>>522058why anime :) this is my first fully complete character for a game im making called santa the molester. it's just a learning experience, and I'm going to redo in the future. Critic pls
Why is starting from a 4000-something vertex cube to a high res character then back down to a normal mapped low poly so satisfying?
>>522058fuck me the op imageyou could at least try...
any other box modelers here? how do I get even topology like this?
>>522068who is this cutie
>>522062>quadsfucking retard, alwayds post polycount in tris
>>522068That's not even even topology?
>>522068that topology isn't capable of being animated. It's 50% triangles. The face has literally no edge flow following any topology guidelines. Plus it's fucking triangles. Maya has good topology tools, but I 100% use 3D coat. There's like a torrent of 3D coat with maybe 3 seeders. If you want to retopo, get it quick.
>>522086Looks like trash why post a view port? rofl
>>522090You can still animate it with shape keys.
Update from last thread
>>522090that topo is 100% animatable, all the triangles are there for a reason,and you can still see the edge loops clearly
>>522114dude if you show this to anyone who knows anything about topology, it will be mocked. This is trash. There is zero edge flow in the face. This isn't a good topo even remotely.
>>522115low poly, don't know the needs and restrictions of the model, assuming facial anim would be blinking and basic expressions it is fine, the model has clearly been triangulated and the resolution is too small to see the underlying topology of the face before it was triangulated
>>522090all topology is triangles. every polygon mesh you've ever seen animated is triangles being animated. edge loops still exist within a triangulated mesh. the fact that the faces are split into tris means absolutely nothing when it comes to deformation.
>>522123Because reasons amirite?
>>522125>saving an image from funnyjunk>using funnyjunk
>>522090yes because you can still animate body parts like thator its just exported from a game engine
>>522115>>522090As a rigger who has worked on a shit ton of models in my experience, this is more than fine and you're just a retardYou do realise quads are two triangles right? Please tell me you know that literally every quad are triangles at the end of it all, right? Literally all those triangles are to ensure that the quad is calculated properly in heavier rotation and deformation areas (So the quad won't suddenly flip the triangle orientation in certain deformations)You can clearly see the quad flow throughout the whole mesh, and what seem like odd structures in the mid of common joints (such as between hip and knee, knee and ankle, shoulder to elbow, etc will have 3 joints, starting, mid and end) are points which help when skinning rotation of the limb Hip topo is for controlling hip volume better since that way it's easier to skin the hips to the U loops on the sides, Why do idiots who know nothing become so vocal about being a retarded cunt?
>>522142U for real. Some anon memeing on the internet about being a rigger. How is his "opinion" more reputable than the other guy.

>>522167lol I was just about to post something to tumblr. I'm dicking around with the VR integration right now. Performance is shit atm on my 2500k/4.4ghz. Odd because bge is not using all of my GPU or CPU usage.I'm hoping to make a demo soon though>>522086I think it looks cool
>>522168hah, cool. You can pull that screenshot over to your rift or vr set, zoom in enough, and it looks just like the game
>>522146probably because the other guy is objectively wrong.
>>522168Jesus fucking christ, why do every faggot on this round planet post these stereo caps fuck up the left/right order so you cant free view em?Is it just me?

>>522168can you add me on steam pls : Karlos_19983
>>522180it's just you, sperg
>>522123Actually he's right and you're wrong. GPUs work with tris, so do cpus. Quads are just easier to use, cause you can subdivide them, you can't do that with triangles. Tris is the only kind of face used for rendering both realtime(games, viewport) and not realtime, except when there aren't any faces at all, like in pointcloud based models, or parametric models(which are rendered with triangles too).t. programmer
>>522084Multiplying by 2 is hard.
>>522196Who said it's an all-quad mesh?
>>522195Actually, you are wrong. The Sega Saturn did not work with tris at all, and it’s rendering GPU (the VDP2), was not capable of drawing them, or even actual polygons at all. It used affine transformation on sprite vertices to simulate quadrangular polygon meshes- the only way to make an actual triangle on the screen was to draw a sprite, affine transform the vertices, and collapse two of the verts into the same location. This, for example, is why you have texturing issues on the first big boulder you see in the first level of Tomb Raider on the Saturn- the texture is distorted by this process. Incidentally, however, this is also why you don’t see texture warping near the camera in Saturn games, while you do in PS games- the 4 point affine transformation makes the interpolation less likely to calculate with errors, vs the 3 point transformation the PS used. See pic- the left is the PS1 version, right is SS. If you look at the wall on the left side of the screen in both caps, you’ll see on the SS version the pixels have straight edges whereas on the PS1 wall, they have a fairly pronounced ripple. This is due to the lower precision triangular affine transformation.
