Adventures in Pose Making

14 Feb

I decided to take a look at MrsOogieBoogie’s pose tutorial she was so kind enough to put together, to see if I could, or would, even be interested in making my own poses. Like I need something else to do… *slaps self*

All kidding aside, however, I downloaded Blender and tried it, and other than a few kinks in the system, I managed to successfully make my own pose. O_O I only did one, and I picked something simple so that I could get a feel of how to position things. Today was the defining moment though, would it show up in my game… and it did! I’m pretty happy with myself right now.


I used this picture of Christian Bale I had laying around as inspiration for the pose. He’s standing pretty simple, yet complicated enough that I’d have to pay attention to small details in my pose making, which was what I was using the pose tutorial to help me with.

Christian Bale



Naturally, I used my Christian Bale Sim to model this in the game. LOL. It ends up that I didn’t turn his head in the pose as much as he is in the picture above, but everything else came out just the way I wanted. I’m calling it a win. XD



Honestly, it’s his shoulders in this pose that I was really trying to get, how his right shoulder is back a little further than his left one. I think I captured it pretty well.

    That’s a good start! I just learned myself a couple of months ago. I’ve already have a few poses I’ve uploaded to my Simblr. Once you start messing around with it more and more, you’ll really get the hang it before you know it. πŸ˜‰

      Hey! Thanks so much. πŸ™‚ I found the actual pose making to be pretty easy, it was getting used to Blender being an asshole that gave me the most trouble. ROFL.

        Oh god, I know what you mean. Sometimes I just want to punch whoever created Blender in their face, LOL.

    LMAO, yes. I kept losing my rig when I pushed things as simple as 3, to change the view. One time I found that the rig had somehow turned upside down and that’s why I couldn’t find it. Then, and this is my favorite one, I pushed 6 to change the view, and my rig. completely. disappeared. I had to start over because nothing I did was making it come back. Saving was hard too, I didn’t know that I had to click an additional button to get it to actually save. *sighs loudly*

    He actually looks like Christian Bale and I don’t even know who that is lol! You did a good job and I actually learned some new things while reading this πŸ™‚

    As far as Blender being an asshole..Perhaps you might want to try hitting that nubby part of your mouse to change angles and if you hit the nubby part of the mouse while holding shift on the keyboard you can move around a different way too…It’s hard to explain lol but yeah. And by the nubby part I mean the scroll thingy that rolls πŸ™‚

      LOL, thank you. πŸ™‚ Christian is a movie star and my favorite actor.
      Wow, cool, haha, I’m glad it helped.
      Ooh thank you for that tip, hehe, that will come in handy when I need to view my rig. Don’t worry you made sense. XD *hugs*
