Week 2

September 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

Another Friday and another productive meeting with Allison, Dr. Wolfe and myself.  First we looked at the reference images of pants that Allison and I found.   We plan to base our new model for Paula’s pants off two images.  We will be basing the tailoring of the the waist on the pants off of this pair found by Allison. 

The pants that Allison found have a large bell bottom shape which would move very freely and be a lot of work to animate well so, for the leg shape of Paula’s pants we will instead be using this reference that I found .

The straighter legs of these pants should be a lot simpler to model and animate.

Our tasks for this week are some final preparatory work before we start modeling.  To that end I will be looking at where and how creases form in pants so that we can figure out what areas of our mesh will need the highest polygon density.  I will also be learning about how to set bones and skin in 3ds Max.  Meanwhile Allison will be reviewing modeling techniques and procedures.
