At the risk of sounding like a total man-child, I’d like to address what this is for.
Through volunteer work I am a co-administrator of a Thomas the Train forum for kids with Asperger’s and Autism. It’s easy volunteer work, and not very rewarding – until I was asked to help make a movie for the kids on the site. Apparently the Thomas show has changed from static faces to computer and kids with the disorder are frustrated at the change. I wrote a script with the admin who runs the site and am going to be directing the trains in some computer program called Trainz. I’d very much like to use Sir Topham Hatt character, animating him in Faceposer, then GMod in front of a greenscreen to interact with the engines, like this clip I made using Breen and one of the locomotives:
It’s the most creative project I’ve had in a long time, so I’m really trying to make it awesome.
If you’re up for it, I’d really like some help with making this guy. I figure Father Gregori would be the best character model to use as a base, as this guy is sort of chubby and short:
Black top hat (gentleman’s pack?) black jacket, yellow vest, grey trousers, white and black shoes.
Very easy, very flat texture work, but I’d rather it be in the hands of someone who knows what they’re doing.
Would anyone be up for the challenge?
