View Full Version : question about the eyes....

08 August 2005, 12:19 AM
A quick question for all of you wonderous modelers, I'm trying to figure out how the guy's at Pixar did the modeling of the eyes for their characters, particularily Monster's Inc. Did they just create a basic head structure and put an open sphere inside, or did they model the eyelid all in one. Particularily the slippery purple guy.

i would be pretty certain it was more than just a sphere.there weas most likey a few layers, on for the cornea and a few for the eye skin. shaders would have also played a big part in getting the look right (facing racio's etc)

yeah, I understand that part, what I'm more concerned about is whether the eyelids were part of the actual body, or just rested on the mesh.

Thanks for replying btw.
