Almost there! Getting ever closer! Now that the characters are as good as done (some tweaking here and there and possible later additions aside) it is time to get everything into postion, literally! Today I’ve been playing around with posing the characters and fitting them into the final picture, so that I could I bring you today the beginning of the end:
Hip and Hop were the first to receive the posing treatment. Since it would have looked kind of boring (not to mention really static) to just paste the already existing versions into the picture, I decided to give them something to do, make things a bit more dynamic. So I gave them a ball and let them do one of the things they do best: play football. ^_^ As they have a fairly simple design it took a bit of fiddling, but overall wasn’t really troublesome. Now they may of course still be subject to change, if I’ll actually find some of the old comics and their designs turn out to have been different… But I’ll get to that when I get to that.
Puar and Shamila are still being positioned, which is a bit harder. This is especially the case for Puar (on whom I have made some slight modifications since the version two days ago, mostly on the feet and the lines). Her picture turned out quite a bit bigger in relation to those of the other characters and since Puar isn’t exactly the biggest anyway I’m going to have to find out a way to size her down a bit without losing too much of the picture quality. Progress is being made, though.
Aah, how good it feels to get ever nearer to a finished product! Won’t be long now! ^_^
