I struggled initially, but I’ve managed to get a lot done. I added his eye, modelled his shoulder and hair. I did the hair using spheres and stretching them, using soft select to model it like hair. I just need to work on the hands and the clothes, then I can duplicate him over.
I was struggling with the face, so I scrapped what I had, spoke to my tutor (Tim) and started to plan out the face using the curve tool in the side view and extruding using the surfaces- extrude option and used the box option. (Distance, Quads, Polygons)
I started to model his face and set up the basics
I created a rig for the eyes and jaw.
I looked at some royalty free music and have planned out the music in the background, that will be hear under the sound effects of the sea. I plan to mix may sounds together.
This is my rough storyboard. I want to get feedback first before I neaten it and add colour with notes.
I did the same with my other character, I created a mannequin to explore clothing options and hair. I liked some of the unique ones that I saw during my research. I came up with a final idea for my character, using a different head shape and eyes for them. I want to distinguish the two characters.
