Welcome to the Project

Remember when all Morpheus wore was that gray leotard? Let's get him into something a little more comfortable.

Update on the Project

Hey Everyone

Not much progress on finding someone with both the modeling talent and time available for the assessment of the base mesh. I have a couple of new people lined up that may have the time soon though. (fingers crossed). I am hopeful that someone will shake loose in a couple of weeks.

A few helpful modeler types have looked at Morphy's base mesh briefly and commented that there are some optimization things that can be done with the palms and backs of the hands. It looks like there is also a need for more detail in the mesh around the shoulder area. It's just a matter of finding someone to do it.

Talked with Andrew S. this afternoon and he had some great ideas that came out of a discussion he had with a lady in the marketing group at Ex'pression: draw on outside professional concept artists by offering a way for people to submit costume concepts for future consideration in the project. That way folks have a chance to get stuff built for their personal projects and the students have a way to interact with people in the industry. I'm very keen on this new facet for the project and I can move forward with this idea independent of any modeling work. Great potential here for interacting with fashion and design type artists as well.

Andrew says there is also a possibility that I will be able to work on E.C.M.W.P. as a group project for 2nd term at Ex'pression. It's contingent on whether a prior approved project goes forward or not. (again fingers crossed)

Not as much forward movement as I would like overall, especially with AAU semester starting next Monday; Which means I will be swamped until May 21st.

That's all for now.

How is this project coming? I would love to have some clothes optional for morphy, after that he will be the ultimate rig! :)
Good luck with everything
