Another superb character - I particularly like how you simplify the facial features to make them more toon like, would you say that most of this simplifying is done externally or within CC itself?
By mtakerkart - 5 Years Ago
Love it Toko! Really!! 
By toonarama - 5 Years Ago
Forgot to mention what I like the best and that is that all your characters ooze personality and have a really appealing quality to them.
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi toonarama, Hi mtakerkart. Thanks again for you comments - appreciate it a lot and it pushes me to go onWink. The main character work is done in Sculptris and Carrara at the moment, especially to refine and smooth the mesh. CC has it limits but it's great that the workflow with other programs is that easy. I think it will also be improved in the future.

Here is another CC Toon character - a little girl. I´m also 
working on others, so watch out for moreSmile.

Great characters. Is there a way to buy them anywhere?

Definitely - the characters will be available for purchase (soon), but I need to wait for the next major patch for CC to fix some issues that occur at the moment.Wink I just want provide the best user experience. So please stay tuned and I will keep you updated.

As each little kiddie gang needs a chubby fellow I´ve created this new CC character. He may not be the fastest, but he is a loyal and warm-hearted friend - simply a true buddyBigGrin. Enjoy!

More absolutely wonderful characters - I see a bit of influence from Laika here possibly and all the better for it if there is. Keep up the inspirational work!
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi toonarama. You have a good eyeSmile and you are absolutely right that I also used the gorgeous characters from Laika's ParaNorman as an inspiration for these characters. It´s always good to learn from the bestWink.

Here is another stylized CC Girl. Hope you like her. I wish everyone a great Advent weekend and see you around! Cheers.

I'm back - finallyBigGrin.

Thanks izolafilms - I'm planning to have the animal pack ready by the end of March. I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything works as I've plannedSmile.

But before I will go back working on the animals, I thought it was time to create a human character again. I found the time to watch "Spectre" last weekend and I really like it (finally a Bond movie that can compete with "Casino Royale"Wink), so I liked the idea of having a semi-stylized Hero character and used Daniel Craig/James Bond as an inspiration. I really like the result - hope you tooBigGrin.

Hi all,

i bought the stylized character pack. Unfortunately the sliders do not appear in the software. where and how do i find them?
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Everybody.

@doubledutch: Thanks again for your positive feedbackSmile. The new textures will be ready soon.

@ijrivero.live: Thanks for your suggestion. I haven't planned an Anime Style Character Pack yet, but will think it over again. Can't promise anything, but maybe I can come up with something later this year (around 4th quarter)

@sbaerman: Thanks for the information. Please contact RL Support and tell them about your problem, so that they have all information and can investigate further. I'm really sorry and hope you will be able to work with the Morph Sliders soon!

An additional tip: If you installed the pack while CC was running, please close the application and restart. It may help.
By ToKoMotion - 3 Years Ago
Hi Everyone and Welcome in 2017Smile.

I think it's time for the first update of the year and to show some previews for my upcoming CC character morphs. I thought the HERO Morphs would need some good OPPONENTS - so here they are:

The OGRE

Two more character morphs are almost ready and the pack should hit the store next week.

See here who just arrived to join the group:

Here is the last one of this first group of creature characters:

The INFERNAL CYCLOPS
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/1e44a0da-da0d-41c4-8fc6-4fd2.png

Even a Troll can't stand against this beast!

Horns are taken from the "Legend of the Dragon" pack.
I will also include additional morphs for the teeth and claws to make him more beastly.

Enjoy!
By Snarp Farkle - 3 Years Ago
He's cool ToKoMotion, reminds me of my old boss we used to call Brutis! Laugh
By ToKoMotion - 3 Years Ago
HaHa! I hope you liked to work for him anyway. Brutis would have been a nice name for this character as well. Will keep it on my names list for future useBigGrin
By ToKoMotion - 3 Years Ago
Hi Everyone.

As promised earlier the CC Creature Morphs arrived in the Content Store today. Now you can create Fantasy and Sci-Fi monsters in CC with ease. Looking forward to see your creations!

Here is a little appetizer for you - Cyclops in Sketchfab (his inofficial name is Brutis - thanks to SnarpWink)



Special thanks to Marc for pointing out the Sketchfab use for character presentation. My other characters will follow soon!

Have fun!


By mtakerkart - 3 Years Ago
Bought all of them Toko Smile  Can't wait to play with the CC beta 2 !
What about this one?




Perfect the use of sketchfab by the way !

