From Model Making To Animating

Here is a model of Plant 43 from the Resident Evil series, made by me. This is what I based my model on.




















First, I made the mesh of it by creating planes, cylinders, and circles and then welding them together and reshaping them.
















Then, I made the textures using GIMP like this



















Then, I mapped the textures to the model, making it look like this now.












Then, after giving the plant bones and assigning vertices to the bones, I animated it and now it looks like this in it's death animation.

Dissidia Final Fantasy, an awesome game

Dissidia Final Fantasy is a video game developed by Square Enix for the PlayStation Portable as part of the campaign of the Final Fantasy series 20th Anniversary. Dissidia's genre has been described as "dramatic progressive action," featuring characters battling in a 3D environment with the ability to level up and customize characters.
The game unites twenty characters from the original ten installments of the Final Fantasy series, alon with two secret characters from later games. Chaos makes an appearance as the god of discord, while a new character, Cosmos, appears as the goddess of harmony. Each of these gods has summoned ten warriors to fight for them against the opposing god. Now, Chaos and the villains have seized control of ten Crystals and wounded Cosmos, and the heroes must recover these Crystals to restore Cosmos and prevent control of the worlds from falling into evil hands.

Animating 3D Models

For some, animation can be a challenge. For others, animation can be as easy as pie. Animation can be made using a few 3D programs such as Milkshape 3D, Autodesk 3DS Max or Maya. To simplify things, animation is made by moving bones and seting it and then move to another frame and move it and so on. Animation is used in almost every game. A walk or jump of a character in a 3D game is also animation. Animation is also used for 3D movies such as Up. Therefore, animation is a very important thing in the making of 3D games or films.

I've tried animating. It can be hard at first but after some time, it gets easy. Here's an example of animation in motion:

My new blog

Hi, everyone. This is my first blog. I hope to find some of my friend's blogs here such as self-centered Tee Jian Hong who adores Lady Gaga and Ryan Ng Jun Rong.

By the way I'm a 14 year old boy studying in High School Batu Pahat. I live in the small town of Batu Pahat in Johor, Malaysia. My hobbies are playing computer games, growing carnivorous plants, sketching. I have no interest in music except game music. I love watching all kinds of movies. I use the Internet a lot and visit forums to share my thoughts too. That's just some of my hobbies. That's all for now, bye.
