Anyways, for our first assignment of the term we had to take our shot from class 4 and do the facial animation/lip sync on it! We had to film some reference of our face as we said the line of dialogue, then write it out phonetically and to some planning sketches.
My planning sketches were a little rough and gross looking but they're just for planning...
Then we did our first pass on the face.
Then, in week 2 we had to use the bishop rig and pose it in two different facial expressions from photos.
We also did our second pass on the face. I worked a little more on the eyes and brows, as well as smoothing out the lip sync a bit more.
In week 3 we had another 2 face poses.
And our final-ish pass on the face.
I also tried customizing the Bishop 2.0 rig so that it wouldn't just be the plain ol' bishop. It still needs some work, but that's what class 6 is for!