>>522199> was not capable of drawing them, or even actual polygons at all>even actual polygons> It used affine transformation on sprite vertices to simulate quadrangular polygon meshesYou aren't describing a triangulated polygon mesh. None of your comment is relevant.All you've done is refute the statement that>GPUs work with tris, so do cpus. with a fringe case of technology that is not longer used.And still that statement ^ is true. GPUs work with tris. So do CPUs. >>522068This mesh still has edge flow. It still deforms as intended. The triangles still don't mean shit.>>522090and this guy is still an idiot.
>>522180Ever put a view master reel in backwards? It's still 3D.
>>522199>The sega saturn.Yeah, we're totally talking about the fucking sega saturn, you dumb assshit. Also, you're talking about rasterizing. Learn the terms.Also, the way you constructed your sentence makes no sense, cause it sounds ambiguous. First, gpus, well except for vector based monitors, were never capable of drawing polygons.Second,>affine transformation on sprite vertices to simulate quadrangular polygon meshesthis sentence makes no sense, what you probably meant is:>affine transformaton on sprite "vertices", in order to simulate triangles with quadsA fast google check confirms that's what you meant.In the end, you tried to sound smart, but came in like a stupid namefag with your retarded ambiguous sentences that make no sense. You shouldn't try to act smart, if you don't know what the shit you're talking about and if you know, at least learn your terms. You could've just said.>While you're right that tris is and always was the main type of polygon that gpus worked with, there was a time where a quad based gpus existed and even a major console that used them.And then, you could've just said.>A fun fact is, in sega saturn they had to make a quad with one of the edges length 0, in order to simulate a triangle.Also, educate yourself on what rasterizing is and how gpus never draw polygons at all.
>>522193crossing your eyes to see what a stereoscopic image look like in 3D is autistic now?Think it's about time everyone embrace autism, being a normie a lot seems worse at this point.
>>522180he's right though. >>522168 <this one is wrong
>>522207When you can easily make a fuckibg stereoscopic out of some fuckibg toilet paper tube and a bit of cardboard. Yeah it is.
>>522180>>522209That's what the game looks like through a vr headset. It's got distortion to correct vr lenses as well as some CA. You're not really supposed to cross your eyes for those. It hurts my eyes to try.

>>522421Good resources where?
I feel like im not making the progress I want to be. How many of you went to school for 3D? I feel like im not learning at the pace I want to.
>>522424Took me a couple years to get where I am. No school. Then again, I was never really avidly modeling, and what I'm doing now is fairly basic.Then again, I'm sure some people pick it up and make good shit within weeks. Everyone moves at their own pace.>>522421kek
>>522422udemy,lynda,youtube etcwatch videos about texture painting in blender>good resourcesanything that have alot of views
>>522424>How many of you went to school for 3D?don't do this. classes in digital 3d stuff are in a lot of ways a waste of money aside from networking or getting instruction and insight from a serious industry vet if they're teaching the course (not as likely as you'd hope). some hardcore industry vets do move to education and most competent schools will have a few on hand but it's a crapshoot. i'd instead recommend taking courses to learn foundation art skills. 2d design, drawing, painting, sculpture, that sort of thing. most community colleges offer foundation art courses and programs and they're a great resource. it may sound like a waste of time but having a wider tool set of general artistic understanding and ability will help you a lot in any 3dcg efforts you pursue.

Working on an 80s Catgirl outfit now.
