View Full Version : Skin movement question

06-08-2008, 05:48 AM
Has anyone seen any video of a model doing the motions of limb movement (legs bending, arms bending, shoulder movement) tha shows in closeup where skin stretches or moves?
I am doing some morphs and got the shape down pat, but the skin (freckles) seem to not move correctly and looks weird.
They move in right direction, but I'm thinking is it too much? Not enough?

Just wondering....

Its gonna vary hugely from person to person, according to age, skin elasticity, fat content, etc, etc.... ur nest net is just to whip ur shirt off in front of a mirror, and make the best guesstimation u can.

Ps... good luck, im still trying like a mofo (after years of doing the same) to get decent deformations out of LW in those areas on characters.

How are the freckles applied?

UV map on mine
DNA on real person :D
Just looking for basic skin movement.
Like if my girl raises arm straight up, how far down her sides is skin pulled, (from mid rib area....from abdomen, how much of chest is pulled up or up and out.) Stuff like that. And face....skin pulls less at jaw hinge than at cheek/nose area, but where is it starting the pull...Top of cheekbone, bottom...90% pulling at jawbone..10% at cheek..5%?

Just basic movement of skin.

I say freckles on real person because it's easier to see them move/twist
