gonna make a racekar brb
>>558448who wants to see my gondola
>>558459fuck off with your fake bear
>>558448>Bad UV EditionI kekd
>>558463>>558462>>https://youtu.be/EUsbpmQ9-mcoriginal , unfiltered audio for this.As always, WIP I see much flaws myself, right away, just conceptalso sorry for shitty render qual only have laptop for now
My latest work, fully procedular and game-ready.
>>558478your normal's seem inverted.
Knight waifu in progress, mostly just throwing in the pieces, detail will come in later. Feet and hands come in when im posing it.
>>558489that face is too long
Getting there.... now for the other side of the fucking street....
>>558496I like the gritty setting. Would be awesome if you can put some trash detail and some dramatic overcast light coming from the sky
>>558496Looks really great man, is this from a reference image or?
>>558497It's gonna be a night time scene lit mainly by neons and shop lights.It's based on an exceptionally chaotic area of Tokyo called Shinjuku which is just unbelievably messy in every conceivable way. Pic related.
>>558498Thanks. It's from lots and lots and lots of reference. Google street view is a wonderful thing. Just drop your little man somewhere in China or Japan and wander around the streets with your WADS keys looking for inspiration.
>>558498I make a 'photobash' at the start of a project, just bending and distorting images I've found in Photoshop till I have a composition I like.Here's the photobash for this piece....
>>558501then i'll go over it with lines just for the sake of clarity. I'll then dump this over the top of my render_cam viewport and model to this.
Fuck it. I'm officially calling this side of the shot finished. Moving onto the rest of the job for real now.
>>558490thanks for the critique, much appreciated.>>558491will fix, did some transforming when drunk as fuck and i agree it looks pretty bad.
3dsmax user herequestion for maya brosin 3dsmax, if I dont have "set key frame" selected and alter something in the scene, the entire animation changes and thats really nice in case you want to change the scale/location/rotation of an entire thing after you've already animated itdoes maya have some way to do that? To change the scale rotation or location of an entire animation without having to change every key frame?
>>558530Reminds me of the chinese suburbs in Kane and Lynch. They made a good job with the street details.I like where this is going.
>>558530Looks really good. If you want one tip I'd say choose a different texture for the big vent shaft. The pattern in the metal in that photo is due to faceting, but the material you put on looks more like it was sponge painted.
>>558545You can use animation layers or the time editor to layer animation. You can also use the graph editor to easily alter many keyframes at once. If your rig setup allows, ou could also just create an extra adjustment group containing the objects you want to reposition.
Hello.>>558500>Google street view is a wonderful thing.Seconded.
Making a floor texture for a street, thaughts?
>>558578Sketchup right? Texture are bland and the lighting is bad. Model could be better buts it's okay, those other things are letting it down.
>>558579try to find a neutral lighting angle
>forgot to resize>on top of that lower eyelashes were misplaced somehowfuck sorry about that.anyway tear my asshole
>>558704>>558708The cheeks are real fat, it looks fine from the side but like she's eaten too much Lovin' It from the front. Try to make it more "triangular" if that makes any sense (pic related). As in, straighten out that concave curve in between the chin and the end of the jaw. Then I'd tone down the cheeks themselves and scale down the sides of the faces along the X axis.Your neck is also extremely thin. Don't be afraid to put some meat in there, in this type of style you can get away with some thin necks, but not this thin. Pull them back as far as an imaginary line behind the ears afterwards. Your ears look like bent thumbs. If your character has lots of hair, don't worry so much about adding ears right away, as hair can often hide a lot of them. You can always add in a proper ear by combining two meshes together or cutting a hole in the side of the face. The ear doesn't animate like the rest of the face, so super proper topology isn't a major concern there. https://sketchfab.com/models/33d642e65f124644af17d1177291d9faI suggest you look at models with cranial topology similar to yours like this, and then just copy the shit out of them. Keep looking at references and keep plugging away at it until you get to something you're really satisfied with, my man. Your stuff's not there yet but I've seen a lot worse.
>>558712thanks anonI think I'll do a realistic face before doing anime, or just do alot of fundamental stuff first.because to be honest, I don't know jack shit about sculpting or topology. I just made this watching a few tutorials.I got a long way to go
>>558716>realistic face before doing animeFuck, I wouldn't make that tradeoff ever, even though most people will tell you to do exactly that here. Anime babes are where it's at for me, realistic is as boring as it gets.Either way, to each his own in this case. But don't throw away the work you've done so far, that's the biggest cardinal sin you could commit. Put that shit on a folder so you can come back to it at some point.
>>558717Fucking hell, just kys. You offer nothing to society.
gave up on another project.focusing is hard, and even harder on an environment when i have no clue what i'm doing.i finish block out, get discouraged, productivity deflates and i go play overwatch.which leads to me laying in bed at night contemplating my crippling sense of self deficiency.think i should make a lot small things instead, so i can at least produce something.was following David Lesperance and Sharpstance's tutorials.
