BA: Glamourous Sticky Lips

This was annoying and fun. Learned how to make shift script in the process too~
Did end up with a problem I have worked around, I have re started this process twice as well in hopes to fix it but to no avail.

I will definitely focus on this issue later.

@ Alan - Blendshape question

What would be the best way to add wrinkles on a blendshape?
(circumstance. When the lips pout I'd like to get wrinkles on it)

I was thinking that I'd be able to pose and maybe add wrinkles to the said blendshape through Zbrush/Mudbox
(though not really sure about all the workings out for that)

Also with the sticky lip addition would it be best to add the sticky lip blendshapes first then add the pout blendshapes after, on a separate parallel layer?

BA: Glamourous Project Skinning

I'm not sure if the inner mouth works just yet but I'm sure I'll be able to judge it after I add the teeth~

BA: The Glamorous Project Lip Detailing Finished

Finally the lips are done and ready for Skinning~

It is subject to possible change but for now this is definitely good enough to rig~

BA: The Glamorous Project Lip Creation Detailing

I was able to put the lips through the much needed detailing they deserved in Z Brush.
With the texture and the detail added I now feel confident to add the sticky lips ability to the lips.
I'm not sure if I should combine the sticky lips blendshapes after the mouth blend shapes or not so I'll go through the supplied tutorial and ask for a suggestion~

(Way to high poly count error number 1)
(Low Poly Lips)

Above were some of My trail and errors on the lips, after talking to Dom and getting some of the tuts he used I finally was able to get a great map on a low poly model.

So look out lips I know what I'm doing now!

BA: The Glamorous Project Lip Creation Pt2

 Blockout Done, I want to put this into zbrush/Mudbox to see if I can add some realistic lip lines.

After helpful advice from Tom Beg I've been able to get the right colouring for the lips.

Creating the glam lips

Really excited with this!

BA: The Glamorous Project Lip Test

Before creating the actual lips I'll be using I've created test lips to try out a hiding technique advised by Daniel and Chris.

It was a way to show the inside of a object and not the outside, meaning it allows me to have a floating pair of lips.

Using a multi shader I will be able to colour the inside of the mouth while leaving the back invisible.

BA: The Glamorous Project

Due to privacy reasons this project will be called "The Glamorous Project".
I visualise a pair of lips for this particular piece and am in the process of creating said lips.

Created a map of lips to help me decide on the perfect shape along with possible mouth poses.

I then drew the lips to be recreated in 3D alongside the possible poses I want the mouth to act out.
I plan on using Zbrush to flesh out these realistic to be looking lips~

I also found a rig I'd like to use in making the lips sticky (lips slowly parting etc) I am quite excited in getting that to work so I'll try a couple of tests first then apply it to the lips.

BA Work Experience: The beginning

Yesterday we met with Butch Aunties' Pete Wallace. The briefing introduced some new possibilities with the use of Maya, After Effects and a new program we were told about 'Resolume'.

We have quite a packed brief schedule but because its new and exciting it feels....right.

We have to make VJ packs as part of our brief, I found that it is similar to what I used to make on my own, except I used dancing so I rather interested to get stuck into that.

Let the creative Juices flow!
