The making of Tabatha Veazie – Animated 2D portrait – part 5

The last two days have been spent doing the mouth, setting the Y motion for the head and finally polishing everything.

Previous parts: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4

Tabatha is pretty much completed! Aside from a few extra features like different hair and her hat that I will be adding later.

Here is how the teeth look underneath the mouth! Thank god people have lips.

You can really see how all the work pays off now. With the various motions you set up you can create pretty much any expression you want!

These are some expressions to test the various extremes she can emote in. Some may be a bit out of character, but it’s so fun to see the various facial expressions you can make her do that it’s sometimes hard to stop!

You can test your model with mouse tracking in Live2D’s model viewer.
I’m quite pleased with how she came out! 

Thanks again for all the interest and I hope you will look forward to seeing Tabatha in action in our future trailers and finally the game! We’ll be posting more blogs like these in the future, the next ones will be about the background and the story of Herald. Look out for these in the coming weeks!
