Read my excuses
Now look, this is just a TEST! There are lots of things that make it look a bit naff, the most important being that she has no rendering on her whatsoever. In the final she'll have 2 layers of shadow, dark and not so dark, and a highlight, all blended in (like the well rendered scenes in Aladdin)
Also, this 3D model has NO TEXTURE, NO BUMP MAP
And I made it with NO MODEL SHEET which means it didn't match at all (you may notice the hips don't match very well). Also I made a very nice model, but I closed Maya by accident and didn't save it, so I did this one rather quickly...it's not very good.
But anyway, it's just a test to see if it can be done..(it can), next we'll talk about if it should be done.
For those wondering why I'm considering it...from a story standpoint it makes sense in my head...these characters can't change medium from mere "surgery" but maybe a hand drawn character could get a CG dress if there was nothing else to improve on...bringing in new techniques on top of old ones...in this mixed media universe I think it'll make sense. Anyway that's what I think. Over to y'all...