By ToKoMotion - 3 Years Ago
Great, I really appreciate your ongoing support. It seems you're not giving up till I release this little blue guy. Well, I promise he will be part of a pack that is coming in February. The character accessories and the eyes section need a bit more work. Thanks a lot for your patienceBigGrin.
By toonarama - 5 Years Ago
well I think the people behind Laika would be very impressed with how you've captured the essence of their clay characters digitally. I am using them as my inspiration too except I'm going for some of the nastier characters, and my results are nowhere near as good as yours!
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Just keep moving on with your characters and the they will improve - practice makes perfectWink.

Here is a little CC Mowgli. EnjoySmile!

... Where are you getting the hair from?

The hair is created by combining 2 RL props. The hair base/scalp is from Flowing Hair Elements Vol.1 and for the pigtails I used the Rat Tail from G5 Next Gen for Male. Just moved along till it fitted and adjusted the colour. That´s it.Smile

I'm having a problem with your Tom character that maybe you can help me fix, he seems to float above the floor and I can't find a way to get him grounded. Ermm


Judy sets on the floor just fine in iClone and CC with or without shoes but Tom does not.  There's no way to correct this in 3DX either.

Hi Marc. Haha, that looks cool. Hope you'll have fun with the characters and I'm looking forward to see your creationsBigGrin.

Hi Snarp. Thanks a lot for your feedback. I have checked this and it's true that Tom and Leo aren't grounded correctly. Strange I didn't realized it before. So, I have a bad and a good news for youWink.
The bad news is that I can't easily fix this at the moment and as you already mentioned there is no way to get rid of it via 3DXchange right nowSad ... but ...
The good news is (as I heard from my RL Confidential InformantCool) that CC1.5 will have a new feature that allow to edit the contact settings and you can fix this really easily with it. Now the only problem is that we have to wait a little bit for the release, but I hope you can live with it till then. Apologize for any inconveniences caused.

Thanks again for your post and I will keep an extra eye on this in the future. (I will also copy+paste your post to the Stylized Kids & Teens Thread in the Content Developer Forum)

Hi Toonarama, Hi VirtualMedia,

thanks for your comments. I will try to share as much tips as possible - just let me know what is the most interesting for you.

Here is a stylized kid character. It´s not that easy to create kids. Head was adjusted in Sculptris and I think the body still needs slight adjustments as well.

By mtakerkart - 5 Years Ago
Seriously Toko , your characters are the best marketing product of Reallusion CC !!! ;-)

Yes Kid is not easy with CC not because of proportions but the face look like older that it must be....
I would like to see (if you want of course ;-) the old man process including the Sculptris , because when I  enable simmetry sculpting , it change the number of polygon...

Bravo!!

To avoid adding of polygons in Sculptris you need  to turn off "Beautify/Relax mesh" and "Smooth subdivide" in Options. Please also make sure to turn off "Detail" by pressing "Q"-button on your keyboard.

Thank you Toko for your tip. But even that the symmetri change something wich make issue when replace in 3dxchange...

Hi JC,

the boots are the Standard High Heels that come with CC. I just added the "Leg Warmers" from RL´s "G3 CLONECLOTH NEW LOOK" pack in iClone which you can find in the store. The snake is from RL´s "ANIMAL WORLD Vol.5" pack. At the moment I just work with assets that can be purchased from the Store or Marketplace.

I think as soon as the CC Pipeline version is released I will try to create own stuff - especially CC cloth related items. So I keep my fingers crossed that we don´t have to wait too longWink.

Hi CaseClosed,

well, the "G3 LegWarmer" aren´t clothes but accessories like the headphones or the backpack of the Boy character above. You can simply attach all accessories to the different body parts of CC characters in iClone.

How long does it take you to create one of these characters via the CC?  I love the look of some of them, but I just don't think I have the patience nor the temperment to go back and forth so many times, and tweaking so many different morphs.  That's kinda why I'm not doing much with the CC to begin with, it's just so tedious...

How long does it take you to create one of these characters via the CC? ...


Hi Wizaerd,

I forgot to mention that I always use Sculptris and/or Carrara to adjust and manipulate the shapes.

First I create the basic shape in CC by going forth and back to iClone 4-6 times. Then I refine everything in Sculptris - go back to iClone and have a closer look, back to Sculptris to refine more and so on. All in all the the Old Guy from today took me around 4 hours to finish. Not bad for a fully rigged and ready to animate characterWink.

By Rampa - 5 Years Ago
These are pretty great TokoMotion! Wink

The ability to "reset" to a new base by sending to iClone and sending back is really powerful.

