It's been dead for at least 3 years, even back then it would've been disagreement about it's life status.

I really like it. However, the only slight problem i see is the visual detail consistency. The legs and face have a good amount of detail and shape, but the abdomen lacks any true detail. Make the overall visual noise more consistent, imo. Its really small and overall not that problematic. Very nice sculpt otherwise.

How many points btw?
>>
>>519961
Yeah, what the guy above said. I'd probably leave a little stripe of detailed sculpting along the top of the abdomen.

Also, spiders don't have 8 eyes on the front of their face. They have 6, with an extra pair on back of their "head" that detects motion.

Way more polygons to smooth the shape. Better materials for the surfaces. Most sunglasses/glasses have slightly curved lenses and frames. Hinges on the arms. Smoothed normals.

Add metal details like the hinges and screws.
Mesh smooth, tweek your verts until you are happy with the reproduction, maybe add some more loops here and there.
Then mapping and taking into a texture/material authoring package.

What are you going to do with this? Is there going to be some gameplay or is it just a real time rendering movie. Are you going to add virtual reality support? Why Blender game engine? I guess its because of better animation tools than some engine like unreal or unity.
>>
>>520010
It will be gameplay. I'm going for something similar to those illusion games (playclub, sexy beach, etc)

It will be VR, though I'm gonna have to do some work on that. I think I saw a blender game VR project but didnt have much success with using it on the current blender build.

Yeah, I just dont like the way the export from blender to other engines works. I have to worry about constraints not working anymore, bone segments don't export, and the mesh needs to be smoothed realtime to look good. This stuff is all very difficult for me to do in unity. Unreal, I'm not familiar enough with.

Is it better to model weapons like that in one object or multiple objects? I'm worried about texturing issues where some areas might be too obvious. Then I read that quixel suite 2 and substance (maybe others as well) create texture maps based on the high poly bake down to the low poly, and create a curve/whatever map to deal with intersecting objects, like the trigger guard for example.

Working on pic related.

you can separate parts you don't want into different UV islands then mask the rest in substance, its also possible in blender

Being called a samefag, claiming I stole work from daz, and just some general rudeness.

It's not really anything too complicated. I just used a shrinkwrap modifier to form the clothes. Once I'm close to finished, I use a data transfer modifier to copy the weight groups of the skin onto the cloth. I wrote a python script to automate the process a bit in case I want to make changes later. Marvelous designer is really cool but I've had a hard time adapting the cloth over to a usable state in blender.

Nice, always a joy to see someone who understands the importance of asymmetry. That model shows great promise, keep at it and you'll evolve into a fine face-maker in no time.

nice work... I feel the lower lids are unnaturally peeled down if that makes sense. I think you could move them a bit into a more relaxed looking shape.

>>520181
what's the color value on the eye shader? sometimes newbies tend to set it really bright when it'll look more realistic as a gray-ish value.
I disagree with the other anon, the proportions look believable enough.

>>520231

>>520234
the lookdev needs some work, almost like there's translucency everywhere and it's destroying the shaping. the lips look painted on as well. some other things too you should notice if you look more carefully at a real face to be honest. keep working.

i agree with other anon, you might want to move to next study, as you seem to hit your current anatomy knowledge
my recommendation is to do a study of each face part at a time

nose
ears

and then try a female face again
you might not want to, but if you want to stick with 3d, you need to get used to starting models over and over and making studies dozens of times

>you seem to hit your current anatomy knowledge
The fuck is that even suppose to mean? This is a WIP thread and I've made a lot of progress. The face looked a lot shittier and I can easily fix any features through a non-destructive sculpting process I'm using which I then can export as a point cache.

I'm sorry anon, but I fucking hate you.

I hate you so god damn much...

And not because you're good or anything, because you're not; it's because you have horrible topography and so many fucking polygons for a "low poly" model.

Seriously, what the fuck, anon?
Are you new at this?

Before you learn how to do a stylized or deformed character, you should learn to do a normal character.
It'll teach you basic topology to make a low-poly character.
Once you know how to do that, then fuck around with the vertex until they're a deformed abomination like you want, but for god sakes, stop what you're doing now, drink some bleach to un-learn your shitty ideas on 3D modelling, and then start over once you've left rehab and they let you take the fucking helmet off.

it means you should stop being fucking lazy and do more studies
hair isnt you problem, your problem is hitting facial features like eyelid shape and how flesh folds around lips
instead trying to headbutting a realistic human head out of flaved model you should increase your knowledge of each part of the face

also non destructive is what you should avoid, working over your previous form is much better than moving around mistakes, its something I discovered long ago

and I don't get it, you are sculpting it or poly modeling? why do some confusing workflow of exporting point cache or what ever that is

Depends on engine, type of game, size of the scene, how many assets you are using, and the aesthetic of the game, etc...

