|Developer Spotlight: Lisa Scragg - Female 3D Specialist|
My name is Lisa Scragg, I live
small town about an hours drive from Melbourne, Victorias
State capital in Australia.
The magazine provided links to Renderosity, an online art
community, and I discovered a whole world of Digital Art that
was showcased in various galleries. It was like falling down
Alice's rabbit hole, I first bought Poser and I still enjoy
making pictures with it.
Chance to meet iClone Early in 2006, Reallusion sponsored an animation contest at Renderosity, I down-loaded the Trial of iClone and despite not having made any animation before, I managed to place Third, winning a copy of iClone, but I would have bought it anyway! I was very excited by how easy it was to create animated stories using Iclone.
I have always had an interest in 3D modeling and after 8 yrs of embroidery I was ready to make a "career change", I had been saving and was about to buy Light-wave, but I borrowed the extra money to purchase 3DMax so I could make Characters for iClone. I could see the potential for iClone becoming very popular.
CCD Program and Ideas for works
Then, I enrolled in the CCD program, and read all the guides available from the developer centre, I still refer to them as it is important to have the correct number of vertices and all the parts named correctly for the characters to import properly into iClone. Much trial and error later, I made several pairs of shoes.
Inspiration comes from a lot of places, the Game Myst got me interested in how 3dmodels were used in games, and it has been at the back of my mind for years that it would be interesting to produce models, and now iClone has given me the opportunity.
My first full character was a robot. The original robot design
had problems when the different iClone body shapes were applied
to, the arms flew off in all directions! Time to re-think
the joints, I tried to make the joints believable and my interest
in how machines work helped me here.
In addition, reference is almost a must. Much to his amusement,
my Chiropractor lent me a 1/2 size skeleton while I was modeling