Every new software is tedious when you first learn it. My suggestion is to suffer through, because it will quickly become much easier.
It's like trying to play ice hockey. Put on the skates, go after the puck, and it won't take long before the moves become second nature and you don't have to think about it. 

With CC, I would first suggest trying to match a specific character or face. Match it as perfectly as you can. If something isn't right, go through the pains of figuring out how to make it right. That is how you learn. I believe this is one reason RL is having these contests, to get people to actually dive in and learn how to do it. 

Peace.
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi Rampa, thanks for your comment - yes, the possibility to "reset" is really great. 

Hi CaseClosed, well said, I just can agreeSmile.

Today I was just fixing some things on my CC "Jack Frost" - especially the head shape. I thought it would be nice to give it a try in Indigo and that´s the result. Pretty good, I think.Cool

Thanks a lot for all your feedback and ongoing support. Really appreciate all your positive comments and it pushes me forward to create more unique characters for youSmile!

I think there will be some nice characters in the middle age and younger age packs that will be perfect to be used as bad guys/villains. But the best thing is that all new packs will have separate Head and Body Morphs. This way you can combine different heads with different bodies and you will have much more possibilties to create the characters you want! 

I also wanted to post another old lady for you all. Hope you like it and have a great weekend everyone!Smile

Thanks again, JarrettSmile. At the moment I only use existing RL hair for the characters, so it is easy to change style and color. Maybe I will create some custom hair assets later - already have a lot on my listWink.

Before a short Christmas break I wanted to upload this cute CC Teen Girl.

With this in mind I wish all fans, forum members and RL users a Merry Christmas.
Of course a Merry Christmas goes also to the whole RL Team - you already delivered a great gift earlier this year with the release of CC. Thanks a lot and have some Happy Days.

Hi folks.

Time has passed and I think there is a need for a new WIP update. I'm already working on some new stylized characters and preparing male and female packages which will include different styles of character morphs - Heroes, Villains, Sexy ones or Grumpy Old ones. Additionally the new packages will be split in HEAD and BODY morphs, so that you will be able to combine different head shapes with different body shapes. I will keep you updated!Smile

Let me start showing this dude. He's not finished yet, but I think already worth to show.BigGrin

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/73b70d99-25ad-433c-a929-450f.png

Thank you very much for all your kind words! I really appreciate it and I'm very happy that you like the character again - perfect start to move onWink! And Marc - yes, thanks again for this nice hint.

I think I will also create some special clothes when CC1.5 is out. I already have some ideas, even if clothes creation will be a bit more challenging than creating the character morphsSmile. But I also have some ideas for hair. Let's see what I can come up with.

@sjonesdc
Great to hear that you like the Animal characters. Cool idea and I have planned to create another pack later this year that will make the "Animal Farm" more completeSmile.

Alright, and here is just a new preview for the Body Morph of the grumpy old dude. As I said before this is a separate morph and you will be able to combine others from the package or your own body morphs with the head. Have fun!

IF YES HOWCAN i DO IT

By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi test_17. Thanks a lot for your supportSmile. I haven't included a separate tongue morph/animation for Teddy, but you can use 3Dtest's Advanced Face Puppet Tool to create tongue animations. You only have to use the CC Base AFP Avatar provided by 3Dtest and then apply my character morphs on it in CC.

For more information please read this thread: 
https://forum.reallusion.com/FindPost296428.aspx and also visit 3Dtest's Youtube channel.

Here is a quick test I made using Teddy and 3Dtest's AFP Tool.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/rbe1dwz4fxeg4g7/bear_tongue_test01.gif?dl=0

You can also use 3DXchange to create customized tongue morphs/animation via the Expression Editor and save them as Custom Profiles. Like this one:

Hi there. It has been quiet here for a while, because I´m working on a clients project and some other things and haven't had the time to work with CC (unfortunately). But more stuff is in the pipeline and coming soonw00t.

Meanwhile, to clear my mind a bit, I played with iClone 6 and tried to improve render quality by trying out some things. I ended up with these results and think they look quite good. It's done with a simple 2-lights setup and IBL + AO and a bit tweaking here and thereWink.

