Kokoro No Kinu Chapter 3 Page 10

It’s finally done! As you can read, my next page for  Kokoro No Kinu is finally finished! It took longer than usual because of school, mainly my CG Character Production class project has taken a lot of my creativity, I’ve been chronicling my process of that on my site as well, so check it out!

Anyway, I now give you the next page to Kokoro No Kinu chapter 3!

CG Character Production Project – Basic CG Model

So, this leg of my character design project has been taking up more of my time and frustration than I was expecting, all because of one mistake. This project is the main reason I haven’t finished my latest page of Kokoro No Kinu. This project had so much unnecessary clean-up because I made a small, but huge mistake.

That mistake you might ask? I used a mirror modifier on my model.

Now this is usually a very smart idea when creating a CG character, so you only have to make one side of it, then mirror so both sides match. I did this too, but with one major mistake. You see, when you mirror, you should only have ONE SIDE of the model.

I did not have that.

I basically mirrored both sides of my model. This meant that inside my sculpted model was another, nearly identical model. This screwed EVERYTHING up. Both layers were merged together, meaning I couldn’t just separate them and delete the duplicate.

I spent countless hours fixing the mistakes that made.

Being the idiot I was, I didn’t realize that Blender, the program I am using, has a remesh modifier, which basically made all my hours of constant fixing worthless.

Literally worthless.

Remesh basically does what it says, it remeshed the CG character I had been designing, lowering the polygon count and merged the whole thing, so I had a nice, neat simple polygon mesh of my character.

The sculpting began again.

This was fairly easy, because I already had the design down, it was just recreating it, and I did. So here is my basic “Alien” model, My next steps are the dreads/hair/tendrils(?) and the clothing/tech. this should be fairly easy though.

The next page of Kokoro No Kinu should be out later this week.
