Dragonkin - completed rig

Dragonkin base model showing off the tail IK

I've spent a good amount of time trying to work out how the hell to do a prehensile tail rig. The last time I did it, it involved a 72 bone multi-goal IK chain.

It kinda hurt.

This time, it involves a 65 bone IKB chain, main direction controlled by the big ball-shaped null object on the end.

I haven't yet tried to wrap the tail around something but I am stupidly confident.

Going to do some sliders to control the fingers and the wings, then that's ready to go, and I have to do the sliders thing for the fingers on the other two models before I start building characters.

But I can start building characters! YAY!

How high can you fly with broken wings?

The wing rig before weight maps kept it roughly in shape

Weight mapping and adjusting geometry on wings. Still a way to go, obviously.

Catchup, Tapfish economics, cartography and Lojban

[imported from livejournal and backdated]

[this post got a lot of interesting/amusing comments mostly about people apparently annoyed by my decision to use Lojban as the IAL (international auxiliary language) for AEfter Ragnarok - bit sad to lose them]

Head v[x]

Close up of the more or less completed head

Fixed the nose sooner than I thought I would.

Quick render of the subpatched model with the default lighting. Just got the tongue to do, once I figure out the best way to model it.

Buy me a drink first

Zara and Megan

Zul'jinn jolted internally as Megan seemed to materialise out of the crowd beside them, catching hold of Zara and pulling her close with a playful growl as she attempted to nip the smaller girl's shoulder. Zara for her part looked completely unsurprised, casually fending off the double grope by catching Megan's wrists, leaning back against the heart stoppingly beautiful blonde.

"Hey Megs," she said, her voice coloured with amusement, before spinning out of Megan's arms and turning to face her. Megan followed up, grabbing Zara's hips and pulling her close again, this time planting a kiss on the lips.