No.1 (nice texture on the tree)

By rampart - 4 Years Ago
America is in the process of electing many new government officials.
Would you look into making some political stylized characters and clothing for political parody videos.
For sure we need the top 6 are:
Hillary Clinton - her wardrobe reminds people of Mao Zedong tunics frequently - she mostly wears pant suits, rarely a dress.
Bill Clinton - Bill usually in a suit
Donald Trump - Usually in a suit
Bernie Sanders - Usually in a suit
Barack Obama - Usually in a suit
Michelle Obama - woman's clothes - professional
...... Some additionals might include some TV interviewer characters 
Megyn Kelly = Fox News
Bill O"Reilly - Fox News
Don Lemon - CNN News
Lou Dobbs - Fox Business News
Chris Wallace - Fox News
Dana Perino - Fox News
Kimberly Guilfoyle - Fox News
Greg Gutfeld - Fox News
Brezinski - MSNBC
Rachel Maddow - MSNBC
------------- Other political characters might include the Pope, Putin, Soros, Cameron, Firage, some Secret Service types.
------ we can use your other fun characters along with the political characters to make some interesting political videos.
The political characters will  need a few different clothes, because this should be popular item and many videos will be shared using these characters.
The elections will be full on from now until November.  The characters will continue to have value even after the elections.  
Characters should not be totally absurb to the point their physical bodies, faces and clothing are ridiculous stupid or too extreme.
Viewers need to easily recognize the characters as possible. Prominent physical features should be emphasized but not too extreme.

Yes, we can use Crazy talk to develop the heads... IMO, they would be too realistic.
I am thinking more to cartoonish appearance.
This way viewers would immediately recognize as parody, make fun of, or use in other fun ways. 
It may be the message presented may be serious.
The message of the videos can be delivered as comedy even, if the message is cynical, satire, sarcastic or mockery.

Reallusion has released a Toonmaker pack with political characters, but they are not close enough to what the people look like for best appeal to viewers.

Thanks for your comment, but I have to disappoint you. This pic and all other stills are rendered with Indigo, no Realtime here. Sorry. Let's see what RL will offer regarding PBR by the end of the yearWink.

@rampart
Also Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I have to say that this is really a nice idea, but I have also to admit that caricatures of people are really hard to master - if you want to create really good onesWink. You have to pay a lot of attention to details to figure out what makes the respective person unique and will make the strongest effect in the caricature. There are not much artists out there who can handle this and I don't know if I'm able to do it, as I didn't tried it yet. Perhaps I will give it a try, but I will definitely not be able to create such a bunch of characters. Sorry. But maybe someone else will start creating some of the mentioned characters as it is a really good idea. So thanks again for your thoughtsSmile.

As promised I now focus on the creation of some old ladies that will be perfect companions for the old dudes. Here is the first one. She had no problems showing herself in underwear - hope that's OK with KelleytoonsWink

By Eric (RL) - 4 Years Ago
Hi Wires!

D'oh, looks like the video was released a little bit early. Stay tuned for the major CC 1.4 update and ToKoMotion's awesome content pack!

We'll lock the video for now~
By toonarama - 4 Years Ago
Looking forward to both of these - managed to get a quick peek before it disappeared and

The Tokomotion content pack included 10 of his "stylised characters" but no indication of price.

A small selection of "stylisation sliders" were also demonstrated  which I am guessing will be part of CC 1.4 as mentioned by Eric.

Pity it's been taken down. One thing that impressed me was when they showed how morphs can now be baked inside of CC for height/width adjustment and then increasing/decreasing the height/width again without having to roundtrip through iClone every time.

I think it is hard to create such kind of eyes in CC at the moment. I already gave all my current characters bigger eyes than the default ones, but at a certain point they will look bad and become too edgy. Also the pupils in the pic are really small compared to the rest of the eye - when I try to give CC characters smaller pupils I never got satisfying results as they all looked a bit maniacBigGrin. I'm planning to create some more male and female characters in the near future and will try to push the limits regarding the eye size a bit more. Let's see what I can come up with.

TM, definitely got the custom characters down solid, but I'm not sure that IC's current facial animation tools could work with eyes that large. If you wanted to do stills the warp tool among others in PS could get you some extreme toon like distortions.

There is also another one showing the new features in CC 1.4:




By mrmdesign - 4 Years Ago
These features look great. As does your content pack Tokomotion!
I am interested in seeing what price they sell it for. I am sure you will do really well out of this.

Will you allow an export license for these?

I am very, very pleased with the export to obj feature of this update. This will save me so much time!
I have been sending to iclone Pro then sending to 3dxchange pipeline, then exporting the obj to zbrush, then texturing in 3d Coat then bringing back to iclone via 3dxchange, then sending back to CC....
This is fantastic! When do we get it?

Still excited about the release of CC 1.4 and my first character pack. RL did a fantastic job with it. Thanks a lot again.Smile

You may already have seen this guy on one of the promo webpages, but I thought it would be nice to have some additional Indigo renders of him. So here they areSmile:

He isn't finished yet as I want to work again on his hands and feet and I think a tail would be nice as well.
By mrmdesign - 4 Years Ago
Ha ha!
This guy is great. I love that face!

