Building a Character in Their Best Light

Carolyn full body 3d scan

Happy belated 4th of July to all of you. We hope you spent it with lots of family, friends, food(!) and time off. As you can see in the example of our Patriot above, she is still busy getting some of the “barbecue” out of her teeth (we’ll giver her the benefit of the doubt). But getting back to the topic at hand, how do you build a character to meet your exact expectations?

During production, we all know how one can run around multitasking like a mad person leaving little time to really focus on the detail. Here are some tips to help keep your projects on track.

Tip #1: When using outside resources, the feedback we often receive from our artists is the lack of art direction from the start, helping them get it right the first time. So our first tip is to really map out what you expect out of the character that will be 3D scanned and/or 3D modeled.

Tip #2: Give details about the clothing, hair, facial detail, props, etc. For instance, if the character is wearing a jacket, does it need to be open, zipped up, buttoned up, partially open, etc.? If you will be scanning the head, will cyber hair be used or will they be wearing a hat, helmet or other device that will cover the hair? Next, how close to the camera will the character need to be for detailed work to the face? Will their whole body need to be in the shot? There is a great deal to consider when 3D scanning characters, especially if they are up close. We will always ask about the topology for the rigger as well to make sure it works for them the way they are used to.

Tip #3: Don’t get stuck in the valley of assumption. If there are other specifics you have, be sure to inform your team or outsourced team. The more you express your expectations, the fewer conversations you’ll need to have.

Our Patriotic Vampire above had a completely different position and different clothing. She received a new texture map for her outfit and her head received a newly modeled hat. We added the knife and axe from our inventory and repositioned her hands and fingers around them.

A New Wave of Technology: Presenting Your Merchandise in 3D

The internet is a fresh faced landscape still yet to be fully explored. Recently Amazon has had their 20th anniversary of establishing a marketplace for household goods of all kinds. When viewing a product, there are generally a handful of images. That was the past. One of the newest waves of technology that break upon the internet’s shore are 3D representations of these goods. They are digital replicas which can be viewed from an entire 360 degree gamut. You may zoom in, rotate, and inspect the texture and surface – therein enhancing the consumer’s experience (possibly first experience) with a product.

Photography is not going away any time soon, but its downfalls should be known. The following variables exposure, focus, composition, resolution, and white balance are key to creating an image that is candy for the eyes. Browsing the internet will show you quite a range in the quality of images. To create a digital replica there are precautions to make to ensure a quality result ensues. Using 3D scanning to first capture the object’s shape, scale, silhouette, and likeness is the first step to creating the ideal digital replica. Secondly is the photographic reference which must be taken with 3D emphasized as a focus. That means the photographer must be experienced in working in 3D to know the essential camera angles necessary to reproduce the product accurately.

3D Scanned Watches, accessoriesThis is a great chance to evolve and establish a new standard on how merchandise is presented in the online environment. The previous medium of magazines, brochures, and newspapers would not be able to support 3D environments, yet today’s smart phones, laptops, and computers are most enjoyable when pushing the medium – when playing in the third dimension. Perhaps the new jump will be holographic, but for now let’s embrace 3D digital items of all kinds.
