Last week we announced the Settlers project, and it's now time to deliver the first character: Lunte! A promised, here on Blender Cloud you will find a very complete account on the creation of this character (Julien has been recording pretty much every step of the modeling process, in real-time) from concept to final animation.
While the model was being finalized, rigged by Demeter and shaded by Simon, Pablico started testing it out with a simple walkcycle.
After some feedback, the walkcycle was dropped into a test scene and shared with the world!
You can download the rig here (it's v1, so there might still be some fixes) and start creating your animation, we would love to see them!
In the meantime, Vivien created a new environment concept, where Pablico will create a new animation, next week.
Also, the team participated in a Blender Today episode and shared some of the making-of process, and answered questions.
On behalf of the team, thank you for all the positive comments and reaction, here and on social media. We look forward to sharing more and more!
