Wherein We Rebuild the Pose Library
This time, I decided to apply a bit of methodology.
First, I pose her as spread out in every way as possible. Spread limbs, fingers, toes.
Then, I pose her as scrunched up and small as possible. Fists. Knees into chest.
I try to create a series of poses that will be good starting points for other poses
I try to create a series of poses that will be good starting points for other poses. I don’t know how successful I am. Time will tell.
Missing Rig Bits
The Zombie Pose is cute. Surely.
I want the tendons on the back of her hand to stand out
But I want the tendons on the back of her hand to stand out. Her toes similarly lack tendons when her toes are curled up/back.
I haven’t figured out how to solve this yet.
Clues? Write me! I’m Philo Vivero on gmail. It should be pretty obvious how to turn that into a workable email.
On top of that, I still have no idea how to rig hair. I have an extra constraint: I want to be able to re-parent geometry to the rig with automatic weights all the time. This makes it difficult to include the hair rig inside her body rig.
I will explore things like “child of” constraint, and hopefully this provides a solution. In any case, hair is proving to be a big challenge. I will probably give her a tied-up hair-doesn’t-move hairdo again soon.
Just a random selection.
