Using Animated Textures in a Character Rig in Maya. Zeth Willie with a couple of posts looking at using animated textures in the Maya rigging pipeline as an example, having a hand drawn face on a character which you can control and animation in Maya.

Zeth also looks at how to use animated normal and bump maps to add detail to your character in certain poses almost as a texture-based corrective shape. Check out the article for Using Animated Textures in A Maya Rig here, and also Using Bump and/or Normal Maps in Maya for Character Pose Space Deformations here. Zeth Willie writes: Been asked a few times lately about using animated textures on a rig and how to control those textures. Like with most things in Maya there are a bunch of ways to do this . . . you could apply different textures to duplicates of geometry and literally swap geo for any given frame of texture you want, but that’s a) a pain to set up and b) kinda like shooting a fly with bazooka.

Realistic Eye Modeling for 3D Characters by Krishnamurti Martins Costa

A lot of times, bad eyes can "kill" your character literally, even if it has the most perfect modeling of the world. The importance of the eyes is exactly this: give life to your character. Therefore, don't underestimate this very important step of CG character construction... if not, you've only created "puppets". There is a quite big camber in the cornea, in the iris area. That irregularity, that all of us have, can become a great problem for a CG character. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. ...in quads, cutting the mesh this way: Facegen modeller. 12 expert tips for modelling 3D spaceships and space scenes.

We’re sure many of you have been inspired to get your teeth into some spacey art so here, digital artist Rory McLeish gives us his expert tips for creating great-looking spacecraft and backgrounds. Rory McLeish unleashed I concentrate primarily on creature and character concept design now, but my association with spaceships and sci-fi image production goes back a long way. It goes all the way back to my art school student days when I first picked up an airbrush in an attempt to emulate the work of the people that were my influences at the time: science fiction book cover artists such as Chris Foss, Jim Burns and Tim White.

The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck

I have spent almost my whole life– 31 years– caring far too much about offending people, worrying if I’m cool enough for them, or asking myself if they are judging me. I can’t take it anymore. It’s stupid, and it’s not good for my well being. Kuler. S Free Texture Library. Buy Every Texture Buy every texture on this website for only $33.

"Cloud Structures" 1962 by Buckminster Fuller

It's all scale-based engineering. The geodesic dome is special in that it's the most efficient way to enclose a volume. That is, it encloses the most space with the least amount of materials possible. Due to cube/square considerations, this effect becomes more pronounced the larger the space enclosed. Cloud nine (Tensegrity sphere) Geodesic spheres (structures of triangular components arranged to make a sphere) become stronger as they become bigger, due to how they distribute stress over their surfaces.

Cloud nine (Tensegrity sphere)

As a sphere gets bigger, the volume it encloses grows much faster than the mass of the enclosing structure itself. Fuller suggested that the mass of a mile-wide geodesic sphere would be negligible compared to the mass of the air trapped within it. He suggested that if the air inside such a sphere were heated even by one degree higher than the ambient temperature of its surroundings, the sphere could become airborne.

There are many different ways to approach a scene which contains a character walking.

The first thing you need to figure out is what the scene is about. Is it a one off shot of a character walking into frame and saying a line? Is it a series of scenes of one or more characters walking and talking. I have worked on both types and many variations. When I was working on The Incredibles, I got a bunch of shots with Edna and Bob walking through her home talking about the past when he brings his super suit to be repaired. Now, what about a one off shot? The last case scenario would be the shot where you are basically keying the walk from start to finish. 360 wingsuit video from Norway - Norway official travel guide.
