I reckon you'd have a bit of a fight on your hands for the 'unfinished projects' crown :D

More Freddy... getting close to final form... FEET!  Now, needing the joint connectors... and texturing.
