Let's Make a character with this software!
« on: February 02, 2024, 04:24:09 am »

I haven't modeled a character in years, but now that I'm getting back into 3d modeling I figured, why not? I decided to try an anime style "2d" look. I've been playing the Megaman EXE games lately and just decided to make Roll. I found that the rig was a lot more challenging than I first thought. But with some patience, I worked out some decent IK controls for the model. Even using it for facial expressions. While it's not a perfect rig, I can definitely reuse and improve upon it thanks to the export rig option in figure mode. This was a huge learning experience for me (rig-wise as well as learning IK controls).

Let me know what you think!

Also made this guy. It's one of the many enemy designs I've had for a while. (Lowpoly of course)
And a vid of me making it.

So I don't want to spam the forum with many topics, so I hope Steve won't mind if I continue this thread with my other works for this topic (anim8or is just darn fun!). Here is the entire unown alphabet modeled in anim8or. And there's a special little animation at the end too!