I am thinking of releasing a few of my own characters but yours are so good I feel a bit intimidated.
I thought animal morphs could be a good idea too but you beat me to it. ;-)

I may release Gil and his family from the Halloween competition after a bit of work and a few accessories.

Do you mainly use 3D Coat and Sculptris for your characters? The tweak room and paint room do work really well but I feel like I have a bit more control in Zbrush.

By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Thank you very much, Marc - glad you like himBigGrin. You should definitely release your characters - Gil is really great. And you should also work on animal characters as it is always good to have a huge variety of different designs. I think Dicho started the animal morphs for CC and his creations look really good, too. 

I use Sculptris and Carrara for modeling. Sculptris is great for organic modeling while Carrara is perfect
 when it comes to manipulate only single vertices and to have more control over the mesh. 3DCoat is a fantastic tool for texturing as it is easy to use. I haven't modeled with 3DCoat yet, but this is mainly because of my settled habits regarding Sculptris/CarraraSmile.

Well, everyone who is interested: I have created a short beginners tutorial on how to fix some minor issues with CC cloth. It's just about the basic workflow, but you can adapt it to the general modeling process. I think I will also create some more videos that focus on detailed modeling work.

 
By mrmdesign - 4 Years Ago
That's really helpful Tokomotion and very kind of you to share information like this.
I really wish you the best of luck with your packs. I hope it makes you enough money to keep on creating more.

I also have Cararra but tend to use Blender as my default app for hard surface stuff and vertex / poly manipulation. It took years to get to grips with it but I am pretty fast now and Cycles is great for rendering. The stalled development of Carrara really put me off. Its a massive shame as Carrara was the first app I ever used for 3d modelling (version 2 maybe?) and I thought Hexagon was fantastic. I don't know why Daz doesn't just sell Carrara to a company like Reallusion.

I really should make more use of Zbrush. It was pretty expensive and there is so much that can be done with it. I must get to grips with my fibermesh to low poly hair workflow as I am sure it will speed things up when creating different hairstyles and facial hair.

I know what you mean about settled habits. I also have the whole Allegorithmic suite but barely use it even though I know how amazing it is. I am getting better with Zbrush but I just feel 'at home' with 3D Coat and there are only so many hours in the day! :-)
By Britlish - 4 Years Ago
I just bought the pack and it's full of great characters. Nice work.
I found one issue with the Alethia character. She's wearing leg warmers and these are being flagged as trial items from the marketplace. Thus she cannot be exported to iClone.
Is there a way round this?

By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Britlish. Thanks for your message. Great to hear you like the pack.

Regarding the issue you described: the accessories that some of the characters are wearing can be purchased separately. If you don't want to buy them simply delete them from the scene tree and the character can be exported to iClone then. I just wanted to show how you can customize the character by adding some additional props. Hope that helps.  
By Sen - 4 Years Ago
Hi ToKoMotion , 

Your characters are impressive , very good job . 
By Britlish - 4 Years Ago
Hi ToKoMotion,
Thanks for the information regarding the leggings. I bought them from the store, so problem solved.
I'll be interested to see what characters you come up with in the future. I particularly like the animal types, as they would be great for teaching English to children.
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Sen. Thanks a lot - appreciate your kind wordsSmile.

@Britlish: Perfect! That's a cool ideaCool. I'm preparing some more animal characters, so stay tuned.

BTW, I didn't showed my refined Mr. Froggy yet. So let me catch up on it now:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/wu7l8ra584r4e5n/tokomo_cc_mrfrog_01.gif?dl=0

I'm sorry, but I was too lazy to create a new animation for him, so I reused the one from Papa BearBigGrin. But that's the cool thing in iClone - create it once and use it forever on every characterWink. 
By Britlish - 4 Years Ago
Mr Froggy would be great for teaching, as would Papa Bear. Maybe Pricilla Pig and other such characters would also make a great character pack, too. I look forward to seeing your future work.
By doubledutch - 4 Years Ago
There is now a big package. Looks great.
Are there gonna be seperate items in the marketplace?
By animatom - 4 Years Ago
ToKoMotion, with all this you are bringing iClone to another level. And my work also. Thanks, master.
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi doubledutch. Thanks for your message. Unfortunately I don't have any information if RL will upload single characters of the pack to the Marketplace. It's down to RL to decide. Sorry.

But I will start uploading some of my other creations to the Marketplace, soon. I will let you know asap.Smile.

