I have had a rough month this month hustling without much success, and today I sat down and started up my Trinny character rigging again. I managed to make my UE compatible eye finally. It deforms and looks around and keeps scale preservation all without a problem - with squash and stretch if I need it - to a degree. It's nice to be good at something again.

Ok! He's poseable finally. Just need to iron out some kinks on his skin, face, and make teeth, eyebrows and tongue.

Oh.. and start the bug squashing of the interpobility with Unreal Engine for realtime fur..

I started facial tests today, and got his eyebrows and teeth sorted. I've been going through each expression on his character sheet to try make the expressions. If they work, then I'm good.
Only thing left to do is the tongue and also.... figure out the expression limits. I am not sure I should limit the controls, or just leave it to the animator till he breaks it. I also have to make the animation controls a little more user friendly and with a good hide/show system.
I'm a little nervous, I haven't got the shadow rig working just yet and the idea is that it should all export to UE - but up till this stage I haven't tested it.

I can't wait for Eevee with atleast a years maturity....

I need a holiday. It's weird I feel more exhausted not having enough paying work to get out of debt and pay bills than when I'm overworked with many contracts doing work like this.

Visited the site. How does it work? Did you make this site?

Yeah, been thinking about sales. I need immediate work first, but yes, sales would be a great investment.

He's alive!

Still have a lot of bugs to fix.. like... amputate one arm that broke, mirror it again - fix finger geometry - fix eye socket and controls - fix deflating eye loop - and more.

Hi ! Nope! Im pretty much in the artstation forums now and some time ago stumbled across articles from people in the industry including the makers of Star wars and Blade runner who used it in the film! Its an emerging market! Kitbashing as such isnt new..it comes from plastic kit modeling but its a good idea! Im not related to that site at all just on the fence watching! They have a free test set I think parts of victorian and there is a contest going on until 2019 so the have a sampler of futuristic out now too!!!
They are looking for modelers! This is a growing site there!
