I have looked at all the entries that have been made, and I see that there are many excellent achievements.
That said, I decided to add my own twist to this contest.
I made something simple using only the resources offered by character creator and iClone.
A man on a stage telling a funny story. (at least, I hope it will be funny)
I wanted the character to be a bit chubby and friendly so I went with the "heavy male" morph.
In Character creator I transformed it until I got a result that I was satisfied with.
I converted him in CC3+ and from the "Beard and Brows builder" pack I added hair and a beard.
Now I just have to dress him up..
To give the voice to my character I used "Acculips".
The manipulation was easy, I just had to open the audio file in Acculips and generate the text from the audio file.
In the area of the generated text some words were not recognised (certainly because of the Scottish accent)
I corrected the unrecognised words and then clicked on "Align" and "Apply".
I finally added some movements and used "Face keys" for the expressions.
the rendering was done with the native iClone renderer
and here is the final result
