Hi guys, so you might have seen me in and out of the forum for the past few years as have been really interested in mGear mostly thanks to Miquel and through the Rigging buddies podcas and incredible guests.
I had already talked about this project a while back but a server backup wipped out my previous post. Here is a new one since I am back on this project which I will try to finish… possibly this week with your help.
A while back I came across this great design by the amazing Gop Gap on Instagram and thought it would be a great project to rig a low polygon version of his character for my animation buddies and anyone interested to animate actions shots without the burden of a slow rig.
In few days I modeled the character in a pose similar to the Gop Gap design out of basic primitives and comped some FXs in Photoshop just to show what the final presentation would look like.
When happy about the pose and the proportions, I proceeded to neutralise the character and create my mGear guides.
It is a low polygon character but I felt it would be fun if the face could convey a bit of emotion so the eye patch has a blend shape to convey tension with a compression of the brow. That should be fun for close up shots
