Poses with props

Posing

Victoria 2 at the pole

Sometime you recognize something only after you've done the next step. Here, for example you see

(1) that the whole arm has to be moved to the right side (in the direction of the pole)

(2). For doing this I have various possibilities: Twist the left shoulder (the part 'left shoulder' of V2) more

Move the left shoulder with the rotate tool a bit in the right direction Move the left shoulder with the rotate tool a bit in the right direction. Or maybe a bit of everything from the mentioned above :o) (3).

The fact that the hand is inside the pole doesn't bother me - this will be corrected later. For posing the fingers I again choose the known method and I'm only satisfied if it looks accurate from all sides :o).

Here I chose the 'flat shaded lined' view to pose the hands. Using views without textures is less distracting when doing poses - and so you can also work more fluidly (your computer needs more processor-power if it has to work with textures).

Drawing Ground Pose
Now - a little bit of light and a ground texture - and I can make a test-render :o).

Two-handed poses with a "parented prop" are always complicated and different. Poser is only able to set ONE parent (e.g. sword to left hand or gun to right hand). A so-called "chain" (e.g. right hand will follow sword that is parented to the left hand) is not possible. So - there's only the possibility to paste the one hand on the other. Of course, this can hinder posing because a hand (the one that is not holding the prop) always has to be put on the prop or other hand. Especially if (as when holding a gun) a prop has to be held in front of a body - this will lead to some recognizable problems in a while by posing this pose here.

Kindly, Gekko sent me more than one image so I can imagine the pose very well. A little problem:Gekko is a "lefty". Of course, I could do this pose also for left-handed persons, but mankind is predominantly right-handed. So I'm doing the following:

I just mirror every image of him horizontal :o)

Mike 3 is more usable for such a pose than any other figure before (P5's Don is also a good choice) because of the the fact that he has so many polygons and finally he (Mike 3) is the most flexible male character so far.

Because of the many images of a "real" pose, it makes it really fun doing a Poser-pose from that :o). Normally you don't have that much "viewing-material".

- ahem - comparing the bodygeometry). If I look at myself, my left elbow would rest different on my left thigh.
