>Don't waste time box modeling in this day and age. Go straight into zbrush and dyna mesh up some shit. Retopo later.Is he right /3/?
I am right you know.
>>516359Depends, if it's is organic stuff mostly yes, if it's non-organic stuff, rather not. In the end, just do whatever works best for you.
he is somewhat rightbut you can still box model things and paint normals directly on the models so i guess its not that big of a difference
>>516365>but you can still box model things and paint normals directly on the models so i guess its not that big of a difference?
>>516366you can draw bump information on a model in real timeof course there is a limit on the height information, but im not 100% sure somewhat correct me on that
>>516368someone*here is an example
>>516368>>516369what is your point with all this? You're creating a tangent space normal map from projection painting onto uvs from the viewport instead of in photoshop. So what?
id say start with box then go sculptburt its all PREFERANCE
>>516359mostly but..>>516364>>516365It's what i usually do tho, but most of my work is organic
>>516359Can we all please stop with the Zbrush shitposting?
>>516359Only on organics for the most part.
>>516370so you are not forced to sculpt hard surface and retopo bake
Is this the memebrush thread?
Tell me this... if you want to make a 3D model, regardless of how detailed, lets just say "Somewhere between pixar smooth and that op post photo." - Can you animate this model? I've never looked into digital sculpting as I'm learning to draw, traditional / digital to a certain skill level before I even both to look at 3D modeling or sculpting.
>>516395you can animate any model granted it got good topology
>>516395As long as it's low poly enough so it's malleable. You can always subdivide it later.
>>516359>Is he right /3/?Only if he's a pixologic salesman
Zbrush is nigger
>>516359Look at any product, game or movie, out there. Start counting the number of over-detailed blob demons to the number of clean surfaces.The ratio between those that will give you the relevance of poly modelling 'in this day and age'... >dyna mesh up some shit.mfw truer than intended.
>>516359blob demonology aside, I gotta admit I respect an artist that sneaks in a lava vagina in the forehead of his creature design.
>>516359For organic?Yes.For hardsurf?No, industry is moving towards medpoly
>>516368Yeah you can. That's how I've been doing my hardsurface and as long as you don't make it obvious that you're doing it, it's neat.
So do you guys use editable mesh or editable poly. I hear nurbs are all the rage now.
>>516459>Start counting the number of over-detailed blob demons to the number of clean surfaces.god jesus yes. Everyone does overdesigned shit and thinks he's better for it. Finding clean, memeroable designs is near impossible.
>>516476>overdetailed meme>overdesigned meme
>>516478>meme meme>meme meme
>>516359Diablo The 2nd was the best Diablo D=
>>516459>>516476Seems like i am not the only one.I even like high frequency detailed stuff. But most of the overdesigned stuff serves no purpose and is just there to fill the space and distract the eyes.
Pretty much.unless its a hard surface character. or you need lots of precision.
learn the box basics and then move on to sculpting.
>>516368>bumpnormals. bumps are one-dimensional.>limit on height informationThe limit is in the precision of the image format you're using to store the file.It can go as "high" as it wants, but if you go too high, you'll lose detail because you can only store so much height information in 8 bits.
>>516654Well, that's for bump maps anyway.Normal maps are more immune. Level of detail is less related to color channel and more related to the image resolution. Although in the case of normals, height really has nothing to do with it, since it encodes the direction of the normal vector, resulting in an accurate reproduction.
