I’m a high school student with some level of mastery over java. I want to study computer science further on, and I would like to do a CS project to showcase my passion to different colleges. But here comes the problem.
I guess I have an awesome idea, but I don’t know how to go about it.
I kinda know drawing. I have been learning it for quite some years now. And when people draw characters, the main problem they have is making the poses, and viewing the pose from different perspectives. So I was thinking if I could make a software that would have say, a flexible 3-d stick figure kind of thing and you can change the pose of the character based on real life biology (like joint movements) and then change the camera angles from which it is viewed upon (like in 3-d modelling software), and then when the artist is happy with the pose, he presses something and it gets converted into a 2-d outline. Then the artist can add details to the character. Plus, if this idea works, we can also make something which would add say variations, like fatness depending on actual regions where fat can be added. Or like height. How proportions change based on height.
Is it possible, or is it too far fetched for me? I know that I can’t make the actual drawing software, so I was thinking if I could make an add on for photoshop or something.
Can someone please help me, and maybe be my adviser or something for the project? Or maybe give me some helpful resources? I can learn something new if I have to, so that’s not a problem. I really, really want to do this. Any help is appreciated.