>>522438that's pretty good advice. I just finished a degree with with a school that had industry vets in both foundation and full time courses and I felt there would be no way I'd be where I am if it wasn't for their help and advice.It's still funny to see how most people manage to fuck even that up, like 90% of our class dropped out because they were lazy and 60% of the people who are left won't ever work in the industry because they either never turned up and ignored critisism or just coasted.Then again I know some people in the industry who went to a real shitty school but still ended up being successful. TL;DR: it's not what course it is, its how hard you work, and even if you work hard a shitty course is worth more than autodidact

Can I ask some questions too?1. How do I get the shadows/edges harder on this armor? I've tried lots of edge hardening and normal averaging and shit and this is as distinguished as I can get it. Do I need different colors/materials to make it stand out or should it be able to be as obvious as it should be just with basic lambert boloney?2. Why do quads or tris only matter? I was told to keep it all one or the other but never the reason why. This guy is wholly quads and correct edge numbers and that's how I model, but I don't know why.3. Mixamo gave all their animations away a while ago and I got all the ones I could ever think about using, but I'm not sure how to take what I have and rig it so it works with what they have. I can animate in maya but I've never rigged so I don't know if I need to exactly match what mixamo does or if it would be easier to rig and animate it on my own. How hard is rigging and applying animations?4. Is it possible to apply different UV maps to the same object? I'd like to get a lot of detail going but I don't think that's possible without cutting corners if I do it all in one UV. Could I make one for the shoulder armor, then one for the chest, then one for the helmet, etc?5. Thanks for any answers you can give me, I'm very much self-taught and I was never told the real do's and do-not's.
>>522606I posted this in the questions thread too>>522610
>>522593Dude, we can't critique what we can't see. Just show us it with neutral lighting then you can get all moody with it.
>>522606Show us your wires.
>>5226061 select edges to harden -> mesh display -> harden edge2 quads are optimal because they can be smoothed by splitting into 4 smaller quads. mesh -> smooth your model and see how it looks. Undo it. Now use multicut and make a few random quads into two tris. smooth it again see what happens. Usually game engines will convert your models to tris because they're mathematically easier to work with and it's not like it's going to be smoothed in game.3 depends on the quality of animations you do. If you already have animations, look into humanIK and you can transfer animations to your model.4 yes. Open UV - UV editor -> UV sets. More UV sets will allow you to have a higher resolution, but this is obviously more expensive. You have to decide the balance.

>>522707If you just want a pretty animation, then it's pretty simple. Just follow the wikipedia picIf you want it to work realistically, then damn dude I got no idea
>>522699So all your renders look like shit then. And you like that. You like that all your renders look like shit.
>>522727Actually, I just wanted the basics of the geometry of the valve gear (e.g the angle of the crank relative to the drive rod at any given time).Shit's confusing.

>>522809you have about 100 tris in that shot mate. Whats going on?
>>522810I started deleting parts of the mesh to see the difference, seems like all polygons are distributed pretty evenly. 4k isn't that much for a first person weapon right? Highpoly is 90k

>>522903How did you learn to do this?Its basicly a chibi-er version of what I want to do?
>>522904do some mirror modeling. im sure there are tutorials on thisthe hair id extrude edges from a plane, you can also start differently, the idea is simple
>>522904Yeah I think that's pretty accurate,as for how I did it having never played Persona Q: Started with a 6 sided cylinder for the head and just built straight down adding edge loops and cutting faces where I thought it needed themIf anyone has got ideas for making hair look better I'd love to know, I'm extruding out edge by edge right now and it's tedious as hell
>>522110Draw the rest of the fucking owl
>>522873Nice, but the grip is way too curved. Are you using reference?
>>522707Fuck yeah, SolidWorks.
>>522873As somebody pointed out your handle is too curved. There's also a leaf spring at the side of the pistol that holds the hammer in the half and full cocked positions, it's missing on yours as well as the ram rod. The pan needs to be horizontal. A pan that's angled like that would end up dumping the primer powder when you pressed the trigger causing a misfire.That's one of the things they get wrong a lot in movies. They'll show people holding flintlocks straight up over their head and pulling the trigger to fire it because it looks dramatic. Do it in real life and you'll end up with a spark and a lot of black powder dumped on your head.
>>522942no wait the leaf spring holds the strike plate open of closed, the hammer is held by an internal mechanism. The strike plate needs to be closed to fire.Black powder weapons are a lot of fun. I actually find them more fun to fire than modern weapons. You can get working modern reproductions for under $2000. I've always wanted to try hunting with one. I imagine it would be a challenge to hunt birds in flight because you can't aim up as high with a flintlock musket as you can with a modern cartridge firearm.
>>522927Actually there were some pistols with that kind of grip. I can't image they'd be that comfortable to fire.
