So I blocked out a scene from some sketch I found on pinterest. Looking to do relatively low poly / hand painted environment. I mainly do animation but I wanted to give this a shot since I've been told by a few people that i'm good at texturing so I want to give this little environment a shot.

What do you guys think?
How could I improve what I have so far?

ps. im a shit modeler pls dont shit on me too hard.
>>
>>504373

obv you're not gonna take advantage of any bump maps. You have to be the best texturer in the world if you dont want that to look shit
>>
>>504373

If you can paint/paint textures(2d art drawing, painting with tablet or something, you know what I mean???) it could turn out nice, just directly draw onto the model. If you can't, dont even bother.

>>504376

If he cleans up his mesh a bit and makes it a bit more stylised AND he is able to handpaint textures I don't see why it has to turn out shitty.

I have experience hand painting textures. I stopped doing it almost two years ago so I'm fairly rusty. This is what I was able to accomplish for a school assignment. Did fairly well on the brick but fucked up the texture on the sidewalk due to time constraints.

As for cleaning up the mesh, what could you suggest that I do? If you could give some tips to make it more stylized I'd gladly appreciate it.

also I have a feeling UVing this will be aids.

I made this for practice. I didnt use a grid most of the time and didnt try to be acurate and just moved verts around without any grid, which makes it look more messy and you can make it look more stylized.

Looks like it back to making props. Will post some here when I start again tomorrow.

A few weeks until my 2nd year of 3D modeling.

I use Blender and Zbrush. Zbrush 99% of the time.

I'm trying to learn rigging and animation, but I feel like I am absolutely wasting my time with Blender.

Should I stop right now? I have Maya 15 opened in fact.

All the tutorials I've watched for rigging in Blender frustrated me, then I watched 3 minutes of a Maya tutorial and it's eons ahead of Blender. Blender feels reserved for retards and children; clunky, UI, etc.

I guess I answered my own question..
Does anyone have any reference to start animating for games? I'm going to be using UDK. Animation is an entirely different beast I have to tackle and the first time I've felt this anxious about modeling since I began. Keep in mind, I'm reading the UDK manual and watching Maya tutorials.


Last question, I looked up reference for topology, and know what good topology looks like for animating. But, how does Valve have 500 poly base meshes for DotA with the worst topology I have EVER seen and still make fluent, amazing animations? All I've read on /3/ is how important topology is, but when you look at any DotA 2 model, it's a fucking nightmare.
>>
>>504495

this is the complete model.

Would I go animate this initially without his accessories/clothes? Then add on the clothes?
>>
>>504456
Hey mate that's really awesome that you could make it so charming in a subtle way by going out of your way to give it imperfections. But that viewport lighting. . . how did you get that!?

>>504662
I spend a lot of time cleaning the loops and creating the shape, the head took me about 3 days. I think it mostly boils down to experience and having a firm grasp on topology. Results such as >>504644 aren't bad and aren't far off from >>504624. The main difference is that the former is more stylized and has more emphasis on the cheekbones and a face that isn't as flat.

These tutorials have been the most helpful for box modeling, just ignore his voice. The first 3 parts are enough to get all the important loops and get a decent enough shape. After that he just keeps tweaking them until it dives into the uncanny valley.

Working on this interior scene, still very WIP
I'm trying to figure out what the fuck is wrong with my dome hdri (that causes the black line)
>>
>>504894
might be a mapping issue, or anything below horizon is disabled.
or maybe you're taking "dome" literally, and it should either go around like a sphere or be offset downwards.
>>
>>504894
I see this a lot with HDRIs. I'm not sure what causes it, but it's like the image wraps around the top half of the sphere and the bottom half is black. I don't know any fix, and i find usually the HDRIs doing this are low quality, so it could just be poorly created.
Nice WIP btw. it reminds me of the shitty house my grandparents used to own.

just use another hdri, i think there is an option to blur it too

also use normal map on the walls, you can easily do this with crazy bump

The HDRI's resolution is something like 8000, how can there be a mapping issue when nothing's been touched
>>504902
Changed the hdri, same resolution, but still the problem persist, I've also tried to change to to mirrored ball, but still...
>>
>>504903
I guess changing the colour was easier than making it look less grass-like.

