WIP Thread - No One Made a WIP Thread Edition>>543021 old thread
And gonna start it off with some tileable panels - gonna see if we can get those baked and textured.
some playing around in ue4
>>546879That lighting is kinda sweet (if a little excessive), you might wanna play with your materials some more though. That floor needs some actual normals for the planks, as well as some gloss variation (the smooth highlight makes it look like a 1998 photo texture otherwise). Also handpaint some of the wear on your doors away (and add more that isn't straight on the curvature), dat curvature is way too even.
>>546880there are no planks, its supposed to be some kind of one piece flooring but i agree on the rest
its a wip and i understand i have a lot to do still... but, here you go
>>546884noice but use webms next time
>>546864Very nice.>>546879Is this early stage?>>546884fucking sweet.
>>546886>Is this early stage?very early. im planning on adding a ceiling light,some pictures and an elevator. on the end of the other corridor there is going to be a large window with curtains and some props.
>>546864And this is how it looks as a texture.Gotta make a couple substances and another simpler tileable set, and then it's onto environment creation in UE4.
>>546893looks bad :)
>>546895Well it's easy to tweak thanks to substance, lemme know what you don't like about it.There's a couple things I'm already not sure about (the shininess of the foil material, and the color of those handles), but I'm waiting to get the materials into the scene before I tweak those.
>>546896not the guy who wrote the reply but i think you should break down this big chunk of of wall into smaller tiles even if its already serving its purpose
>>546900I'm not sure I understand what you mean. This is a tileable surface, parts of it are going to be used on select geometry, along with cleaner/less busy textures. For example, the "top" part is a set meant to be used for steel beams.I'm not gonna tile it all on a single wall if that's what you're afraid.
>>546893it looks great.
Just need to model the low poly, then texture it.Just kill me now.
>>546940unwrap the subd wire then it will lay over the lowpolybut i don't know what is ur subd level
Yeah I know the legs still look shit.
>>546945Its not just the legs. At least use Sculptris if you cannot be bothered to pirate zbrush.
>>546946Thanks I'll check that out.
working on waifu still. I cant stop fapping to her so work is slow
>>54695010/10 no wonder you cant stop
decided to brush up an old modelprobably will add a weapon and some footwear, but dunno where i put the concept i based it off
Working on clothes for the MC of my short
>>546863Working on my mobile vr game, has a medieval theme
>>546955Now unto texturing.
>>546950just keep up the good work anonI belive
>>546959[spoiler]c-can you post dem topology please[/spoiler]
>>546958please be daggerfall clone
>>546953How did you do that ripped skirt thing.
>>546953slocik, where do you work?
Is this good enough to land me an internship?
>>546988The face geo + texture looks utterly fucked (wtf is going on with his jaw and mouth), and the metal textures could use some help on the bump + microsurface.As for whether this will land you an internship, haven't got a clue. I thought internships were supposed to be for students who are still learning, but I've seen a couple incredibly talented artists on artstation who are in "internship" positions and it's honestly depressing.
>>546989for character artist position?how much polygons is that thing
>>546992just short of 30k
>>546993im sorry just keep workingfor junior position you need good sculpting skills, forget about textures and retopology, that's just iceing on the cake.keep working and don't be discouraged.
>>546988hell noit's enough to land you an unpaid voluntary job with an idea-guy from /v/
>>546976took a sphere, put in place, sculpted in a shape, duplicated 3x, cut out what i wanted, put in the belt, exported it to marvelous, placed 3 parts of cloths to match the design i did, simulated gravity, exported, panel loops to clean up, zremeshthen i sculpted by hand the folds and projected a fabric alpha i found on google imagei woud mask 1/2 of the model, alongside the seams, and project the alpha from 45degree angle to reduce stretching. then use stored morph map to remove half till the middle, and repeat from 45 degree angle from other side, did this 4x and used the stored morph to add random detail, "cut into" it as you see here since moprh map was smaller than the mesh with projected patternyou can see all steps here, left is the angles i used to project one big alpha with just drag rect on layer brush, middle is the sculpted export gave thickness with panel loops and right is md export>>546983you mean where i do 3d? nowherei just do it for fun once a full moon
>>546976>>546997oh if i wasnt a lazy hack, i would just create fast sloppy uvs, and use them to displace the pattern so its seamless, but did this in like 15 minutes, so i just thought, fuck it, who cares about streaching
>>546950is this what happens when you learn the advanced stuff before the basics?
my cicada i have started in different programs to find a work flow.i know 3ds max,zbrush,and mudbox.this was all in zbrush,and i like how fast it is.