>>558788You should stop working before you are completely exhausted. Save some serotonin so you can get to work the next day. Set a limit like 8hr/day max if this keeps happening.
I call it "tfwngf".
I'm making a stylized bust after months of working on PBR oriented worksamples
>>558834the lines on the grin look a bit off.andrew loomis is a 2D artist but is a good reference for anatomy, especially the head/face.
>>558834Awesome. Your work is beautiful and perfect, don´t let any retard around here tell you otherwise.10/10, would praise again.
>>558827Did you use sRGB to render? Fucking amateurs...
>>558783That's not true at all, I've offered some valuable advice for this anon, which more likely than not, belongs to society at large.Checkmate, anime skeptics :^)
>>558849Causing me real physical pain here Anon
>>558857I'm not the one abandoning my projects. Stop hitting yourself.
>>558850Yes. Is there something wrong?
what should I make
>>558840Not sure if joking, but thanks (?)>>558836I will emphasize the depth of those lines.
>>558489Get rid of the boob plate.
>>558788I was exactly where you are well into my twenties, fretting over everything, trashing it, never finishing anything and just not getting anywhere, ever. Then, I finally realised I had ADHD, got myself checked out, got a proper diagnosis, underwent treatment and my life changed from night to day. I'm just angry it took so long for me or anyone else around me to come to this realisation.Seriously, you may have ADHD-PI ('primarily inattentive').Go see someone about it, don't wait for it to magically get better, because it won't - again I'm totally serious. Even if they find you don't have ADHD, they'll offer help for your productivity/confidence problems - if it's something that's causing you mental distress (this is the point you need to emphasise) - someone will take you seriously and try to help.
>>558923Anon is correct when he says someone will offer you help for this;If you're a male under the age of thirty who expresses symptoms of depression because of a lack of productivity you are instantly 100% on their radar for being a suicide risk, believe it or not.In fact it's pretty standard in ADHD screening to ask the patient if they've had suicidal thoughts because of a lack of productivity.
jews did 9/11
>>558923saw a psychologist that diagnosed me with it. guess I should call up my doctor now and get me a psychiatrist. i would love some amphetamines. i'm pretty damn sure they would help me alot.i can not form long term plans for the life of me, and my long term memory is absolutely shit unless something prompts the memory.it's strange watching a good movie, then not being able to recall what happened in the moviea few months later.
>>558956I get weird AoE2 vibes from thisNoice.
>>558834i liked your PBR snippets but i gotta say i like your stylized stuff more.you might not agree with me but i think soldier in raincoat was one of your best works
>>558973Hey - if you've been diagnosed with it, why aren't you taking treatment? Also, long-time medication user here; therapy does not work, pills do. Don't bother with CBT it is 100% a waste of time, just get the meds and take the, as prescribed. As I've said - they changed my life. I honestly don't know if I'd be here today if I'd not started taking them because I was so depressed about my situation and future prospects. Also - you'll be offered two types of pills;Methylphenidate hydrochloride (adderall / Ritalin / medikinet / tranquilyn are the brand names).This is my *greatly* preferred choice over the other thing they'll offer you:Dexamfetamine sulfate. (Don't know any brand names for this one). I tried the dexys for about two weeks; horrible. It just refuses to leave your system, so even long after the perceivable effects have worn off - you're still totally wired, and like, not in a fun way or anything. You just cannot sleep. Also - and this isn't a joke; my hair just started coming out in clumps in the shower. Read up about it and yep; amfetamines cause hair loss. So, ah, no thanks for the dexys.But methylphenidate? Holy shit yes. Saved my life. Don't abuse it, take it as prescribed, and it might do the same for you.
>>558973Drink coffee in the meantime if you don't already.It seems silly because it's coffee, but don't underestimate how ridiculous caffeine can be for focusing. Would recommend to anyone having trouble staying on task.
>>559048This is fine advice for normal folk but medicating ADHD with coffee is like putting a band-aid on a broken neck.ADHD is a symptom of not having enough dopamine in your system. Caffeine isn't really any kind of substitute for dopamine, unfortunately.
No UVs tho...Is it shit? and why?
>>559058It's a start.What a you trying to show off tho? I ask because a bunch of stuff in that scene is kinda stuck in 2nd gear.The character is a) not yours and b) too basic for it to be about character work.The environment kinda looks like it could lead to something, but you need to take it further (the bones on the floor are a fine piece of story-telling - they could be developed and expanded upon).The lighting is serviceable.Overall it's certainly a start, but you need to kinda have a word with yourself about exactly what it is you wanna achieve with the piece before you move on.
https://sketchfab.com/models/8b23ff8c187445e0871ca9514a7f13af>>559017I'm with you, and I too prefer the stylistic approach, but I want to work with this stuff so I got to make sacrifices and learn industry workflows which takes time and can be tedious.Thanks man, I like raincoat guard too.>>559058I'd increase the readability or contrast between mike and the background, either via color or light. Add some color variation for the bones and rocks. It also feels very rendered (fuzzy). Cool.
