Basic Guy v3.0 still coming...

Well, I figured that I would at least post something so that all of you that continue to stop by can see that I'm at least moving forward on the new Basic Guy. His current status is that his face is all skinned and the controls are all there. I just need to get them all hooked up to the Osipa style controls... You may have noticed that I have modeled the eyes into the head as well. I had originally planned on doing the floating eye thing, but I decided that it was time to build them in. I also added forehead wrinkles to add just a bit more to his appeal. I have a list of "wants" that people have requested for his rig, that I will try to get in at some point. But, for v3.0, it will most likely only have the updated head. That is what most people have requested.

Now for my excuse as to why I'm not done yet. One word: Work. This month (well, the last 30 days) my task list has become almost too much to do (well, it actually is, but who needs sleep anyway;) ). I have just over a week left before I need to deliver my files to the programmers to implement. After that, my number one goal is to get BG v3.0 done (Well, that and keep my wife and son happy)!!! I'm dying to start setting keys on him as well. I haven't animated much with him in about 3 or 4 years (The apple piece in my reel is about the only animation I ever finished with him).

So once again I apologize for the delay. He is so close.

Happy Friday!
