How do you do it /3/? I'd like to learn how to model anime characters in maya/zbrush and have them look like their book/television counterparts. There is this photo of Goku that's really well done, and the various angles of the face look largely in part, exactly like the show. How do you replicate this?
model in modo 11, sculpt in zbrush
>>561765What's so good about Modo for this?Not sarcastic, seriously asking. I'm semi-new to 3d modeling, so I'm not fully aware of all the tools out there.
>>561766it has all the right tools in all the right places. Its years ahead of its closest competitor, max
>>561766You could do the pre-sculpt modeling in any package, it's 100% personal preference.
>>561764it's just like modeling anything else. you just need to get a good front and side reference to work with
>>561772That's what I'm wondering - like first starting points.>>561767I'll look into it, thanks!>>561770And post sculpt in zbrush for detail?I'm trying to create a character for a 3rd person perspective in Unity, so that's the aim atm.
>>561775>That's what I'm wondering - like first starting points.look up character modeling tutorials for whatever program you decide to use, and put that image i gave you in the background. that's how I made Cell. just make sure you model the arms straight out to the sides, it makes weight painting much easier.
>>561764modeling is like drawing but 3dstudy the shapes and forms, and its pretty easy to replicate.fuck those fabric thothis shit is hard unless you practice over and over
The side view is where most people fuck up.Get multiple reference shots from show of the character you're modelling and use them massively.This is a good example of workflow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0hQmaCLEC4
>>563152That's exactly my goal, to not fuck up the angles. If I can model the character so accurately, that if I just stuck a cell shader on it and took a screenshot, it would look nearly indistinguishable from a handdrawn version of it. I'd like to make a fighting game for my own purposes, but model the character to represent the artists work.
>>563293making it indistinguishable from the drawing is going to be difficult, but I definitely wouldn't mind seeing your progress. Are you making a strictly DBZ game, or will it have other franchises in it as well?
>>563295I'm actually considering Ranma. I feel like that's a fighting game waiting for someone to run with it, but considering all the copyright stuff, chances of it getting off the ground are slim. So in that case, I just want to make a 3d adventure/fighting game.
>>563296Other than the face and the hair, I don't think it should be that hard. The real bitch will be finding a character sheet of the male Ranma to work from, but I can probably get a lot just from shots from the book/show.
>>561764Anybody tried making an anime character in blender?I've seen guides on youtube (some looked really good) but I was wondering if anybody here has had any experience doing it.
>>563302I made this >>561779 if you have any questions I'll answer what I can
>>563303Sweet work. Was it hard finding references for it? What did you search term did you use? Have you ever used flat shaders to give him a more "cartoon" look?
>>563305Thanks a lot! It really wasn't hard at all. I just searched for the character name and side view, front view, or character sheet. And no I've never tried using cartoon shaders. I wanted to make him look as realistic as possible without losing his original design. Also he transforms.
>>563306Damn that's fucking cool.
>>563307thanks!This form still needs work
>>563306>>563309please try a cartoon shadera PBR shader don't do justice for anime modelseven a dota2 shader
>>563293Study some of this if you want to get it looking more accurate to a drawing:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhGjCzxJV3EGuilty Gear Xrd modelled their characters in 3D so look as accurate to the older 2D sprites by using normals/UV tricks and making sure the animation itself followed typical 2D animation methods (squash/stretch etc)
>>561779>>563306>>563309This needs a Cell Shader.
