Hey Animation Master..,

 

I've been modelling my best friend, uncle Donald.

Great to do, there's only that little bit that makes it different from the original.

Think that will always be, at least a nice try.

 

:P

I was so impressed by Qu@ckAttack, I couldn't let him go.

His mouth is one of the hardest parts, still have the feeling it could be smaller.

I retraced it with a tga file, but this makes it a little changed.

 

 

I never have found out why he always looks double, but not from the side.

 

:P

Double? which part?

Maybe he means 'double jointed'?

I ment, how do you call it .., squint?

Because he's a comic figure he has that strange glare.

From the side it hardly matters.

Now I know what bothered me about the beak. You've got a peak along the top that isn't in the drawing.

Yeah.., true. I made his mouth from the feet.

And because of the flat attitude I made them twittling.

Hard to make it lipposing, I think there are too many squads.

 

Now I'm examing I see the width of his eyes are too large and I can't use his eyebrows.

Maybe I should start with less vertices to assure it won't become unnecessary complicated.

 

I need a result to improve myself.

Translating a 2D character to 3D is challenging, but I love seeing the results.

 

One thing I do when I start one is look for model sheets that will have good turnarounds, so that you get a good idea of what the character is supposed to look like at different angles. Sometimes these don't match up very well, but in most cases, the well-designed characters do.

 

I found this sheet that gives some good angles on Donald:

Hey thanks Largento!

 

I used the VectorDonaldDick file to model it.

Soon I reached the moment it became an odd shape of a showoff.

 

This will help a lot!

 

:P
