For objects (especially vehicles) with highly detailed mechanical areas that are likely difficult to find sufficient reference material of, what methods do you use to model these areas?
I'm sure there are tons of cad drawings of vehicles m8
>>551238>Cars>difficult to find sufficient reference material ofNigger fucking WHAT?There are a half trillion books for every car model for decades that have every single part drawn out.
>>551254Surely you realized he's talking about car undersides specifically?
>>551277lmao you want hard to find undersidetry modelling under soviet armored vehicles and shit.
you don't model the bottom family.
like >>551254 said theres plenty of documentation on parts, as well as reference images. personally i would listen to >>551284 and not bother, otherwise its time to learn a little bit about cars.
>>551284you model the bottom so when the car goes over a jump and flips you see something and not a flat plane. Are you just a newfag or....?
>>551287yeah unfortunately none of the car made on /3/ is gonna be in some kind of steam game :)
>>551287so mostly you dont?
>>551289physics engines are very common and easy to implement in 2000+17. Look up Bullet
>>551294didn't say you can't replicate a car driving just like in a video game. i just said there is no point of modeling anything but the exterior, especially when its going to be a render in the end
>>551295everything is a "render in the end" newfag. Are you just pretending to be retarded?
>>551297no but unless u gonna take the time to bake a whole car, texture it and upload to marmoset i don't see why would anyone model the bottom unless you gonna display your realtime skills, most car renders are offline simply because its easier not to bake something like a car
>>551298learn to model with speed. Adding the bottom of a car shouldnt take more than 2 hours. Stop being retarded
>>551300i didn't said that's too hard or time consuming. i just said its pointless to model something like the bottom of a car without at least 6 ref shots which you don't fucking have so why offshoot it
>>551301learn how a car works and make it up kiddo. Do you think your pal Tor Frick would just leave a vehicle barren underneath?
>>551302that's the difference between modeling something as a brand or giving it a "tribute" so u can tweak some stuff as you go along.in the end it doesn't matter so much, but some people do look at those details and it might be someone you want to impress.
>>551303if they wanted accuracy, they would be the ones giving you the reference in the first place mate. How long have you done this, professionally?
>>551305if you are working in the industry then yes, but if its for some client he might not know that you even need refs
>>551306are you working in some slum in mexico? You dont sound very professional.
>>551307nah, but i don't feel like driving all the way to florida beach to get take some pictures of bmw coupe
>>551305i work in the industry.I don't get given refs only image of ingame context. Only refs are given when they are specific about some details.
>>551309sounds like you're not working for a good company, you're just pushing shovelware
>>551316I guess cod games are shovelware, so you're right
>>551316watch ur mouth kiddoaside from 3-4 artists that i can point on here, the rest of you are not working in the industry or not putting enough time, so please.
>>551319underage b&>>551320dont you dare speak like that to me.
>>551322Just because you're so lazy that you can't get your dream job doesn't mean other people are
>>551320I know of one other and she doesn't even come on /3/I know many more pros who go on /ic/
>>551324Tor Frick posts here or used to.
>>551325I'm actually aware of that despite how infrequently I come here.I wanna move and join some swedistani studio one day, but I guess I need to get to art director in some smaller place first.
>>551327dont /b/ afraid to post work here, tor will critique it
>>551329is tor the one who posted the m60 or thompson submachine gun? it have to be either him or chillydog
>>551329can't post, most work is NDA and can't do any work on my spare time since RSI and carpal in both arms and I'm close to burning out as it is
>>551331use a wacom lad. post your personal work
>>551334painting actually caused it. I post personal stuff on occation but not much need since all 3d peeps I know are inna industry.
>>551337you should have used an easel or one of those desk arms and painted from the shoulder. You brought this on yourself. Now you're nothing but a troll
>>551338>lmao just let me spend 600 bucks I dont have while at uni to get a desk arm easel in a temorary cramped ampartment that I swap out every few months suck a dick.Not stretching, taking breaks and overworking caused it.
>>551339you painted from the wrist, kid. Now you're fucked. I literally just got two easels from amazon, one for $15, one for $50. You're just retarded in more ways than one.
>>551340ye so what.I still managed to work hard enough to get carpal in both hands after pulling 12h days at uni for a month straight.Can you say the same?
>>551341Im not a retard if thats what you're asking. I bet you cant even sign a check without having pain
>>551344woah, chill dudesomeone get this hothead outta here
>>551344Well atleast this retards gets their paychecks from a games company.Whatś your excuse