>>546976and the image of the process i wanted to use but didnt in the endsculpting the thing, drawing a "seam" with just dam standard, then using slash brush to get the polygroups where the seam is, zremesh while keeping polygroups, uv master default unwrap in zbrsuhscaling up the alpha so the pattern is dense enough and then displacingthis process works great for any patterns, scales, fabric, leather, anything with repeating pattern, then you sculpt over it to give it irregularities
>>547020you could have done this in 10 min with cloth simulation. its 2017 retard
>>546997>i just do it for fun once a full moonSeriously? Damn, son.What do you do as a day job then?If you're in business or something, then you're a cunt.
>>546995had a good chuckle at this.
>>546988Hiding your terrible anatomy behind click to solve lighting / textures / post. I guess the materials are OK but that model is shit.
>>547034i work in construction, renovations and shitand the body if anybody caresdid some more clothing detail, but not worth posting
>>547001the legs, antennae, and eyes should be completely separate pieces, don't model it all as one piece like this that's dumb. needs harder edges as well, insects don't look like soft turds, they look like little armored dudes because of their exoskeletons
>>547053>i work in construction, renovations and shitWhy not character artist for gaming?Literally earn 80k+
>>547060Not him, but I work in construction tooIt pays a lot better than doing 3D, believe me
>>547060first you have to have someone willing to pay 80k$to youthats assuming you live in a rich region to begin withgenerally nobody wanted to hire me in my region and i didnt want to fuck around with freelance
>>546997>>547020Thank you for the detailed breakdown.
Fairly new to 3D stuff. I'm making a 3D icon, do you guys see anything wrong with the topology or something?
>>547088booleans will fuck yout topology up badly.if you dont plan to smooth your object its ok i guess..
>>547090yeah, never use booleans. everything should be quads, it's one of the basic rules of 3d.
>>547090>>547091 Both posts are wrong.I use boolean almost every time when modeling, then just running script to get rid of generated vertices. Check out Vertex Cleaner script if you work with max, I am sure there are analogues for maya/modo. As for "use quads only", forget about it, it is common misconception. If you modeling for smoothing, even n-gons can smooth good, especially on flat surfaces or places with extremely complicated topology. It does not matter what kind of topology you used, decent result is the only thing that should bother you. If you making game-ready asset, it is generally a good idea to triangulate your mesh manually, because baking it and then exporting it to game engine might produce wrong shading because of tangent space desync. I hope it was helpful.
>>547090>>547091You guys shouldnt be giving advice.
>>547104yup. Not using booleans is so 2011
>>547070Hey slocikI want to buy a few of your models. Are you willing to sell?
>>547001Thanks for the advice That actually helped alot. Way better than normies saying"that looks amazing"
My second finished sculpt, all critique needed, i intend to texture and render it later. Im also curious about 3D printing it, anyone here have experience with 3D printing their sculpts? I know i have to simplify it quite a bit beforehand. Thanks
Base of a lighthouse
>>547106Depends, you can just send me a pm on slocik.deviantart.com or googleslocik on skype>>547123had some stuff printed but i never did printing itselfjust use decimation plugin, and depending on the printing software you might have to manually merge and hollow the sculpt out, but some software can do it for you nowi dont like the long face the most, i would squeeze it down vertically and made the forehead bigger>>547129looks like chapel not a lighthouse where they build stuff like this?
https://youtu.be/q9eXxppd390Rigged pretty much done, aside from the clothes
>>547144I blame the angle and wide hips
>>547133Thanks, ill try it out once i get back from work. Also, since i have never done any UV mapping, should i first merge all the subtools into one? Tried unwrapping after watching tutorials and UV master kept on crashing.