Hello Everybody.BigGrin

If you purchased the Stylized Starter Pack you may have noticed that the character "DAVOS" only comes with his devlish claws. If you wish to apply "normal" nails to him simply go to my Marketplace Store and download this newly created Partial Body Morph. Of course it's free!

ToKoMotion Marketplace Store 

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/61245f97-7174-4331-92a9-1703.png

As this whole process of uploading Morphs to the Marketplace is totally new to me, please let me know if you face any problems installing or using the morphs. I will try to provide updates asap then. Thanks and enjoy.
By wires - 4 Years Ago

Hi Gerry. Hi Britlish. Thanks a lot for your feedback. Good to know that it works - so I'm ready to upload more!Wink
By rampart - 4 Years Ago
Tokomotion...

I really appreciate your characters in the stylized characters pack.

In the future you should refrain (not use)  DRM content from other packs.
The RL party pack isn't a very appealing pack for many of us.
The little old man character had trial mark when I loaded it.
Logic dictates... I bought your pack, so something on the character I did not own.
The clothes, were base content so I guessed hair
 Voila the trial mark went away when I deleted the DRM hair.

If you release additional content items, please think about this.,
If you must use DRM content from others - please let us know beforehand. (LOUDLY)

This may have been mentioned before.  I don't have time to read the entire thread.

OR ~ What I did... In Iclone, I loaded a character with the trial items, then in the scene tab, select the trial items and press the delete key, then I saved the avatar in my custom folder with the same name as the template one, selected it, right clicked to 'find file' so it would open the folder.  Then I selected the avatar in the templates tab, right clicked to 'find file' to open that folder as well, then moved and copied over the custom avatar and selected to overwrite the original, now I don't see the hideous watermarks every time I want to load the avatar. Wink
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Snarp Farkle. That's a good workaround. Thanks for posting.

Hi rampart. Thank you very much for your feedback. I wasn't fully involved in the final assembly of the package, but I will keep this in mind for future releases. I will also discuss this point together with the guys from RL, but believe me they always aim to prepare the content packs the best way and only want to satisfy us, their users. This whole morphing process is really new to everyone, so there are some points in the beginning that will be improved in the future.Smile

That said I want to let you know that I'm still hardly working on some possible new releases and wanted to show a quick WIP. So this tiny CC guy "arrived" todaySmile. Enjoy.

Hi. Thanks to everyone for your feedback. I really appreciate all your kind words. Haven´t been here for a while, but still working on new stuff.

There are some more characters in the pipeline but I was currently focussing on making custom cloths out of the Base and Essential pack assets. So here is a quick preview on what I got so far: A new pair of sneakers and a jacket.

Hi. Just wanted to post a quick WIP preview:

I saw a nice concept-art of a Troll today and tried to re-create it in CC. Works well, but still needs some detailed work on the skin texture, cloths and additional accessories. Will post the final version, soon. Enjoy!

Hi rampa, mtakerkart, mark and CasedClosed. Thanks a lot again for your kind words. I´m really glad you all like it. There is a lot more coming - so stay tunedWink

@mtakerkart:
No, it´s not only done with CC. I prepare the basic shapes in CC first (like leg and arm length, body size, facial look etc.) and then move on refining everything in Sculptris and/or Carrara. As extreme morphs in CC will distort the mesh a lot and make the whole character look bad, it´s really necessary to work on the details in an external modeler. As this is a very time consuming and creative process I don´t think I can make a timelapse video of a whole character. But perhaps I will find the time to create a video showing the preparation of a body part. We´ll seeSmile.
By mtakerkart - 5 Years Ago
Thank you Tokomotion!. Your answer respond to my curiosity , don't worry for my request , it's ok. Yes that's my problem with extreme morph wich distord the texture...
I really d'ont know how to fix this. Do I have to rebuild a new UV or not...That is the question. I'm looking for the rest of your creation for sure ;-)
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
mtakerkart (10/25/2015)
... Yes that's my problem with extreme morph wich distord the texture... I really d'ont know how to fix this. Do I have to rebuild a new UV or not...


No, I don´t create new UVs. If you take care with the modeling/re-shaping/smoothing of the mesh the default UVs will work fine. Sometimes I have to go back and forth several times to fix small mesh areas but that´s much less efforts than to build new UVs.Whistling

By the way - here is the final version of the Troll, this time rendered in Indigo. Cheers.

