This is the Amy’s head I’ve modelled. One big thing I changed about the head is the size. I realised that it doesnt have to be that high… its a waste of time to model that when in the end theres going to be hair on top of it anyways.
It took me many hours to get the mouth looking decent… I still have to fix it a bit because I still think it looks strange. The mouth has always been the hardest part of the face to model (for me). I’ve struggled with it since 3D Animation I when I modeled my first character (Megara from Hercules). Back then it took me like a week to get it right. I feel much more comfortable with it now though, but I still find it difficult.
I used the same set of teeth and mouth I used for Felicia (character from last term’s short film – Mon Amie). The face structure if both characters is similar so I figured they can probably share the same set of teeth and mouth.
I imported Felicia’s head (right) into the scene to compare and they look pretty similar… Felicia just looks younger than Amy.
This is the overall look so far…
