*insert cads here*
I asked an annon question just to get extra reference of the cat and ended up giving him a new name. Yay!
I thought putting this guy through the full pipeline would be
2. Good practice for: modeling, morpher targets, rigging and (eventually dun nuh nah DAH ) Animating.
3. A Challenge
You'll see there are inconsistencies in notmusa's drawings which I love. Which freed me up to be a little creative as I modeled out.
(This guy is not complete and still a work in progress but I though it was worthy of showing in this state)
Here's some images of the progress so far a long with my unorthodox method of using reference planes. (Orthogonal views are for suckers!)
I used the UV texture editor to focus in on the Cads drawings taken from Notmusa's tumblr, that way all of my reference is inside maya and i can optimize my work space when I need to.
Next step: finalize the model, and get started on rigging!
Notmusa, if you see this, you're awesome. I was going to tell you about it when I was done I promise.
