The final post!

Since we were apparently required to, both myself and Emma each have our own individual blog now, so I felt now would be the perfect time to put this poor thing to rest.

Modeling in Mudbox

Here's some pictures to show our progression with Minnie in 3D. I started out in Maya, but after downloading the trial version of Mudbox, I have since worked completely in Mudbox.

I really like how fluidly you can create a 3D mass in the program. I feel a lot happier about modeling now. Yay!

Tom helped me alot with doing this, so a big thank you to him for the assistance

Minnie's Reference Sheet

Voila! My final character sheet! I have loads of sketches that I did to get to this point, including a colour study, but I will be uploading those very soon. Trust me!

I am very happy with Wilhemina's look. She looks grouchy, but looks as if she can be a bit of a softy aswell. The colours are all grey-based and really show her age. I gave her hat the brightest colours, to show its importance to her.

Isnt she beauuuuuuutiful?!?! haha!

An update!

Wow, finally, an update! As I’m sitting here, listening to music, working on my final model, I felt, why not make a new blog post?

Since I have not yet done so, here are a few of the initial sketches I had created to design Wee Eck. The design has actually come quite a way, and I hope the final model will be represent what I wished to achieve.

I’ll post up what I’ve created in the next few days, and I aim to get the character fully rigged by the end of the week. I'm hoping to start the animation this weekend.