I've known about my eyelid problem. The reason I'm having a hard time fixing it is because 3ds max's terrible hair and fur bugs out when moving around the verts. I'll put in some time to fix that and the lips were completetly rushed, I'll redo them as well. Two reasons why I'm using non destructive sculpting.
1: I love Joe Alter's sculpting plugin which can help bring out small details in animation like wrinkles, muscles and all that fun stuff but sadly its only in Maya. Because of that I rely on point cache to export vert data back to Max
2: I was retarded enough to make 20 morph targets of my previous shitty model in Maya so If I do any poly modeling it will render all that useless. Hope I cleared everything, getting tired of writing these novels

sorry, I don't know cycles so I can't give you specific advice about that. but I can tell you that it looks like your materials look very blown out, you see how some parts look completely white? this is not ideal when you're doing look development on something. if you're sure you have a neutral lighting setup or a decent HDRI, then it's a problem with the metal shaders. it looks like it might be old school so make sure the diffuse is dark enough, it could be why in that case.

UVing first is the right way to go about it
UV first, then you just do whatever the fuck you do in Mudbox, then you're done, just export the Normals and Diffuse or whatever the fuck else.

allowing lewds might make things more lively, or just create an influx of unwanteds
>>
>>520806
Yes, that would invite a shit ton of unwanteds
I do support the idea of allowing PRODUCTION of lewds here, since literally where else would it go? And I like to believe there are a few good artists here on /3/, even if the most prevalent ones are the shitty ones

But honestly, aside from that /3/ can simply be summed up to:
>1 WIP General
>1 Questions Thread
>~2-3 [Theme] Thread, like the surprisingly productive Waifu Thread that has yet to be revived

Everything else?
>HURR I HAVE QUESTION AND I WON'T POST IT IN QUESTION THREAD
>SHITPOST CENTRAL ARGUE WITH MEEEEE (Pixar sameface thread is a prime example)
>Where 2 download pirated copy???
>LOOK AT MY WORK GUYS!

It wouldn't really help the speed at all

At the end of the day, /3/ is simply slow because there aren't many users on it
Are you aware /po/ is still up and running?
Neither did I until I just checked
We're just simply slow, that's literally all there is to it
>>
>>520806
even though I'm with that idea, I'm afraid it might turn /3/ into a 3d version of /d/. I mean 1 alioto is enough for one board.
>>
>>520816
Contain it in the lewd general, make them make some 3/d/ general or something
It can always be contained in whatever the fuck general they want
>>
>>520823
definitely needs spoilers tho
>>
>>520824
Best case scenario is that 4chan inplements a spoiler-like image option that is simply just for lewds, not spoilers as it's original meant for
Realistically speaking, if lewds are allowed, they'll just use spoiler tags
Photorealistic™-ally speaking, no one who runs this place gives a fuck and 3D lewds will be in limbo

Judging by how shitpost threads are still up on /3/, we probably don't even have janitors

Sadly there does not seem to be any mechanism to appeal the policies of a board once they are set.

I'm pretty sure if /3/ was created today it would be a red board like /ic/. But when /3/ was created we were mostly 14 year old blender fags who thought they were going to be the next superstars of game design instead of the sad, lonely waifu makers that we grew up to be.
>>
>>520825

Every now and then a new mod or a janitor with no idea about the culture of this board will come in and run amok with the ban hammer. The people who use this board know we occasionally have to post nudes to get critiques on anatomy or to give tutorials on anatomy . The occasional time out is just the frustratingly annoying price of doing business.

But it is stupid that an art board where at least 60% of the stuff being posted are figure and anatomy studies has a ban on nudity. It's like a friend of mine who went to a christian college and the art classes there used live models who were fully clothed and didn't teach their students anatomy at all and as a result none of their graduates could make life drawings for fuck.

I got a 3 day bannination once for posting a tutorial on how to model a vagina because someone had specifically asked for a tutorial on how to model a vagina. It's insane but that just seems to be what we have to put up with since there is no way to change it because none of the mods use this board or care about it.