>>522944But they where excellent when you flipped em over to use as a club or hooking device when scaling a ship.
>>522948Not to mention they'd probably be less likely to slide out of your belt.
>>522950And much simpler to fast draw in a tight spot than >>522927For me the hook design is the more familiar one for flintlocks. But I'm not very educated about the armament of that period.
>>522927Yes of course, here's the reference
>>522953Okay it looks like the pan isn't actually tilted but has one side with a higher edge, probably a weather guard to keep the wind from blowing away your powder before it could ignite as well as catching falling sparks and channeling them into the pan.
So I made the high poly, then the low poly, after that I spent hours unwrapping the bitch and finally baked maps. Painting next, skinning, animating.Why is this shit so much work /3/?

lil thing I'm working on. fun little project. Thoughts? Just basic shit atm gona tweak the camera stuff now
>>523025it looks really unoriginal, like you used a bunch of built in presets and copied some legos
>>523029Disagree completely. Anthropomorphic shotgun shell and pistol round having a DM with shotgun and revolver? Pretty fucking original.>>523025Cool idea, nice execution, way to go.
>>522873The end of the flint held in the jaws should either be wrapped in leather or encased in lead to help hold it more securely.
>>523031>Disagree completely. Anthropomorphic shotgun shell and pistol round having a DM with shotgun and revolver? Pretty fucking original.
>>523029>>523031Pretty sure it's from Enter the Gungeon. >>523025The characters / enemies in the game are appealing, this isn't. Looks too "standard 3D", like all the dirt and the wear patterns and stuff just look so standard and commonplace without looking authentic at all.
>>523035>Pretty sure it's from Enter the Gungeon.what does that have to do with anything? I could copy some asset from some unknown thing, doesnt mean shit. Just like my tattoo artist could tattoo some crap on me that looks horrible and claim its from some other shit
>>523029Presets? as in Primitive shapes? >>523031I appreciate that man, it was just a quick project.>>523035Yeah it's from enter the gungeon. They are pretty simple concepts so I wanted to keep the design aesthetic simple also.Modelled them up in Maya from mostly primitives and then Textured in Substance Painter using many of the stock materials there.
>>523044>Presets?as in material presets. Which you just admitted to. You have no skill kid
>>523046You do understand how Substance Painter works right?Why do I need skill to justify anything? Did I make a claim about it/ how skilled I am? I don't want to spend a long time on this small project hense why I used Materials that come with Substance Painter... A program where you use Materials to paint things, I could spend hours creating materials in designer just for this but it isn't on the cards, I've got a job and other things to work on. Why am I justifying myself haha.
>>523048At least spend some time to throw some smart materials and blends on there so its not so obvious you did 3 clicks in painter and called it a day. I've seen other people take on these guys and even a base or something for them to stan on would go a long way
done in blender anyone know how i could make those teeth better?
>>523070First, the material is terrible. Second, look at reference of actual fangs, they aren’t just cones. Even just that will make a huge difference.
>>523070>lightning.jpeg in the backgroundkek

>>522606>>522610I think it's turning out quite well, although for some reason these screenshots turned out a little jaggier/worse than how it looks in-game for some reason.What do you guys think? I'm not much of a texturer :/
>>523134Looks like its made from space-age materials. Maybe pirate substance designer and watch some tutorials on metals.
Thoughts? Obviously WIP
>>523199The anatomy of that skull is off Get lots of references and fix it
>>523133I think you should work on your form before you work on textures.Make a more detailed model. In fact, why don't you just pirate ZBrush and sculpt a sheet of cloth out of individual fibers? Apply the normal map of that cloth to a single quad in a regular 3D modeling program and then go to town on it with photoshop.Maybe then you will get inspired.

>>523239your creases are going too far, in your reference they barely go out to the middle of the asshole but you have them going all the way to the outer edge. Focus on making them puffier I guess
>>523189your back anatomy is weird, especially the upper back. i dont have time to point out it all but look closely at some ref images and how the muscles flow there. from the side view the flow from the neck down to the midsection doesnt feel quite right, like look at ref and see how the shoulderblades should affect the curve. the front looks like a better start, although your topology is kind of questionable in some places. i think you should look at more ref for the front as well cause some of the indentations and flows dont feel quite right.>>523125i say red>>523070basically what other guy said. also your material needs bump/normal work so as to break up the specularity. it looks like a plastic toy. give more overall color variation to the base as well, even subtle gradients can help. this also applies to the ship, all the wood looks exactly the same. if its just a still image you can do some work in post. also the base color seems kinda noisy, usually you want to avoid/localize that and keep the high contrast for the other maps. the flag looks good. the bg is kinda vague, where is this exactly? i can see you put in good effort though so keep going>>523008its old so i wont critique it but its pretty cool.
