In order to feed the pipeline as efficiently as possible in our limited time, we worked out this schedule of 3 modeling stages…
1st Stage = 5 days: Model with focus on form/proportions. Lock proportions. Pass to Nathan for rigging.
2nd Stage = 5 days: Model further detailing, topology refinement for better deformation with retopo, final inside mouth/teeth, etc.
3rd Stage = 5 days: Sculpt finer details/surface.
I started with the Dragon Baby 2 weeks ago, followed by the Dragon Adult last week. 1st stages of both are now completed. Today I start on the Shaman!
