Wassup peeps, I'm currently modeling a human body on maya just to have a base model for any animation i might need, the thing is im having some problems with the shoulder, as you can see on the top image, which is the raw mesh, and the lower image the smoothed one, it creates a circle around those vertices. Is it because i merged it? should i use something else for connecting points?Not new in 3d, but i stopped for 3 years and i'm quite rusty
>rustywere you any good then?
merge the vertices that are close to each other. they are creating extra supporting loops around the creases because there are more than one vertices there.
>>516310i was decent, but i want to be better now.>>516311alright ill try that, thanks!
>>516309Don't waste time box modeling in this day and age. Go straight into zbrush and dyna mesh up some shit. Retopo later.
>>516318Here's that memebrush poster again
>>516318Haven't still got the skill to sculp something, will work on it one day...
>>516320yeah, i kinda think if something works good for you just follow it up, no need to change drasticly just because new technology is out there, but i respect everyones opinions specially since most of the people on this board have more exp then me in 3d
>>516437>Oh look I'm angry that 3D modeling takes skill and I can't just move a few verts around with my mouse>>516326You clearly have little experience with 3D, this is the worst thing to think in this industry, if you do not adapt and change your skillset as new technology comes out, you will be left in the dust. The capabilities a program like ZBrush gives are unmatched by a poly modeling program like Maya. It's still good to know Maya for some things, but ZBrush is a hell of a lot more important for organic character creation.>>516325Do you want to be a 3D artist? Then the artistic aspect is what you want to focus on the most, the technical skills should come secondary and will not take anywhere near the amount of time to improve to a good enough level. It's really not hard to just start practice sculpting, you can even get the free Sculptris program, grab some reference images and start going at it.>>516309Check to see if there is a face inside that creased area of the mesh, if so, delete it. You can also turn off Double Sided Lighting in the "Lighting" menu just above the viewport there to see if maybe the normals on the body or the arm are reversed, which could also cause an issue like this.The other possibility is that the verts aren't fully merged around there. Drag select over that whole area while in Vertex mode and go Edit Mesh> Merge.
>>516498>for organic character creation.Exactly. But if you don't do any organic forms?>It's still good to know Maya for some things...Like anything else which is not character modeling, or sculpting of complex forms. Z-brush is like 20% of a pipeline. Maya more like 60%. Don't pretend its the other way.
>>516529>there is only 1 pipeline
>>516540in yer mum
>>516540There is no pipeline to creating a rigged character where zBrush is more than 20% at most.
>>516544Are you a rigger or something, people tend to inflate their own worth.
>>516559Rigging may not be the biggest part of a pipeline but it can be the biggest cause of headaches
>>516309I watched that YouTube tutorial