I have the same problem - can´t import the teeth mesh after re-modeling. Seems to be kind of a bug. So I used the "Horns" accessories from the MonsterWorkshop package to create the teeth. Attached them to the jaw and it looked fineWink.

hello tokomotion and guys, i am a mudbox user and i get cc full essentials with the focus to be a developer for new cloths, and characters, now i see is not a problem sculp details inside mud using a triangulated base 
no problem , but i want use the same base for craft shirts gloves etc , but the feet is a really problem for me cause the fingers. how you do to model a new boot using the original base ? 


By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
That's good to know, BritlishSmile. So I will hurry up to get Mr. Mouse ready for release!

Next step on that track was to re-texture him and it's done now. I created the texture with 3D Coat - really easy to do, like it a lot! The Normal Maps look quite nice in this Indigo renders.

I have downloaded a free project for test. Looks very good!!
When i give the character a standard boot the feets scale to very big (not fit to the small feets).
Clothing not.
Is that because i don`t own the slidermorph or is this with the slider also the case?
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi doubledutch.

Thanks for your feedback. That seems to be an old bug and it's chasing meSmile. Try to increase the ARM LENGTH Slider before you apply the shoes - that should solve the problems. After you have applied the shoes you can bring back the arm length to its original size. Hope that helps.

I'm currently preparing some Quicktip videos for the character morphs also regarding clothing. Will also have a look on this issue again. Thanks for letting me know.

@Kellytoons: The "conform" options doesn't really work on shoes. But thanks for the hint.Smile

I've tested it with Linus and don't have an issue. Well, the shoes will be a bit bigger than the feet, but I guess this is some kind of technical behaviour at the moment.

Hi Marc.
You keep up the pressure - that's goodWink. I couldn't work on the Animals the last days as I have to finalize a clients project and also need to prepare the final Kids & Teens release. Sorry, but I will do my best to finish them asap.Smile

Hi Cape.
Yes, the Kids and Teens Packs will be also available in the Content Store, but I don't have an exact date yet. It will be March, but I don't know if it will be already the first half of the Month. I will keep you informed. 


And finally also a BIG SORRY to all current Kids & Teens Morph Marketplace purchasers - I promised the first update for the beginning of this week, but decided to add some more adjusted clothes to the projects. So, beside the Shoes I will also provide a shape-adjusted Default Shirt and Default Jeans (for the boys) and a shape-adjusted Default Dress (for the Girls) as I saw that there are some issues, especially with the collar.

Here is a quick preview for Linus and I hope to finalze and upload the other character projects by the end of today. You will receive an E-Mail from me as soon as it goes online. Thanks.

Looking wonderful, like always!

I`m still wondering how it`s possible to seperate head and body in sliders.
I have tried and tried, but no luck.


Same here doubledutch, whats more frustrating is to see that it's possible, but no clues given as to how.  I thought it had something to do with saving the head in iClone then exporting it as an obj from 3DX and using that when creating the head slider, but no luck yet. Doze

Hi doubledutch, Hi Snarp.

I have created the head morph on the Default Body first. Then saved this morph as a new Head Morph Slider. Afterwards I created the body morph and set the head morph back to the Default Head, so I`m able to save the body as a separate Body Morph Slider. 

I'm currently working on my Kids & Teens again, to separate the head and body morphs. As soon as I have finished it I will prepare a quick tutorial on this topic. Hope that helps for the moment.

In case you want inspirationals here are also some Design Ideas using the new morphs. Clothes are mainly costumized from the Essentials and Professional Pack but a BIG THANKS goes also to Delerna for his great Franciscan Friar and the Medieval Tunic.

Very cool Toko!!! But what about him:



And may you can use sketchfab to show your models ? Wink
I think with the upcoming PBR feature , sketchfab will be more advertising than youtube.
Of course it's a personal feeling Wink

By Delerna - 4 Years Ago
Wow, to have someone who creates this fantastic stuff call my content great.......hmmm i better be carefull or i wont be able to go home tonight cos i wont be able to get my head out the door.
Anyway, always look forward to anything you make. Havent done much in the way of video production since i started my store but wanting to get back into it again soon. At least some of the time anyway. I enjoy making clothes and characters in CC. Its a fantastic tool and lots of fun.....well, most of the time.
Anyway, Thanks for the encouragement you just gave me and you have made great use of what i have made
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Mark, Hi Marc, Hi Delerna.

Thanks a lot for your feedback - appreciate it a lot. You can be sure that these character morphs are just the beginning of a bunch of new packs that will hit the Content Store in the upcoming weeks. I have planned a lot of awesome stuffWink. The Toon Creatures are one of them, but I need a little bit more time to finish them all. 

