Belle Wip! One week of relearning Anim8or
« on: June 19, 2020, 05:39:08 pm »

Hello, I have returned to Anim8or! I have been working on a head all week (Yes, yes I am slow) and wanted a little feed back from other 3D creators.
Does the face look OK? Are they eyes alright?

I have to take time to learn to model. This is far better than anything I could do! Nice work, ttsnim.

Thank you so much!
I will be working on expressions through morph-targets, and her hair, this week.

They are technically the same face, Trev. One was the very first subdivision I did. I worked it for a couple of days trying hard to understand facial anatomy after that horror. 
Unfortunately I have discovered the loops are all wrong for expressions and will have to start from scratch!
Next head should be even better.

Redoing the head because it wasn't constructed right for proper emotions or mouth movements. This is just two days of work as opposed to a week. I think I am learning.

 Congratulatons. A really good move, taking the time now, to construct the topology in line with decent facial expression.
 Not like me, wishing i'd done the same, a long time ago.
 One of my characters especially, i just hate using the 'O' phoneme, coz it looks so bad. Doesn't matter how much i try to improve the morph, there just isn't the right points in the right places, to get it looking decent.
 You're inspiring me to start another character.
 Good stuff,  ttsnim, looking good.

Thank you! ^_^ My biggest joy is giving characters good expressions.

One of the things I bought many years ago, and has helped me tremendously, is Stop Staring: Facial Modeling and Animation Done Right. There are a few newer versions of the book and I want them all. I highly recommend one of the copies if you don't already have one.

Never the less, I'm still a baby in all this 3D stuff. I love the Tutorials you have posted and keep them in mind when I work on things.

 Yes, thanks ttsnim

 I found 2 copies on ebay, and bought one

edit: $12nzd. for a second hand copy in good condition. Cheap!
 They did have another one which was an updated version, about $19usd.

Hi ttsnim,
Good work on your model. I think you will find that many articles and tutorials on modelling and animating which were created for a different 3D software are easily adapted to Anim8or. A good example of that is the many instructions on scene lighting. You can find some excellent 'general 3D' forums with a variety of tutorial subjects online.
Best regards,
Bob G.