>>559059You could do the storytelling with the environment without 'Mike' actually being in the scene.Consider the concept again (which is a fine one btw);Previously loveable Mike from Monsters Inc. has somehow gone feral/evil and turned into an actual monster - ok, fine.Think how you could communicate this idea to the audience just by showing the contents of his home/lair while not actually having Mike in the shot.Severed arm of his blue furry pal just peeking into shot?Blood spattered, torn up mail from Monsters Inc informing him he's been fired?It would be fun to see evidence of mike's descent into madness like an alcoholic or something.
>>559059>>559061>>559062Thanks guys! To be honest, I didn't really have a plan or anything for this, I just started doing something. I'm not a character guy so I don't really have any ambitions with this but I'll consider your advice for next time.My main interest with this was the environment and the general composition, but I agree with you that there still is much to do..On a different note, pic related is one of my best received works. I know its shitty lowpoly / facette look but what do you think about it overall?
>>559042need to see a psychiatrist to prescribe it to me. doctors in canada don't. seeing doctor today to hook me up with one.>>559048i don't like coffee, i tend to forget i made some.caffine/l-thenine pills are nice sometimes, but besides making me feel non drowsy it doesn't do much.>>559057i've done mdma twice. both times my friends were feeling it, and i felt a light buzz that was hardly anything amazing. wonder if it has some kind of correlation to my suspected undiagnosed adhd.
>>559068i'm digging the composition. I feel more could be done with the clouds, they are fairly similar in size/shape. feels very heavy on the right side.that or just get rid of them.i feel the cacti in the background are a little large/similar in size.maybe add a few in the far distance.maybe a bit of grass in the distance too.i'd just push the depth/shape variation more.
>>559073Way to fucking dark! Needs some highlights.
>>559068Honestly I think what makes it nice is that it's a complete/finished work. You've got various sizes of rocks, interesting structures (both organic in the arches, and manmade in the buildings), a variety of vegetation, secondary details (the clutter and tanks around the building), even a sky with little clouds in it, and everything fits thematically.Sure, it may be memepoly, and there might be some ugly stuff (like the fucked up cactus models, grass not fitting in with the style, and the composition being passable but not that striking), but all the things I mentioned above (basically making your piece feel "complete" will give a major boost to whatever you work on.
>>559073Hey - yup, ditto the lack of any high on MDMA / ecstasy. MDMA doesn't amp up dopamine but serotonin (I think? Might be wrong...) but anyway yeah, serotonin and dopamine are closely related and I think a lack of one normally goes hand in hand with the other so, yeah - while your friends were experiencing a surplus of serotonin, you were probably just getting up to normal levels.That said - *one time* I did X and the person giving it to me said it was particularly good stuff, I swallowed it and said 'whatever, it's never worked before' and that was the one and only time it actually worked and it was pretty cool. Methylphenidate gives me a very mild version of that feeling but without the mania, the horniness, and of course - the feeling that the entire planet fucking wants to kill you two days after taking it.
>>559068why is the grass so dense ang high poly you could make it overwatch style
>>559073Post back here to let us know how it goes. Pro-tip they will start you 3 doses of 5mg a day. This is a complete waste of time/pills unless you're like 10 years old. It will do nothing. Take one 5mg to make sure you're not gonna have an allergic reaction or someshit - then just start on with doses of 10mg and you should begin to notice the difference.
>>559079Why are you trying to tear Anon down with your horseshit advice? Are you jealous? Instanced grass looks 1000x better than that ever could.
>>559068It looks really good but the grass is kinda jarring.... Your image prompted me to look at pictures of "desert grass" on google and it seems that most of the vegetation around these desert-y areas grows in more concentrated tufts?Unless I'm missing something here, it shouldn't be growing so evenly everywhere. It's also entirely green which wouldn't fly around a desert, usually they dry out and attain a more brown-ish, washed out coloration towards the tips.
Had to make the image smaller so I could actually upload.
How is Zbrush Core compared to 3Dcoat? Looking for a cheap sculpting program.

Doing some tests in Unity. I'm making the game in Unity.
>>559217Oh, don't mind the guy's shitty mouth topo. I did a quick retopo of goblin head over his ears.
>>559217Use a real engine for showcasing models, like marmoset or unreal.

How to you like my Altar? Still WIP
>>559247The side of the wood should be rings not grain, or the reverse.
medicore is okay for a beginner, right?
>>559257it's never ok.keep trying.
>>559258ugh.i think striving for perfection, especially in the beginning is the wrong idea. produce work. don't get caught up in making it perfect and never actually finishing anything.
