Mon Samuel Benitez aka. Vivisik of CgPinoy shared his entourage tutorial.
Step 1: Choose any picture that you want to create.
Step 2: Copy and paste this file in Autocad for easy tracing. Although this can also be done is SketchUp.
Step 3: Trace the file using polyline and once you are done with tracing you save the file (see image below)
Open SketchUp. Import and open the drawing file in Sketchup.
Retrace some of the lines until you see faces. Close some of the lines to create face.
Step 6. Once all the faces are done, apply colors and materials. Rotate it upward and resize it (by proportion). Here I used Bryce as my reference for the height.
Step 7. Then Select the whole thing, right click and make component; rename it and check always face camera.
Done...Save your component into a new file. Below are some of the components I did using the same technique.
Now you have personalized SketchUp 2d people. You can put all these components in one folder or submit them and share in Google 3d warehouse..
