Expressive Elements

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 Under: Tutorials
Hey all!


(Praise GOD!! This one was so much work and got done so fast! Wow!)

As you can clearly see, haha, there is a new tutorial! Like the thumbnail suggests, I get to show you 9 expressive elements found in anime today that really does set it apart.

For a short while (say a few weeks), I've increasingly felt a strong desire to do a tutorial, but nothing on the list GOD gave me, really stood out. Until this particular video list came about. I knew that I knew, this was the next video and I am so thankful! When GOD commands, HE delivers! There were a few hurdles to get through to get these working in 3D space (as you'll see from the methods), but every time HE came through with the answer. JESUS is always the answer!

Even on recording, I felt like GOD wanted me to add practical finished examples of these elements, but also that I had to use specific characters to do it. It took around 3 hours to pose and adjust for all 9 elements, but definitely worth it! Anger was the hardest, since the face pulls kinda strange, hahaha. Needs fixing and yes it is a Make Human base! haha. Check out Make Human here:

(I used the older version, 1.0.2)

Also, check out this blog post for more on this style of character with Make Human:

(Also used the older version, 1.0.2, unless otherwise stated)

Of course, you can check out Blender too:

I cover the following expressive elements:
- Sweat droplet (awkwardness, surprise, etc)
- Anger vein
- Purple-blue forehead
- Blushing
- Defensive spots with sweat droplet
- Tear streams
- Relief breath
- Nose bubble
- Shocked and defensive yellow exclamations

And most importantly, the biggest thanx to GOD for helping me with this. Without HIM, none of this would be possible and I really want this to make an impact for CHRIST, seriously! :D

Do you know JESUS yet? GOD is reaching out to you through these tutorials. HE loves you more than you can imagine and wants you to know HIM. Not because HE's lonely, but because HE loves you and paid a heavy price to enable you to go to Heaven, where HE is. See, we all have sinned in some way shape or form. That makes us guilty before GOD. If you have ever said that you hated someone, in GOD's standard, you have committed murder (James 4). If you've ever looked on a person with lustful thinking, you've already committed fornication with them in your heart and you are then guilty of sexual impurity. If you were to face GOD on judgement day, saying: "I was a good person" will be a void argument, just like it would be before a human judge. GOD knew that we would have to pay that penalty and that we could not pay it, even if we tried, but sent JESUS to pay the price for us. Your sins were put on HIM and the forgiveness that is there for you was by no means cheap - the cross was not padded and comfortable, neither was the death.
But, HE was raised up on the third day (after being crucified) and finished the work so that we may enter through HIM paying the penalty we were supposed to pay, but it is only valid for you, if you accept it and live for HIM.
If that is you today, please, follow this prayer:
"JESUS, I believe that YOU are real and I believe YOU died for me and was raised on the third day for me. Please forgive me for my many sins. I make YOU the LORD of my life, full time and to fill me with YOUR HOLY SPIRIT. Teach me how to live for YOU, help me become what YOU have made me to be, in JESUS' Name! Amen!"

Have a great one and GOD bless you!

Thank YOU!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21

"Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." Proverbs 30:6
