So, something different for a change.
I have never attempted nor tried to do modeling nor animation on the computer before - and I know that if I ever hope of being an animator or working at a studio, I have to know this stuff. It's just that...I feel like I'm using some fine precision surgery tool with my left foot.
My attempts at using Blender have left me a tad bit frustrated - I had to watch a 30 minute video that just explained the user interface of the program. Wanting to create something with immediate results, I switched to Sculptis instead.
It's actually pretty fun - and a bit harrowing too. It forces you to analyze every aspect of your sculpture - switch views, do some subtle additions and what not.
Who am I kidding, I have no idea what I'm talking about.
Anyhow, here's my first attempt at it. The person I created looks androgynous and weird, but I'm still working on that.