At the very least a lewd spoiler tag would satisfy everyone.

make 1 thread that's dedicated to nsfw so the board won't get spammed

I don't know arnold but are you using 16bit displacement or something? That could cause banding in your map, resulting in the stairstepping. Make sure it's 32bit exr, displacement center set to 0... at least that's what works for me in renderman.

I'm still at the modelling stage and not particularly gifted for lighting, but you are absolutely right. Especially since I'll put glossy materials on most surfaces in the end.

I'm even still shifting stuff around. I replaced the armory and the suit with a kitchen, still working on it.

If you have any idea what to fill the massive empty space in the middle with, don't hesitate. I goofed a bit when designing the room
>>
>>521091
If I was to design a space vessel with living quarters for a single crewman(as this seems to imply) I wouldn't have it so big!

Seeing as you have already made it, I can only offer a few suggestions as to filling the space.
1. A few comfy chairs and a coffee table.
2. An Abstract work of art.
3. Some sort of octagonal plinth for 3D TV.
Bear in mind it would have to be the same sort of 'bolted' construction as the walls.

I have never made a living quarters like this but your idea inspires me, maybe I should give it a go and post in a later WIP thread?

>>521092

Furniture looks good. Have you started considering how you're going to light the scene, since you already have an area light (the window) placed?

The biggest criticism I can offer is that the wall texture is too noisy. There's no reason why the gaps between your plating would be this extreme, and it causes your other shapes (as well as your lighting information once you add it) to get lost, which is a shape. You'd have two ways to approach this problem - either push the plates there's less of a gap between them, or bring the pit of the gaps closer to the wall surface (less extruded) so the occlusion isn't as strong and they don't appear full black/very dark.

Besides that, two other pointers I can think of:

-Floor and ceiling (from your previous pic) are completely flat for now. This is fine if you're planning on adding a lot of clutter later on, as it will be less glaring, but if you're aiming for a sleek, clean design, you will want to consider giving these planes a pattern at some point. Since your walls have a pretty uniform pattern, your best bet would be to contrast it with something that has irregular variation - maybe the ceiling has a few really wide beams, or the floor has a single inset step that follow the shape of the room. Be creative!

(cont.)
>>
>>521096
-Start thinking of a narrative for your room. What kind of facility/ship is it in? Who's using it? You're a good stage to start adding clutter and details, and those will really help sell your story and make your room a lot more believable. For example, you have a gun rack, but this appears to be a single room and there's no way a single dude will carry three identical sniper rifles. In addition, there's nothing yet that really "sells" that your room's occupant would have a gun rack. If they're a mercenary or soldier type who keeps weapons in their room, think of the kind of stuff they'd have with it. Cleaning kits, boxes of ammo, medical supplies (for when they get hurt), maybe a disassembled weapon they're tinkering with on the desk. Look at the picture I posted above - it's a different theme from yours, but it tells a story: the guy in that room is obsessed with data, he's a scientist, maybe a biologist. There's a bunch of tanks with animals, plants that he's studying, and you've also got computers, notes that he's been taking or newspaper clips, on the walls, scattered all over the floor. You can also see the guy is super messy, has stuff lying about everywhere, garbage bags (maybe filled with salvage?) What's important is it's all /cohesive/, it fits together to tell a story rather than being randomly there.

Btw, remember to do a block in of your clutter/furniture before detailing it, so you can make sure it fills the room properly rather than being a bunch of objects that are too tiny or look like they don't belong.

You're doing great otherwise, keep going! And if you already know any of the stuff I've just said ignore me.
>>
>>521016
Oh, and (imo) you don't really need to worry about your skybox before you get to your first lighting passes and have set your color key. You'll probably end up changing it at that point anyway.

Haven't thought about lighting yet, the matte painting is not set in stone yet and will influence it. I was thinking about a low earth orbit with a sunrise.

The walls really are noisy, that's why I haven't touched the floor/ceiling yet. I attempted to put tiles like a normal floor/ceiling but it became overly noisy in general.

There is a black surface shader behind all the panels, I could tweak that to alter the appearance of the panel gaps.

>>521097

For the design of the room, it's the relatively luxurious, considering its on a spaceship, living quarters of a space warrior in her late teens/early twenties (Pic related for the inspiration). I'm not dead set yet on what happens, but I'm thinking something along the lines of a light hearted SOL.

I never skip blocking day ;) Really helps before adding the details. But I think I'll leave the design of the vacuum that is in the middle of the room when I get the story down.

