Olivia - Status Update.
Olivia is near completion, however, the following things are still pending.
Mouth Sprites - She will have the same mouth sprites as Lil Jay, however I want to go thru them and make changes where I think it's needed. I will also attempt to create two additional sprites (Chewing and Sticking out the tongue), hopefully will I be able to create them and they look and behave the way I intend.
Hand Sprites - I will need to create several hand sprites for Olivia. I updated Lil Jay's from G1 to G2, but it's missing the proper sprites for the body rotation. I will also be adding the Grip Sprites I had on Lil Jay. Those special grip sprites will only show in certain views but if you have purchased the custom hands in the past, you will understand how they work. Custom Hands and Grip
Masking & Render Style - I don't do these two until I have made all corrections with my character because I don't like to go back and reapply everything. However the process should not take long to complete.
Default Pose, Walk & Run Cycle- I will create a custom Pose for Olivia and make sure her basic walk and run cycles have her body sprites in the correct order.
Prop- Olivia is wearing a Rain Coat outfit, it's only natural for me to have an umbrella prop go with this Character. I will more likely create 3 to 4 Umbrella sprites. ( Umbrella open, close, top view and bottom view.)
Final Over all Testing - I like to run a final test on the character and apply as many body and facial motion as possible and compare them to the default character to ensure my product is working as design and to minimize the chances of having to update my product and release an update in the future.
Promo Pics and Video - I will need to created Promo Pic and Video for the MarketPlace and Content Store. For those who are interested in getting the Free Front View of Olivia, it will not be released until a month after G2 Character Release.