>>559259Unless you push yourself to reach the perfect, you'll never get good. You'll never fix your mistakes or learn the correct way to do things.It doesn't matter if you reach that level of perfection, but the path to improve yourself and advance in any task is to aim for the best.
like said, its wip, I will continue to work on it
>>559078>>559080Hey, not /3/ related but, looks like I'll get to see a psychiatrist sooner then later. From what I read, the psychiatrist will treat what they feel is the dominate mental illness. Since I have been having thoughts of hanging myself everyday, it will most likely lead them to treating depression, yeah?I feel the depression stems from lack of achievement, though. Which, is largely due to my extreme difficulty focusing on a task.Hard to produce good work when your thoughts constantly shift elsewhere while making. I want to try ice cream, not anti what ever the fuck :/
I attempted another anime facethis time it's more flatterI think I might continue making animu girls until I get it right 100%. because this looks a bit better than my last one (though I'm not calling it good)
>>559288Always show an anime face with hair, remember than an anime characters head is <60%-70% hair
>>559247Try to make all the edges of the concrete part less smooth by breaking up like you did on the top and reducing the bevel amplitude itself.Change the material of the wood part, it looks like that part was made of a single chunk of wood wich would be almost imposible if the altar is meant to be 1:1 scale to real life.
>>559274I'm hard right now.
>>559274would love to see this textured.nice clean model.
>>559299that was a big tree
>>559288Nice second attempt anon, it's much better than your first! Glad to see you have chosen not to stray from The Path.A few more tips or things I would *personally* do differently:- It's okay to have a rounder nose. This is down to personal preference I guess, and if you think it looks okay from a side perspective, then great. I would bevel the line that cuts the nose in half and smooth out that part.You can have a fairly pointy-looking nose while still having it be "smooth" this way. But right now, it looks like you could slice someone's neck open with it.- Give some more flair to those eyelashes. They're naturally very "wild" and animu exaggerates this even more since they're that much bigger. Extrude some filaments outwards towards the ends, don't be afraid to add more volume to them. Modelling and adding in some eyebrows at a neutral position might seem like a small thing to do right now, but it also goes a long way to making it look way more natural.- Add in some hair. At some point you'll have to bite the bullet and do this, even though it can be dumb and complicated. Like >>559296said, the majority of anime heads are covered by hair, it can be a huge part of what gives a character, character. Until then, it can be very hard giving more accurate critique, as the face is simply unfinished without it.
>>559247your materials need work. they look like fancy plastic pretending to be wood and stone. Like an expensive resin figurine or something.
>>559247Normals look too strong and the scale of the textures are too big
>>559306Already working on it, should be done in a few days.
>>559371really nice job, brings back the nostalgiathis was my first computer i loved it and learned to code on itmy dad drilled a hole in the side and added a port so he could use his WWII aircraft (from a real plane) joystick which had 3 buttons, the port was connected to one of the keys i thinkjoysticks of that era were pretty badthe one in my pic was probably the best joystick for it
>>559317>>559296yeah, I'll create a full head from now onthe eyelashes are difficult for me because I guess it's a beginner thing. I'm not sure if youtube has tutorials for anime eyelashes or something similar.pic related was initially what I was going for.I guess I'll just look at more animu models thoughthanks for the critique
>>559068I like this.How long have you been doing 3D?>>559371Poast wires pls
low poly car made by blender tutorials 666
>>559407omg its sooo good please make a tutorial
worked on some improvements on the texture. let me know what you think.
>>559406Mesh is quite a bit too dense for a decent wireframe render (without resorting to extreme resolutions), so there are some artifacts, even in isoline display mode.
>>559403Good luck, looking forward to updates
>>559407makes me wanna kill myself
>>559410soon my friend>>559457glad you like my work this is my new work, its a 3d model of my future wife in fur suite made by me blender tutorials 666
>>559442Texture scale is way too small. normal/bump is way too strong.
>>559463Will go through the wips soon. Put this together real quick for this person.
>>559264Hi hopefully I'm not responding to this too late, but I had exactly the same problem when getting my diagnosis; I was depressed *because* of my ADHD and they were trying to treat the depression. I had to really emphasise the ADHD symptoms.Just really keep stressing that your depression is a result of what you suspect is ADHD - just keep talking about your lack of focus and attention and how you get distracted by other things and that you get depressed *after* you've been distracted and that you weren't looking for a distraction as a result of being depressed.Don't give up. They may ignore you a couple of times. Just keep going back. It took me a couple of times before I got a referral to an ADHD specialist. Good luck.
>>559502ya, this will be the case for me. thanks i will keep trying, senpai.
>>559463gives an ominous feeling
>>559406few years, but mostly hard surface and FX (fluids RBD and so on)
any thoughts on this?
>>559492>>559513thanks for suporting my channel i am blender tutorials 666 i will do the best of myself to teach the peolpe the wonders of 3d
How do I make the bottom half better for my scanner? It looks fucking retarded.
>>559526Select object, select all faces, go into smoothing group menu, click Clear All, then Auto Smooth.
>>559527I meant in a more aesthetic way. The silhouette looks dumb but I've tried multiple things to make it look better - I am not good at concepting.
>>559528firstly don't start your concepting in the modeling stage, do a bunch of silhouette drawings of shapesdon't even work on this one anymore, just do some drawings and then pick and mash and then do your modellingif you can't draw then just bash together a bunch of simple geo shapes until you get shape that you like and then work it from there
>>559530I was concepting in 3D but I think I'll go into photoshop and do some thumbnails since it sounds faster. Thanks.
