Ah, a little change for the better. Really, it's not much how it currently stands, but it will stay as other improvements are made. What exactly is improved? The skin is slightly better. You may have remembered the ugly model that this is based on in Scenes 3 and 4. The first major improvement I wanted to make was the folds. You might remember that the folds looked all wrong. The elbows had folds that were wide and colored badly. The front of the knees had two folds that were supposed to look like something. So for the elbows, I just made the fold thinner. It makes a small difference and makes the arms look a bit more round at certain angles. For the knee, I deleted the upper fold and made the lower fold more curvy to look like the knee is pressing into the cloth and making a dent. This is often seen in spandex or tight jeans. That's kinda what Jav is wearing, but his are made of a super-cloth that doesn't get dirty or wrinkle and is very light and tough and has a lot of torsion (ie. silk). Anyway, I tried to make it look right. So then I added the shoes texture. It's pretty important to have shoes. I added shoelaces even though I think they'll be obsolete by 2014. These are advanced shoelaces that don't need tying. Pulling one lace makes a perfect solid form around the foot. Then there's the hair. I tried to do a gradient on it, but it just looks like a solid fill. Duh, the lighting system makes a gradient, so a double gradient looks like a single gradient-- thus it looks like it's lit slightly differently. But that's okay. I learned a bit about my fifth favorite program, LithUnWrap. The cylindrical UV map works well on the kind of hair that I do.

Tomorrow I have two physics midterms. I've already written up notes and I'm pumped and ready to go. I have another two midterms next Wednesday and Friday. That should be fun. I'm going to show those professors what I'm made of. After finishing my notes today, I said aloud, "I am a Physics Bear!" and I let out a roar. Hehehe. Am I psyching myself out? Impossible, since I'm a physics weasel. I am going to do well in all of my classes and my only worry will be next quarter when I'm taking 24 credits. Making Of JF might have to take a break if I'm taking that many classes. It sounds obscene. Perhaps if I take two art classes, each day's class will become Making Of JF.
