Hi,
I`m just playing with metaballs inside the xsi character man. Inspired on Tim Borgmann`s work. Not finished yet.

I like it!!! :-bd
Could add some description how you did it?
Did you use the metaballs-setup found at motionblur.it
or is this already done with the new metaballs operator by "our very own" :- "Mootzoid"?
Or is there even some other method involved? :-\ ;)

Hi,
Metaballs are from motionblur.it (thanks to Michele Sandroni for that excellent tool).
I use the character included in softimage (XSI Man). Then i pose it in the way i like it.
I use a grid for emit particles and applied the metaballs in grid and paint option.
For the metabbals inside the man, invert the polygon´s normals of the character and use it as particles obstacles with actual shape collision.
And a vein node appy to the texture of the man.

Thanks for comments!
This community is great.
