    ok, phew.

    this leader has taken weeks in prototype and took over twelve hours to develop. This is the presidential candidate Barack Obama, who I endorse (more or less) politically.

    http://www.barackobama.com/

    He is based off Zara Yaqob and is fully animated.

    Thanks to C. Roland, bernie14, and Ekmek for their tutorials :goodjob:

    I FINALLY MADE THE ANIMATED BODY SWITCH!!! :clap:

    download


    USE HIM I BEG YOU AND REMEMBER MEeeee...!

    @Geo
    We can have dreams, right...?

    @Wolfshanze
    Who is that dude?

    @Ekmek
    Thanks! Your tutorial is good and taught me a bunch of good techniques. I would add more to the editing portion of the tut.

    Well, if the American voting public isn't fond of blaming America for all the world's ills, and saying God Damn America is the "mentor" of the next potential American President, Obama has got some serious damage control to work on... rather political suicide poison to defend his "mentor"... not every voting American likes to damn America or vote-in presidents who have been mentored by somebody who thinks like that.

    ABC News Story on the subject.

    Could be what ensures Hillary gets the nomination over Obama.

    Ok, pm me or add details in the thread. In my next version I thinking of adding a "quick leaderhead steps" page that just breaks down step by step how to put fdrs suit on someone. I figure you learn the basic skills by doing that.

    Good job on the leaderhead. I have yet to try photorealistic leaderheads like you've done, I'm thinking of giving it a shot so I may hit you up for tips :D

    It is a good likeness... rather premature to stick him in the White House though... should probably wait till after the elections... he may not even get the Democratic nomination at this rate.

    Still, the detail is pretty good.

    Of course! And after 8 years conservative vetoing, a change is way overdue. ;)

    you know it my brotha!! i got tips for you on that :)
    Im still jealous of how clean your leaders look tho. :D

    You know there should be some parts on how to mess with models, and some basics on modeling that you would need to do this (i need help in this department too)

    also there needs to be more on nifskope coz i had to figure out a buncha crap to make this leader

    i like your idea about a quick FDR leader guide

    Well, I know he is no Kucinich, but he's the best there is.

    I'm glad you like the leader!

    No offense, but this thinking isn't very rational and Obama is clearly a man who can properly think for himself and form his own opinion. "Spirtual" and "Political" are two very different aspects. Try watching Wright's sermon in context where he said "God Damn America," rather than taking a snipped quote out of context like the those pundits over at Fox News want you to think. And do yourself a favor and listen to Obama's speech on race, enlighten yourself.

    Oh and by the way, Hilary has no chance to win the nomination, it's mathetically impossible and the Richardson endorsement is the beginning of the end of her pathetic attempt to divide the Democratic party.

    "My Good friend, Rev. Wright " - Bill Clinton

    Meanwhile, lets continue harping on an out of context comment not made by Obama while the Republican nominee keeps confusing "Al-qaeda" with "Iran."
