Searching someone for 3D modeling and animation

Post by WongKit »

Hi,

on this way, I am searching for someone (or a team) who can do some 3D modeling and character design. Do you have experience with Blender or Unity's animation system? Then let me know!

//Update 25.06.2018: I received some initial offers regarding this request, so I will lock this topic for now.

Hi there,

In the last months, I was in contact with 3 different people who offered their help for 3D modeling and animation. Unfortunately, all of them either stopped replying or simply made false promises.

So this is why I am reopening this request again. In the first place, I am looking for a volunteer who wants to create a basic human character as a voxel model. Its height should be around 25 to 30 "blocks". Other than that, there are no fixed specifications.

Creating a voxel model can be done with MagicaVoxel for example. Using this tool requires some practice, but it is very intuitive and easy to learn. There are also plenty of YouTube Tutorials out there, too.

You can visit viewtopic.php?f=2&t=54 for a visual clue on how the art style looks ike.

If you are interested, respond here or send me a private message. I never thought that I need to mention this, but please only apply, if you really want to support this project.

Hi Wongkit.

I'm interested to make both styles (3D and Voxel) to be honest but my level is crap... :(
But i also want to help and support this project to succeed !
Here's my attempt (made on Blender) :

o.o Your render image looks great! If you already worked with Blender, you will have more than enough knowledge to build a voxel character model.

So if you want to try yourself on it, go ahead :)

Although Fallermagie volunteers for 3D modeling and animation, it does not mean, that this position is occupied. If you are comfortable with 3D design, you can still apply or post examples here.

Hi Zetsu,

it looks quite nice :D
Can you check if you could also build a somewhat similar hair style like this: https://images.sftcdn.net/images/t_app- ... enshot.jpg?

Thank you for the preview! I think no nose and less lipgloss would look better :D

Can you make the outer hair look less exploded? Sorry, I do not really know how to describe it better ^^".

Then have one at the verge of exploding.

We are getting close!
Can you do like "shortly after the verge of explosion" with also some more hair on the sides like in your previous example?
I wonder how someone would react if I am describing this sitting at a hairdresser...

I am very thankful for your effort so far! We finally can push the topic 3D modeling a further. Btw, do you also have animation knowledge?

A nervous someone would surely call the cops on you.
Wanting to blow stuff up isn't really trendy these days.

Considering that there are "no fixed specifications" you're certainly a picky one.

I know my way around rigging and animating stuff.

Especially because there is no fixed specification, it is important to try out different looks.

Thank you very much for your patience and the voxel file!

Well, depending on the camera position and distance to the player I'm not really sure if it's worth your time to worry about small details. With a common character shape it should be easy to cycle through different hairstyles though.

Hi WongKit,
I've come across your Project and I too at some point was thinking of making a game that builds on the fundamentals of Fantasy Tennis. You've stayed very true to the original, which is great. Also, a Voxel Style might not be bad, if for example we look at how good it can look in Hytale for example.

Personally I've never worked with Voxels, but I've got 10 years experience more or less with 3D Modeling. Mainly I've been working on my own projects on IMVU and SecondLife. I have experience with making and using animation Rigs in 3dsMax and went to school for 3D Modeling, so I know all the basics.

I've not ever created a full game character myself though, but I would LOVE to dedicate my free time to this, as I've been aching for a new hobby and well.. something to do in life. I've felt pretty without purpose as of late. This would really be a passion project for me as well. So, if you will give the go I would start working on a character design. Not Voxel, but stylized. To show you once it's done.

Hi Fenrir,

actually, your experience and passion for a project like Pixel Tennis sounds too good to be true!
I would really like to work with you and according to your writing, you already seem to have an idea on how a character could look like.

Please go ahead. I am curious to see what you have in mind!
