View Full Version : Reference position, how to model my character?

06 June 2002, 02:46 AM

Hello, this is my first post so i hope this works.

What you see below/above(?) is the bone structure of my new character. I've only modelled human-like characters so far and had no problems on how to put my character in a reference position but this little creature is a little different. So my question is; how do i model this creature? Like how it is standing now or do i force my creature to stand-up straight?

Thanks in advance!

Looks fine to me. I believe the point of 'positioning' your character for riggin is to have them in a natural or common state. So if your creature is gonna have a hunched back 90% of the time and you're not gonna go to the extreme to straight it out at any time, i would leave it.
I think that is why people argue over whether to model a human head with the mouth open or closed, b/c which one is a more natural state?
