[3D Model] Umbrella Girl (in Off-topic)

Hey all!

I've been working on this all week long! Its a fan art of Pyromaniac's umbrella girl. Check out more of his work here:

Anyways, this is my first successful character model! I sat at the computer all the past week working on this, and I learned a crapload of new stuff. I learned...

- how to model a character from reference sheets
- how to model clothes on the character
- how to model the darn difficult hair
- how to create an armature for posing the model
- that creating an armature is ridiculous and time consuming
- that deformations could go terribly wrong during posing
- how to use shape keys
- that shape keys can also be annoying
- how to hide bad deformations (and fix them when necessary)
- and tons of other small stuff.

It was one heck of an adventure, and I plan on developing my abilities further with character modeling. Stay tuned!

Very impressive.

One word though-stilettos.

Looks great Pixel! Who is "Pyromaniac's umbrella girl"? Did you forget a link?

wow, That's amazing.

Something like that would have taken me months.

Great Job!

Very cool artwork! However, I'm under the distinct impression you've never watched a MotoGP race. THOSE are umbrella girls! :O)

Wow, thanks for reminding me I have 0 talent, oh and Michael Jackson called, he wants his nose back.

Something like that would have taken me forever plus a few more weeks. Very fancy! *smile*

Iono, the character just seemed attractive to model.
