Rodney Posted July 8, 2012 Share Posted July 8, 2012 Sorry I've been off of the radar of late. A few weeks ago I decided to light myself aflame with gasoline. Note: I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS. The burns are not nearly as painful as the process of treating the burns. I have a new found respect for those burn center doctors/nurses/assistants and my sympathy for burn victims is tremendous. I am now well on the way to recovery... and the good news (for me)... I've found time to sketch with splines again and have been really enjoying that. I need to find my mouse because splining with a finger on a laptop is a royal pain. Tuckertown is a project (of sorts) meant to be a drawn comic strip set in the late 1800s. The characters seemed to translate fairly well into CG so I may press further with modeling them. If nothing else it'd be good to build sets, props and characters for reference. The (partial) models here are proof of concepts to see how difficult it will be to actually model them with the goal of proper articulation. Not all of the characters are fully designed yet so I've been splining and experimenting all along the way. Characters attempted thus far: -Fudley -Eda -Daisy Lou -Betty Lou -Cindy Lou Main Characters to go: -P.T. Boombottom -Louis -the animals And of course, the complete set/stage for Tuckertown! Will I continue to explore Tuckertown... I dunno. Probably. But I've been sidetracked modeling robots and Kirby-krackle lately. One of the real challenges is to deal with tall and short characters within the same shot/camera viewing area. I may have to rethink that aspect. Having all characters look like they belong to the same universe is an important consideration as well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
