Hello my friends.
Whats the hardest stuff you find in 3D modeling?
For me its the hands and foot... using Dynamesh in ZBrush to model a hand/feet its soo damn hard. You need to move things, inflate, and see proportion, and then move more, and inflate to get to the shape, and when youre going to see the result, its like a fuking alien raptor hand instead of human hand....
or realistic cloth
facial structure with decent topology
face, hands and feet
Here's a little tip for doing hands better with Dynamesh.... Sculpt 1 finger by itself, duplicate/scale it across the palm and mesh it together. Much easier, faster and cleaner.
Good polygon hair is always a challenge to pull off. Especially wild/messy haircuts.
find or make your own medium poly base androgynous head to use for every sculpt. easy.
Thanks for the tip of the hans modeling. I will try it.
Same, I spent a ton of time trying to model hair for a stop motion project to 3D print and then I just caved in and sculpted it in clay (which I really should have just done from the start)
Cars. You can't get away with the tiniest, most insignificant mistake.
Thats why you use ZenTools for maya. And also dont mess up, its easy
>just relaxing and averaging an edgeloop is enough
You have no idea about topology and subdivision.
fluid dynamics simulation, and documentation on mentalray's MILA materials.
Seeing a hand that looks so detailed makes me angry and depressed.
OP here, i agree with you. But i think its because we havent trained/study hands 3D that much... me at least.
I do know what im talking about. Its difficult to get a smooth surface on a car while messing with the topology. You will usually end up with an ass load of dents. Then i use zen tools to fix the issues
HURR DURR somebody uses a tool to not have to do a tedious process. They must not know about topology and subdivisions
My point was that even with relax and averaging tools, it's still harder than anything else. I use these tools too, you tard.
hey OP whats ur website and name so i can credit you
You never even asked him if you could use it
>looks at bandcamp page
Yup, that explains this ignorant behavior.
I do not have a website for my models yet, and this hand image i do not own it, i just googled "3D scan hand" to find a image related to this post XD
Speaking of hands, I've been trying to model a low poly one all day long. I can't for the life of me figure out the topology of the thumb's base area. All the tutorials I've found are either high poly or they grow the thumb from the side and leave it there, like someone had his hand caught in a press. I've been looking at low poly videogame models but I can't figure out the logic behind the topology. Dammit, it's driving me crazy.
I'm trying to make a basemesh with a PS2 kind of level of detail. Thoughts/advice? Disregard the rest of the hand.
Well, i never did a hand using only Maya, for example. Im still learning the 3D, and what i learned to do was this,
First do the base mesh of a hand in zbrush, wihout details. Then import it to a poligonal software (Maya) and to the retopology there.
After the retopology, send it back to zbrush and do all of the details.
The picture here is how the topology should looks like, not exacly the same as the picture but, you know..
The loops. Thats what is all about, i think.
isn't 2K for a single arm High?
Yes i think its too much for one arm, but ignore these information in this image. I just uploaded it just to show the poligons of this model xD
