Bo the Creature – Part 2


 

I have finally completed the second part of my video. It took a while, but here it is. Enjoy!

 


As I edit, my own creation scares me

Decisions, decisions


Making a series is going to be very difficult. Today I thought about it for a bit, and I realized that I have spent a long time just making Bo the Creature so far. I was planning to make a series, but now I am not so sure. Perhaps it would be easier to have a movie instead. It would take less energy and I could spend my time focusing on other things as well. I did not make a final decision yet, but I am considering switching my path. Stay updated, bye!


“Stage magic is like the professor’s puzzle in the sense that magic is
based upon invalid initial assumptions. The magician presents a logical
“ proof, ” but obscures the fact that the original assumption (that
no trickery will be used) is actually the conclusion that we are meant
to draw from the act. In any case, it is an invalid assumption because
the magician certainly does use trickery in one form or another. A magician’s
proof consists of visual cues.”

I edited Farnham a little to give him a better shape overall. Here it is:

I finally made a complete 360 turnaround of a character. And it is Abigail’s mom! Here’s the result:

Just the sides put together in motion:

Sides


I am finished with all the sides for Farnham. Next will be the hands probably. Here it is:

3 Head poses!


Title is self explanatory. Here’s Farnham:

Full Body


Here’s the completed version of Farnham overall. I made the legs longer. Luckily I didn’t rig both sides first. I might add some details or textures later but right now here’s what I have:

Emooootions!!!


Unlike with Abigail, I made the emotions before I made the body. However I will start with the body before I do the head turns. Here are some samples of Farnham’s emotions:

Abigail: Back head turn


A real quick head turn of Abigail. I just have to check the front head turn and I will be done with Abigail!

Views


I finished creating the different head views for Abigail. This is not final since I still need to add details and move some points around. I didn’t include the Back View because I didn’t like it very much =p Here it is:

If you click on the images fast enough, it looks like a head turn!


I decided to make the pants longer because of how the leg looked before. I also added gradient to the skin and eyes. I added a bow as well. Here it is:

Here is how it looked before when you bent the leg:

And now:

I will add gradient to make it look better. I have been having problems with gradients in AS. I had to bind every body part to a bone using the Bind Layer tool. I will keep searching for another way to do it though.

Update!


If you read my previous posts you know that I decided to make a movie with Bo. However I changed my mind and decided to make a series instead. I drew sketches of the new characters but I’m not gonna post it because it will not look that good (and you may know that if you’ve see sketch of Abigail). I’m actually debating still if I should start working before or after Anime Studio 8 is realeased, I’m not sure yet. I’m still experiencing with Anime Studio 7 with the time I have (not a lot hehe). I hope I get something done by the end of summer though. I guess we’ll have to see. Bye! Come back again!
