You know the soap shoes I was doing earlier? Yeah, I'm redoing them from scratch. I learned a lot while making the Knuckles hat, so hopefully I can apply some of this knowledge to the shoes.
And when I finish the model I'll use the newer Sonic model with fixed hands.
I took orthographic shots of the original shoe and then retraced them for detail. This ended up being slightly pointless since I don't know how to get cards set up in blender, so I kept it and am now using the original model for reference. Good reference for detail though in the eventual normal map and such.
I may have to redo the shoe a third time, but hey, I want this model to look REALLY good and really match modern Sonic's model... not just the old Soap models slapped on.
