Ok, so I've been on some what of a hiatus on my youtube tutorials for the past few months..
So I'd like ta take this time to clarify where I've been and what you can expect from me in the coming months.
Overview (in no particular order)::
~ Anatomy Study *(Unity 3D Game)
~ Rigging Tutorials *(Free on Youtube)
~ DLsite *(Hentai content)
**Using fully rigged male and female models (softbodies, facial rig, deformers, ect..) and rendering out animations for the following "use".
1. Have a static pose for "inspection" ~ where the "model" has a looping breathing animation and eyes follow your cursor.
2. Have hotspots on the body (pecs, biceps, ect) that when clicked ~ the model flexes that muscle group or shifts to a specific pose *(to show deformation of muscle groups, skin folds, ect).
3. After a few seconds, he/she shifts back to the static "breathing animation".
**also put in a few UI buttons to "pause/hold" that specific pose or loop the animation (from start to end and back, again and again) ~
4. Have an ability to "skin and mirror" 50% the model ~ *(switching out the current "full" model).
Can see more about this project here: [link]
**the post is a little old and I've already come to the conclusion I'll be creating the "study" and publishing it, using the Unity 3D game engine.
lol, ya... I know.. I've been trying to find time to publish these since last summer
Anywho, a simple overview of the tutorials you can expect::
Episode 1: Rigging ~ Skeleton
Episode 2: Rigging ~ Skin weights / Soft-bodies *(jiggle physics)
Episode 3: Rigging ~ Special Rig *(IK)
Episode 4: Rigging ~ Clusters
Episode 5: Rigging ~ Control + Clean up
Episode 6: Rigging ~ Facial Rigging
Episode 7: Rigging Conclusion w/Animation.
Honestly, working for people around SW Florida (as a freelance artist) has some advantages.. but I find that I'm always struggling to get work and fighting against college grads that promise employers the world for 1/3rd the price any sane person would charge.
So, I'd come to the conclusion earlier last year.. that in 2013 I should try making some 3D Hentai projects to "test the waters" in how much you can actually make Vs. time spent. ~ (why? cause "sex = sells").
**NOTE:: Honestly, I've never been much for the simple "wham, bam, thank you mam" plots and I really hate how "fake" porn is in general.. so my stories/projects will be much more focused on Narrative, while taking on a very stylized approach to it's aesthetics. **if you're not sure what "Narrative" means, in comparison to games... just google "eroge visual novel" ~ or think of the Mass Effect/Persona games, where the screen would NOT just "cut to black" during the sex scenes.
#1. Simple Flash h-Game ~
Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, After Effects, Flash.
A flash based hentai game, where you can click specific regions on the girl to activate short animation/movies of her "enjoying" your company.
#2. Full Interactive Movie ~
Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, After Effects.
Full length movie with interactive choices (sub plots) that can change the situation/outcome... also has a "cannon" mode, where it plays like a normal movie without the options.. to see how it was originally intended to end.
#3. Action/Adventure RPG ~
Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, After Effects, Unity 3D, Soundbooth/Vegas, Flash.
wouldn't you wanna know
lol, anywho.... LOADS of work ta do this year! ~ but as always, if you have any questions.. comments or topics you'd like to see covered in future tutorials. Please feel free ta drop me a note here or on my youtube page ^_^.
Also, because Deviantart doesn't like Hentai related projects/art/things.... I set up a Newgrounds account that I'll be announcing/demoing my projects on ~ my user: Requiemsvoid.
