It's been a while since I made a new character model, hasn't it? Well, a lot of that has to do with the wings, but I'll talk more about that in a future submission.

Anywho, I linked to a Timelapse video at the top of this description. The timelapse goes over the whole process of the Rainbow Dash model conversion regarding the mane and tail. I'm pretty happy with how the timelapse turned out, and I'm also pretty happy with how Rainbow Dash's mane and tail turned out too.

I'll be posting more Renders soon, showing off the wings a bit more. While I figured out a lot of the technical hurdles when it comes to rigging the wings, I still want to improve how they look, cosmetically. So, feel free to critique the wing's appearance, especially in the renders I'll be posting soon after this one. I'm happy with how the wing rig turned out, but I want more outside perspective on how they look cosmetically.

next time try to match the hair flow with the color. Like this it looks like it's dyed
Reply
:icontherealdjthed:
TheRealDJTHED Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2019  Hobbyist Filmographer
Doing that is deliberate. Matching color to the flow of hair perfectly would throw off the where the colors should be for show accuracy, and vice versa. If I was going for my own style instead of show style, then I would address that properly.

mmm it's more about beliavablity. From the begining the show is not 3D so you are already not being acurate. But if it was intentional and hurts your feelings to be corrected so be it

No real need to say that my feelings are hurt. I was just stating what my approach to creating these models are.

The show is in 2D, but my goal is to create 3D interpretations of the 2D models as best as I can, only making compromises where they are absolutely necessary. I just view the hairline issue as not a necessary compromise to make to correct it fully. Never said you were incorrect in saying that it's not realistic, it's just not what my approach was.

The wings look really good, and do retain a bit of the MLP style with the curve. I <strike>can't</strike> wait to see them animated.

im not gonna be the first or last person to say "i dont like MLP BUT-" so i don't like MLP BUT this is really well modeled, it caught my eye from the front page immediately :0 only thing that seems off is how the hair color is separated, colors split in the middle of strands and the way the colors are sectioned off looks really unnatural. biggest example of this is on the "bangs", the yellow very sharply cuts straight into orange mid-strand. it's not as noticeable on the tail but you can still see the same effect if you look close. i feel like it would look better if the hair colors were sectioned in a way that matched how the hair flows. aside from that this is really well done :D
