Okay so, finally have something to show, this is what i have been working on lately, the Avatar 2.0 face expressions, mouth animation, blink and all that stuff.
This is such a terrible mesh to work with, the polygon count is really low so i had to increase it in certain places for the expressions not to look choppy, and still some expressions just dont look good. I also still need to work some more around the eyes to be able to close them without stretching the textures. The biggest limitation is keeping it compatible with all the skin mods for this avatar, i havent yet figured out what to do with the eyes and some of the mouth expressions.
Anyway, this head is going to use the M3 system but a light version of it, since the head uses linden eyes, it will also lack some other stuff that only really work on an anime style head. There will also be optional rigged mesh eyes that you can attach and load M3 eye textures onto, you will be able to use the eyes with your LL avatar head or any other head that supports LL avatar eyes.
The price of the avatar 2.0 will increase by 100L after this update is live so anyone who hasnt got yours yet, better do it now, although there is no hurry really because this update will take forever to do.