>>559528Look at real world examples. Get references pictures, or, even better, real life objects. think about the topology beforehand, especialyl if youre going to subdivide (which you should, if you want it to look good). Draw edges on your reference in photoshop or with a pencil on actual objects you own IRL.Don't even think about modeling until you know exactly what you want the end result to look like and have a solid idea of how you're gonna get it done.
this is a work made by blender tutorials 666the city of the 666is a distopian city like grost in the shield style citerpunksoon the tutorials
>>558448this is the bust of the gost in a self character major, i, blender tutorials 666. made fot a group of the fansthey rejected my the interpretation of the her
I maed a sign
>>559572edges are too hard, bottlecaps are usually rounder
>>558489She doesn't look like she's seven and a half heads tall. Her face is too long so that might be why. Also, try to get the eyelids and eyelashes in, probably why she looks odd.
>>559572>>559628He's right but I assume its a sign not an actual botttlecap. Great job looks dope, stylized just enough for that sign feel as opposed to an actual bottlecap chilling on a stick
I'm making a script in Grasshopper for creating parametric escalators.If I make it right, I will just have to draw a line and an escalator will appear with various sliders to change dimensions a bit.
>>559667way too steep, and the steps going up are on level with the hand guardi hope someone draws a guy similar to pic related
>>559668say that to my face fucker see what happens!I can adjust the steepness via slider. It can produce stupid results, but it's convenient for fitting escalators into 3D models quickly without rebuilding anything. Just draw a curve, adjust the sliders so it looks okay and then bake. I know escalators typically come in set dimensions, but when I get a section and standard escalators don't match, I simply make my own instead of telling the client that his building is wrong.
>>559722While interesting, the don't really have an personality, they are very generic robots.
>>559672>>559667halp?How do I fix pic related? I can't figure out how to get the "stairs" to keep their roatation at 0 instead of rotating along the curve? help please?
Thanks guys, it is indeed just supposed to be a sign. added a bartop. gonna keep building stuff.
>>559722>>559734 is right. give one a tophat and monocle
Simple riggingI lost my computer about a month ago in a fire, and I finally got a new laptop today. Just jumping back in with some simple rigging.
>>559755Bingo, sounds perfect, do it
Hi everyone, I'm working on a character to throw into unity for a project for a class. Does anyone have any feedback?
>>559770Here's a close up of the shoes, I'm pretty happy with them.
>>559770At first glance, I notice that the middle of the torso is too angular. Maybe that's what you're going for, or maybe, you just haven't gotten that far. Either way, I'd suggest adding some curvy-ness to that part of the torso.Everything else looks pretty solid to me, although I'd like to see some materials if you have em.
>>559772Thank you, I'll definitely break up the shape of the torso a bit. It's a ways off but I was curious if the experienced anons here saw any serious flaws. No materials yet, will post progress though.
>>559745Idk about blender but I actually had the same problem in grasshopper I fixed it by dividing the guide curve with points and moving the stair geometry to each point rather than arraying them on a curve.
>>559770You more many more edge loops around the torso for proper deformation. Same goes for the knees; need at least 1 more loop through the middle of it. Shoulder could use 1 more.
just getting back into 3d.houdini seems the wave of he future and i need a new computer made this junk last over a few hours

Trying to make a cold looking room. Not physically, but if you where in the room it would't feel homely. aside from textures and white balance any ideas?
>>559783Looks like u made a room and didn't texture it cuz lazy. At least put some decent white textures on those models
>>559786I only just finished modeling the bulk, unsurprisingly I am going to texture it but I prefer to do a entire stage of 3D at ones.Modeling > lighting > texturing > rendering

my third animu head is complete.I half-assed the hair mesh because my excuse was that I never created a hair mesh fully.I'm hoping to get more patient in general as I continue to practice. It's always at the last few stages that I rush things because I get excited.
wip alien thingy
>>559820>>559821also, while on the topic of thicc i also made this based on the big girl from Samurai Jack
>>559823>>559824shadman? is that you?
>>559808surprised to see you post here. that's some nice progress since you posted that half finished WIP in the /agdg/ thread.Did you merge the hair or keep it separate in the end? It's hard to tell with the shading.
>>559836thanksI merged some parts of the hair, I kept them unmerged so the shadow would show better.but I'm going to watch cartoon/anime hair tutorials this time to understand it fully.
>>559808You're getting good fast, my man. This is your best attempt compared to your other two.- Try to make the hair more "banana-peel" like. It has a lot of volume inwards, you want to make the strands look like thick shells facing outward. Try to make the ends pointier as well. The sides of the hair are especially jarring, they look squashed. You want pretty curves, not lines. - Push out the upper lip a tiny hint? It looks like from the pictures that the lower lip is ahead of the upper lip. It should be the opposite. - Make the neck a bit thicker. No neck is that thin.Were you going for a Luka aesthetic? It turned out pretty similar. They grow up so fast, soon I won't have to give you any advice.