>>547143>>547145Now with clothes https://youtu.be/22vpGl2G6Lk
>>547161Those arms looks quite robotic. Need some bend in the elbow and more overlap in the arm sway. Did you model the body or use a base mesh?
>>547164Started with a sphere in Zbrush.That animation is just a rig test, to make sure things deform properly.
>>547167a walk animation is not a very robust rig test.
>>547156Why unwrap?You shouldnt be unwrapig dense models, it applies a lot of performance heavy relaxing and averaging modifiers, it will take for ever o a dense mesh, try staying under 100kbest would be to just zremesh, then uv map, then divide up and project back details
Currently working on this fatass. I'm doing a Metroid diorama with the final bosses and shit.For now I have this Samushttps://sketchfab.com/models/d60c799de3bf4bdebadaec66be9379b7
>>547174Dont i need to unwrap before i can texture though? Im gonna use 3Dcoat for texturing. Thanks for the tips
Added a point lamp fast so you can actually see shit, because lightning isnt done yet.Any opinions ?
>>547183pay attention to scale; everything is either too small or too big(that mouse and socket compared to the monitor for example). take or get some basic measurements to get an idea.
>>547183In addition to >>547183, get yourself a "reference human" in your scene for scale. You can either export the zbrush demo soldier at 0 subdivs (if you have zbrush) or download any free human model. If you feel too lazy to do even that you can simply make a cylinder that's 1.8m high, but I find having something with arms and legs to visualize is better.
>>546945this looks hilariously bad
>>547053you forgot to model its genitals
>>546988I think that everything besides the jaw and mouth looks great. Fuck da haters.
>>547185>>547190The mouse is as big, at least how I think it is :http://history.info/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/800px-The_Apple_Mouse.jpgBut what about now ? I have no Idea how I will make all the textures or how I will look tha ceiling or the walls looking good
>>547212fuk my english I am having a headache, part of the reason I have time to model
The most realistic cell membrane model you'll ever find... maybe
>>547218our cells are protected from the outside world by billions of micropenises. really makes you think.
>>547218Let me know when you have modelled the molecular physics
>>547053How many poly does this model have?
>>547240body?a bit under 4mlnall parts with clothing almost exactly 12mln>>547182there are some non uv methods of texturing but will depend on your 3d packagestill, doing a simple unwrap is as easy as picking few edges here and there, and zbrush uv master automatizes even that
>>547220>the molecular physics
>>546884There is no real sense of weight in this animation.
>>547218Do phospholipids really overlap like that? never seen that in any of the models.also, what program did you use and where did you get the molecular structures? this looks pretty good.
Finally got the displacement shader to work. It renders 1.6 mil polygons but the actual mesh in the viewport is 30k.
>>547301space jam bitch ?
>>547297Yes, the fatty acids of the upper and the lower do overlap a bit. It doesn't look exacly like my image. More like that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipid_bilayer#/media/File:7TM4_(GPCR).png The scene is done in Blender, the structures are from www.rcsb.org and I use ePMV to import them into Blender.
Key to realistic Lightning ?
>>547306your lightning is fine. matter of fact id suggest to get over the basics.high resolution textures, better texture mapping,proper scale,more render samples. better materials
>>547307yeah, I know. this is my first time using volumetric lightning in Blender, any tips for that ? I dont think rule of thirds or the sunrays color from the outside are good
>>547308lower the bounces,up the samples use light portals for efficiency.for interiors its best for you to shut off global illumination
>>547305are there any good tutorials on this, or did you work it all out by yourself?
>>547313 I worked it out by myself. Of course I watched a lot of non molecule related tutorials and applied this techniques to my scenes. Its always helpful to watch random tutorials, while having the unsolved problems in the back of your mind. You'll stumble on the solution from time to time.
Dipping toes in skin shading
>>547358Fun thing I've tried is multiplying a lambert diffusion shader with inverted normals over a normal dot with inverted output for a rim light that shows up more in unlit areas, like a stylized and cheap SSS.