Regarding Sketchfab: It's really funny that you mentioned it, Marc. I have made my first tests and want to showcase my characters there very soon. Just need a little bit more time to prepare everything. Will let you know as soon as it's readyBigGrin.

@Delerna: It was really a pleasure that I found your clothes - they perfectly fit my demands. I hope to see more stuff from you in the future. Thanks againSmile.

Here are also some more Design Ideas for the Hero Morphs in case you don't need Fantasy characters.

I love your proportions TokoMotion. You really know how to make an eye pleasing, pixar style figure. These character morphs are spot on. Where did that afro hair come from btw?
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi doubledutch. Hi mrmdesign. Great to hear that you like the character morphs, makes me really happyBigGrin. More to come soon!

The afro hair is from the Party Fun Pack - it renders really nice in Indigo, love it, tooSmile

hello tokomotion and guys, i am a mudbox user and i get cc full essentials with the focus to be a developer for new cloths, and characters, now i see is not a problem sculp details inside mud using a triangulated base 
no problem , but i want use the same base for craft shirts gloves etc , but the feet is a really problem for me cause the fingers. how you do to model a new boot using the original base ? 




he is using items and attaching them after he is finished for the most part from his accessories from iclone  
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi wildstar.
Thanks for your comment. At the moment it is not possible to create new cloths from scratch. To do this you have to wait for the Pipeline version. Sorry. But you can use the base cloths and the cloths from the Essential pack and adjust/re-shape in an external modeler. Hope that helpsSmile.

After I had to stop my work due to the break down of my old but beloved Logitech G5 mouse I finally found a replacement and already started working on a new CC character. This time it will be based on a game character I found on the web. Still have to do quite a lot, especially fine tuning the textures. As I don´t want to show too much at this stage here is just a quick Teaser rendering directly out of iClone 6. Stay tuned!BigGrin

Looking wonderful (as I would expect). Are you going to be selling any of your characters in the Marketplace?
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi toonarama. Well, I´m thinking about it, but need to prepare some more stuff before. So, unfortunately you still need to wait a bit - I want to make everything as perfect as possibleSmile

Today someone has been woken up here - hope you enjoy this little animationBigGrin. Cheers!

Incredible work ToKoMotion. You really have taken the Character Creator to the next level. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Smile

Really really nice.
Wow again. Love it.
By animagic - 5 Years Ago
ToKoMotion, thanks for showing what can be done with CC. I'm just starting and I enjoy working with it. I find that it also goes fairly quick compared to other methods. 

BTW, I use Argile 2 as external sculpting program. It does allow using symmetry without problems.
By ToKoMotion - 5 Years Ago
Hi Peter. Hi CaseClosed. Hi animagic. I´m really glad you like it. Thank you very much!Smile

Today I managed to upload my first item to the Marketplace. The sneakers are ready and waiting to pimp your CC characters. You can get them via FashionAlleys Theme Store:

Hi doubledutch. Hi Snarp Farkle. Thanks again for your feedbackBigGrin. Snarp, I don't really know why your Davos slider is coloured out. Strange thing, but I hope you can use Davos without limitationSmile. If not, I would suggest to contact RL support.

Well, I needed a break from my clients project and I thought it was really time to create a new character for the animal package. As I recently saw the trailers for "Zootopia" and "Sing" I loved the idea of adding a Piggy to the other characters. Hope you'll like itBigGrin

By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi doubledutch. Your solution is perfect. Thanks for sharingSmile.

I haven't posted something new for a long time, but the nice summer weather here motivates me to get out more often and reduces the available working time a bitWink  But I'm still working on new packages for CC (and this time not only Character Morphs). So, new stuff is coming soon!

Besides working on new things I always try to improve my existing packages. This time I wanted to increase the quality of the fur textures of my Stylized Animals a bit and have created this reference for Rusty here:

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/2ac87dd7-c9a8-4210-b63d-eb32.jpg

What do you think? IMO it looks a bit more detailed and more fluffy than the old texture. I will also adjust the texture for Teddy and Sammy and make them available for you then.

Here is also a quick Indigo Render comparision:

One question, there will be anime stylized characters from ToKoMotions in a future?

Thanks for your time Smile
By ToKoMotion - 4 Years Ago
Hi Everyone.

I wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year. Thanks for all your support in 2016! It makes me really happy that my creations became that popular in the last months. The year went by so fast, I even hadn't the time to create a new creating card. So I thought it would be a nice idea to reuse the one from last year.Wink

See ya all in 2017 with lots of new stuff! Thanks again and enjoy the time.
