Welcome to the Project

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

Lots of Great Developments

Good news all around for E.C.M.W.P. - It looks like my second term at Ex'pression will be supervising a group project centered on the wardrobe initiative. Huge thanks to Andrew S. for making that possible. It means I'll have the dedicated efforts of 10 or more students for 5 weeks (M/W/F). The challenge is finding roles for all the varied disciplines as not everyone is a character modeler/texture artist.

I've been casting my net out there to find professional concept artists who'd like to offer their costume concepts for consideration of getting built by the project. Jayna P. and Andrew N. - I'll be looking for you to do some more concept work as well ;) I'm going to try trolling LinkedIn next, but let me know if you have any other ideas to reach out to the pro-concept community.

David W. did a great job of re-topologizing the hands for Morpheus, with feedback and guidance from Rodney B. I'm sending the .obj to Josh today to get his comments. The face on Morphy is rock solid, but the body needs a little love, especially around the armpits. I'm hoping before the second semester starts, all the base mesh stuff is already taken care of.

I've got a meeting next week Wednesday with Miwa K., the Director of Marketing at Ex'pression College to discuss the project (fingers crossed for even more support.)

All said, a great week for the project!