Anyway, here are some things that I noticed on first glance:
>everything is matte
The only thing that isn't is the bowl on the coffee table.
Why not give the lamp above and the coffee table some gloss too?
>bricks are too big
You have 16 rows of bricks in your render. Now if you google "brick wall apartment" you can see just how little 16 rows is.
>everything is too perfect, lacks "life"
Consider using more props, like a book and a pair of glasses, or a glass of water and a napkin, something that tells a story about the kind of person that inhabits this environment.
The cushions on the sofa are too perfect, maybe add a slight indentation, make them look just a tiny bit used so that it doesn't look so sterile / lifeless.

Other than that the render is good, it's really just these minor details that I think you should pay attention to.

Thanks a lot for the tips, I'll make good use of them
For now I'm just trying to figure out what's the problem with my hdri, I've tried to turn off the vray dome and just use the hdri in the environment slot, no more black line, but I'm wondering, it works the same way? I mean, the result in my lighting is the same? If so, why using a dome light instead of standard environment?
>>
>>504908
you need to bring light in the house
"photorealism" isn't what gonna make this render good, you need to a have a middle point so the viewer can focus his attention towards, still need to see how the light affect the wood and the metal

I would suggest making all the glowing areas their own UV islands, so you can just fill the whole general area of those UVs with a solid colour.

That image is not a UV snapshot, it's a render of the actual mesh that must glow (From that perspective of the camera)

The parts that glow on the hover bike completely glow, there's no UVs involved. Sorry I'm not really clear.
>>
>>505204
What are you using to add glow in post? If it's photoshop, pirate MagicBullet photolooks plugin and use that on a black and white render of the glowing areas. then obviously set it to screen.

Or if you dont wanna get MBL, try render the glow areas on transparency and use filter > other > minimum to expand the pixel edge and give you more pixels to work with.

or try just taking what render you already have of the glow, blur it by 3-5 pixels, duplicate, flatten, blur again, repeat until you have a larger base to work with.

I just took the glow layer and shifted the brightness up to max so all the edge pixels are pure white, add a few glow layer style duplicates, one on screen, one on colour dodge, at varying opacities, and a bit of a blur / motion blur for some glow.

>I just took the glow layer and shifted the brightness up to max so all the edge pixels are pure white

I think that was exactly my issue. I'll give it another go
>>
>>505280
Forehead looks to far to the back, it's also too pointy in the front and should be far smoother and flatter. Nose looks too big for anime, needs to be cuter.
The mouth is terrible, mouth corners are too far forward and should go into the face. It also needs more definite shape, from the side those faces still have well defined lips.
Just a guess but I also think the entire face isn't flat enough.

Did you base it entirely on 2d references? That never works out because the faces aren't drawn with perspective in mind. First sculpt or build a head with primary shapes until you think it looks anime-like enough in perspective mode.
Also post front and side wireframes.
>>
>>505305
So basically, everything is awful then, as I figured. It was a mishmash of a 2D reference and a 3D topology; I think rather than dealing with that any more I should just suck it up and work my way through learning zBrush, since I'll have a lot more ability to manipulate basic forms there.

As far as I know brown sugar is darker/has dark spots inside, is less see-through and it has this white powdery diffuse surfaces on edges and rougher surfaces and white powder particles around and all around its not very reflective. Kinda similar to raw amber.

Dont get me wrong, its good so far, but maybe even try a totally different approach and get rid of the glass/ice like shader completelly and try a subsurface scattering shader or a translucent shader instead(or mix a slight reflective surface with a subsurface shader)

I'm working on a simple bipedal rig for the first time and am running into issues with the IK handles.

When I set the IK handle from the hip joint to the ankle joint, it seems to work fine, except for when I twist the pelvis. The feet should stay planted when I rotated the pelvis once the IK handle is in place, shouldn't they?

When I rotate the pelvis, the feet still move even though the IK handle has been placed. I'm not sure why this is occurring.

Any insights or advice is greatly appreciated
>>
>>505539
You have to get a single chain IK from the heel to the toes. And even then. You have to parent that SC IK to something that's not parented under the hip bone, or the hip bone control.

Renderer is VRay.

