Now that we don’t have anything on the Tuesday slot here on the blog, I was thinking “what would be a good idea to fill that slot?” I’d kinda like for it not be a rehash of something I’ve done before. Then an idea struck me, but I wanted to run it by you guys before I went a head with it.
The idea is kind of hard to explain, so I try to word it best I can. What I was thinking of doing is basically screen capturing myself making a character on Heromachine, narrating the process and then posting the video as that weeks post. Obviously it wouldn’t just be me creating a whole character in one video, that video would be like 2 hours long and no-one has time for that, but instead it would be broken up into segments of around 20- 30 minutes (hopefully), say video 1 would be the base and posing, video 2 would be costume, video 3 would be hair/ face, video 4 would be background (if there is one) and video 5 would be shading and other finishing touches. That way it would take us all the way up to Christmas and then we can go from there. Also, it gives you guys a chance to have some control over the content, because you can make suggestions for things I can do with the character for the next weeks video (basically like a community character build only with one person doing the actual building). It might also help some of the newcomers with some of the more advanced aspects of Heromachine 3, such as shading and posing.
And the good thing about having this as a Tuesday slot, is that I’m not working on Tuesdays so I’ll be able to record the video same day and, because I’m in the UK, if I record in the morning it should be up at the regular time for all you guys across the pond.
So what do you guys think. If you like the idea, we can start next week (so you can make suggestions in the comments if you so wish, just remember, when it comes to posing, I’m no DeliriousAl). If not, then I’ll try to come up with something else.
