Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Thanks for the feedback lolo, Royce, and Iruka! I'm going to try variation D at first I think, as it won't require any animation rigging, but I'll probably at least try modeling C as well to see how they both do in the round. That's a good point about having a focal point in the back Iruka, it could help with the player's sense of what direction they're facing.

    So I did a little pass on simplifying the outfit, and then also tried messing with the proportions a lot and I think I've ended up a lot closer to what I was originally envisioning in my mind's eye.


    I'm really happy with this result in general, but does she still look like a young adult? It's tricky dealing with age on proportions pushed this far. Maybe the proportions on the face could be aged up somehow. Thoughts?

    Hair pulled back and out of her face, ready to work and make a better world.

    I would jot a note down about forearm protection (bracers/wristguards) as a future feature in clothes.

    Right now the one pauldron and pouch on her belt makes this outfit look like it was made for work, but still improvised from what the character had on hand.

  • ToasticusToasticus yeah YEAHRegistered User regular
    Yeah I was thinking about that, especially as she'll likely be using a bow at times. Some form of bracer is likely to make a comeback in the outfit.

    Chugging away at the 3D model now. Man this is fun to work on!


    Should have a reasonable prototype model to rig up for anim very soon!

    Wow that was fast! She looks cute so far.

  • ToasticusToasticus yeah YEAHRegistered User regular
    Thanks Iruka!

    Getting somewhere...


    The geometry structure for the facial features is pretty rubbish for now, but since I should be able to get away with basically a bobblehead in terms of animation rigging, it should be super easy to swap out and update later. Kind of cool the way this intermediate no-textures state is looking so much like claymation.

    import to Unity achieved!


    was so stoked to have a model to move around that I slapped together some crappy platforming code last night and holy moly this is so much fun to work on

    thanks to the default animation blend weights, I have a new reaction gif

    I got a very rough first pass of a running animation working! Woooo! Next up, some simple animations for jumping, falling, and landing.

    thanks Iruka!

    improved the run anim a smidge and added jumping anims, she's a real platformer now!