The only maps used are the standard noise and cellular maps that come with 3DS Max.
The method I used to create those rocks is basically this one, with a few tweaks here and there: https://vimeo.com/10163233

Once you get a feel for it you can create sculpted looking rocks in minutes. Creating multiple different looking rocks is as easy as fiddling with the map settings for a few seconds.

>>505537

You're right, it was supposed to look a bit rougher and less shiny. I actually rendered that one with incorrect blend settings for the powder/damage layer, so it's constrained mostly to the edges. It was supposed to look more like this one.

Still, I didn't mean for it to look quite as dull as the sugar in your picture. I actually used some sugar I had at home for reference, and it looked a lot cleaner and shinier than that.

Anyone know the best way to do this?
>>
>>505555
you need to bind the teeth to the lower jar bone and the eyes to the eye bones, which should be part of your head rig. If you dont want to animate the eyes and mouth and you only have one bone for the head, you bind them to it.

This anon was faster.
Or if you just want to parent them like you started. You need to parent them under the head joint. Not the mesh.

After rigging my character, I go to File > Send to MotionBuilder, and the rig imports very brokenly into MotionBuilder.

Any idea why this is occurring? I think it's due to not having a "bind pose" set for the rig. I'm not entirely sure how to go about making one.
>>
>>505563
I never did import things into motion builder, but one thing that comes to mind is, did you freeze transformations on everything that supposed to have Translate/Rotate/Scale = 0?
>>
>>505564
Yep, all my controls are set to 0 or 1 (0 for transform/rotate, 1 for scale).

I also set a keyframe for all keyable channels for the controls on frame 0, which I figured would set up my bindPose, but it's telling me it can't find a bind pose for bn_pelvis01, and I'm not sure why.

The rig works fine inside Maya, but once I import to MotionBuilder, it just poops itself for some reason.
>>
>>505565
>but it's telling me it can't find a bind pose for bn_pelvis01
You probably bound the skin with "Allow multiple bind poses" on in the options.
It's giving me that error when i bind the skin with that on.
You can save the skin weights, export them somewhere. Clear the history on the mesh, and rebind it with that option off.
If you do that, you might fuck up something else though.
>>
>>505566
Forgot to say, when you bind it again. Import the skin weights back.

>>505573
for number 1) well, you have to make it match, edit it so it fits or hide it

2) UV maps are allways interpreted as a perfect square, you have to make it fit, try this:

alternate the orientation of the sides of the post, the top part is wider, if you put it upsidedown you will have more room to fit all

if I alternate the the side posts then it become harder to paint. I have to keep flipping the canvas around. Isnt there anyway to make the area bigger?

Texturing upsidown its a common thing, get used to it, you can rotate the canvas easy with "R" tool in photoshop

Mudbox isn't free. They killed it off and it's $10 a month now. It's not great for sculpting, but it's alright for painting. But you're much better off using Substance or Quixel for painting on your models.

Does either Substance or Quixel have good 3D painting tools ? Mudbox's dry brush is great when it works, but otherwise painting plates like for the droid I'm making can be quite the PITA.
>>
>>505757
Substance Painter and Quixel are literally all about 3D painting, you don't model in them at all. They far exceed Mudbox due to their procedurally aided texturing workflow. And Quixel gives you access to all of Photoshop's tools for painting on top of the unique stuff it offers. The scratched metal presets Quixel would already automatically give you a decent look without any real work, but obviously going in and doing some manual stuff is advised so it doesn't look as amateur.

I am mostly done with modelling, now I'd like fix how I render stuff.

Pic related was rendered with the objs raw from level 7 into maya, which produces a bloated 1.2gb .ma scene file.

Normally, I'd simply make a normal map but I want to be able to do an occlusion render pass (which can't see normals)

So how should I go about this ? Displacement map ? Displacement map + normal map ? I have no idea.

What you should have done is used proper edge-flow so that the model can be smoothed/subdivided at render time, not statically at such a high resolution, my lord... I'm not sure how you even managed to create a model that decent looking while not knowing the basics of subdivision modeling.

Closer to 1,92gb actually. I sculpted these details and not knowing how to make AO work with normals, I sent the raw mesh into maya.

Are you saying I could have subdiv'ed all those details by edge loops ? I'm not sure how but that'd be great. Can you share how ?
>>
>>505819
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=554L6ycWPo8

And on your "objectnameShape" tab in the Attribute Editor, you can scroll down to "Smooth Mesh", and set the "Render Division Levels" to the amount you want at render-time.