>>522983i cant believe you're still here. you've gotten better though. but work on that skin material it looks like plastic.>>522980nice, skinning and animating what?>>522784curious why disable perspective?

>>523246>your back anatomy is weird, especially the upper back. i dont have time to point out it all but look closely at some ref images and how the muscles flow there. from the side view the flow from the neck down to the midsection doesnt feel quite right, like look at ref and see how the shoulderblades should affect the curve. the front looks like a better start, although your topology is kind of questionable in some places. i think you should look at more ref for the front as well cause some of the indentations and flows dont feel quite right.Thanks, anon. Any suggestions on how to consistently get a good topology flow when working, or do you know of any tutorials or works that are good examples?
>>523282I think when I first learned how to polymodel a body I used that joan of arc 3d tutorial, if you google it you'll find it. but honestly it's pretty annoying to try to think about topology while modeling. I would pick up sculpting, it will allow you to focus on the form more and then worry about edge flow later.>>523295the render looks good but you can work on the shader/texture. the fade/gradient doesn't feel quite realistic to me. and maybe if every cup wasn't exactly the same it would make it better.
>>523303sorry, i realize that the pattern is different. still, i would play around more with changing up the top gradient a bit to see if it improves it
>>523303>sculptingThat's a thing, yes. The few tutorials I've seen always had the workflow of "boxmodel ->subsurface modifier -> sculpt -> fix topology".Thanks again, anon!
>>522987I like doing the highpoly first, because the most shapes are piss easy to derive from a highpoly compared to having to "unwind" the triangle-heavy lowpoly into a proper subdivision cage again.
>>522982why is it reflecting what is under the armor on the other side of the armor?
>>523247>nice, skinning and animating what?The weapon ofcourse
IS WIP the beginner topic of /3/? I'm thinking of starting a beginner's general on this board but I want to know if this place already has one.
>>523317yeah, pretty much
>>523317This place is slow as hell so just use this thread.
>>523036Enter the Gungeon is very well know in the indie scene. Also it does "mean shit" if someone working for me called this their original concept I would fire them.That being said I think he did a good job anyway
>>523199anatomy is bad, sculpt don't poly model things like this
How is this looking? Ignore the materials, I still have to work on them
>>523334>Enter the Gungeon is very well know in the indie scene.>the indie scene.the what
>>523348The Indie scene. Are you retarded?
Retopo of DVA all quads no pesky triangles
>>523316sorry, I don't do any games work, do you still have to use bones even if it's a non-deforming object for it to work in engine?
>>523365neatsome of that topo is atrocious, though
>>523373Yes, even when it doesn't deform you need to use bones to be able to paint weight.
>>523365I dont think eye loops are supposed to look like that
>>523389you dont have to paint weights for some things. You can just parent meshes to bone with no weights
>>523373Animation of solid objects that do not deform may or may not use any bones depending on how you set it up. For instance if you have a robotic arm or something you can use the transform pivots of the objects themselves linked together to make up the animation system.Bones are really just pivots without any geometry attached to them. The objects featured in programs like max and maya named 'bones' are just convenient to use as such objects included.
>>523392Can you put spline controls on something like that? Animators will not even touch something with no controls
>>523391But what if I need a bone for the weapon and one for the ammo for example? They are both the same mesh
>>523395you should not have made them the same mesh. What if in the game you want to have spent magazines on the floor? if its the same mesh you cant do that
Trying to get in to character modeling with this mutant/alien type guy. I think its coming out alright there is still plenty of work to do. Any crits will be helpful
>>523399Start with a human. That way you can easily tell where you've fucked up, and you have a goal to work towards. As it is that terrible anatomy can be justified with "it's an alien."
doing body later on
>>523246>redReally? I was thinking either a navy blue or a deep lilac. Generally something that goes good with the brass trim.But I guess red would be nice. Might look too much like Iron Man though.Also, I've officially decided that Walschaerts valve gear is way out of my league.