That aside, i might add a lick of colour to some parts, throw in some lights on the ends of antennae and such.
I was also thinking of see how a fracture script goes on the 1.2m or so polys of this model, then maybe create a few asteroids to smash it apart. But that might be more effort than it's worth.

>>
>>521536
Well Blender is a 3D content creation suite with a bolted on game engine. Unreal and Unity are dedicated game engines lacking any form of comprehensive content creation capability.
Neither aspiring to have such features either, so the comparisson is kinda void. People who grow into 3D artists using blender might be tempted to use the native engine as this might seem simpler.

But if you think about it you realize people using max or maya or other dedicated content creation tools will never go to blender for it's game engine capability.

You can build stuff from primitives, and there are things like terrain editing tools etc, so I meant it as I typed it anon.

You can also construct meshes via scripting, so technically you COULD model things in at least unity.
So if tomorrow there was like WW III and you got stuck in a vault with a PC with only unity installed you could still make yourself a virtual companion to help you fap your way trough that nuclear wasteland.
Grantet it would not be a intuitive and very fun experience, but then again neither is the global nuclear holocaust.

What's your topology like? If you're going super cartoony you can probably paint the cockpit flat onto what you have, but if you're going for realism you might want to add a cage/armature to it and actually push in your windows (which if you do smartly shouldn't increase your polycount significantly).

You might also want to consider breaking up the wings a little, either with a crease somewhere, or rudders that stick out or in? That would depend on whether you're copying a real plane or making stuff up, but I'm afraid a surface as wide as the wings could easily end up looking flat without additional geometry, even with textures.

What's with the three little bumps at the front of each wing? For mobile, these seem way too small to justify the polycount.

Thanks, I considered adding the cage to the cockput, but for some reason I thought it would destroy my polycount. I'm only just now realizing that it won't.

I'm going directly off of a blueprint for a real plane, so the wings do actually have rudders that move independantly when menuevering. You just can't see them because they're currently parallel with the wings.

And those bumps are happening because the wings and body are seperate at the moment, but I'm going to join them later most likely.

Grab the disconnected vertices, enable snap to vertex and move them to the part of the fuselage you want them to connect to.

Then remove doubles.

Here you go, with the flat albedo channel.
It was 15,091 triangles. Had to lean zbrush for it, in a small amount of time. To shill, it's for War Of Rights. It's a 1850 Officer sword.

Very nice. Nailed the materials.

>>521793
Nah, it's already connected, it's just creating this weird shadowing around the rectangular area and nothing seems to fix it
>>
>>521810
Dunno then, shading gets kinda weird at low polycounts. Maybe throw on a subsurf modifier when rendering?
>>
>>521811
What do you think is the best way to go in-game when it has to be low-poly? Just leave the wings as a separate object?

Now for the texture mapping (aka my least favourite part).
>>
>>521702

You will always get that on long thin polygons. Add more edgeloops to the wings to reduce it.

OK so basically I said fuck attaching the wings, I just left them separate. Too much of a pain in the ass and too many tris.

Added some details to break the main body up. Hovering around 2000 tris now. Hows it look now? ready for texturing?
>>
>>521829
Looks perfect. Could probably optimize it a bit more, but it's really just personal preference.
>>
>>521830
Thanks senpai. Yeah I'm still gonna tweak some areas and clean it up a bit first, but it's all pretty much where I want it for the most part.
>>
>>521829
The really tiny tubes sticking out of the wings aren't doing anything at the moment. This picture is twice on my screen as a mobile phone, and I can still barely see them. Either drop them, or make them a few sizes thicker.

Unless your canopy is shaped like a pentagon, you can afford to bevel the top edge loop at least once (making the top three-sided, if not four-sided).

I like the detail you added at the front. How does it look from the back? Keep in mind the angle from which the player will view your model.

Nice Wildcat, senpai
Just trying to git gud, so what kind of workflow did you use to make this?
Cylinder and extrude or using something like bsurfaces?
Pic related is something I'm working on.

>>521841
Its also like 20k Tris, so nothing to be honorabru about.

Thanks! If you can actually tell what model aircraft it is, then I guess I'm doing my job right.

It's just some good ol' fashioned extruding. Just slapped a cylinder over a blueprint image and worked around it. Like I said, wings aren't even attached for the sake of keeping topology clean and polycount low, so there's nothing too advanced going on here.

Here's a Zero I'm working on now. It's currently pretty basic, 800 tris. You can see the topology though, it's pretty similar to the Wildcat.

