I wanna start retopologizing my high res; I want it to be in the 5k - 10k range. What are some good resources for retopology? I see so many different ways of setting up the loops and such, but I just want a source that has close ups of big trouble spots (pelvis, fingers, back of knee, shoulder)

Just do it, man.

Load up blender/ maya/ zbrush.

Start retopo.

Look up some topology on google for reference.

Make sure all of your edge rings are even numbers.

Add more topology on joints for deformations.

The first time you do it you will learn a lot about it.

try topogun

starting with good topology via box modeling

zbrush retopo crashes a lot for me. It's also not as good as topogun

Real sculptors use clay. Or foam, if they're selling out to the fursuiters.

Imo blender is just a lot faster to work with
>>
>>561228
Blender is faster to retopo than anything listed about? Why do you faggots suck Blenders asshole so hard?
>>
>>561231
probably some nigger that only uses 10% of the program and think its the best shit ever

3d Coat, topogun, also Maya Quad Draw is better

Look at existing characters and see how they're done. Search Pinterest for references.

Having some rigging experience will help, you will understand where the problems arise in tricky deformation areas. Use an autorigger (Quick Rig, AdvancedSkeleton) and try to get it deforming correctly. When you get jaggy erroneous deformation you will know what to fix.

were you only working in black? you're missing a lot of secondary forms and some of the ones that you have (esp the shoulder) just look bad. I would sculpt more before moving to retop.]

As far as retop goes, if really depends on what you want to get out of it, just try to get as many smooth loops as you can on the "tubes" of the body (torso, arms, legs). For hands, do it how you would box model it while keeping a seam straight down the middle across the fingers -- you want this seam on the feet as well.
