This Weeks events include; Making the hands for my robot, and starting to use my new Blender Cloud membership.
I din't so much 3D modelling this week as I'll explain a little later but I did manage to get a version of the hands done. Actually, I went through about 3 variants of the hands but that isn't really important.
The hands follows the classic 5 fingered design like humans have but with a slight twist, all the fingers are the same length. Each finger can also rotate at the base on 2 axis which is something our fingers can do.
I also decided on a name for this robot. S.P.I.R. 1. It stands for Specialised Personal Interactive Robot Number 1. Not the best name ever but it will do for now.
So as a few of you may know, I primarily use the 3D software Blender and have done so for over 5 years now. Although I have used it this long, I am, and probably always will be, learning new things which is exactly why I recently got a membership to the Blender Cloud.
For those who don't know, the Blender Cloud is an on-line collection of resources which include Open Movie assets and more importantly, training. It's not free, but it is well worth the small monthly fee that they ask for (at the moment, its just £7/8). Link to Site
This week I have been slowly going through some of the training they have on there paying special attention to the ones they have on Rigging in preparation for this weeks Weekend Challenge. I've already learned more about rigging in the last week than I have in the last 6 months. Hopefully, this will help me make a good rig for my Elite model and any characters I make in the future.
Next I will probably go over the camera tracking training they have. All 14 hours of it.