>>559840Oh, and one more thing! Put some highlights in the eye. You can either draw it into the texture or make a separate mesh for them, but from the method you chose, it's better to make separate meshes and position them next to the irises.
>>559210Sure does look like grimes! Where is a completed model at?
>>559838Post wires bruh
>>559827oh god, does my work look like shadman's style or something
>>559845like this?if you need a better view, tell me
>>559850object data -> draw wire>all edges
>>559186Do you know how to incorporate FB into Maya? I've tried loading the ocio file included with the folder in the Color Management tab but it just gives an error. Can't find anything online about it either.
This tree took a while. First tree I made in Maya. Used substance designer for the textures
>>559804try going with cold colors. that vibrant orange sunlight makes everything feel warm.harsher shadows as well maybe.the sky in the background makes it look like a summers day in paradise. try making it a dark and cloudy sky with atmospheric fog that obscures the vision of the nice green mountains.
>>559867i like the style. looks more like a branch than a tree, though. the scale is all out of wack
>>559783Make snow mountain background Add lots of grey
>>559869Thanks man, you're totally right. I changed the branch cards scale
>>559884Just lookd how many leaves there are. That is still not a tree. The branching doesn't look like the way a tree branches, the leaves don't cluster the way a tree does. it's a very young tree at best, but if that were the case the wood and leaves would all be a lot greener.
>>559885Again, you're right. I found some more reference for smaller trees like vine maples which are what I'm going for. I'll post progress. Thank you for the crit
>>559779yeah, this is all dumb and pointlessabstract 3d stuff is boring even when it looks cool, but this doesn't. you just made a bunch of crappy renders of ugly junk.learn to make something useful/meaningful.
forgot to post this one least night, this is old now by a few hours but still go to see textures and lighting.
>>559888anyone know of a good place to find hdr sky's?
not the best hdr but looks colder
>>559892Those chairs are looking like they're made of polished stone. The one on the right looks so polished that it's reflecting stuff around its seat.
>>559902oh damn, your right. its was meant to be glossy white leather, guess the gloss is too high
How do you like my brick material?
>>559907A lot about this is fucked. Bump is too strong all-over, you should definitely take some time to blend some nodes together and make a nicer microsurface, especially make sure to have a variation of flat and bumper areas (you can use Max/Lighten with a flat color to "shave off" the top of a map).I'm not sure what the pink damage is supposed to be referenced from, but it shouldn't all be the same color, and shouldn't be a hard break between damaged/undamaged areas (use a slope blur or something, at least).A couple other things you can do:-Give your bricks a very slight random rotation to uneven the interstices and make them look more hand-placed.-Create a second (identical) tile generator with luminance variation, and use it to change the color of individual bricks (they shouldn't all be the same color).-Use the aforementioned tile generator as the intensity input of a directional warp, to "move" your damage per-brick. making it so that these pits and cracks don't continue from a brick to another (this isn't the type of damage that would.)
On top my model, and on bottom what im trying to recreate.Mesh and custom vertex normals already done, this week ill be working on materials and will begin detail decal placement hopefully.
>>559969FUCKING KILL ME>pic related
>>559970is this for rendering? if yes then why everything is so blocky and lowpoly? go wild with polygons
>>559971also heavy photoshop on the ref image.oh and don't use 3d for ref next time, try to make the best version of whatever you skill allows you to do.
>>559971It's meant for real time, as videogame asset practice. Also I'm trying a new workflow for it:-Custom vertex normals + tileable textures so I dont't have to bake while having smooth edges and getting brutal texel density-Detail as decals; every bolt, rivet and panel line you see on the image im following, is added as a decal with its own geometry + trim textures. Vertex count skyrockets, but you dont lose much performance and you get insane texture detail for those little things.Those are the things they use for StarCitizen and I wanted to give them a try.
>>559973>-Custom vertex normals + tileable textures never heard of it, what the hell are you doing?
>>559974He's doing the Alien Isolation and Star Citizen method.
Quality's shit but Im making a vr zen garden
>>560009Looks good, slightly too hurcane-like on the trees if it's ment to be zen
>>560009lol the clouds are moving the wrong way.
Worked on another version, I hope this time its looking a bit better. Let me know what you think
>>560023im going to kill myself if you dont match up the tiles on the top right side
i dont know how : (
>>560023It's a problem of the mesh, not of the texture, on the vertical edge you see the texture is perfectly tileable, but there is a big seam on the right horizontal edge, combine an uv seam with that much of a bevel on the mesh, and you wont be able to properly unwrap it so it looks good...So the texture is alright (I'd say tiles should be less rough and the concrete in between should be rougher), but it looks kind of bad because of the mesh used to showcase it.
>>560027it seems extreme, but I feel the same wayplease bro
>>560027don't do it anon i love you!