>>547361Don't have time to implement anything too fancy, this is just the default Arnold material with red SSS
>>547362You're going to rig the lips right?
>>547363She's already rigged
>>547367You better be making porn with this.
>>547387/b/ -- who is she ?/3/ - >>547387
>>547322do you use ePMV/autoPACK with blender 2.78a, or do you use an older version?i'm having difficulties installing the add-on
This is one of my first models.I'm not happy with how the legs connect to the torso, any recommendations?
Anyone want $350 for making a 3d enviroment I can use for static videos? I've made all the assets, I just can't render the fucker.
>>547367Damn, are you a pro?
>>547397I use 2.76 for ePMV. 2.78a didn't work either.
>>547424This was my previous attempt at making a face.And no, I'm just a student.
>>547424>>547441I honestly don't know how I pulled this out of my ass
>>547300nice work man.
>>547426thanks, 2.76 works for me too
WIP. I'd like to upgrade my rig so I can do textures and stuff in substance designer and subdivide higher in Zbrush for more fine details.
>>547465jesus christ i remember when I first started working wit displacement maps
>>546988You forgot to give him eyebrows. I suppose /3/ is just a bunch of pretentious idiots who don't know what they're actually talking about, kek.
her body is ready...
>>547555...for texture painting
>>547555>>547556Bigger fattier tits for Thick Chick.
>>547557nah, she's supposed to be a natural beauty
>>547558Not with tits like those, they're supposed to be fat and saggy.
>>547559I can still let them grow and make them sag when the model is rigged. Me thinks
>>547555did u model with ref?
>>547559Well, on a second thought...>>547561Ehm, why?
>>547566because the body don't distribute fat like that.
>>547567Ah, all right! Well then you have your answer, LOL!
>>547569join us https://discord.gg/kQuGc37
Making a sloppy outfit. Just have to rig the hair and make the morphs to fit the jacket and skirt to each other. Then textures.
Now with hair and ear bling
>>547566Oh my fucking god, you're still here.Are you still getting kicks out of trolling these fuckers?
>>547423Well, hello there. What exactly do you need?
>>547586I am never trolling
>>547218what are you actually making this for? are those receptor proteins in the foreground?
One of the first things i did in blender, is there any method that can speed up the modeling process? Dont want to fuck it up but i feel there could be a way to work faster rather than adding every face individually. Also how hard willl it be to export the model with its rig and textures to UE4 once its finished?
>>547576looks cool, whats it for?
>>547596It's going to be an animation about the receptor in the foregraound and about the pathway this receptor triggers. It's a HER2 receptor (left lighter blue) paired with an EGF-Receptor which has captured a EGF (glowing red).
>>547602that topology looks pretty bad senpai but the shape is nice.you have to find your workflow man, watch tutorials and shit.it should be relatively easy to get stuff from blender to ue4, just watch some tutorials.
>>547581The arm bands and shorts aren't actual geometry and that's smart as far as your polycount goes, but I think it'd look better with separate pieces that have a bit of volume.
>>547602model it at a much lower polygon count then smooth it to get your final result instead of starting at that density, it's much faster
Did some simple animation in maya, can I have any feedback please?
Here's my weekend's work, still needs work but it's getting there.
>>547661the ideas work. weigth and timing is off.too slow in general i would say. the bounce at the end shows it really clear. work on the curves
>>547666Thanks man! I tought he was too slow aswell, im going to change that
>>547661its fucking awful
Been working on this.Realized that I modeled to many pieces at the bottom. Not sure why I didn't realize this sooner.I'll address this.
