so this is done

So here's the final video from that project I've been posting about, this is probably my first time actually animating in 3D so all things considered it turned out pretty all right. 

For this first one you should probably actually view it on youtube, in 720p, it's not as fuzzy.  In fact all of them would probably be better viewed in 720p, haha.


Really short walk cycle


A WIP of Mabel & Dipper from Gravity Falls that I may never finish but maybe I will.

how this happened

So I noticed I had a billion versions of the kukri thing all over my computer and dropbox, and because of that I could kind of make this really..........involved process thing of this painting.

So we start with what I posted a few weeks ago, a sad attempt at skin color over the pink value sketch. Just an overlay layer or something.

I thought that was too pink so I tried to make it more brown, I initially was trying to make her darker skinned, but it wasn't working. :/

 Here is where I started trying to paint over more aggressively and the skin lightened up, mostly because I couldn't get the values right and I just went with pale as the driven snow, haha. The next skips some steps but I just painted over everything, I just kind of picked at it for a few days. I realized her face wasn't working for the 'third dimension' so I had to redo it. I didn't follow my initial value sketch at all as I have a hard time with that process for some reason and tend to just jump right into using color. Even though I really tried not to do that here. :C

Here's pretty close to final, I spent most of my time on the face.

After some texture stuff and some layer effects, HERE WE GO.

and that's how you probably shouldn't do things.
