ok, little update today, have modelled the body of my boy character (yet to be named) based off of the reference images drawn by Chloe Paul, the body is looking very good with very nice edge flow and so on, will have the head finished tomorrow and be on my way to rigging him which i hope to finish this weekend. I have opted to clothe my boy in ncloth clothes as they generate very realistic results and have a nucleus node which controls global wind and such which means anything else i want to create in cloth all uses the same global input! neat!
I have modelled a shirt for my boy already, it is a big saggy shirt which i think makes him look even more cute, vulnerable and childlike rather than having well fitting clothes as adults do, this will hopefully create the sense of attached in the audience! I have also chosen to use orange as the colour of the shirt as it is happy and energetic as a child is and will contrast with the bleak environment at the end.