>>523365breh. can I get a close up on the nose on the side view?
>>522062Where is his penis ?
>>523400can you tell me whats terrible instead of just saying that it is?
>>523444what is it supposed to be ? abstract art ?
>>523445It's still WIP. I'm messing with the materials
>>523446bad ass logo tho
>>522110looks like dragonsaga, actually (dragonica in the EU). but it's not chibi enough to be dragonsaga. Is this a common way a warrior looks? like exactly the same colors etc...?
>>522260yes let me use a NON-REAL Reference of a horrbly angled and animated/drawn shot7/5 stop while you still can
>>522685we would if we could see what you got there
yah eye topo kinda sux, but I want to complete this version first and make a few other models that are low and high poly
>>523456Thats not bad at all but why don't you use the ingame model ? Theyre doing SFM porn of it already
>>523457that was a thought, probably do something like that guy with the Helen/unity
>>523458Oh I see. You got a nice start there. Can you add me if you have steam : Karlos_19983
Browning M1919 lowpoly.C4d, Substance Painter.
>>523413i can imagine his voice from just this screenshot. sort of like a dutch version of the swedish chef. "myerrp myerrp myerrp"
Added a new aluminium material, and finished the skull
>>523471looks gud /s
>>523471poorly rendered low poly rubbish
>>523475It's glossy low-res. Rendered each pixel 500 times, which took me 20 minutes. Even if I rendered it 1000 times or more, it'd still be grainy due to the glossiness.Also, I do it low poly because my PC is a toaster.
>>523476>>523471Why don't you focus on finishing the model before you go attempting to render it (badly)?
>>523476>Also, I do it low poly because my PC is a toaster.You may do it low poly but that is not why. Even a 10 year old PC that could play the games of the mid 00's is usable for making the graphics for contemporary games.Basically if you can't do it on a computer like that, you can't do it on a faster computer either.
>>523499Anon, I don't think you really understand anything about computers. I have a 2007 computer, and if I subdivide an UV sphere, FPS falls to 10 or less
>>523525>I have a 2007 computer, and if I subdivide an UV sphere, FPS falls to 10 or lessInteresting. As a point of reference I went back in my archives and fetched a render of what I was apparently working on back in 2006 on what must then have been my 2001 computer.If you can't subdivide a sphere without your system choking your computer is probably from the very early 90's anon.
>>523529My specs: Intel Core 2 duo, 4GB RAM, 2.5GHz, on-board video card (the offboard one burned a few weeks ago, a Geforce 9400GT).Again, I don't think you understand much about computers, anon.
>>523555>on-board video card (the offboard one burned a few weeks ago, a Geforce 9400GT)That’s your problem, right there. You’re forcing your shitty onboard GPU to do the work, and/or offloading what it cannot do to the CPU. Do you have $16? Because that is what it will cost you to get a slightly better replacement on eBay, a 9800GT/512MB:http://www.ebay.com/itm/5189-4534-nVidia-GeForce-9800GT-512-MB-DDR3-PCI-Express-Video-Card-/252395855485?hash=item3ac3f71e7d:g:IOMAAOSwKadXPgdp
>>523556I do have 15$, but I live in Brazil. The shipping costs $47 dollars, or R$169,60 , and I can't afford this. I might buy another 9400GT though
>>523414>Walschaerts valve gear is way out of my league.Then try Stephensons valve gear
>>523577looks more like a dwarf
>>523577the last swing speeds up weirdly at the end
>>523581Weapons are entry tier, but it's decent. Nothing special.
>>523581I'm practicing normal map baking and texturing that's why I'm doing simple stuff
>>523577this is pretty good so far but you should push the feeling of force in the swings, and especially make the head feel more affected by the force. it almost feels like he's being mind controlled if you know what I mean. nice camera animation btw.>>523581watch for those really thick scratches on the metal they make it feel doughy
So this is what it looks like rendered. How do I make the metal (not the brass, that turned out nicely) surface not look as rough? What finish should I use to make it look like polished steel?Also, shame on me for posting this at 4:00AM.
