Description:

Hey guys,

since a while I'm trying to create characters in a style close to anime. It is quite hard and those of you who have tried it before should know what I mean. This try is my best one so far. I thought I should share it because especially in this field of cg there is almost no english documentation at all... I hope you can learn something from this file. If you have any advices for me please let me know. Also if anyone wants to try to get closer to the perfect image together or if there is something else you want to show me regarding this just send me a mail (dani.kreuter[at]gmail[dot]com) or write me a comment.

    Just from the thumbnails, I'd say you're wrong. There is no "right" way to do it. If you can sense that it's anim

    thanks for your feedback. I just wanted to say that I totally agree with you. There really isn't just one right way. However I still feel far away from what I actually want to make. I'm glad you liked it though.

    Very interesting indeed! Your thumbnails looks wonderful and for sure I'm going to study your setup and ideas.

    A question however: I can't get the same hair color and the animation turns out (a little) too blurred. I'm wondering if it's a problem in my blender build (latest irie 2.63.a+svn50505-0irie1~precise1, that also includes Freestlyle and the planet modifier) or... ?

    Thanks a lot for sharing this. The mouth setup is very interesting. I also like the progress on the body on the hidden layer. I think you should build the rest of the body and make some kind of character template out of it.

    Hi, Daniel! Great character! Just can't make hair textures working. I don't know why. I unpacked 'em (after 1st try) and still can't render with it.

    hi, all. http://www.blendernation.com/2011/07/13/interview-nathan-letwory-on-the-drop-of-quicktime-in-2-58-2/ This change result, Windows user can't read the PSD file. Since there are some persons who can read, a true cause is unknown. PSD will not be recommended.

    As far as I've tested.(read PSD) WinXP(32bit) blender2.63a-release-windows32 is failed. WinXP(32bit) blender2.64-release-windows32 is failed. Win7(64bit) blender-2.63a-release-windows64 is failed. Ubuntu11.10(64bit) blender-2.63a-linux-glibc27-x86_64 is failed.

    PSD is not a problem if heavy users, but all the people would not be the case. Of course, I changed PSD to PNG.

    Could you please have a look with a Blender test build from graphicall? The hair material has a bit of problem. I don't know what is going on.

    I use patched version win32 also latest 2.64 build from Graphicall.org. I'll check other versions. It can be some bug with PSD format reading in Blender.

    Amazing work, I agree with Engelus, looks like Valkyria Chronicles minus a post processing effect. I really like the way the eyes were done. Great work,

    Hi.

    Thank you for the download. I have a bit of a story to share with you. Couple of years ago, I made up an anime girl in illustrator/flash. I made a flash game with her in it. Then I thought "I should make a 3d game of her" And then I came across Blender and I've found it very hard to use. So I am really hoping your work helps because I've found blender really stressful! I've only done 75% of my characters head and hair and... that's it. I made a Japanese street lamp in blender before but its rather plain. I have tried to use something called 'MikuMikuDance model' but its not compatible with my blender version I have.

    I learned a lot from this Blend: The way you use shrinkwrap, How to use drivers etc. There is a lot in here : empty partented to the armature, the eyes follow the empty ( and the armature) plust the empties own animation. And the eyers a shrink-wrapped to the face. Then there is a LITTLE! box which is the driver for the eyes their shapekeys. And then there is a nice setup in the compositor ( but not in use). And then the hair have a cloth modifier, but I couldn't find out where they are pinned to. And ofcourse the modelling , texturing etc. All very good. I learned a lot. Thanks !
