Hi all!!,I finished the head of a new character,his name is Michael and hes the creator of my creature character Son.

This is a facial test of Michael,only is a test,not a final animation.

looks pretty good....but a good test would be if you could lip synch it to something or make the charcater go through somekind of an emotion, that way, the audience can tell if the facial animation is good or not....

But it s agood start..:)

:thumbsup:

I see at around the 5th second a hole appears in his cheek. But other than that it looks good

Nice, the face is capable of some very versatile expressions. I agree with one of the previous posters that adding lip sync would have been a better test :)

I think what you've got here is a fine facial test (looks a lot like what I do to test a face (http://www.jasonosipa.com/Downloads/Movies/SquooshTest4.avi) , too), but I have a question: Are the shapes we're seeing "whole", or are they combinations of lesser shapes? I ask, because, if you have two shapes, that, for example open the mouth, then actually transitioning between the two at animation time, you'll have to do as much un-animating as animating.

Other than that, I think this looks really neat! For sync purposes you might also want to be able to "roll" the lips in and out, but other than that, it seems like you've got the tools to do some neat stuff! Tkae care -J.

First of all,thanks for all comments and sorry for my english.

I animate the face of character combining a total of 20 shapes,Ill like to combine this shapes
with a set up skeleton face,but Im researching and testing how is the best option.
I test a short lip sync animation only with blend shapes,and Im happy with the result,in following days I like to make another lip sync and posting for you look and critique.

If someone have other questions,there are welcom.
