Chance to meet iClone Early in 2006, Reallusion
sponsored an animation contest at Renderosity, I down-loaded
the Trial of iClone and despite not having made any animation
before, I managed to place Third, winning a copy of iClone,
but I would have bought it anyway! I was very excited by how
easy it was to create animated stories using Iclone.
I have always had an interest in 3D modeling and after 8
yrs of embroidery I was ready to make a "career change",
I had been saving and was about to buy Light-wave, but I borrowed
the extra money to purchase 3DMax so I could make Characters
for iClone. I could see the potential for iClone becoming
CCD Program and Ideas for works
Then, I enrolled in the CCD program, and read all the guides
available from the developer centre, I still refer to them
as it is important to have the correct number of vertices
and all the parts named correctly for the characters to import
properly into iClone. Much trial and error later, I made several
pairs of shoes.
Inspiration comes from a lot of places, the Game Myst got
me interested in how 3dmodels were used in games, and it has
been at the back of my mind for years that it would be interesting
to produce models, and now iClone has given me the opportunity.
My first full character was a robot. The original robot design
had problems when the different iClone body shapes were applied
to, the arms flew off in all directions! Time to re-think
the joints, I tried to make the joints believable and my interest
in how machines work helped me here.
The Peacekeepers resulted from learning how the bodysuit works,
I started them while I was trying to solve the robot rigging
problems. I find that if I am getting frustrated with a model,
it is better to put it away and start something new. Often
the answers to the problem come to me once I stop stressing
In addition, reference is almost a must. Much to his amusement,
my Chiropractor lent me a 1/2 size skeleton while I was modeling
I have a couple of notebooks to write ideas in before I forget
them, I borrow books from the library some on costume and
a couple on 3d Modeling, and thrift shops are good source
of cheap picture books to use as reference.

Here are poser pictures, although I don’t think there
is anything new since discovering iClone!

This page is under construction but I hope soon to have a
showcase of things I am working on.
