This entry will be of Hotei, aka the Laughing Buddha. I'm modeling him based on a 3D model/scan I purchased a few years ago.

1) I started out by exporting the CC3 Plus Base Model from Character Creator using Export > OBJ > Nude Character in Bind Pose.

2) I imported the model into Blender using these settings:

3) I set up a Split Screen by dragging the top right corner and creating another window. I imported the reference STL and offset him (moved him to the right) in the second window.

4) I set up a couple Shape Keys (similar to layers which stores vertex positions) and I sculpted a rough resemblance using the Sculpt Tools in Blender.

5) The shape of the reference head did not quite suit me, so I changed it a bit.

6) I exported with these settings:

7) I imported the OBJ and the OBJKey into Character Creator's Morph Slider Editor, creating a morph for both Body and Teeth.

8) I dialed in the character using the Morph Sliders I set up, then set up his skin using SkinGen.

The next stages, the clothing, will be difficult if I can even accomplish it. I may have to go with a substantially different design.

I decided to turn this into more of a stylized character. The process for doing this is basically trial and error based on previous experience. I did some very basic texturing to achieve a toonish look.

I modified a few elements, such as the robe, and attempted to add physics. I'm still working on the physics. There's some significant clipping. I also modified the face and head shape a bit, as well as re-textured the character. You can also see a preliminary animation at:

I created a variant of this design for Daikokuten, a similar but markedly different figure.

I just wanted to post the reference images I used as I transformed the project from 'Laughing Buddha' to 'Daikokuten'.

And also some of the final images I used for my submission.https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/9f4ee1dc-1f0d-4f0f-b790-9cec.jpghttps://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/faad2de2-5f8f-4caf-ba6b-5f47.jpg