Small update to address the critique I received (>>521301, >>520256). I still have a lot to do before I can consider this finished.

Yeah, that was the idea. For now the ponytail just serves as a base mesh and silhouette.

I can barely extrude and build on from that, except that model I made. I'm so used to using programs like Inventor. I've been using blender for like 3 months now.
Pic related is MXY7 Ohka, basically Nippon steel banzai flying bomb, I would post a recent pic of the model but I'm with the family atm
>>
>>521918
I would suggest some youtube tutorials on box/extrude modeling. Fundamentally it's all the same, especially if you can find one on maybe weapon modeling, because it's also basically just cylinder extruding like the aircraft.
>>
>>521917

The cheeks make her look like she is smiling but she isn't. I would flatten them a bit beside the nose and pull them back near the eye.

I should try car modeling or weapon modeling to challenge myself more. Once I get the technique down, I'm pretty sure I can do it. One thing I have to learn now is cleaning up my mesh.
pic related are my current wips

I feel like that would kill the silhouette value of the head at 3/4 view though, I think it looks fine as it is given the exaggerated cartoony proportions

fucking modern art
go kill yourself. Art needs standards.
>>
>>521950
The moment you put standards on art is an artist's suicide
Production work aside, to limit art is to limit humanity's ability to conceive ideas and the narrative which questions that very concept
It doesn't matter if the art is "good" or "bad", it's about does it serve it's purpose
And the art I want to see now is you sticking a gun up your asshole and pulling the trigger, it would serve it's purpose quite nicely

>>
>>521829
Your problem is that you need to fillet the edge with an extra loop or two. That will soften the transition, but not eliminate the issue entirely unless you add a ton more polys or use things like normal maps to trick the eye. Also look into manually cutting quads into tris to direct the lighting- you can see how I did this on the left front edge of the fillet vs the right back edge. Also note how I used the slide edge tool to make the join rounder, as opposed to leaving it square, which also can soften the transition. All being said, vertex lighting has it’s limitations with very low polygon counts.
>>
>>521932
Nice man. Yeah, looks like you're getting it, I especially like the bottom one.
>>
>>521975
Thanks for the advice. Yeah, when I subdivide it looks fine, but I'm really trying to keep polycount low. I had to make a trade off for the ~2000 tris with the slightly worse looking shadowing transition of detached wings.
>>
>>521980
I understand that, I mostly model low poly for mobile games now myself, but what I look at is the total overall polycount on the screen at any given point- I tend to give myself ~20k tris- especially if you aren’t going to go for modern lighting like pixel lights, normal maps, etc- you can get away with a lot more poly budget wise. Hell, even the 3GS can pull of 10k onscreen at once at 30FPS if you are just using a single albedo and vertex lights. It’s all a trade off, however.
>>
>>521984
For example, this building exterior is 6k polys, but with backface culling on its more like 3k, and unless you’re at a distance with a totally unobstructed view (which will never actually happen in game because of other buildings/environment objects occluding the view) you’ll never see or draw all those polys or vests so the budget is higher than you would think. Mobile GPU’s, especially iOS devices, are great at using TBDR to throw out unneeded verts/tris/pixels to speed up rendering for the most part. I am in now way an expert on this stuff, but at the same time my experience has shown that you can drive the things a lot harder than you might initially expect, especially with the last couple or three generations of devices.
>>
>>521984
Yeah, I'm trying to fit as many of these things on screen as I can with it still looking okay. I can't get it as smooth as I want it, or better looking than simply leaving them separate, Without upping the poly count by a lot. Either way, the player won't typically have a terribly close view of the aircraft.

nice house btw
>>
>>521999
Thanks. You could always bend the normals on the verts at the point the wing intersects the body to smooth the transition with no geometry cost.
>>
>>521999
Also, you're way more likely to hit a draw call ceiling with cramming all those objects before you hit a poly ceiling, just something to keep in mind- draw call context switches cost a lot more than additional polygons/verts on the GPU/RAM subsystem.

Can you guys explain this a little more. I'm not that guy but i realize the importance of good UV mapping and struggle to decide whether to join objects or UV map them separately and how to pack them properly without messing them up. Like how to pro game dev companies UV map every single fucking think in an open world? Is it 1 giant UV cluster fuck? Seems almost impossible to me

knight, you mind explaining the different map layers you have. I recognize the img texture and normal map--- what else do you have there? Specular and..

what do you use?