>>547646want to keep it low poly though.I was planning on make the polygons look visible in UE4 with some nice shading kind of like Redout did.
meme forklift for environment im putting together
>>547694the obnoxious chinese lens effect isn't helping the render, can't even tell if you gave everything sharp edgesi hope you won't be putting that effect on the final render with the environment you're working so hard on
>>547701that's completely different render than what ill be importing to, but thanks for the advice
>>547611It's clothing for Daz Studio for a chibi figure I made.https://www.sharecg.com/v/84173/view/21/DAZ-Studio/Chibi-Figure-Lolo-Hai
>>547694looks like some picture under water
>>547694>This obnoxious abuse of CA will definitely cover up my shoddy textures
Working to find a good way to create grass and flowers
>>547722...and some procedural rock shader
>>547722>>547723awful uncanny valley shit
>>547723>>547726probably looks like shit because it's lit like shit
>>547726>>547737Such goddamn pretentious critics here. The work is great and you fucks need to put-up or shut-your-cum-gargling-cock-pockets-up.
>>547740no, that material could look much better if it was lit more interestingly, ambient-only diffuse is one of the hardest lighting setups to pull off in realtime
>>547740You his boyfriend? Learn to take criticism you faggot.
>>547740its not personal faggot
>>546953Listen don't get me wrong, you're a fantastic artist and all that, but why do practically all your characters have like 7-8 fat percentage and their muscles are always activated. This triggers me.
>>547675Wonder to say why?
next step clothes and better hair
Any tips 3ros?
>>547661For animation you'll probably want to go to the /ic/ animation thread, or really just anywhere away from /3/.There are no animators here, or if they are here, they don't post often.
>>547662Pretty good for just a weekend.
>>547662pretty bad. you should take some cues from this guy >>546945
>>547782don't forget to model the pussy
>>547690that's why i said to model at a very low poly count to begin with
How do I constrain/clamp/track or otherwise limit a bone's rotation to only specific increments or orientations?Want torso bone to fit in only 3 different angles. -70.5, 0, or 70.5 only.
Working on another wallpaper/image.It still needs work, but I'm really liking it so far. It's got a different look than what I usually end up with. I haven't really worked on the sky or post yet so who knows. The portal thing will have a different image, for now though I'm just using another image I made.I'll probably have it lead into some slick city streets or something cool like that. Still fucking with the motion blur though. It's a bit different than what I'm used to with a camera. It blurs before and after which is weird. I intend to dial it down a bit.But yeah, this is what I've got so far.I wouldn't mind any ideas you have to spice it up as well.Captcha>Road ClosedSheeeeeit
Trying to convey power without actually lifting the feet so the animation can be potentially recycled combined with running animations and whatnot.Also messing around with fumefx.
>>547591;)I do admire your perseverence though.
>>547866Pretty cool, man! I think there is a way to make the motion blur work only before or after.As for suggestions, I think a little fog would make those mountains in the distance look better.
>>547880Looks good overall, but the muzzleflash is too yellow and the shape looks wrong. In pure daylight it would look way more like smoke and it would expanding faster.Smoke afterwards looks good.
>>547887I considered making the entire muzzleflash on fumefx, but I also wanted to make something that could be used on a game engine (the flash at least), hence the shitty 2 frame sprite. Gonna have to color correct it, you're right. And work on the sprite animation so it looks more like expanding gases and not a single frame of fire.
Making animation for a mod for Arma 3.Also discovered the new PBR stuff Blender can do.
>>547897Good god, I haven't played arma in a while, but is that the default FOV? Looks like a skater about to shoot up his high school.
>>547880That's actually a really great start. I think the return/drop after the initial recoil could have slower transitions - I'm thinking of the animation curves used to show heavy objects/characters, and how movement there needs to build momentum before reaching speed - while graceful movement accelerates quickly.I'm really not suggesting a big change, just a little slower initial acceleration on the drop - like the robot is fighting against the weight of the gun by trying to keep it in the air, cause right now it looks like he's purposely pulling it way down.
>>547782These look great dude. What material is that btw?
Last prop ready for the short
>>547899No. that is 90 in BlenderThis is 90 in Arma
>>547902Thanx man IDK it's some random material I downloaded I do't remember where from, but I downloaded many many materials and put all of them and now I have too many of them and some are shit :|anyway here's some little refinements I did today
>>547885Thanks!Yeah I think I've figured out the blur problem. I had it on "center on frame" which I guess was the problem. Now I just gotta get a feel for how the shutter speed influences the stuff.As for the fog, that's definitely part of the plan. I usually do that sort of stuff towards the end.