There you go. Also adjusted the roughness a bit
>>560041You just saved anons life
How are my floor textures looking?(You'll probably need to zoom in...)
>>560054a lot of the stone/concrete seems to have a very samey procedural noise look to it
>>560054very flat, just like the rest of your scene.
snibeddy snaban anatomically incorrect crabit's just a prop bro
>>560010that makes sense. I feel a little bit more relaxed now
>>559824Retopo'd and starting on a rig; god, weighting in maya is so annoying
>>560080>that>anatomically incorrect crabHah, you are like little baby
>>560112Looking forward to Stardew VR.
>>560123started this in the morning
>>560185Did you have to give it boobs? What is wrong with you people.
>>560188The idea is that in the future 3d will comprise of mostly porn, so they try to yet as much practice as possible. All the while this is going on with pretty much every aspiring 3d artist so there will be fierce competition. The only ones who will accelerate in this niche field are the people who do both erotica story telling and 3d at the same time.
>>560188those are poison sacs not boobs, muh artistic integrity :^)
>>560194awful poison sacs. It doesnt read as a poison sack. Take it back to the 2d design stage and try again. F-U-N-D-A-M-E-N-T-A-L-S
>>560195B-b-but my autistic integrity!1But for real, I'll probably get rid of the breasts, they felt right at the time, but I really just want some sort of breastplate-type protrusion in the breast area. I had it flat to begin with, but it just didn't feel right to me.
>>560203I know it's a tree frog but what about that lower mouth thing some frogs have that expand when they ribbit.
I made some people. Next Im going to teach them to feel pain and sadness.
>>560229Where the hoes at bruh, you got a sausage fest going on here
>>560229nice toupees they got there
>>560235its a zen garden for gays
>>560235I added some girls. The bald female children are freaking me out right nowhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2oMbeTek9g&feature=youtu.be
>>560270great stuff so far mate
>>560270I'd fuck some of those kids
>>560185new chest, and finished feet
>>560282T H I C C
>>559970Something as high profile as a warning light shouldn't have an 8-sided silhouette in 2017.
>>558448working on a cinmatic version of mafia jinx from league of legends>will reply with the shit im workin on for it
>>560290render of the eye shader >made the veins more extensive since this render
>>560290test animation with the game gun model, and the remodeled violin case
>>560290her mini gun>dark grey is the upgraded pieces, light blue is the game model
>>560293>>560290her mini gun>dark grey is the upgraded pieces, light blue is the game model>im also an idiot that didnt attach the file
>>560290grenade necklace also done
>>560290better look at the violin case model
>>560290>>560291>>560292>>560293>>560296>>560297this aint your personal blog bro
>>560290>mafia jinxYou seem to have mistyped "worst jinx" by accident.I'd take it back to the drawing board and pick a better jinx skin. That isn't the worst jinx skin.
>>560306 the in game skins vs a cinematic skin would be way different. >i actually like the 1920s mobster style of jinx in that skinthis skin would probably need the highest skill and be the most impressive out of all of the 5 she has. >the cloth alone on that skin is a tough job with all of the frills and interaction with her hairhaving to actually model the guitar case and resize/redesign each piece to fit inside the case isnt as easy as it sounds >>560292> ( in game it just scales up as the case opens)the original has already been done ( its ok )star guardian would just look like a generic anime shitthe slayer skin wouldnt look nearly as good as mafia as a cinematic>firecracker might be neat tho
>>560315Firecracker would probably look the best if you don't want your stuff to devolve into anime. To me, the skin makes her look like an overdressed South American pelican. To each his own though.If you're doing it for the technical challenge, I really have no retorts against that.
>>560322oh yea, its purely for my demo reel
>>560291i don't think it should bulge like that
>>560331That may be, but what you think is irrelevant. The actual anatomy of the cornea does bulge out very slightly.
>>560285I just noticed that, changed. Any other thing that should be fixed?
>>560377The black wire going from the floor to the door panel on left side of the door both looks like it flattens at the curves and should have more loops devoted to the bends.
>>560377Compared to the concept art, a lot of your pipes are too thin and have much sharper corners/fillets.
>>560373yeah, its like that
>>560373i wasn't talking about the cornea, i was talking about the conjunctiva. pic related: left one is how it should look like, right one is what your model looks like to me.
>>560407could it be because i have a supporting edge for the lens, the cornea is a separate mesh
>>559802>making a 3d model using another person's 3d model portfolio piece as a referencewhy do people do thisare there really people this retarded in the world
>>560041it looks like raw clay. what material are you trying to make these tiles out of?
>>558448give me the hugs!!!!i are the tutorials bread in sandwitch?feets?
>>560417Give an explanation why we shouldn't, anon.
>>560417thinking a painting is a 3d render>what the fuck
>>560428>failing to see an image is a paintover of a 3d renderwhat the fuck
>>560417It should't matter, if there chair was based of a real chair or even if it wasn't it just used to get the shape. Using the shape as reference, and a combination of real work examples you can make a realistic chair from a 3d refrance. I get what your saying, using another 3d image a refrance breeds errors but as long as you can back up the image with real thing it shouldn't matter.
