I decided that it will be fun to try to model an anthropomorphic rabbit from the sketches and tried to model a living character from scratch for the first time at age 16 (turned 17 recently, though that is irrelevant).
Here is how it went-
As you can see, certain parts are good and certain parts are terrible. I've never modeled anything from scratch or unfolded an UV before so the results are hellish.
I might consider re-making the model in summers but I might as well not be able to do it due to some problems in life.
So... Is any fine Gentleman willing to try and rig the model for Lugaru if I upload it somewhere on the internet?
IIT: rigging request and asking general opinions on the model from the pics.
UPDATE 1: I redid the UV Map after a few tutorials-
UPDATE 2: I made a texture map
As of 14 January 2014,-
- The model has several 5 sided polygons. Most , if not all can be dealt with by welding the vertices in the model AND the UV map.
- The UV map will need some work on Hands, tongue and mouth, possibly other parts
- Tongue and mouth might be removed and the mouth will need to be closed
- The vertices of the eye socket might need to be welded to make the model more compatible with Lugaru
- The ears might need a little tweaking
- The whole model will need to be readjusted to be riggable.
- The texture map will need to be edited for other skins and stuff
Update 3:: I think I'll stop working on the model until March 2014.
Here is the model for anybody willing to pick up where I left-
Anybody is free to use and edit/modify the textures or the model in any manner as long as you don't sue me for my own work.
It would be awesome if somebody picked up and finished where I left or Johannes completes his mod.
]UPDATE 4: I decimated the model to 1800, 1500 ,1200 and 999 triangles (perfect triangles, no N-sided stuff) to lessen the burdens of whoever rigs it. I am now abandoning this project.
Anybody is free to take the model and do whatever they wish to do with it, consider it a gift to the amazing Lugaru community (a somewhat crappy gift I admit).
It would still be awesome to have the model rigged to Lugaru.
