Girl Rig


It's been ages since I have updated this blog and I have lots to put up so I thought I'd make a start........

Above is the rig finished with all it's controlers and below is just a render of what the girl looks like in her bind pose (with the exception of her little smile).

New Music....

After looking for a sound track online and failing miserably I decided to ask my lovely friend Natalie Jones to compose a track for the short and she's done a brilliant job I think. Thanks Nat :D I have stand in sound effects still but when I get round to recording them myself that will be changed. I have just roughly edited it to the pre viz so I know how the music flows with the shots.

Final Models


I've tried to keep them looking as similar as possible but changing a few things (so they don't look so much like brother and sister). So his nose is a lot bigger now and the bridge is thicker, his brow looks more masculine now too. He does look kind of surprised in his rest position but I think I'm happy to move on now. Hopefully when the blends are finalised it will look better. 
 
She's also slightly taller. I want her to seem pretty governing for most of the short with the main focus being her ballsy attitude, so I think it will help a bit. It supports the whole girls growing faster than boys thing too. Also the size difference will help strengthen the ending when there's a difference in tone and she is sitting. He is then in control of the situation and is standing, maybe giving the impression of superiority.

Character Model changes...




 

I decided that the boy looked too similar to the girl and some people had said they thought that they might be brother and sister. I do not want the audience to get that impression, things could get weird. So I made some more minor changes. I made his eyes smaller, changed the texture up a bit and changed the shape of his nose, jaw and chin.