>>547910looks like a fucking shemale
novice here with Ricky from TPB
>>547904All assets now complete
Excited long cock
>>547880from a realistic standpoint, watch a soldier shoot a sniper while standing. They will have a wider stance. That's not to say because they wouldn't move like pic related. They would, but that's not tactical. You don't need movement to convey power. If you have a robot that has a wider stance only keep back a little bit. You would be able to tell it's powerful because he needed that type of stance to apply the opposite force the gun is going to. It just makes him look silly like he doesn't know it's gonna be that strong of a gun. I'd suggest making the stance more secure and having less movement you'll then have a more realistic looking powerful motion. Good start
>>547880Why would a robot need to squint?A one eyed bot at that.
Done with making the assets for my student short, time for the storyboard and animation.
>>547951Oh shit didn't realize those were all you. It's looking pretty good overall
>>547951Damn isn't that jet ski thing like 2 years old by now? Are there no assets for the environments? is that a drop pod? if so where's the jet ski stored? if she's going to ride that thing shouldn't she be more clothed and have goggles or a helmet?
>>547958She's riding it in more of an emergency. It drops from the ceiling from an hydraulic lift.The drop pod is actually a cloud vacuum. >>547903 Pic related you can see the handle.Also, there's not really an environment. The third asset from the top row is a suborbital station. Each bloc is an habitation module
>>547866I just couldn't resist animating it.I had the need, the need for speed.Still wip (and a tiny as fuck test render), but it's turned from being a still, to hopefully a pretty neat animation. I'm going to have it loop back when it goes through the portal at the end. Like a droste effect or something. So the clipping at the end won't be in the final.
>>547950lower the aperture, thus reduce dof :) his eye is just a camera
>>547904>>547903The edge damage is terrible
>>547951Please don't fuck up the animation. Its looking great so far
>>547979Yeah, I ran out of time for that prop. I had to pump it out in half a day
>>547951Hey, if you remember i gave you shit because of the walls. You uploaded a file, i took a look at it, but then life gave me shit and i forgot about it. Just got out of a 3 week flu, now my PC (desktop) died and i am nearly broke. I did had the intention to help, but things didn't work out. Sorry.Good luck with your project. The Character looks fine.
>>547951Anywhere I can follow your progress? Would kind of like to see it when it's done.
>>547959how is it a suborbital station? doesn't a space station allways need to be in orbit? suborbital would mean that it's going to land or crash after a short time.
>>548041"sub" means below fyi
>>548042this is exactly what i'm saying though.sub-orbital = below orbit = object doesn't orbit the planet and therefore will fall back down to the ground.pic related. A and B are sob-orbital, C and D are orbital, E is leaving the earth.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sub-orbital_spaceflight
>>548045It's not in orbit. It's just above the clouds, floating, still in the atmosphere.
>>548029Well, since I'm done making assets, I won't post much until the actual short is done, 4 months from now. Might make a pin-up shot of the MC with the props and bike soon.https://www.artstation.com/artist/xenosfighter
low poly ak and submarine. Gun is pretty much done, but the sub is missing a lot of details.
>>548061what the fuck are you designing for, gameboy? since when is the front sight on an AK a fucking toblerone?
>>548047Make sure to post nudes :^)for the topology.
>>546881one piece wooden flooring? I don't think what you're describing exists outside of, like, unfinished plywood subfloor that is supposed to be covered up with something nicer. Feel free to provide photos to prove me wrong.I've also never seen door frames protrude that much from walls. I think you need to look at more references.
>>548070laminate made to look like real wood flooring looks like that
>>548073No laminate I've ever seen. Show me an example.
>>548070they airbrushed it :^)
>>546955>>547365>>547581Lookin good. The weave of the tank top's fabric is way too big and thick. Looks like a knit sweater, not a lightweight fabric.
Ik textures are still fucked for the most part, but what do you guysy think
