Happy New Year!
Happy New Year 2013 everyone!
We are now into the year 2013! I hope everyone’s wishes, dreams and ambitions come true this year
I know a few things are changing in my life already – I start work on the 7th of January and will actually start earning some salary! – Which can help finance some future projects ^ ^!
So… speaking of projects, I have more updates! Today, I have Lucy’s jacket Zbrush-ed and completed!
It’s something I’ve been putting off for quite a while… simply because the last jacket turned out a little sub-par to my expectations and quality level. It was also a challenge to try and identify the thickness of the jacket and exact material. I’ve been looking at riding jackets, motorcycle jackets, casual jackets, winter leather coats and even Leon’s!
In the end I found an image that was actually an imitation of Leon’s jacket from a cosplay creator, they used a slightly thicker leather material to fashion the jacket and contained nowhere near as many creases and folds, this; I decided was actually the jacket I was looking for. It was fashionable yet also practical. As the game has almost-constant-rain, it would make sense for Lucy to don a thicker leather jacket.
So, after looking carefully at the creases and styling, I translated the details to my custom jacket mesh. It took 15,000,000 polygons and 4-5 hours, but I think I got a nice result in the end.
So with the new jacket placed on Lucy, she currently looks like this…
As you can see, there’s still a few bits left to do, the gloves, t-shirt and boots (off-screen). However, I’m aiming to have all of them done by the end of the week!
So that’s it for now guys,
Happy New Year once again and I hope everyone has a good vacation before resuming work / education and/or generally whatever you do!
