Workflow of Character Building
 
I wanted to know the "right"? way/order to model, cloth, rig, animate a character.

i.e. Is it: Model character, make cloths/hair (and attach?), facial joints/blend shapes, textures, rigging/bind skin, paint weights, etc. I want to make sure I follow the right sequence to avoid deformations and also for efficiency.

Thanks, Chel3

Hello Chel3, I'm no pro by any means but I just recently watched a tutorial video from Autodesk and the instructor talks about the general "workflow" of character building.

Here's the link:

Although it is not a step-by-step tutorial, the instructor addresses some of the concerns you have throughout the video. Hope this helps.

Hi Orv510, I appreciate the video link, it has some good stuff in it. However, it didn't have any of the info I was looking for in modeling a character, rigging it and animating. I find most tutorials show the first part, but leave you hanging cause they assume you know the next obvious step. It's only obvious after you've done it. lol
Thanks

First model, then uv's, then textures, then cloth modelled and turned into ncloth, then hair with nurbs curves converted to hair, then rig and lastly animate

Oh, and you can do the blend shapes before the rig
