WIP new topology and face rig

Facial animation tests
nevermore.swf
Another WIP of my new character template. Attention, of course the texture is not final yet, fur is missing, and a few things are still out of place. Oh, and yes, those are feathers on his head. This again is the caracter of my lovely mate Nightlord, who decided all of a sudden he wanted ravens feathers instead of a haircut. I liked the idea, i liked the challenge... so there ya go ;) This animation was made to showcase both topology and rig, and a bit of range of emotion rather than perfect animation curves or correspondence with the actual song. Its to give you a insight on how my new character is developing! That Song is by the awesome band ASP and called Nevermore, a reinterpretation of their song "Nie mehr" As always, every piece of advice is more than welcome!

You should really try making stuff for Second Life, dude X3

I have thought about it, but as of no i have no experience whatsoever in creating models for games. This particular model, even though it has a much lower poly count than my previous, still would not run in any game engine smoothly i am afraid. I try to focus on doing on animations, i think its fun :)

Only use low poly modelsWork in base the requeriments, if the graphic engine says are.... example 2000 polygons, then make a model using 2000 polys or less.  And, here is another secret but lately the new games leave behind it for hide it with the graphic engine: low poly models but with cool textures.

In reality, the usual furry models around on SL have similar polycount to your model. The unique problem is make a model for every blendshape , script it, etc.

Oh,  really?  Hehe I wouldn't know about that,  I never tried to build something for second life. Or any real time engine for that matter ^^    doing stuff for animation is, as of now,  enough for me and quite fun so I'm gonna stick with it for now :)

I started on blender for games (BGE), and later found interesting do some animation. You never know where you can finish with Blender hehehe. Enjoy and follow that good work you are doing.

whats the name of this song?
Kemonokun
4 years, 4 months ago
Its by the german band ASP, its called Nevermore, a reinterpretation of their song "nie mehr". Sadly, this song was only released on a album called "die verschollenen archive" with b-sides and stuff, and that one i guess is out of print. Well, theres always youtube:

Did you pay facerig 5 grand to get that on there?  That's what I heard it cost for them to incorporate a model for everyone. Great work btw!
Kemonokun
4 years, 4 months ago
Oohhh,  I just got that...  Sorry for the confusion,  this animation has nothing to do with the software facerig, this entirely hand animated and rendered in blender. The term rig actually refers to any setup in CG software to make something animateable, in this case my characters face...

Sorry, actually this animation does not have anything to do with the software facerig, it's hand animated. Alright in CG terms refers to any setup to make something animateable. Sorry for the confusion

Thehe, thank you ^^   - But in the End this character is going to be male XD    I know, i used a part sung by a woman of this song, but in the end its going to be a girly boy ^^   -  but i am working on a female model too :)
Harrys2blue

Well I go both ways so either way he or she is stunning! :D And your welcome!

You never cease to amaze me. ;3
This looks... exquisite. Like, "Beyond: Two Souls" exquisite. <3
Kemonokun
4 years, 4 months ago
Hehe, thank you so much ^^   But i am far away from the fantastic looks of quantic dreams, plus their work is rendered realtime while i still render 30 mins to an hour per frame, so that wouldnt make an enjoyable game i am afraid XD
GratitudeAdvocate

Yikes!!! Hmm... wishful thinking. Who knows? You might be seeing your contributed works applied to their projects soon! ;3
PLUS! I'd be very anxious to work with you, suggesting you might just consider... conducting commission protocol anytime soon! 83
Seriously... I'd be absolutely interested. Have an... idea or two in mind. Nothing smutty... only musical interpretation. 8)
Kemonokun

Id really love to hear about it, but it might still be a lil while until i take commissions. But i can keep ya notified as soon as i do!
GratitudeAdvocate

Sounds beautiful! I've been contemplating a few ideas lately that would most likely turn out stunningly timeless if done just right. ;3 I'll be sure to keep a third eye open if any new developments pop up....
Until then, I remain ever-faithfully watching and witnessing.
GOD BLESS <3

Fuck secondlife. too many artists wasting their skill their cause furs pay a buck to get a dick on their avatar. Stick with the Hi-qual animations I say.
Fennex

I like your work about handle the mesh in far low polycount at same time of give definition on key points.

Are you using blendshapes for facial animation?
Kemonokun
4 years, 4 months ago
Jap, all driven Blendshapes

you have pulled me from a silence where i never ever comment on works. at all. That's how much fun this is to look at. please please do more fun animations that use your awesome face rig to the most of their ability.
