Wanted to promote the great work of Wolkehond. They made a solid fat model base that you can buy on Gumroad. They’ve answered a number of my questions this past year pertaining to blender and modeling fat characters. Seeing a professional 3d model of a BBW character is nice, and it may inform future changes to my own fat character’s rig. Wolke makes models that can be handled in VR chat and Unity, they also create animations so you can count on it being rigged and weight painted well.
Shape keys for plenty of facial expressions
Shape keys for overall thickness
Shape keys for moobs vs boobs
Armature rigging that allows for easy expansion of belly region.
Excellent topology and smooth weight painting.
If you do not want to spend the money for it but want to see more about how it was made you can check out the some of what was recorded on twitch.
Well there aren’t many good quality fat character meshes people can use for their games. Not everyone is gonna have the time to custom make 3d meshes for use in a weight gain related game. Its quality is rather important as optimized meshes are important for getting decent animations and performance.
I’m honestly a bit surprised why you don’t think it would be a useful asset. If it’s a matter of the model being a cow, it would be totally doable to swap the feet and head.
Resell or redistribute the avatar or any of the download contents, either directly or as part of another package
… Which seems to point toward disallowing the use of the model in anything that you’d put up for download, free or not. So, this isn’t really something anybody can use in a game. Theoretically, it’s allowed to be used in an animation, as per
Use these avatars for streaming, YouTube videos, etc. including monetized videos
… And maybe you could insert that animation as some kind of FMV into a game… But I don’t see why you’d do that, to be honest.
Fair, if it would be helpful I can try to clarify that with the maker as using it for a game jam would be pretty neat. But it could also be used a placeholder for game prototyping where it isn’t being distributed in downloads which is handy for me personally. I’ll look into it.
Again as a learning tool for modeling fat characters this is excellent.
