I would love to hear any comments on the style that I have chosen or anything else.
The mouth will not be modeled into the face, rather it will be a simple animated texture. I have been trying to come up with a method to do that, and I will attempt to create something similar to what David La Sala showed in his recent TD reel with his dancing and singing musical notation characters.
I have tried to keep as close to the base human proportions as I could, to allow for a greater range of motion that will closer relate to human norms.
I have worked on the eye shapes that I will be useing, while there may be additions, I feel that this is about where I stand for a good range of emotions.
With this as the texture effect for the eyes, matched up with a mouth shape that I have started but not finished all the variants for, I think that I will have a verry styleized, but emotive, and interesting character to animate with.
I would love any opinions on this that anyone has.
Thanks in advance.
