LN2 Concept by ShaneNewville LN2 Concept by ShaneNewville
What may be in store. Right now I'm in the idea state. Also since these characters are now fully functional in Poser, I'm creating as many actions/animations for them as possible. That way my library will be built up and ready for sequencing. I've also been thinking I'm gonna need to go back and do some remodeling of the old ninja characters. The new guy is still lo-poly, but is miles ahead of them in the looks department. I've still got a lot to learn, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

how many times would you sub divide the surface of these low poly characters?

They are low poly as heck. I just used smooth poly instead of hard edges. That did the trick.

It's different for different software. I modeled the characters in Blender. In order to make it smooth you have to selecter the object or vertices and then click 'Smooth' on the toolbar. That is the one that shows up on the left side when you press T. I guess the more proper name for this is "Smooth Shading". The geometry does not change. It is only a change to how the shader acts. There might be a way to do it in Poser but I'm not sure how. If you use smooth shading on the model when you create it, then export the OBJ to be imported in to Poser, it seems to keep the smooth look.

Poser is not necessarily better for animation unless it fits your needs and helps you tell your story better. It has potential to let you create some cool stuff. You can do a lot more in Blender or Maya. But people get sucked into a black hole with those huge programs with thousands of features. Because Poser is so limited you have specific things to focus on. Again, it really depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