Did you make this in ZBrush? If so, you likely worked with Polygroups to make those shapes yes? Then you can use zRemesher with Autogroups to create topology that can be smoothed at render-time.

But since you're already basically done, just use a Displacement map. You can use the AO from whatever renderer you're using too, no need to bake it.

First, get the outside to actually look like the truck. It's currently not even close.

Then, you model the inside like anything else, piece by piece. Model a seat, a steering wheel, the dashboard, and so on.

But in both the inside and outside, you need to be using reference images. If you can't find them for that particular truck, then at least sketch some yourself.

Nah, if it was that easy I would have been done long ago. Normal maps don't support ambient occlusion, as far as I know.

I kept getting faceted surfaces before but the 7 -> 5 trick did it.

Thanks, face is something I've been fiddling with. How I did the hair, you mean modelling or texturing/shader?
>>
>>505945
Face shouldn't be too hard to make, but I'm wondering if the hair is 3D and actually reflective or is everything just flat shaded.
>>
>>505945
could you show the wireframe for the face?
>>
>>505125
No it isn't. PBR just means physically based rendering. The only thing it describes is how light effects a surface. you can still make it look like Mario.

Why does this happen to my texture when I import it into UE4?

pls help
>>
>>505933
Yeah, it would loose contour. Those kids seem to think people only model for games. Normal maps are only used for fine details when it comes to production rendering, and even then displacement mapping is usually used instead, because physical shapes always trump faked normal lighting. We just don't usually do that in games do to the performance hit for a real-time situation. Though real-time tessellation+displacement is starting to become normal in AAA games, and in fact Maya's viewport can do real-time displacement and tessellation if you turn it on in the Smooth Mesh settings of your Shape node.

Does Maya 2016 have a tool that can round holes? I can't find it anywhere.

and related, quite useful:

Just paste them into the script editor, and at the top right you can add the script as a button to your shelf so it's always there to use. Can even assign a hotkey to any shelf button.

Oddly, no. It's not a big issue since there are a billion free scripts that do the same thing, but they really should get around to it.

So...does it matter if there's a bit of space left in the UV map? Every step I take is an uncertain one. All I'm doing is going into each (detached) room and:

Relax Until Flat -> Rescale Elements -> Pack Together (with rescale off) -> Pack Normalize

Is there something I'm missing, or something else I should be doing?
>>
>>506213

Rarely should you ever expect a computer to do a good job on its own.

It matters if your mesh doesn't end up having a high enough resolution on its faces because you are not fully utilizing your UVs.

Reposition it yourself if it's a problem.
>>
>>506213
Pack another room in with it. There's no point leaving empty space in your textures like that.
Idk why you're using so much auto packing. Stop being lazy and pack your own Uvs, it almost always works out better that way.
>>
>>506215

Im just trying to minimize scaling issues transitioning from walls to floor, etc...especially when all the rooms have different dimensions.
>>
>>506220

Then scale all your uvs at once ?
>>
Yeah, getting more filled in here. All different stages- some of the handle area is final/nurbs.
>>
>>506220

There's nothing wrong with adding another UV map so that everything's at it's best resolution, assuming this is just for a render.

>>506327
my redesigns of the face are already unrecognizably different from the image I posted.

Honestly, I don't know what I was thinking. I drew this face in image planes that I really liked, but I guess it just didnt translate to 3d well.

Anyways, I know how to model faces but polygonal hair has always been tough for me.

I'm so confused. All I did was shell, outer. Cleaned up, and the outside has this weird lighting issue now (the black line on the left). The right side shows what I did to correct it, which was deleting the faces and bridging the edges back.

How can I prevent this in the future?

it must have messed up your UVs. You can prevent it by waiting till after this step to do your UVs, but it's probably not going to be that hard to fix.

bretty gud

I'm not sure if that's fanart or not but I would never think of it as an aircraft.

Solid visual appeal, altough I seems you slapped a lot of different mesh together to make the shapes, with no concern for mesh contuinuity. If you want to take it further than that grey shading that's no good.

For rooms like this you should use UV Map modifier and select Box, it will scale everything evenly and make lines match.
