“Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!” — Clement Clarke Moore (1823)
Box modelling Teddy… using the image planes as references.. the hard bit is arranging flow to be more anatomically correct so when the model deforms it will bend in natural places… just trying again and again to see if I can make it work so that there are minimum poles, where more than 4 edges meet at a vertex, and that they are where I might need some pinching, and no faces with 3 or more than 5 edges. I have done 2 Teddies so far amd may do another 1 because I am not too happy with the shapes I have.
I started Teddy 3 times. I changed the joints of the limbs to be flat like it is stitched.
I had to straighten arm and legs but they can be rebent to a normal pose after the skeleton is in.
I liked it when I used a lattice to change the shape of the arm and leg, it looked better than by moving vertices 1 by 1.
The original face was terrible and the eyeballs were awful. I found it looked best when I extruded the snout out from the face