>>523471position of the skull is completely off, which in turn has made everything else wrong, look at your reference
>>522900rip models from games and FUCKING LOOK AT THEM
I made this slut
>>523773Good shit. With a porcelain material it would look dank.
>>523775like this? the texture still looks like asshole
can't be bothered with retopo on this thing so i did remesh
>>523577I like the animation, has weight to it.
>>523033Nigga you're the same faggot in that other thread.
>>523789I like it, it reminds me of something I would sell at my restaurant
>>523825speaking form experience, i would delete history on that before something fucks up and corrupts the mesh, or something like a UV smooth operation crashes Maya. There's no reason to keep that kind of history and it just slows everything down. Btw when it comes to unwrapping faces, you may want to scale the face region up to fill more of your UV space and ignore compression on the top / back of the head because it likely won't be visible. Also if you cut holes where the inside of the nostrils are, and cut a seem outwards from the holes in a place that isn't too visible, you will be able to relax the outside of the nostrils a lot more easily.You'll also want to make the UVs symmetrical and add asymmetry to the vertex position.
working on low poly, first time doing handpainted characters
Any experienced in 3ds max? Is there any modifer or automated way to turn a square into an even cylinder? As in consistent radius around the circle?
>>523577fixed him up abit, also, he knows kung fu now
>>523577>>523880This is mocap, right? Looks awesome.
>>523915yep. its from mixamo
>>522242How do you make the points curvey like that?
I prefer not to use pirated software and don't like buying things.I already have substance, but it doesn't seem that good at diffuse painting for stylized textures.Should I use blenders built in texture painting system for that or should I suck it up and buy 3D coat? Feature wise I literally just need layers and circle brushes, nothing fancy beyond that. Honestly, I think photoshop has the capability so if anybody has any experience with that let me know if it's viable or if it's crash prone trash.
>>523880If you actually want to use this in a game I suggest you fix the timing. Right now it's too evenly spaced, needs to be edited for more impact for the hits.
>>523930How hard was it to take the mixamo animation and apply it to your guy? I'm unfamiliar with animation but I got all the free mix ones from a couple weeks ago and now I want to use them.
>>523951it is pretty easy, just stick your model in the autorigger and there you go.
>>523942not that guy, but wouldn't it be better to edit the animation of the enemy being hit? rather than the player hitting?
>>523941A lot of blizzard people use 3d coat so it's pretty viable. The steam edition runs like ass so don't get it there.
Electric whistle..ignore the noise.
Does this look about right for a water tube array?This was an absolute BITCH to dimension.
>>523959Holy shit dude I didn't know they had an autorigger, I thought it was some involved process. My guy looks great with these animations, especially free ones!Thanks for the heads up senpai, you just saved me forever rigging my own shit. Obviously it could be better, but I'll take a free, instantaneous 95% than a painstaking 100%
>>524026Oh I see the filter is on, I said the short form for family, and I use it ironically, which makes me slightly less of a faggot.
>>524021What tool is that? looks neat
>>524028You're still a massive faggot nonetheless.
>>524040Throw an fbx of a mostly t-posed character of yours into mixamo's (website) autorigger and all you have to do is put where the elbows, wrists, chin, groin, and knees are, and it rigs the rest with surprisingly good results.Then when you're previewing some of the animations you bought (I think they're still all free, or I was able to get the zombie ones today still free at least), you select your character and you can watch your guy doing all that shit right in the browser.It's really neat
Polished steel looks so much better.
What's a good way to get some detail on this gun? Should I just pick a random gun image and copy its side?I can model it, I just don't know what to model.
>>524165>I can modelnono you cant
>>524196wow thanks for the constructive criticism, I didn't know I was on the pros only board. Care to share what you're working on?this took me literally 5 minutes, I just need any gun for my game but I don't want to just copy/paste the side of an M4 or whatever, and was wondering if any of you knew a good way to model guns details besides straight up copying from reference
>>524203sure kiddotook me at least 30 seconds
>>523577very good quality animation, but he looks drunk. I'm no expert in fighting techniques but he seems to have a little too much follow through, or maybe a better way of saying this would be that his attacks aren't very precise? Of course, if you wanted to make him look drunk then 10/10, if not then 9/10, still good work.
>>524103That finish looks more like acrylic than steel.
>>523365did you model that, or did you just retopo an existing model?
>>522317Thought this was Kabuterimon from the thumbnail.