>>560435I looked the image up, it say concept art but looks like it could be a paint over so I'm not sure tbo
Wrench guy here from old thread. Did another version of the old model. Do you like?
It ended up looking like shit. Im going to kill my fucking self.
goal was to build something like this
Canon AE-1, just finished the high poly
remake of this jacket
>>558448Was wondering if it is possible to create two different UVs for one mesh in Z-brush? For instance, a UV map for the head. Then, a UV map for the rest of the body. I've researched online, and couldn't find any resources on the subject. Thanks guys, here's what I'm working on atm.
>>560475nigga your lighting is fucked, your textures are fucked, and your vertex normals are fuckedthere isn't a secret to lighting other than looking at how other people light their things (and not just in games, irl and in film as well). Make your light sources static and bake lightmaps with lightmass and it should automatically look a lot better (you get GI and all sorts of shit with it). Protip: pros don't use as many lights as you might think, and they rarely go outside of the light temperature spectrum (red to blue) without a good reason. Good lights are also rarely pure white, look up a light temperature chart for lightbulbs and see where you should rank your lights depending on their type.your materials I dunno, look up basics to PBR if you haven't alreadyfor your vertex normals, google "weighted vertex normals" and it will unfuck your shapes.
>>560485The metal housing of the dslr prism has some pronounced beveling that's missing in your model. I would also say to bevel some of those hard edges a little bit more, they're too hard even for a "realistic" model.
>>560475Managed to make it look better.Result is better than I initially expected, but even then I'm not too happy with it. Though, it was useful for me to learn how to do a few things with decals and stuff so I can improve.I should learn proper Unreal lighting...
>>560495see>>560498The problem with first pic is that blender's fbx exported broke my smoothing groups and made lots of smoothing errors; because of that I didn't even tried lighting the scene (first pic doesnt have any ligths placed, only scene default sky light).Not going to finish it though, but it will help me for future projects for sure.
>>560475dude your asset workflow is completely fucked.go on digital tutors or something and learn how to make assets.learn about smoothing groups in particular and stop fucking with settings you shouldn't fuck with
>>560498https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bCLIQXm8bs&index=7&list=PLz5LAMF4HJtaj1BjgnKoH-78Oo14Pi88Awatch this shit and take notes..
>>560502lol wrong video..watch Session 2.1 to 2.3https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aT6pU46qoA
>>560503Thanks, I will watch those series, seems useful.
>>560493don't know about zbrush, but maya does it with uv sets. maybe thatll get your googlefu jump started
Modeling in progress.
>>560542what dat mouth do?
>>560544kinda soft and lumpy
>>560041Specularity seems off, what material is this supposed to be?Also that bevel is waaay too round
>>560128Superior crab coming through...
>>560603serious question... I have rigged this crab with armatures and suddenly (randomly) they all dissapeared... They are all still in the object list, but they arent actualy there, and I cannot pose or click on them. It is not a hiding issue, and it is not a layer issue, nor is it a armature X-ray option related issue... any ideas?
>>560604go to your scene outliner panel and untick the lock icon on the crab's armature entry.
>>560502>>560503Happy you sent the wrong video, these videos are fucking great. I recommend anyone to watch them all.
>>560674Since anon recommended those to me I'm binge watching them; they are fucking awesome, the guy definitely knows about what he's teaching.
>>560422>>560471its unprofessional and no one will take you seriouslyits like if you were applying for traditional art school and all your portfolio pieces were established cartoon characters like bugs bunny and shitalso if you're directly copying someone's topology for a model it would be like tracingemployer want to see your own skills and creativity, now copying someone else's workyou should either be modelling from real life or from imagination, or from concept art that was specifically made for you, if you're serious about building a portfolio
>>560690> topology> creativity
>>560690I get what your saying, but achvis usaly isn't about designing something. From my experience it's working from a cad file or sketches so using someone elses concept art or even a 3d model dosn't seem like a big deal as long as your not "tracing" the tapoligy I don't see the negative. It's not like my room is coping the image, I'm using a single asset from the concept art for my room.
>>560690>implying you aren't tracing when modelling from a real life room that's full of things other people have designed themselves at some point
>>560054>>558530What are you using for textures? Substance Designer/Painter? Any chance you could show a picture without any materials?
working on this lion this guy is retopologized. If I were to make this guy lying down and covered in fur is it alright that his anatomy isn't 100%? and should I start sculpting with a tablet instead of a mouse?
>>560814you can do whatever you want with it as long as the topology is good and the rigging is good.> and should I start sculpting with a tablet instead of a mouse?if you like sculpting in general, you seem to have a good headstart
>>560690it's really hard to innovate on topology and if it works it works why bother changing that. Should I start using a bunch of spiral loops on models now cause it's less mainstream?
>>560690That's like saying "copying" realistic anatomy is tracing.
>>560009How does the wind work on the trees? Are you using a specific shader?
