time to start ! After different trials, I've found the rig I'll use
for the contest. It's from the website riot shared. The rig is “
Mechanix Woman “. I already have an idea about my character and I
don't want to be influenced by a "beautiful" character
(with textures, accessories for example) or do not focus enough on
the poses and silhouette.
let's talk about my character and her weapon:
imagined a woman who likes dancing and having fun in fights. She's
really agile with her weapon and never stops playing and dancing with
it, likes the weapon is her dance partner. For her, fights are like
shows, and fighters are actors. To please the audience (and also
because it's funny !), she likes taunting people.
weapon is a hoop which can transform to a lasso. Also there are
spikes on it and they can be scaled so she can choose when they
appear. With it, her moves are always fluid and in union like it's a
part of her.
the moment I've choose to do a recall animation. For the moment, I'm
looking for poses to get used to the rig and then, I start working on
references are a mix between salsa for her footsteps, hip-hop for the
dynamic and strong poses, and gymnastic rhythmic for the movements
with the weapon.
you soon and good luck everyone ! (I've seen during the week a lot of
good ideas )
