Zombification Begins

Man, I love getting into my work!  I've started the zombification of Bodacious Creed, and yes, I've posted a blog showing this.

Over the last week and a half, I've been working a lot on my thesis again.  Appropriate, as that's when the Spring semester started!  The latest post to my vlog shows my progress on turning Creed into a zombie, and on texturing Anna Lynn Boyd.

Since recording and posting this video last night, I of course have done more work. I'm currently blending in and completing Anna's texture, and have done further sculpting on the back of her knees. I also realized that I need to work on Creed's clothes. Since I plan to rig a version of him for Introduction to Rigging, I should probably have him dressed. Plus, he's going to look so awesome in Old West clothing and the removable metal Steampunk style mask.

Several people have commented on Anna Lynn and Creed's bodies. To some, it looks like Anna's hips are too narrow, and Creed's are too wide. That is actually what the people they are modeled after look like. It's funny, but since I've started sculpting and drawing people over the last few years, to see how much these things are exaggerated in stylized art. Yes, there are women with very wide hips. There are also women with hips narrower than what we expect. As for Creed, the model is probably in his early fifties, and while he's in pretty good shape, that's the shape of his body. The young woman is very attractive, and the man looks well, quite manly. Hopefully this will come across more as the models are completed.
