Doesn’t have to be realistic or it could be like a real person. I think I have Hiro 5, but I’ll have to check. I did download the DS tutorials mentioned as being free this weekend. And got the two that cost under $5 each.
I wanted to working on something at least I know what it will look like in comparison to something I have never seen. Working on a character, but I have only a mental image of how it should look fiinished isn’t always easy for me to visualize. I can do it, but I find it easier to learn something new by taking a known and changing it around in my mind. Then trying to make those changes in software. Eventually I hope to do completely original content, but for now I will need to have some starting areas, items, etc. I can alter.
Sometimes it is hard for me to figure out how to do something as I can visualize it, and then spend over an hour, or more, trying to figure out the method to get there. I realize it will come with familiarity with the software. It is like the mapping software I bought years ago to make game maps,\. The maps looked awful at first, and got better with practice.
I’ve seen various looks, hair, skin, etc. styles in various AMVs on youtube. For the time being, I was more looking for places to start.
Thanks for the model/pose suggestions. I’ll look those over and figure what to do next. I’m stil learning the DS interface, and I think I have gotten it figured out how to bring up content when it never seems to be the same thing twice in a row during the same session… I mean what I see on the left side of DS when I’m working on it.
If this seems a bit scattered, my apologies. My recent job has me getting up early in the morning, before 5 AM, and getting off to work. I’m usually asleep by this time on weekdays.
I’ve copied your psot to a text file on my hard drive and I’ll go over it when I can.
