Old Lady WIP
show user profile  jareu
hey people,

working on a short animation for a animation festival in adelaide, south australia called DigiTopia.
Its basically about an old man who neglects his wife, eventually she dies and he is stuck with sorrow in the realizing that he had taken her for granted. Its supposed to be quite a dark little film but nonetheless here is my start to it:

Wrinkles to be added later as i do the unwapping

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

His forehead looks too extreme to me.
It is very hard to make 'young' geometry look old just with bump and textures.
As one gets older everything starts too sag :/ like under the eyes, around the mouth, and the cheeks, jawline, neck.... on and on. So I would try to build some of those forms into your mesh.
He does have character though!

[EDIT] Hehe... woops it's a woman... so it needs to be a bit more rounded... but saggy.
A more feminine hairstyle would be good too.

thanks, I know the hairstyle looks terrible! but its only temporary until i make a better one. I agree on the old saggy mesh as opposed to just texturing, and i tried, but im not sure exactly where to add this detail. im thinking maybe puffier eyes, saggy neck etc.
The overtall forehead and long neck are part of the characture's egsadurated proportions, later i will be adding clothes and then shell be rigged and animated

It looks more like a very undernourished child, (large eyes and forehead) but still looks good and will get there.
